Wireframe — Issue 8

Meowza Games talks to us about Mineko’s Night Market, an indescribably cute adventure inspired by the likes of Animal Crossing and Studio Ghibli’s My Neighbour Totoro. We meet some of the people behind Sumo Digital, purveyors of such games as OutRun 2 and Snake Pass, to find out how they’ve become one of the UK’s biggest independent studios. And we check out Tales of the Neon Sea, an atmospheric cyberpunk adventure from Chinese developer Zodiac Interactive.
