Rockfish Games from Hamburg, Germany, are the makers of Everspace, which is financed (among others) through the most successful kickstarter campaignto date for a German video game. For the whole day we had the chance to look the team over the shoulder and were just being nerds with them in between takes. The hospitality we recieved will not be forgotten and made our trip to Hamburg worth while.
The office of the newly found development studio Daedalic West is in Düsseldorf, which when looking from Cologne is only a stone’s throw away. So we were able to go there on an afternoon to have an elaborate interview with Creative Director Andreas Suika about the setting of “Space”, the mood of and between developers and, of course, his newest project “The Long Journey Home“.
After some collateral recordings, the “real” principal photography for our documentary “space.games.film” started at gamescom in Cologne, where we captured lots of impressions and also met and interviewed developers. Among other things we had the chance and met the godfather of space games himself, Chris Roberts, and asked him a few questions about space games.
As passionate gamers ourselves we’re interested in pretty much everything that has to do with our favorite games. So why not show how it works behind the scenes? That’s why we have this blog. Here we’ll show snippets of our work and other interesting things.
Originally we had a forum, but since the GDPR and most of all because of the great effort it takes to usefully run a forum, we discarded it. But feel free to comment under the blog posts. Furthermore we’ve set up a Discord server (see social buttons below or on the right on this page). Be advised: be nice! Otherwise posts will be deleted without warning. We’re not going to establish an extensive set of rules. We presume common sense, even though that’s what might malfunction during an intensive gaming session. 😉 Have fun!
By the way, we are gradually translating the whole homepage including the blog posts, but that obviously will take some time…
