Matt Interviews Agustín Cordes

Hi, guys, I'm back, this time with the first part of an excellent interview with Agustín Cordes, the Argentina-based designer and developer of Scratches and the forthcoming Asylum. Both games are fine examples of horror adventures, with first-person gameplay and painstaking, artistic production. Here, Agustín talks about Asylum's engine (formerly called Kinesis), as well as the design of Scratches, the state of indie gaming, and much, much more.

Oh, and check out that new Armchair Arcade splash screen!

Matt Chat 92: Mail Order Monsters

This week we take a look at Mail Order Monsters, the 8-bit classic designed by Paul Reiche III, Evan Robinson, and Nicky Robinson. If you think Pokémon was an original concept, check out this 1985 action strategy game from Electronic Arts. Design and evolve your corral of monsters, then pit them against the computer or friends on your Commodore 64 or Atari 400/800. It's loads of fun, but it ain't easy! Download the mp3 audio here or at iTunes.
