We are the guys that made/published Magicka - Now we've made another PC/Mac indie game called The showdown Effect where you can block bullets with katanas. AMA!
We - Johan Pilestedt (game designer from Arrowhead Game Studios) and Shams Jorjani (producer at Paradox Interactive) - just released our new game The Showdown Effect. Almost a year ago we did a really fun AMA and got a ton of fun questions from you about gaming, game development, bananas and vampires. We had so much fun we're doing with you so we said fuck it - let's do another.
The Showdown Effect is a 2.5D multiplayer action game inspired by 80’s and 90’s action movies. Movie heroes/stereotypes fight to the death for fun, for glory and for awesome - or die trying. The game is our love declaration to games, movies and TV-shows of yore - and by yore we mean the 80's and 90's.
So ask us anything about the gaming industry, game development, the game or anything else except that dream about your sister, in the rain, at the bus stop. We don't talk about that.
We will be live steaming the entire AMA! - www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive and will keep at it for at least 4 hours - we hate short AMA's where OP only replies to like 3 questions - THROUGH A PROXY - we're looking at you OBAMA.
