Shanghai Six sits down with Klei Entertainment’s master ninja and creative director for Mark of the Ninja, Nels Anderson to discuss how his silly little 2d stealth action game is destroying Xbox Live records, throwing around things like “Highest average reviewed game on Xbox Live” and the like (yes, it IS that damn good). Shanghai asks Nels what its like having one of the most critically acclaimed games on Xbox Live, why he’s not driving around in a Ferrari made of gold, and how a grand slam like this for a studio will affect the future planning for a sequel…and the fact that Playboy’s Miss October 2012, Pamela Horton from last week’s interview specifically mentioned that she loved the game (before she knew I was interviewing Nels!)
Oh, and listen up, non-XBLA listeners: Mark of the Ninja is coming out on Steam next week, so get your charge cards and Paypal accounts ready to buy as many copies of Mark of the Ninja as possible. Let’s get Nels that Ferrari!
