CCC: What lessons did you learn from the original Backbreaker?
NM: We've learned that people love playing a game that's truly live. The old approach of canned action and sports just don't go together. This is why we were so proud of how Euphoria transformed Backbreaker into a truly live experience. To be totally honest – and maybe not surprisingly – we also learnt that writing an entire 11v11 football game from scratch is a lot of work. Luckily, we've done all the heavy lifting on this now and have an absolutely amazing codebase and team to build upon.
