IMG Interviews Otto Matic Author
11:16 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Brian Greenstone has been the champion of Mac-first, Mac-only development for quite some time, leading the way with a series of 3D action titles that appeal to young and old. With Nanosaur, Bugdom and Cro-Mag Rally as bundle games on certain Mac systems, it can be said Brian has changed the way Macintosh systems are perceived as gaming solutions. IMG sat down with Brian recently to discuss his work-in-progress, Otto Matic. We also quizzed him on subjects such as game publishing and Mac OS X. Here's a sample:

IMG: What are some of the "cool things" that people will see in Otto Matic?

Greenstone: My favorite thing to see is when humans get abducted by the alien saucers. That just cracks me up every time! They also get to see saucers irradiate a farmer's crop which creates giant, mutant, killer vegetables. On the Slime planet they'll get to use a freeze gun to freeze the enemies and then shatter them with a quick punch of the fist. On the Jungle planet they'll see Otto drink a growth potion which makes him turn into a giant so he can do battle with the giant lizards and insects there. On the Planet of Fire & Ice they'll see volcanoes grow up out of the ground right before their eyes and then explode shooting out flaming lava boulders! I don't want to give it all away, but suffice to say that there's just tons of cool stuff to see in Otto Matic!
