Tokyo 42: Interview with SMAC Games — The Combo Podcast

A fantastic episode with Sean Wright and Maciek Strychalski of SMAC Games, the brothers who developed Tokyo 42 here in London.

Tokyo 42 is perhaps one of the most unique titles of this year and recent memory, with a beautiful blend of game design, mechanics, and music.

This episode is all about their experience developing the game; the difficulties they faced and the lessons they learned.

It was an absolute pleasure to speak to them and I hope you find this episode informative and enjoyable.

Tokyo 42 is available on Steam and Xbox One with a Playstation 4 release around July.

I am slowly transitioning off this blog and moving to the Combo Blog (salimbo.com), where you can find my articles as well as the podcast.

Just Launched the Combo Blog

So I want to move away from this dated WordPress site as it just serves as hosting my podcasts. I want to write gaming articles on the Combo Blog under the Combo brand but continue the podcasts without the need for additional webpages.

It’s a beautiful site, if I do say so myself, and runs incredibly quickly. I had a lot of trouble setting it up the way I wanted with all the infrastructure, but finally got the speed and scalability I wanted. WordPress is quite “heavy” and I feel it affects the experience of what the website is about – just reading.

The Combo Podcast – Long Time No See

Combo is back!

We had a lot of things to catch-up on. The Mass Effect series, Shogun 2Rise of the Tomb Raider and more. Lots of good discussions, and even came up with a solution to solve world hunger by pulling a few sliders.

This episode was incredibly fun to make, so let me know if you enjoyed it.

The Combo Podcast – Architecture of Deus Ex: Human Revolution

A serious discussion on architecture and design in video games. The guest Simon (that’s Dr Simon to you!) with a PhD in Architecture has a strong understanding and appreciation of the art. He has been fascinated by video game design in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a game that really stands out with the attention to detail it pays to design.

A wonderful collection of professionally taken screenshots here.
