Jake Kazdal did not go to work on Thursday expecting a water main to break over his head—or whatever it was that sent water cascading into his offices while his team was working on their video game.
Some people have called Skulls of the Shogun the best strategy game of E3. I've called it a "Wu-Tang Advance Wars." Let's here how the game's lead creator, Jake Kazdal, describes the game in this exclusive developer documentary provided to Kotaku by Kazdal and his crew.
It helps if you can hear the soundtrack. It helps if you loved Advance Wars. It might even help if you liked listening to the Wu-Tang Clan or watched Kill Bill a decade ago and developed a love for an old martial arts movie like Shogun Assassin.
When indie developer Jake Kazdal told me his studio's game, the still in development Skulls of the Shogun, was heavily inspired by his love of Nintendo's Advance Wars series, I was already on the hook.
