In the arcade world it’s hard to miss mega-hits like Defender, Robotron 2048, Smash TV, and Crusin’ USA and while many designers of classic arcade games have moved on to different things, the designer behind the aforementioned games is still making arcade games through his own company known as Raw Thrills’. That man of course is Eugene Jarvis and from the website Newcitychicago.com we have an interesting and long interview with Mr. Jarvis that includes a good look at how he runs Raw Thrills’. I think that it’s interesting to note some similarities between the laid-back atmosphere of RT and the laid-back atmosphere of other arcade giants of the past like Atari. In addition to a look at how things go on behind the scenes at RT, they also discuss Jarvis’ outlook on how videogames have evolved over the years and where he thinks that they will go in the future. It’s always good for a hardcore gamer like myself to hear how he despises things like endless franchises of certain games from certain big game companies – from every indication we have when I talked with Betson at ASI, some of RT’s new games will be something new and fresh, which I think is something that arcades need. Anyways, hit the link below to read the full interview.
