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.")
This discussion has been archived. No new comments can be posted.

    This generation of consoles is already waining, and the GC definately did not die. Nintendo released some of the best games on any console, and did them exclusively, and continued to make money. They may not be the powerhouse they once were, but they're still making some fantastic games (overall I decided that Metroid Prime was the best gaming experience I've ever had), and are unveiling some new hardware soon, and definately still look to be around for a while. I for one plan to continue buying every console with a Nintendo logo on it for as long as I can. B)
