Not too long ago, we got news about a new twin-stick shooter that would be joining the cooperative ranks called Waves: Arena Tactics. The idea of a shooter with rogue-like elements intrigued us so we recently chatted with the developer, Squid in a Box, to hear more about this "Dive" mode, how the game came about, and what life event inspired him to move in a cooperative direction.
One quick word about the video. There were a couple Internet issues while Rob Hale, the one-man team behind Squid in a Box, and I were talking so you may notice a couple points where the conversation seems to jump suddenly.
Many thanks to Rob for taking the time to speak with us. Thanks, as well, to our always excellent video editor Locke Vincent for piecing all of that together.
Rob's first game, Waves, is currently available on Steam and, until March 25, on sale for 75% off!
