Ninja Pizza Girl, a supreme platformer with a deep-dish message, on show at PAX Aus 2014Disparity Games co-director Nicole Stark talked to us about the real message beneath the pizza and martial arts toppings.
[MUSIC] I'm Nicole Stock and I'm making Ninja Pizza Girl. Ninja Pizza Girl is a game about bullying, resilience and pizza delivering ninjas. The platformer is mirrors edgy but without the rage quit factor. So was Mirror's Edge an influence? What other games were kind of like, what were in your mind when you were making it? Actually the very first Sonic. It was the first game I fell in love with. And I really love the first two levels where you just felt like you were flying. And we wanted to create a game like that that anyone could play, that they get the experience of just flying and flowing through a world. So, I'm gathering that your protagonist is the titular Ninja Pizza Girl. Yes it is. She's based on [UNKNOWN] who was a pizza delivery girl and also liked Kung fu. We used to joke that she was our Ninja Pizza Girl. Been greenlit it'll be on Steam. It's on Wii U. Xbox One, PS4, Vita, and it'll be on mobile tablets. [MUSIC]
