Continuing the Interview Series here on the channel, I recently sat down with Brandon Thacker, developer of Pixel Push Football for the Infinity Game Table to talk about his inspiration and experience working with Arcade1Up. There was so much to cover that we had to spread this interview over 2 videos to cover both the amazing game Brandon came up with and the story of how Pixel Push made it from Mobile to the IGT based off of a direct request from the Arcade1Up team.
I’ve covered all of the IGT releases and I was probably the most excited to see Pixel Push show up and was pleasantly surprised to find how well it played. There are massive amounts of games that could work on the IGT, but it’s a Chicken and Egg game. There needs to be more uptake of the table in the market, but you need to have the games to generate interest for consumers. On the other hand, you need to have a lot of devices in the market to generate the revenue for developers to make the investment in supporting a unique platform. It’s a delicate balance to maintain, and thankfully there are devs out there like Brandon who are willing to take the risk to see their vision come to life.
In no way do I or the channel ask devs for money or take any money to promote games. These videos are meant to help bring awareness to the community on what it takes to make the games we all love. I hope you enjoy this series and I’m looking forward to bringing even more developers on the channel to discuss their creations.
