It’s a special day, a day of freaking out and trying to acquire a shiny new SNES classic. What better day then to publish this special SNES themed episode of Devs Play – our web series in which we play classic games with their creators, and talk about how they were made.
This episode features Dylan Cuthbert of Q-Games (Pixel Junk Eden, The Tomorrow Children) chatting with us about Star Fox, for which he was the lead programmer. In this 50 minute episode we talk about the origins of the game, the challenges of making it, Nintendo design philosophies, the story of the lost vinyl soundtrack, Star Fox 2, and Miyamoto’s smoking habits.
This Star Fox episode of Devs Play is free to all, and available on our youtube channel right now!
