Andrew Scoggins also published an Editor's Note about The Guildhall, in which he cited that he is a "sucker for old-school Nintendo games" and talked about finding an ally in Guildhall director Gary Brubaker, who also has a special place in his heart for retro titles. He also discusses the games made at The Guildhall like Kraven Manor, which look like big-budget titles but are developed in a fraction of the time.
