We are Veteran Video Game Developers at Hyperkinetic Studios - Ask Us Anything!
Edit: Thank you so much to everyone who participated in this! We had a blast answering your questions, and we learned a lot from all of you. We'll be checking back here periodically, so please feel free to leave questions. We all worked on Spider-Man 2 and individuals on the team worked on games like Medal of Honor 2010, if you have any questions about those projects, as well. We love sharing our knowledge, and meeting new people.
Hi, we are Dave Padilla, Tomo Moriwaki, and Rich Bisso, the co-founders of Hyperkinetic Studios, an indie game development studio based in Culver City, CA. We all worked together about 12 years ago at Treyarch, and our paths eventually brought us to where we are currently at. We have spent the last few years working on projects for clients, but finally made the plunge to start working on our game late last year. We would love to share any insight that we have on starting up a studio, making games that you love, and everything in between.
The Kickstarter for our first original game, Epic Tavern, is also active in case anyone would like to check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/291092632/epic-tavern-rule-the-land-from-your-tavern?ref=user_menu
