Danilo Dias, a software developer, has been working on a project that he called "the shambles."
Danilo Dias and Thais Weiller from Curitiba, Brazil, created the action platformer "Vengeful Guardian: Moonrider" in January 2023, which received rave reviews. The company's three titles include "Oniken", "Odallus: The Dark Call," and "Blazing Chrome," which was already well-known among retro gamers.
Danilo, how did you become a game designer for neo-retro games?
Danilo Dias: That was around 2006. A lot of retro games in the old NES style were released at the time. I was a big NES fan, bought a lot of cartridges, which were cheaper back then.
