Interview with Lead Game Designer René Laurent of SuperHippo Games about their latest game Pirate Legends TD

SuperHippo Games, based in Ireland, released Pirate Legends TD late last week in the Play Store. Yes, I know what you are thinking. There are an abundance of tower defense games out there. However, few of them take place on the high seas and are full of such robust action as displayed in Pirate Legends. I was given the opportunity to find out more about the game, the company that produced it and how SuperHippo plans to impact the mobile gaming arena.

Interview with Josh Presseisen, Founder and CEO of Crescent Moon Games. Connoisseur of all things retro.

Josh Presseisen: My first memory of video games would be my aunt’s Atari, I used to play Combat and Pac-man on it when I’d go to visit her.

It was very exciting back then! I was very into video games. When I was young I had a few computers that my uncle got for me, the Timex Sinclair 1000, which also came with a game programming book. I’d spend hours messing around with the games in the book and trying to make my own. The coolest computer I had for programming games was the TI–994a – it looked like a Delorean!

When the NES was launched, I was really obsessed with Super Mario Brothers, Zelda, and Metroid.

There was a brief time of a few years where I wasn’t doing video game stuff, which was in my band years – I was in a band and touring for a while, then got a job doing graphics stuff. My interest in video games returned after that.
