GamesCast 015 – Interview with Torchbearer about porting Flux8 to the Nintendo Switch

So this Friday 29th May sees the Nintendo Switch release of Flux8, although if you can’t wait you can preorder now at https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-Switch-download-software/Flux8-1771534.html

We were very lucky to have some of the team from Torchbearer join us this week to talk a little about the challenges of porting the PC version (still available on Steam https://store.steampowered.com/app/658810/Flux8/) to Nintendo Switch. We were joined by founder Pete and Jon and programmer Matt who worked in Canalside Studios on the original PC version.

Jon and Pete are graduates of our Computer Games Programming route and founded Torchbearer during their placement year on the Enterprise Placement Year. Matt is also a graduate of the Computer Games Programming course.

Join Matt and I discussing Flux8 and comparing the differences between the PC and Switch versions.
