Superhot with a Stuntwoman: Interview with Dejobaan on Tick Tock Bang Bang
You may have heard of Dejobaan- the Boston based developer is responsible for some rather unusual games, such as Monster Loves You, a game in which you play as an orphaned monster who wears his parents as pelts and goes around eating children- or rescuing them, depending on the choices you make, Drop That Beat Like an Ugly Baby, a self-explanatory rhythm game, Drunken Robot Pornography, which is actually their most normal game in spite of its title, and more- their next game, Tick Tock Bang Bang, which comes out in a week, is an FPS that draws inspiration from SUPERHOT and Hollywood.
During PAX East this year, I got to chat with Ichiro Lambe, one of the developers at Dejobaan, who told me a bit about how he came to making Tick Tock Bang Bang. “I spent nine months working on Singularity Starship and I said ‘man I need a break’- so I took our earlier title, Drunken Robot Pornography, a bullet-hell first-person shooter, and I just played SUPERHOT, so I just said wow! Let’s play around with some time mechanics. So I figured that interesting mechanic of stopping time, we could expand on that and do some really interesting stuff there.”
Personally, I have to say that I’m looking forward to this game; in a lot of ways, it reminds me of Clustertruck as much as it does SUPERHOT. I’ve not yet gone hands-on with Tick Tock Bang Bang, though I am looking forward to trying it out- meanwhile, there are some neat screenshots embedded below for your viewing pleasure, check them out.
Tick Tock Bang Bang is set to be released on Steam on June 9, 2016. What do you think? Is this a cool concept for a game, and are you looking forward to playing it?
