Altis blogger and video game fanatic Markus Schramm has a good idea of what you need to know about how to create a great video game.
“I want to do something like this a couple of years from now,” he told TechRadars.
“I don’t have any idea what it’s going to be, but I want to make it.
It’s an important thing for me to do.”
The best video games on the marketToday in video gamesMarkus Schrams passion for the medium was first instilled at a young age, but he was already a big gamer by the time he was in high school.
His brother was also into video games, and his dad, a former computer game programmer, played some too.
“When I was about 15 or 16, I used to do all kinds of crazy stuff,” Markus said.
“There was a game called Super Mario Bros 3 which was a really weird, weird game where you would jump around the world in a circle.
You would run in circles in a bunch of different directions, but the game was also quite fast and had some kind of boss battle system.”
Markus was a gamer, but not in the way you might think.
He was a big Star Wars fan.
“Star Wars was a huge thing for my brother at the time,” he said.
“We had a big collection of games.
We loved the movies, we loved all of them.
I remember my brother saying he had the only Star Wars game, and I think I had a copy of it too.”
As a teenager, Markus would spend hours playing video games all day, and then one day he had a friend play one of his favourite games.
“He said ‘you know, you don’t really need to play this, you can just have a couple more hours and watch the video games’,” Markus recalled.
“And I was like ‘I’m going to do that!'”
It was pretty much at that point that he made a game that was kind of a sequel to the classic Star Wars games.
Markus and his brother decided to make the game in order to make a career.
Markuses passion for video games came to a head in 2011, when he decided to start his own game studio.
“So I went in and made Super Mario Brothers, which was very much based on the same universe,” Markus explained.
“The characters, the graphics, everything was inspired by the movies.”
“I started thinking about what was possible with video games.
I wanted to make games that were just like Star Wars, that were made from the same world and it’s so similar to the movies,” he added.
“So I was kind, I was happy to make these games.
But then I was thinking, well, I want more.”
The studio was formed and it was a real success.
Markuss continued to work on his own games, but in 2012 he was able to start creating his own series, Super Mario 3D World, which would eventually become a game in itself.
“It’s very similar to Super Mario and it has a lot of the same elements that we have,” Markus continued.
“It’s kind of like Super Mario, but it’s also a game about a group of kids that decide to go on an adventure and it takes place in an environment that’s very different to the ones that you play in Super Mario.”
The world is different, there’s so many different worlds to explore, there are so many things to collect and so much to do.
I was really happy with how it turned out.
“Super Mario 3DFW was released in 2012, and it wasn’t long before Markus became a video game critic.”
And I was already into games before I was into video.””
There were a lot more games being released.
And I was already into games before I was into video.”
Markuses favourite game was Super Mario Kart, and he decided it was time to start writing for the video game blog.
“Super Mario Kart was my favourite game of all time,” Markus told TechRisk.
“Even though it was released way back in the day, it still makes me happy to play.”
The next big step in Markus Schramms video game writing career was to work with Nintendo.
“My first Nintendo game was Donkey Kong,” Markus recounted.
“That was the first game that I wrote for Nintendo.
That was the only game that made me happy.”
Nintendo was one of the first companies that Nintendo got on the back of, and they made a video of the original Donkey Kong in the game store and I remember the game’s name was ‘Diddy Kong’.
“I remember that I was sitting there thinking that’s such a beautiful game that Nintendo is getting to do so well and I’m the first person to get a game of Donkey Kong on Nintendo.”
Nintendo got back to work and the team at Nintendo Entertainment America
