For those long-term readers of AIR Entertainment posts, you will remember that we did an interview a while back with Japes from Pea Head Games. Almost a year has passed since then and there has been some changes with regards to Neon Sword. Time to find out more..
Welcome back to AIR Entertainment JP. For those readers who aren’t sure of who you are, please introduce yourself and Pea Head Games
Well I’m Japes. I’m 31 years young, father and husband now (still sounds strange), I started Pea Head Games a couple of years ago to focus on creating and releasing Neon Sword.
So you started Pea Head Games a couple of years ago? Is it just you on board or do you have a team behind you?
Well, when I started it was just me working alone with no input from anyone. After a while I started a social media page which gained a small following and led me to meeting the people who are now a big part of Neon Sword.
Want to drop any names of who are part of the creative team?
Well we have a lot of people behind the scenes now but the main people are yourself obviously, helping with voice acting and story writing. Joey is doing our sound and I can’t praise him enough. No matter what I demand of him he comes back with pure art and often better than I ever envisaged. Shaun Jooste, who is working on something big for Neon Sword, but that is to be revealed at a slightly later date and I will release the news via AIR. There’s so many other names, but I’ll just throw a few names here of people who have helped along the way.. Paul and Julie Timlin, Luke and of course my wife Sabina who is my biggest critic lol.
So, Neon Sword. I have heard that you are no longer with the publishing team that you started out with. I wont go into any details of that, but where are you now as far as the development is concerned. Is there a possible release date in sight?
Thanks to Japes for giving up some time in his busy schedule to answer a few questions for us, I know personally how much effort is going in to building this game as I’m working on parts of it myself, not to mention myself and Shaun will be adding our voices to the finished game.
Hopefully we will see a full release of Neon Sword this year for Steam, and followed closely by its release on PS4 and Xbox which is the plan.
