PlayStation LifeStyle: Interview with doublesix games

PlayStation LifeStyle recently had a chance to speak with Jim Mummery, creative director of doublesix games.

doublesix recently won the prestigious "Best New UK/European Studio" award at the Develop Industry Excellence Awards. So I am sure you all can see why we are so excited to present our readers with this interview.

First off I would like to thank you on behalf of the staff and readers of PlayStation LifeStyle for taking the time to answer our questions.

d6: It's our pleasure. We're a new studio and we appreciate the chance to talk about what we do. So, thank you.

Why doublesix games? Is there a meaning behind the name or does it just sound cool (sounds pretty catchy to us)?

d6: The easiest way to explain it is to use that old board game staple: when you throw a double six you're allowed to have another go. We want to make games that are quick to pick up and hard to put down – games that inspire that 'just one more go' mentality where playing again is its own reward – that's kind of the studio philosophy – hence the name.

Hey Sev I just wanted to say great interview and I hope to see many more like this one.

@ Sev

Stop. Just stop. Stop fishing for hits, there's few people STUPID enough to give you and your site the time of day because all we can expect from you is for you to sh!+ on people as many times as we let you. You know the saying, 'fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me'? What you're doing here is asking people to line up to get fooled twice and it's just not going to happen.

Seriously do you have a compulsive need for approval or something? Cos if you did, just remember that you haven't lived down your recent disgraceful behaviour, in fact, you won't EVER.

You're a c***roach, if you don't like being stepped on, GTFO

When Are The Hardware 2 screens Being released ?

Dunno If I should get hyped for it

Panipal20053602d ago

@ Ice2ms

You expect Sev to show those Hardware 2 pics? He DOESN'T HAVE ANY HARDWARE PICS. He was LYING. THROUGH HIS TEETH.

Sorry to say, you kinda proved my point about people getting taken in by Sev the con artist.

I wonder who the little a-hole who clicked on the 'disagree' link was (maybe Sev sleazeball himself)...clever you, doing that instead of having something to say.

Panipal20053601d ago (Edited 3601d ago )

He prefers keeping his dirty laundry 'hidden' which is why he sent me the following PM, in which he didn't say anything he couldn't have said in public - if he had any guts that is.

Who do you think you are?

About the Hardware 2 screens... Incognito asked us NOT to release the screen. We respected their wishes.

Whats more important, future relationships with developers? Or sniveling toads such as yourself.

[And there you go. Now you know exactly what Sev suck-up thinks of us. If we're not 'developers' or other 'important' people, we're not fit to be treated with any respect and it's a-ok to sh!+ on us if Sev sees fit. For example, teasing us with screens he has no intention of showing.]

You are the sleaze. Don't come to the site.

Fishing for hits? I don't care about hits, I don't make a dime off my site. There are no ads, no donations, NOTHING.

[So why come here plugging your site?]

Hate the site, fine. [I don't] Hate me, fine. [I don't] But there is no need to trash me on N4G submissions.

[Sev likes to use the word 'hate' to refer to his detractors, probably due to this inferiority complex he's got, he thinks he can overcome it by calling other people 'haters']

Grow up and realize there are more to life then a couple screenshots to a game that most people didnt even seem interested in.

[No? Remember that poll you started where you got 100+ agree votes? That's like 100 people (at least) you [email protected]+ on in one go. Excellent job Sev! But it's OK for you because they're not important. Remember that everytime you see a plug for PS Liestyle, people - to Sev the readership of his site (that means YOU) is NOT important.]

I am glad you dont visit the site, and I dont ever want you to. How is that fishing for hits?"

Sev you are just going to have to respond in public, if you send me any more PMs they end up on the site so everyone else can read them.

Oh and, you can't try to do your business behind closed doors by sending PMs and then turn round and refer to ME as the snivelling toad. Snivelling toads want to keep their real character hidden. Like you.

You're a c***roach, if you don't like being stepped on, GTFO

Panipal20053601d ago (Edited 3601d ago )

"Re: Hi
Go ahead and share it. That will show what type of character you have. PM stands for private message, not public message, hence me sending it to you personally.

[That character being someone who doesn't appreciate being expected to collude with someone who doesn't want to do things in an honourable and open fashion]

I am a c***roach?

What have I ever done wrong to deserve comments like that?

[Several things, all of which have been commented on over and over again. Of course, you wouldn't know this, because you ignore any and all criticism, being extremely arrogant]

I am a coward? I have addressed every situation that has arisen, and I do it in a respectful manner.

[Respectful like, banning people and deleting comments you don't like. Yeah, very 'respectful'.]

Maybe that is something you learn yourself. Respect."

[Respect means not referring to people who aren't game developers as 'snivelling worms', and it doesn't mean telling them that they're less of a priority to you than currying favour from the big boys, which isn't a smart thing to say when you're trying to pimp your site either.]

I seen that you posted the PM on the comments section of the doublesix interview.

[Yes, just as I said I would. I seem to remember telling you to deal with me in public, which you ignored, and NOT to send me any more PMs, which you ignored, and you accuse me of being disrespectful?]

You have no respect for the hard work we put into the site, and you have nor respect for the hard work developers put into their games.

[Yes that's right, is it starting to get through your thick skull how damaged your reputation is after the stunt you pulled recently? The hard work YOU put into the site? What, did you plan out the tease and the 'ha ha no pics 4 you, punked!' bit in great detail, did you?]

[Oh and, any respect I have for game developers is a separate matter from any LACK of respect I have for douchebags who sh!+ on their loyal readers, genius.]

doublesix is a new developer trying to get their feet off the ground, and I was trying to help them get some attention.

[Methinks new developers would be better off with REPUTABLE exposure, such as you are UNABLE to provide.]

Thats why it was posted on N4G, not to "fish" for hits as you like to accuse.

[Of course not, that's why you didn't go like 'hey come to PS Liestyle, come people come!' Which you do EVERY time you post here.]

Besides, you are not a moderator here at N4G, you have no right to tell me or anyone else what they can or cannot submit to the site, that is what the site is for, submitting stories from around the web.

[I've got every right to voice my disdain for douchebags like you as strongly as I wish. I just think your need for attention and hits for your site is as repellent as your attitude towards ordinary gamers, who are less important to you than 'relationships with devs' as you've repeatedly stated.]

You dont like it "GTFO"

How old are you 11 years old?


[It's obvious why you'd prefer to talk via PMs is because you DO have something to hide. I'm not going to accommodate you.]

[You're a c***roach, if you don't like being stepped on, GTFO]
