HIGH The first thirty seconds of flight.

LOW The massive gulf between production value and actual quality gaming.

WTF  The aliens are robots and slugs and shape-shifting human-creators?

Interview with Jim Deal of Airtight Games on… Dark Void

Interview with Jim Deal of Airtight Games

At the most recent PAX show, I was fortunate enough to spend a bit of time with a game I had been greatly anticipating: Dark Void from Washington's own Airtight Games.

Produced in conjunction with Capcom, Dark Void is an adventure game featuring aliens and jetpacks inside the Bermuda triangle. With tight transitions between air and land on top of clever vertical combat, this title is definitely one to watch—it also doesn't hurt that the people behind it are some of the same folks who worked on one of my favorite Xbox titles, Crimson Skies.

Airtight Games' president and creative director Jim Deal was kind enough to spend a few moments talking with me about this upcoming title and I'm quite glad to share what he had to say.
