Dive into pure arcade nostalgia!

This morning, Dotemu shared a documentary showcasing the making of the upcoming Windjammers 2.

The documentary, Windjammers 2 – An Arcade Legacy in 2022, pulls back the curtains and takes a deep dive into the development cycle for the unexpected sequel. CEO Cyrille Imbert reveals that the first challenge Dotemu faced was obtaining the rights to work on both the Windjammers remake, as well as the sequel. From the beginning, Dotemu had a keen interest in the IP and hoped to revitalize it for modern audiences.

In addition, the developers discuss the weight of the game as their very first title developed from scratch. Until development for the Windjammers sequel began, however, Dotemu previously only worked on remasters and ports. The remainder of the documentary discusses the process of developing and coding the entire game from scratch and the importance placed on creating something both fresh and familiar.

Overall, the Windjammers 2 documentary is a love letter to the original game and a celebration of the sequel’s completion. The comprehensive film highlights the thought process behind every decision in the game. In addition, as the developers discuss their ups and downs, the passion they feel towards the ultimate flying disc tournament is palpable. You can watch the full documentary below.
