I would love to bye it! Did you say DS (Nintendo DS?)…. well that would be just perfect!
Keep up the great work,

By: Petri Purho Sun, 16 Mar 2008 21:21:43 +0000 @jenn: I miss you guys too! The 1UP gang did such an great job with the indie interviews; That’s the only reason why I managed to give a decent interview.

By: Oliver Snyders Sun, 16 Mar 2008 11:12:43 +0000 That 1Up Gamevideos player… I hate it! They usually have some interesting stuff on there (interviews with game industry people etc.) but the player itself just seems so buggy compared to something like the YouTube player, or even the GameTrailers player.

Oh yeah, a DS version of Crayon Physic Deluxe would probably be the definitive version, if done right. Petri probably already knows this, but you need to tailor fit the game to the platform and not try to fit the platform to the game. A small amount of ‘reinvention’ would be necessary for Crayon Physics Deluxe in order for it to be a good game on DS, but it would end up great.

The thing is, Crayon Physics is a real ‘toy’ kind of game and putting it on a handheld platform would take advantage of that dynamic – carrying a toy around with you. I wouldn’t necessarily spend a significant amount of time playing Crayon Physics on my PC, but on a handheld, I definitely would. I could play it at any time and for any amount of time (insert ‘the good things about handhelds’ here).

Keeping the key aspects of the game (physics, drawing and puzzles) but taking advantage of the dual screens (mapping buttons to accessible actions/items/elements on the top screen – always visible) and *tons* of levels with a good feeling of progression would be great and make a DS version different enough to make people want a PC version *and* the DS version.

Rant over.

Oh, sorry, rant not over. Another begins:

You’re doing Petri (and Crayon Physics Deluxe) a disservice whenever you abbreviate Crayon Physics/Crayon Physics Deluxe to CP or CPD. I’m speaking my own mind here and this has nothing to do with what Petri thinks, but my thoughts are that you should always say the full name so that people reading this forum will realise what you’re talking about and that person will invest some mindshare in Crayon Physics. CP and CPD are meaningless. You, yourself, will also invest that self-same mindshare and begin to think about it differently and, when speaking to other people, refer to it as the full name. These people then invest in the name and so on. It’s the same with all names. It may be tough to type the whole thing out every time, but I think it’s valuable.

Again, my thoughts bare no reflection on those of Mr. Purho’s. It’s quite possible I’m a jerk. I have toothpaste in my ear and pasta in my nostrils. I am a T-Shirt.

You really do give a good interview, sir.
