Final Focus features the interviews conducted on TSSZ News Final, which airs Saturday nights at 10:30PM ET on TSSZ Plus.
Across two episodes and two weeks of the series, Noah Copeland and Ryan Schneckloth interviewed five uniquely different developers at this year’s South by Southwest Gaming expo in Austin, Texas.
In the five videos for your viewing pleasure below, the duo speak to members behind 60 Parsecs, Pacer, Negative World, and the 8-bit game compiler NESmaker. For the first time, we’re also featuring a video that did not make either broadcast: Rybo’s interview with the team behind What the Golf, a more surreal take on the sport.
All featured were chosen to showcase at SXSW due to their innovative takes on some tried-and-true formulas in gaming, and many of the games cited have won awards and accolades for pushing the envelope.
