Back BATALYX? TO
Jeff minter is unique in the field of videogames. Like a psychedelic unicorn, he’s an enigma, and he’s been producing distinctive titles for over 35 years, blending familiar motifs and mechanics with new tech and innovations, often revisiting old ideas on different platforms. Has he even considered returning to Batalyx, revamping the concept for modern consoles or even VR? “I’m not sure in this form”, he muses, “but maybe taking one or two of the bits and turning them into bigger things. All of the games could be taken as sketches for bigger games. We’ll see. I definitely don’t look back and think, ‘That’s a bit shit!’ I still enjoy playing it. It was me being experimental, hence Mama Llama coming after it, which some might say was too experimental!” That’s a story for another day, perhaps.
