Where did he say that?
Btw. they are a two-man team and look like this: https://www.maniac.de/extended/micro-mages-frische-kost-fuers-nes/2/

#retrogaming

(I mean technically the game was retro even then, because if it´s celebration of 80s music and aesthetics).

But it is a fun game, very true to what you see in the movie, down to the Mario-like sounding music and the small digitised voices, the stumpmoving,…
And it runs on an actual 1989 Megadrive!
