Cogswell College alumus, Sean Velasco stopped by the IGN studio for an interview prior to the E3Expo. Sean currently works for WayForward Technologies in Los Angeles along with fellow alumni Steven Foote and Austin Ivansmith.
In the interview Sean says, “I was playing A Boy and His Blob one day and thought, man, this is such a great premise and we could execute so excellently on it with all of WayForward’s proprietary animation, with all of our awesome 2D platformer experience.”
Since the company already had a good relationship with Majesco who owned the rights to the game, the team threw together a pitch about their concept for A Boy and His Blob. Sean also discussed the game design decisions, including the use of 2D rather than 3D art.
