Krool Toys Is Making Nostalgic Video Games Inspired By Your Favorite Albums

“As a fan of artists, you want more than just a T-shirt or a hoodie to put up in your apartment,” says Cohen. “We kind of just approached it that way. What would we want from our favorite artists?”

Cohen and Chinai learned how to make these games through watching hours of YouTube tutorials and scrolling Reddit threads. The pair handles the graphic design, programming, and musical score of each game with timelines varying from game to game. The Pluto x Baby Pluto cartridge took two weeks, while the I Know Nigo! game, which imitates the NES’ classic Duck Hunt only took about two days. Sometimes, the duo works faster to capitalize on the hype around an upcoming release.
