In the latest Matt Chat episode, Matt "J_C" Barton interviews Guido Henkel on the latter's early days. Among other things, Guido talks about the start of Attic Entertainment, his love for text adventures, Die Drachen von Laas, The Bard's Tale and Spirit of Adventure, Brian Fargo and how Guido got to be the producer on Planescape: Torment, Amiga and Atari, as well as the difference between US and German game(r)s. (Spoiler: German games tend to focus on gameplay.)
Also, Guido mentions how he loaded up Realms of Arkania: Shadows over Riva recently and immediately saw some really poor design there.
Naturally, this interview is part of Guido's attempt to bring Deathfire closer to its funding goal.
