STDB!: Hi! and first of all, the typical question. Can you tell us something about Funktronic Labs?
Funktronik Labs: Funktronic Labs is a game studio located in Los Angeles, and we’ve been around since 2013. Our studio’s focus has always been to create juicy high-quality games, and what can be “juicier” than a game with water and boats!
STDB!: Now tell us something about Wave Break, where it comes from, what can we expect from the game?
Funktronik Labs: The concept for the design of Wave Break was the most natural to us compared to many of the games that we’ve produced. As a studio obsessed with technology, we were messing around with boats driving on real-time simulated water when our engineer Coty decided to try putting in some kickflips, that is when the game design started to come together. Furthermore, our studio folks are obsessed with classic arcade skating games like the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series. Wave Break itself is inspired by those classics, but with an innovative mix of old school cool and tons of innovative online features.
STDB!: Will the game have crossplay, to be easily to find players on the online battles?
Funktronik Labs: Cross-play is currently not available for Wave Break. Although we understand that cross-play might be technically feasible, is it fairly non-trivial for our small team to ensure full cross-play compatibility across console platforms.
STDB!: How is the developing for Stadia? What kind of support did you receive from Google?
Funktronik Labs: Developing for Stadia has been quite a smooth sailing, pun intended. From the API level, to the engineering and marketing support from Google, they’ve been great to work with.
STDB!: How did Wave Break become a 'First On Stadia' game? If you can tell us something.
Funktronik Labs: Being First on Stadia became the best choice for us to maintain our full creative freedom while completing the project to the vision we saw fit. We were also excited for the Stadia features they had planned; thus in the end, it was ultimately the best choice for our team.
STDB! Are you planning to bring more games to Stadia?
Funktronik Labs: No current plans yet, but we’ve had such a positive experience working with Google that it would be great to work with them on a future project.
