We recently were able to grab an interview with Trent Custers, the Founder, Creative Director, and Game Designer of League of Geeks, a studio designer an upcoming indie title called "Armello", which features an anthropomorphic cast of characters. Check out what he had to say about the work so far on the game, and some special details about the story, characters, and furry influences.
(This article was first published on Gaming Furever in 2013. We're reposting it now as a flashback for those looking forward to playing in our upcoming Armello-based events.)
Night in the Woods is an upcoming adventure game from Infinite Fall, featuring dozens of animal characters, a hand-drawn world filled with things to interact with, and an intriguing story filled with wit. After a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2013, the three-person team is finally getting close to releasing its creation, with a planned release on PC and PS4 this year.
The team was at E3 to show off the game, which garnered lots of praise while there. Alec Holowka from Infinite Fall sat down with PlayStation.Blog to show off the game and talk about what to expect when it releases:

Welcome to the brand-spanking new Gaming Furever!
We've changed a lot around here, including what we're going to try to be to the fandom moving forward. For years, we've had a database of furry game information. While this was cool to have as a reference for those who may not know all there is to know about furry games and their history, it was a large undertaking for the small staff we have. Thankfully, the furry gaming scene continues to grow at an increasing rate, and we're moving our focus to covering updates to those games which include anthropomorphic characters, or especially animal-driven titles.
We are also reinvigorating our community scene! We want to have social hangouts, gaming meetups online, tournaments, and more! That's where fun happens and friendships are built, and we want to help facilitate that. We're bringing in staff with a passion for gaming and a knack for being friendly and peppy, and with experience running gaming events & tournaments online and in the real world. This should help keep things from getting stagnant around here less often.
Of course, you may also notice that the previous site data, including articles, reviews, forums, and users was wiped. We did this for a number of reasons, and have held out from doing it in the past. Here they are:
Out with the old, in with the new! Speaking of new, we're very excited to welcome a brand new staff team here at GF. Instead of having a huge stable of staff, we decided to go with a smaller, more dedicated team who can bring their own individual experiences to the site in awesome ways. We hope you'll get to know them as they spend their time on the site, heading up social gaming events, and more!
So there you have it! Follow us here on the site for news, a growing community of gamers, and more! Invite your clan/guild to set up a group over on the community, find local furs to have RPG meet-ups or hangouts, make friends and chat em up, upload your favorite screenshots or personal art to the community, set up your profile with your gamertag or PSN name and more! There's lots to do! Make GF your own!
