THE FEST AND THE FURY
Japanese Breakfast’s live performance of Glider at Summer Game Fest put
Sable on a lot of people’s radars, no doubt contributing to the success of the demo – which was being put together as arrangements for the performance were being made. Kythreotis says Shedworks “can’t claim too much credit” for it, insisting it was all down to Raw Fury (which handled the editing of the footage he and Fineberg had supplied for the event), Game Fest linchpin Geoff Keighley, and, especially, Zauner.
“We gave input and tried to provide guidance for the visuals and the atmosphere. But again, that’s another thing that Michelle just has so much experience in that we could defer a lot to her. And, yeah, the performance was just magical. You know, it’s all her. And the backing screens they had at Summer Game Fest were also really cool: that three-screen [setup] worked really well, because you get these such broad vistas.” Kythreotis notes that he’s since seen a number of people play the demo in a 21:9 aspect ratio; at this rate, Sable could well be responsible for a rise in the sales of ultrawide monitors.
