Matt Chat 254: Feargus Urquhart on South Park, Pillars of Eternity, and More
Interview - posted by Infinitron on Fri 29 August 2014, 03:15:40Tags: Feargus Urquhart; Matt Barton; Obsidian Entertainment; Pillars of Eternity; South Park: The Stick of Truth
The latest guest on Matt Barton's show is none other than the CEO of our hearts, Feargus Urquhart. In the first episode of what will be a multi-part interview, Feargus talks a bit about working with publishers, and about the developments of South Park: The Stick of Truth and Pillars of Eternity. In the episode's second half, Matt tries to ask some questions about Obsidian's next Kickstarter, which Feargus deflects rather confusingly by changing the subject back to Pillars of Eternity. At the end of the interview he also talks about some RPG concepts that he'd considered in the past, including a Deadlands-inspired horror/western RPG, and a kung fu RPG he'd considered doing with BioWare back in 2000. The latter sounds a bit like what eventually became Jade Empire, although it's unclear whether Feargus realizes the connection. Whether these concepts are in any way related to Obsidian's next Kickstarter is unknown.
