Last Sunday's Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) was slightly intoxicated foray into the mind of two tattooed barbarian warriors who just happen to make videogames.
Though I don't get the sense that Vieko Franetovic and Mike Lohaus are the type of guys who are particularly motivated to sending overt autobiographical messages in their games, it didn't take long to see the parallels the design of Krunch and the temperament of its creators. Competitive, wild, carefully organized, aggressive, and unpredictable, these dudes take intense fun very seriously.
They were also kind enough to share their plans for two new games. Binge is a follow up toKrunch, but it plays completely differently. While Krunch focuses on relatively powerless little cyclops orb, Binge follows a giant tentacled Kaiju called "The Creature" as it travels the world destroying everything in its path. To further diversify, Vieko and Mike are also working on racing game about large Luchadors riding small dogs called Chihuahua Libre. The ideas can't stop bursting forth from these men's brains.
