With the release of their game coming up, we had a nice long chat with Kahlil Abdullah, co-founder of Decoy Games about all things Swimsanity, helping other marginalized game developers, and what’s next. Visit Black Nerd Problems website or click the link below to read the full interview!
BNP: So, for all the folks that don’t know about Swimsanity, tell us what the game is all about.
Khalil: Swimsanity is a 4-player, underwater shooter with competitive and cooperative game modes where you can play with or against your friends. Basically, you control this underwater, aquatic hero called a Mooba. And he’s equipped with all these special power moves called ‘Unleashes.’ You can become a humongous shark, you can heal your teammates, you can deploy an underwater, what we call, an aqua tank. There are 13 of these, across 8 different game modes.
So, if you’re kind of a competitive guy, you can play against your friends in a typical deathmatch or elimination mode. We also flip the game on itself and let people play all on the same team with cooperative modes where you can do big boss battles or survival. There’s really something for everyone. The game is gonna have local and online play, and we just announced last month that it’s gonna have cross-play across all consoles and PC.
