The last episode of Matt Barton's interview with Guido Henkel is titled "Guido Henkel on Planescape: Torment", but it's actually about a lot more than that. Over the course of 35 minutes, Guido describes the circumstances behind his departure from Attic Entertainment and Germany, his employment at Interplay and the atmosphere at Black Isle Studios during the development of PS:T, his minor involvement in the development of Fallout 2 and Neverwinter Nights, his work on a cancelled superhero-themed MMORPG for SquareSoft after leaving Interplay, and his involvement with formal game design education.
