1 – When did you first get the idea and inspiration to create Super Ubi Land?
Super Mario Bros 3 and Donkey Kong Country were the two platformers that I had the most fun playing as a child. What stood out most to me was how vast the worlds were in those games and how simple yet fun the gameplay is. Most likely, my first 5 or so games will be heavily inspired from games that I grew up on. Those were the games that stayed with me throughout my life and will show in my work.
In addition, our good friend Emily Rogers mentioned that former Retro Studios and NST (Nintendo Software Technology) employees are working on the Wii U port of the game. Good news all around!
