Interview: Andrew Linde of Juncture Media

Interview: Andrew Linde of Juncture Media


We’ve talked quite a bit about AVARIAvs lately, the competitive JRPG being created by Juncture Media, currently on Kickstarter. It’s a fascinating take on the conventions of both the JRPG and Competitive Fighting genres, blending and molding each into a unique vision that’s really caught our eye.

Luckily, we had the opportunity to talk with Andrew Linde, the lead developer of AVARIAvs. In this interview, we discuss the game’s unique competitive JRPG Combat, how it’s evolved during development, and the inspirations for this strange science fiction world. There’s even a cameo from Odin!


Our thanks to Andrew for taking the time to talk with us and share the story of AVARIAvs.

You can find out more about AVARIAvs in our Kickstarter Watch, or on the game’s Kickstarter Crowdfunding page.

  1. This game has a such an awesome team behind it, from design to audio to programming. Can’t wait to play it! It was also great to see the other indie games in NYC get a shout out.
