Matt Barton has been interviewing Might and Magic series creator Jon Van Caneghem, his first major RPG interview in quite a while. The first part of the interview was about Creature Quest, Jon's new free-to-play mobile game, and wasn't of much interest to the Codex. Now Matt has uploaded the second part, where they talk about his past career. It's clear that Matt is a big fan of the series, and there's lots of goofing off as Jon shares anecdotes about the development of the early Might and Magic games as well as the first Heroes of Might and Magic. He also talks about his attempt to produce a Might and Magic Online MMO that failed due to 3DO's reluctance to provide a sufficient budget for the project.
