Jeff Minter Discusses Unity, Llamas 13

Posted by simoniker
from the long-live-the-yak dept.
Thanks to GameSpy for their interview with cult programmer Jeff Minter, currently working on the psychedelic GameCube shooter, Unity. The interviewer points out that Minter's "passion for fusing music, visual effects, and gameplay remains his strong focus", and goes on to talk to him about the choice of platform ("...the 'Cube may not have so many titles as some of the others... [but] a higher percentage seem to be really excellent games with a reputation for great playability"), the continuation of his 'virtual light machine' trilogy ("Unity will contain a full version of VLM-3 which players will unlock as they play the game"), and his ever-present love for the bovine ("there probably won't be anything as overt as flying yaks or anything... I am sure people would be disappointed if I didn't slip the odd beast in there somewhere.")

    Jeff Minter? New game? Woohoo!

    But wait! He really does choose his platforms - after what happened to the Atari ST, Falcon and Jaguar then the Nuon, we can only conclude that the Gamecube's financial death is imminent...

    Shame, too.

The trouble with being punctual is that people think you have nothing more important to do.

Working...
