Out of the games you have created so far, 8-BIT Killer really appealed to me the most. It is clear that classic games such as those on the NES have been big influences. Why did you choose to use retro games as your influences?

Classic games are more focused on simple rules that can be understood in a few seconds, unlike games nowadays. They can be fun from the first moment to the end, as they require intense interaction (just like pinball, soccer or kids games).

I think mainstream games are too wide to be played that way. They require tutorials, learning controls, following stories and dialogues, etc. It seems to be more ‘entertainment’ than ‘fun’
