Otto Matic Post-Mortem Interview at IMG
12:29 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Otto Matic, the new sci-fi action adventure from Pangea Software and Aspyr Media, recently went gold and will be making its way to stores in early December, just in time for Christmas.


IMG recently caught up with Pangea's Brian Greenstone to chat about the game he just finished. Here's a taste:

IMG: Tell us a bit about how you came up with the idea.


Greenstone: The idea came about from two completely different game ideas I was pondering. One was to do Nanosaur 2, and the concept was to have it in space. The other idea was a Flying Saucer Flight Simulator; I'd been mulling that idea around for years. I had always been a huge fan of the old 1950's sci-fi movies, so it occurred to me that I could go with the Saucer Flight Sim idea, but just as a small part of a bigger game with that theme. Bugdom was such a huge hit that it made sense to do another action-adventure genre anyways, so Otto came from all of that.
