Recent UCSC graduates, Max Weinberg, Peter Hunter and John Peters came into KZSC to talk about their company Team Krinoid and their games.
The Team Krinoid talked about the evolution of their Santa Cruz Game Company and their new game entitled Bunny Run where the player takes the perspective of a bunny running from trouble. We talked about how the team came up with the idea of the game.
Team Krinoid was founded by the three after their success with the iPad game, Syz: EG that won the Game of the Year and Grand Prize at the first ever Games and Playable Media’s SAMMY’s event in June 2011.
Syz E.G. is a galactic adventure game that brings innovation to the space shooter genre with multi-touch controls, various weapons and abilities, a unique story, and a mixture of tactical top-down gameplay and fast-paced side-view action. The game is available in the Apple App Store and looks like a lot of fun. The game was developed with a large team of ten people.
Bunny Run is developing faster due than Syz E. G. because of experience and the Team’s division of responsibilities between the three partners. Max does the artwork. Peter writes the story and music. John does the programming.
