Faran Thomason the Ex-Atari and Nintendo supremo sits down with Arcade Attack for a top interview.

 

He has worked on Jag classics such as Cybermorph, Bubsy, Supercross 3D and Baldies.

Not quite a top interview. You never brought up MK3 on the Jag.

Hmm - didn't exist on the Jag, didn't exist in the interview.  Sounds about right.

Hmm. Was in development on the Jag. Farran was producer.

Now go bug people for their source codes

More interviews of the producer of Bubsy Fractured Furry Tales.  Nice!

 

And if you want more Faran there is this interview too...

Sometimes when I read posts on here I feel like someone who is reading The Onion for the first time and thinks it is serious. Jaguar "classics" like Bubsy and Supercross 3D?

They're "classics" the same way well-known bad movies are "classics".

Heh so true. My eyes just about rolled away when he referred to the Odyssey and Colecovision systems as also-rans, before launching into stories about working on the Atari Jaguar.

I'll say something I never thought I would hear myself say.  When I was watching this video lately...

 

 

This player said that he tried quite a few games, wasn't too impressed with Tempest 2000, but thought Bubsy was the best game he played on the Jaguar.  :o  

 

Ok, even I wouldn't say that.  :P

It's a frustrating game from an average franchise(3d doesn't exist) but it's a classic in the sense that it's well known and tried by many who try this platform since it's an exclusive. I have this love/Hate relationship with it. It's too hard but the music and graphics get me everytime and Bubsy is a cool character. I have to play the others on Snes.
