Dev Diary #16 – Mike Blackney (Team Fanclub)
Horror has always been something that’s inspired Mike Blackney, and through his days working mobile games, cricket titles and much more, ideas had been stewing. Finally, they culminated in Dead Static Drive, and so Mike joins Paul in this new entry of Dev Diary to talk about his game development journey, the origins of Dead Static Drive, what it’s like to know nothing of Cricket, yet develop a game based upon it, presenting your game on the Xbox E3 stage and much more.
Born and bred on the Super Nintendo era, Paul relishes any opportunity to sink his teeth into an RPG, action or platformer. Despite being an owner of all major platforms, Paul does have a particular love of the Playstation family of consoles – take only a few minutes to skim through his Twitter and you’ll see him ranting about the next big thing on PS4. We swear he’s sane.
