Blue Fire looks to be offering plenty of platforming peril, which may just lead to its bottomless pits becoming more dangerous than its foes.

Blue Fire dev discusses their team size and how long the game has been in the works

A small team working their butts off

Some games have hundreds and hundreds of developers cranking away on them, but others don't have that much manpower behind them. In an interview with Nintendo Life, Santiago Rosa, Co-Lead at Robi Studios, talked about the small team they have working on the upcoming Blue Fire.

Blue Fire was born about a year ago, give or take. At that time, it was just me and my brother Gabriel. We began pre-production for it while doing art outsourcing for other games and started to feel a great potential in the character, Umbra. Soon we decided to go all-in. We stopped our outsourcing work and started getting our actual team together. It's been several months now with all of us fully dedicated to Blue Fire. We're a solid team of 9 people constantly working to get Blue Fire up and running!

Blue Fire developer says Super Mario 64 and Zelda: Ocarina of Time were his biggest sources of inspiration

Two of the best!

Nintendo themselves have put together an interview with Gabriel Rosa, developer on the upcoming third-person action/adventure title, Blue Fire. In the interview, Rosa reveals two games that had the biggest impact on him, and there's no doubt you've heard of them.

It may sound very cliché, but 3D worlds always blew my mind more than anything. Ever since my brother (my studio co-founder) and I received our first Nintendo 64 system, I’ve been mesmerized by the genre. Spawning in a 3D world and being able to move and look around amazed me—and still does. We grew up with Nintendo games and I was completely fascinated by the worlds and places I could explore. I think both The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Super Mario 64 were the games that had the most impact on me. In fact, I wanted to be a game developer even back then.
