Is Gonna Catcha the reincarnation of an actual arcade game? More news at 11.

I was just googling for some images of tranquilizer guns, so that I can design Pohena’s more fantastic version of the same arm, when I came across footage of an arcade game called Tranquilizer Gun, made by Sega in 1980.  I don’t know about you, but I the gameplay looked a bit familiar:

Maybe Pohena was a wild game hunter in a past life.  I guess I was much more spot-on than I thought when I decided to make an 80s-arcade-style maze game.  😛

Of course, I didn’t pull the stun-capture-cage game mechanic of Gonna Catcha out of thin air.  It was actually inspired from the game Out to Lunch, a platformer made by Mindscape in 1993 for the Game Boy and SNES and later ported to the Amiga a year later.  You played as a chef who had to round up his escaped ingredients:

I’ll have an update on the progress of the game up in the next few days (I hope).
