I'll throw a couple questions out to get things started.

Your Kickstarter for Xeno Crisis was a huge success. Did you have any idea it would be so popular?

Do you have a date in mind for when you would like to have the game finished?

Thanks for agreeing to the interview guys, could you take a momnet to tell us about each member of the team and how you got to this point in making your megadrive games?

What made you guys enter the 2016 GGJ?

Is Bitmap Bureau in any way a homage to Bitmap Brothers?

Whats next for you guys, any sneak peaks?

What are the real draw backs to creating games for the Megadrive that you have found so far?

Have you created any special tools to help you create your games?

Is there any discussions on bringing some of your work or new work to other systems? (SNES or Amiga)

Are you guys shocked at the current resurgence in retro related gaming?

1.  You Kickstarer was originally for XenoCrisis for the Genesis/MD but you got funding to support the Dreamcast and other systems.  How difficult is it to port the game to these other systems?  Will the game have added features for the more advanced systems? 


Going to the final frontier, gaming...
