Oskar Eklund, CEO & Founding father of Howdy There Video games
I sat down with Oskar Eklund, CEO of Howdy There Video games, to speak about Kung Fury: Avenue Rage, the fifth anniversary replace, and the way the sport initially got here to be.
Eklund initially met Kung Fury author, director, and star David Sandberg whereas the 2 have been at Common Music. Eklund (a Taikwondo fighter himself) had simply led the studio in releasing Taekwondo, a touch-screen sport based mostly on the martial artwork, and was at Common to speak to AVICII, the late musician the dev workforce had labored with for each AVICII Gravity and AVICII Invector.
The Creation of Kung Fury: Avenue Rage
Eklund and Sandberg met in a convention room and hit it off about martial arts. Sandberg instructed Eklund about Kung Fury and stated he was thinking about a sport tie-in being made. After quarter-hour, Eklund was bought on the concept, and the workforce shared his pleasure as they moved into growth, sizzling on the heels of the Kung Fury quick movie’s Kickstarter success.
Kung Fury is not like most different martial arts movies, and Kung Fury: Avenue Rage would not play like different side-scrolling beat-em-ups, both. As a substitute of stage-based, “left-to-right” development with free-moving fight, Kung Fury: Avenue Rage opted as a substitute for no motion management, and solely proximity-based fight utilizing the Left and Proper buttons for assaults (a minimum of within the base sport). Eklund stated the selection was made because of the limitations of creating for cell, mixed with a really quick dev time, nevertheless it additionally helps it stand out from its competitors, having a extra rhythmic really feel than most brawlers.
Laser Unicorns (one of many manufacturing corporations behind the movie) and Sandberg labored immediately with Howdy There Video games to carry characters and enemies from the movie to the sport, 1-for-1, bringing the unique cell model to life in a scant 2.5 months. Fortunately, it discovered it is viewers, enabling the studio to work on story-based, expanded variations with voiceover offered by the movie’s actors, in addition to a lyric video of David Hasselhoff’s “True Survivor.”
The fifth Anniversary & Final Version
To have fun the fifth anniversary of Kung Fury: Avenue Rage, Laser Unicorns, David Sandberg, and Howdy There Video games determined to create an entire new sport; Kung Fury: Avenue Rage – Final Version. This new model bundles all beforehand launched content material collectively and provides extra worlds, boss fights, options, new gameplay modes with free motion, native multiplayer, and even David Hasselhoff as a playable character.

Eagle eyed gamers must also hold a lookout for Triceracop’s confession, the notorious ‘Bluescreen’ reference, in addition to references to Ninja Turtles within the most probably of locations…
When requested about any future plans associated to Kung Fury (or Kung Fury 2), Oskar merely winked and stated, “Perhaps?” We should wait and see what the longer term will maintain.
