[PS4Blog.net Interview] Rimlight Studios On Zheros
We recently reviewed Zheros on PS4 so we got in touch with Managing Director Simone Massar at Rimlight Studios to talk about the game’s development.
PS4Blog: Morning! Thank you for taking the time to join us at PS4blog.net. Would you mind helping us get this going by introducing yourself to our readers?
We are a team of industry experts and passionate gamers which have decided to join force, technical and creative capabilities to create engaging games that appeal to the whole family. We have decided to open our studio in Catania (Sicily) on the base of the Etna volcano, which has provided the team with a creative spot that is certainly unique in the world.
PS4B: ZHEROS is now available on PlayStation 4. What can you tell us about this release?
ZHEROS is the first video game produced by our team and is the first of two episodes. ZHEROS is a 3D Beat’em up with a sci-fi atmosphere and a bright look that appeals to the whole family. The game has been launched on PS4 with various improvements regarding performance and look.
PS4B: Considering that the game already has one set of DLC available (The Forgotten Land), is the studio considering release additional DLC packs for ZHEROS?
We are currently not planning any other DLC for 2017, but it is our vision to create a unique universe where we can place all the characters of our games, and you might definitely see Mike appear in other titles in the future.
PS4B: Now that the game has been completed, what is the team working on for their next project?
We have purchased the rights to a well-known IP, and we are currently working on the pre-production phase of a new game based on it. This is a much bigger project, so we are planning to join forces with other studios to realize it, so stay tuned to hear more about us.
PS4B: Once again, thank you for taking the time to do this interview. Would you like to add anything else?
Yes, we want to thank the nearly 2 million users that have played our game. When we started this voyage, we didn’t know if we’d be able to reach so many users and we are honored to have been selected by so many of you, and hope to deliver more titles in the future fun to play for the entire family!
