Jankenteam On Reviving Alex Kidd For A Whole New Generation Of Players
Interview with Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX's Developer




Quote
Ramon Nafria (Producer): "As a Sega fan, I always wanted to play new games with classic characters like Alex Kidd, Opa Opa, Joe Musashi, and so on.
After I had spent some time in the video game industry I wanted to realize my dream of making new games with these characters. When I saw Jose and Hector’s project, I thought it was the perfect moment to make this dream true!

My first Alex Kidd game is Mega Drive version which was not very good, so first memory of him was that he wasn't appealing.
Sonic on the other hand ....

I mean Alex Kidd was the first game I have ever played!

At the time our family wasn't that well off, but our mother got us a Master System II, we never had such luxurious technology before. And this was back in... oooh I dunno, 1991? I can't remember how old I was, I just remember being very young. Maybe 3 years old. And this was before internet became a common thing let alone home computers.

We didn't have many games for it... honestly I can't remember what games we had for it given we we're poor, but the Master System II had a game built into it and thus that Alex Kidd was my very first ever video game I have ever played.

Given this was before save files, back then playing a Master System (and Mega Drive) game was like a gauntlet. If you wanted to play through the game until the end, you had to do so in one sitting. Have the attention span of a three year old? Too bad. Had a bed time of nine o'clock? Too bad. Game Over? Too bad, back to the start!

I remember the level, or to be more precise the "Scene" where Alex reaches the king just to get exposition, no stage, enemies or challenge, just a text box. And that while I know the game had a story I was following it made my 3 year old min wonder if video games could be used to tell stories?

I'm kinda sad with myself that I'm 33 now and I'm still not the video game developer that 3 year old me wished to be.

I see. My first game that I played is Game & Watch: Chef ,
and even that handheld was belong to my cousin.
I was simply borrowing it.
Watched many games on arcade but never try them until later when I was old enough to study at school.



Console games were still also considered a luxury when I was a kid.
My first gaming system was IBM PC XT.
My dad bought it so I could learn Wordstar, Lotus, and Basic early,
but of course I used it mostly for playing DOS games.

The 90s was an interesting time for gaming. Sort of like a pioneer. Glad I grew up around then. I remember as a child with graph paper, filling out the squares and dreaming of making my own 8-bit games at the time.

I loved making comic when I was a kid.
I was not good at drawing, but loved making plot of story in comic style.
That was in elementary, after in high school I stopped making them.
Can't remember why I stopped. May be something else interest me more.
