Two years after its release, Harry Krueger reflects on the unique development of Nex Machina: how the project started as a love letter to the arcade, and what challenges and lessons the team faced as they set out to create a modern arcade classic. The presentation will explore the creative philosophy behind Housemarque’s unique brand of arcade-inspired games, and dive into some of the key design decisions that made Nex Machina its most critically acclaimed title to date. The talk will also reflect on how Nex Machina marked the bittersweet end of an era for Housemarque, and how they plan to keep this spirit alive as they venture towards new challenges with their new AAA direction.
