Interview Episode — w/ Lewmoth

Interview Episode — w/ Lewmoth

October 25, 2020

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  We're breaking the formula a bit this week, as we had the pleasure to sit down with Lewmoth, a game composer & sound designer who's worked on a number incredible indie games—with even more still in the works.

We had already played stuff like Lianthus & Control Co., but Lewmoth has worked on an incredibly wide variety of games, as well as within many different musical styles & genres. 

We'll be back with a normal episode next week, but we're looking forward to lining up some more guest interviews in the future.  Stay tuned!

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, we're finally getting into some of the recently released heavy-hitters on Nintendo Switch, starting things off with a discussion on Super Mario 3D All-Stars.  Continuing the Mario celebration, John checks out Mario's Super Picross, which recently came to North America for the first time via Nintendo Switch Online.

From there, Kevin highlights Guardian Sphere and a few other indie gems from a team of brothers, Pixel-boy & AAA.  He also gets his first taste of a Project Touhou game & is really digging the insanity that is Touhou: Luna Nights.

DJ follows up on his brief DOOM: Eternal experience from a few weeks ago now that he's polished it off and he loved it from start to finish!  We stick around in Hell for the rest of the episode, as we're all still trying to escape from Hades, the recently released action roguelike from Supergiant Games—well, all of us except for DJ!

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  Kevin's been gushing about New Super Lucky's Tale like crazy lately, so Randall & Tina booted it up this week to plow through a few more levels; once again, thanks to Xbox Game Pass

Speaking of Game Pass, Randall & Kevin are loving the retro-arcade vibes of Hotshot Racing, which hearkens back to SEGA's best low-poly arcade racers, Outrun & Virtua Racing.

After that, DJ & Kevin dig deep into a couple of turn-based roguelikes, starting with Invisible, Inc., just before Kevin's PS Plus subscription expires.  After that, we finally get around to discussing Haque from Kevin Cole & the rest of the team at SuperTry Studios.

Randall & Kevin close us out with a commitment to play & discuss The Gardens Between in the near future, once again thanks to our Xbox Game Pass subscriptions.

 

Discussed:

New Super Lucky's Tale -  00:01:55

Hotshot Racing  -  00:09:39

Invisible, Inc. -  00:17:40

Haque  -  00:30:18

Syncing up on Xbox Game Pass  -  00:46:04

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  DJ kicks us off this week with a trifecta of games that he's been playing since we chatted last.  He's conquered Civilization VI from virtually every angle, earned a victory in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and started up DOOM: Eternal—and he's encouraging us all to check it out!

Speaking of conquering games, Randall finally wraps up Monster Boy & The Cursed Kingdom and shares a few general metroidvania thoughts after seeing the credits roll!  And now that Monster Boy is wrapped up, he's hopping back on the board for some more Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 HD.

John scooped up inbento from Afterburn games right before we started recording and got sucked into the clever puzzle mechanics, wordless storytelling, & super cute aesthetics.

Kevin closes things out with Indivisible, a sidescrolling platformer with turn-based combat that draws close comparisons to the Mario & Luigi series of RPGs on Nintendo's handheld consoles.

 

Discussed:

Civilization VI  -  00:01:55

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds  -  00:06:42

DOOM: Eternal  -  00:10:04

Monster Boy & The Cursed Kingdom  -  00:13:15

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 HD  -  00:17:50

inbento  -  00:24:04

Indivisible  -  00:33:30
