8 Bit Adventure Anthology Vol. 1
8 Bit Adventure Anthology Vol. 1 is releasing next week for PlayStation 4, so we got in touch with Dave Marsh at Zojoi and Farah Nasri at Abstraction Games to talk about it.
PS4Blog: Welcome to PS4Blog.net! Thank you for taking the time to join us today. Could you please get us started by introducing yourself to our readers and telling them a bit about your work?
Dave Marsh: Sure. My name is Dave Marsh, and I’m the founder of a small indie game company called Zojoi. I started in the game industry in 1985 doing some art on the adventure title The Uninvited before developing Shadowgate for the mac. Along with my friend Karl Roelofs, we went on to port those games (as well as Déjà vu and Déjà vu II) to over ten different platforms before moving on to create titles for the SNES, TurboGrafx-16, and other consoles and platforms.
Farah Nasri: And my name is Farah Nasri! Early this year I started as a Junior Producer at Abstraction Games with a specialization in the Japanese language and culture. I had a leading role during this project and was overseeing the development to make sure we got top quality games that meet our standards. Until February this year, I was also a board member of a nonprofit organization called ‘Rangemu’ that aims to improve the connection between the Dutch and Japanese video game industries. Even though I’m only 26 years old and fairly new to the games industry, I’m definitely not unfamiliar with the classics before my time!
