Upsilon Circuit remains one of the most mold breaking games I’ve ever heard of. In an era of Dark Souls and Dark Souls Clones, promising challenge through perma death, Robot Loves Kitty, the independent development company headed by Alix Stolzer and Calvin Goble, looked at these games, at each other, and then back out in to the world of indie games and said “You want Perma death? We’ll give you perma death.”
Or at least, that’s how I like to imagine the inception of Upsilon Circuit.
Upsilon Circuit is an intriguing hybrid between game show and video game that caught our attention from the first time we heard about, and we knew there was a story behind it. So, we reached out to the husband and wife team and were lucky enough to be able to ask them a few questions.
NOTE: We discuss the game’s IndieGoGo Campaign briefly. This is now outdated information. Upsilon Circuit has abandoned the IndieGoGo Campaign in favor of funding with Patreon. Here’s our take.
Our thanks to Alix and Calvin for taking the time to talk with us about their experience as indie developers and Upsilon Circuit.
