This week, we sit down with gaming developer legend, American McGee (yes, that is his real name) to discuss his latest project from his Shanghai-based development house, Spicy Horse. The most recent game he’s working on, Ozombie, is in trouble over on Kickstarter and needs your help to get off the ground. After a hopeful start, Ozombie has less than four weeks left and is only at $130,000 of the $950,000 its asking for, so we discuss Ozombie and what they’re going for with steampunk Dorothy and a tyrannical Scarecrow, some of the goals and challenges of getting funded via Kickstarter, and the big issue: confusion about the title of the game Ozombie having the word “Zombie” in the title only referring to a mob mentality of a population and not a flesh-eating pack of corpses (pending name change)!
