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.
