is a very special episode of The Sausage Factory in which we have a returning
developer in the form of Roll7. They first appeared in Episode 9 when they had
just released OlliOlli and we have them on again to talk about Not a Hero, a
game show host Chris ORegan has been following since he first encountered it at
Rezzed 2014. Fast forward a year and Not a Hero is on the brink of
release, with its arrival set for 7th May 2015 on Windows PC via Steam. Not only that, but the team has just been nominated for a Develop award in the Micro Studio category!
Chris chats to Jake Hollands of Roll7 about his role in making Not a Hero and
how he managed to pass his graphic design degree despite ignoring the official
syllabus by focusing solely on video games. Other topics discussed includes
how Hotline Miami was made using Gamemaker and how the
2.5D graphical style that Not a Hero has came into being.
