Gamasutra has just published my full interview with Bob Jacob! Enjoy. The full version covers many segments I didn't have time to include in the video, including several comments about the development of Cinemaware classics like It Came From the Desert.

Great article

I greatly enjoyed King of Chicago, but that's a game that SERIOUSLY needed a hard drive, which I didn't have at the time. Waiting for the scenes to load off of floppies tested my patience to the breaking point.

Anyhow, the article was very interesting, and I see that there are already many great comments posted for it. Strangely, I never played Three Stooges or "It Came from the Desert." Rocket Ranger was very cool also, but it was too difficult for me, and I couldn't get very far in it.

I always coveted The Three Stooges but strangely never got it until fairly recently. Oddly enough, my very first Amiga game, purchased in conjunction with my Amiga 500, was Lords of the Rising Sun. I never did get Defender of the Crown back then, and I didn't get TV Sports Football until I got a Turbo-Grafx/16. Instead I got TV Sports Basketball, which was really great. So I certainly had an odd Cinemaware experience versus what you would typically expect. Today, as part of my collection I have a lot of Cinemaware stuff on the Amiga, Turbo-Grafx/16, CD-I and others, like the CDTV.
