Welcome to Shocked to Bits featuring up-and-coming content creator Bit Cloud Gaming. Dive deep into the video game industry with news, analysis, interviews, and coverage that will leave you shocked to bits Episode 196 of the RGT Podcast welcomes John Draisey, the Video Director of Draisey Digital where he is also a Houdini 3D Artist and an Arnold Render Specialist.
John just recently signed with PlayStation as one of their newest partners and he was very eager to share with us the details of his team’s newest game MotorCubs RC. The game recently hit its goal on Kickstarter and not so soon after that, John pitched the game to Sony, and to his surprise, Sony was onboard and welcomed him and his very talented team to their PlayStation Partners program. In the interview, Draisey mentioned that originally the game was a small idea that quickly transformed into a passion project and surprisingly the game has a lot in common.
With a crowd favorite PlayStation IP called Motorstorm, we were very intrigued by what this game could possibly look and to our surprise, John directed our attention to the game’s live demo reveal, and I must say it definitely brings back those good old Motorstorm vibes. The interview continued for over one hour and not only was it a lot of fun and full of laughs I absolutely loved the energy and humbleness of John Draisey. For the full interview and discussion, check it out below with time stamps.
