Animator Paul “Otaking77077” Johnson’s at it again! Just a year after last year’s TIE Fighter film, Johnson’s back with a new short feature. The film, titled Game Master: R-Type, is part Captain N, and part loving homage to Irem’s R-Type series of shooters.
The package is tied together with a slick visual style that’s reminiscent of the sci-fi shows of the ’90s.
The feature was animated by Johnson at 17 frames per second. The full staff list includes:
- Animator: Otaking77077 (Paul Johnson)
