10-05-2015

Matsuba!

In this episode we don our berets as we take a trip through the channel tunnel and arrive in France to take a look at Delphine Software’s iconic games - Another World and Flashback.

We discuss both games’ creation and influence and how they told a story in a unique style unseen in games of the time; and how it felt to be in the shoes of Lester Knight Chaykin and Conrad B. Hart. In these two cinematic classics and we touch on how Delphine went from being a european mainstay in gaming to…..errrrr Shaq-Fu??!!??
