Interview: Connor Kimbrough (Beef)

So, after taking a long "break" from the blog, I've decided to catch up with Connor Kimbrough on his whereabouts/games/other stuff.

Alright so, what have you been up to, since your collaboration with JW on Super Mind Dungeon?

Too many things. I co-founded an independent game company here in Oklahoma with Andy Wolff, called "Superghosts," and it's been quite a ride.

What made you decide to start a company?

Andy and I were interested in producing a "name" for our collaborations.

What can we expect from Superghosts?

We've been working with Paul Veer, Jukio Kallio, Sean Flannigan, Shane Heres, Alex Porter, Amon26, and Jonatan Söderström to create a myriad of titles. Most of them have been abandoned.

With Paul Veer/Jukio Kallio we started a flash game called "Fucking Blast Man" back in October of 2010. Gameplay-wise, it's undergone quite a few transformations. It's actually known as "Naked Blast Man" for now.

"Nuclear Cream" was a Windows game that had been in development with Alex Porter earlier this year. It was a lot of fun to work on but is, unfortunately, abandoned.

Recently, we're split between a flash remake/re-imagining of "Dire Haven" and "The Black Box," a project we're developing with Cactus for the Xbox 360.

"The Black Box" eh? Sounds mysterious... Can you give out some info about this one?

I can't really say too much about at this time. Maybe in August?

What about "Dire Haven"? can you divulge anything more about that?

It's a flash remake of a 2008 game by Radnom that I really loved. We're pretty much done with that one. It's fun, crass, and really ridiculous - I love it.

So what are a few of your favorite indie games?

Well, my favorite may be "Mighty Jill Off." I went to a small high school. There it was easy to get my whole class and some of the teachers into watching a group of us play "Mighty Jill Off," "N," and "Punishment 2." Those
experiences kind of endeared me to those games. I'm also a big fan of what Krimelo's doing.

We're almost running out of time here, but, do you have any more super sexy excusive screenshots you'd like to share with us?

Wow, I'll have to keep an eye on these guys. And My blog hiatus has been longer, I'm pretty sure. :P
