Some great games there in production and truly appreciate the time, effort and skill to producing games for these classic consoles

Q: What drew you to want to design and create a game on the Sega Megadrive?

Q: What is involved in producing games on old consoles these days?

Q: What kindled your interest to take up programming Console games? As I assume that this has a big learning curve?

Q: Who do you admire in the Homebrew scene you'd very much like to work with?

Q: With the Snes been my personal favourite 16bit console, any RVG exclusive reveals you might be working on you'd care to mention on that system?

Q: Any plans to do any form of Action platformers like Rolling Thunder, Shinobi or Ninja Warriors style games? there is not enough of those, but those type of games can be adventurous to achieve but would be great.

Q:  What do you think of the Homebrew community as a whole?

Are there any retro systems that you haven't worked on but would like to someday?

Where did you learn how to make video games, and how long have you been doing it?

When you're not making games, which ones do you like to play?

Here are some questions:
1.  What motivated you to make a real version of Fix It Felix Jr for the Genesis?  How long did the game take to make?  What were the challenges you faced when making the game?
2.  You made games of different types for the Genesis, NES and SNES.  Is there a favorite type of game you prefer to develop?  Is there a favorite console you like to develop for? 
3.  Would you ever consider porting any of your games to a console like the Atari Jaguar?  How about making a new game for that console?
4.  What is your favorite retro console to play?
Going to the final frontier, gaming...
