Matt Chat 143: The Fat Man Part I

Here's the interview with The Fat Man himself, George Sanger. George is indeed "The Man" when it comes to PC game audio, particularly back in the pivotal early 90s when we moved from the PC buzzer/speakers to Soundblasters. George helped standardize the industry and did all kinds of fantastic productions, including The 7th Guest and Wing Commander soundtracks. Lots of great stuff in this interview about how he got his start and much more.

Matt Chat 142: Wasteland

Wasteland! By now, everybody who has ever been a fan of this game knows about Brian Fargo's Kickstarter project to make the sequel. So, naturally, I decided this week to take a look at the hallowed original. While not everything has aged gracefully, I must say it still holds up rather well today, with a particularly gritty storyline and great writing (printed in the manual, of course). It's also a remarkably violent game, going so far as to have the player slaughtering "cute little animals" and even babies! This game would definitely get an M rating today and probably arouse the ire of our good friend Hillary Clinton. At any rate here's the video!

Matt Chat 141: David Fox on Cadillacs and Dinosaurs

This week's episode is focused mostly on David's later career, which includes the FMV game Cadillacs and Dinosaurs: The Second Cataclysm, which he'd probably rather people forgot about. ;) Still, the story of its creation is definitely worth listening to. David also talks about his news and iOS projects with Electric Eggplant. Finally, the ale of the week is perhaps the ultimate vintage gamer's ale: 8-Bit Pale Ale!

Matt Chat 140: David Fox on Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders

I'm back this week with David Fox round III, this time focusing on his epic adventure game, Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders. David has plenty of great stories about the game's development, as well as Lucasfilm Games development strategies in general. It's really fun hearing him talk about the competition between his company and Sierra On-Line--and speculate why Zak was so much more popular in Germany than elsewhere. The ale this week hales from the Netherlands, so naturally I had to offer a toast to our very own Mark Vergeer. ;)

Matt Chat 139: Labyrinth, Koronis Rift & More with David Fox

I'm back this week with part 2 of my interview with Lucasfilm designer David Fox. In this part, we talk about a lot of issues David faced in the 80s, such as why he disliked working on conversions (ports) and the steps they took to combat piracy. We also talk about Koronis Rift and Eidolon, as well as Maniac Mansion. We start talking about Zak here as well. Lots of good stuff for fans of Lucasfilm games.

Matt Chat 138: Matt Interviews David Fox of LucasFilm Games

Here's a Matt Chat for all fans of Zak McKracken, Rescue on Fractalus!, and all the other great Lucasfilm Games classics. In this first bit, David and I chat about his early days and what was going on behind the scenes during the development of Fractalus. Did you know that it was George Lucas who proposed the alien imposters and that any mention of them be kept out of the manual? Classic stuff.
