Working With a Legend - The Story of Nex Machina
Gaming legend Eugene Jarvis, Housemarque CEO Ilari Kuittinen and Nex Machina game director, Harry Krueger, discuss how the collaboration between an arcade game pioneer and the Housemarque team led to critical success. This discussion explores how a few drinks (perhaps, many) between Eugene and the Housemarque co-founders and chairman after the 2014 D.I.C.E. Awards began a fruitful partnership. The end result was Housemarque's most critically acclaimed title to date, which some have called the "best twin-stick shooter of all time".
Harry Krueger is the Game Director of Nex Machina and a fan of all things arcade. He started his career working alongside Dylan Cuthbert at Q-Games in Japan and then later made his way to Finland to join the team at Housemarque. He´s been with Housemarque since 2009 and had worked on award winning games Outland and a PlayStation4 launch title Resogun.
