On the eve of the release of the final Twisted Metal game on PlayStation 2, GameTap spoke with creator David Jaffe. His new company, Eat Sleep Play, includes many of his long-time associates who helped cocreate games such as Twisted Metal 1 and 2, Twisted Metal: Black, War of the Monsters, Downhill Domination, and God of War. The independent developer's first title is the PS2 port of the PSP game, Twisted Metal Head On, which is packed with four "Lost" levels from the unreleased game Twisted Metal: Black 2, never-before-seen FMV videos from TM1, a documentary, and downloadable songs, to name a few.
What makes this game worth buying if you already own the PSP game? What are Jaffe's favorite games of 2007? How does he like independent development? Will he work on God of War 3? Has Microsoft courted him to make Xbox 360 games?
