The best way to describe MaxOfS2D is a prolific animator. He has taken Earthbound, a cherished Japanese SuperNES role playing game and remoulded it. He uses characters we recognise from Team Fortress 2, a game he loves now, to breath life back into this ’94 title.
In the space of a just over a year MaxOfS2D’s YouTube site has seen well over 50 animations. He seemingly posts everything that comes into his mind; ranging from concept tests, to “how-to use 3ds Max” (his weapon of choice), to random moments captured in GMod, all the way through to a dancing lady succubus pyro.
We asked you at the beginning of 2012 to come up with questions for Max and you certainly obliged us. We had more than 160 entrants, most of which were polite enough to speak aloud. We took 20 of the best (one was edited out) and put them to Max in this interview. Our thanks to everyone who entered, the 20 finalists bagging themselves a KritzKast Lo-Fi Longwave hat.
