Crackpot(s) Interview: Insecticide &c. 06 Feb, 2008, 23:55 / 10 comments

In the never-ending quest to keep our readers fully in the loop about upcoming exciting games, Mojo today brings you an exciting giganto-interview with Larry Ahern and Michael Levine at Crackpot Entertainment!

Now that the LucasArts-born team at Crackpot have nearly finished their eagerly-awaited first game Insecticide for PC and Nintendo DS, we thought it'd be a great time to ask them one or two (or quite a few) questions.

Disclaimer: Michael and Larry are not actually flies.

Additional: If that's not enough Insecticide for you, there's a really good preview of the DS version at DS Fanboy that really gets a good feel for how the game is going to play.

Now that you've done all that, isn't it about time you pre-ordered? Those art-books are still available, y'know.

    Is it me or does that main character look like some weird offspring between Raz (psychonauts) and any given spider?

    If you have a quick look at the interview I did ask the guys that question. Peter Chan did the design for both Raz and Chrys, but apart from the general head-shape there's not MUCH resemblance really. I think it's just his kooky design style.

    Good interview. It's clearer now that the game's [b]actually[/b] part-adventure, which means that I might be getting this! Woohoo!

    As for the Secret of Monkey Island question: I always thought that the concluding joke about the game was that there is no secret about Monkey Island. It's just a "fake" title that never delivers. It's funnier that way, albeit cruel (and yes, back then, most of the jokes I'd come across were like that, so that conclusion came naturally).

    You think we're one of those fancy-schmancy sites with edit buttons?! Hah!
  • MrSneeze on 07 Feb, 2008, 02:29…
    Well, you do have images and stuff... Ooh, and colours! So, aintcha?
  • Zaarin on 07 Feb, 2008, 02:39…
    Well, yes, but the edit button is an elusive critter our code monkeys haven't been able to capture yet!
