Who should we interview next?

Post by Quaid » Tue Feb 10, 2009 5:04 pm

So come on folks, we've had the candid lesser-spotted Ritman, who else do you want us to track down next and interview for future Retro Gamer podcasts?

For me it's got to be:

David Braben

Archer Maclean (always got something interesting to say)

Trip Hawkins (EA early days and 3DO)

Jez San for me. I think the Starstrike games were the clinchers.

Or the Particle Systems team.

I'm not sure if this is a request specific for podcasts, and if we're supposed to exclude anyone already featured in an article in the mag (Braben, for instance). Anyway, I'd love to hear Matthew Smith on a podcast.

Good choice! I bought about 4 of their games at the end of my Amiga years, and they did some fantastic stuff. I was actually thinking about Napalm today, when someone was telling me about his latest Command & Conquer mission.

Napalm was the final straw for me on the Amiga - had a 1200, cd-rom, blizzard '030 with 8meg; really wanted it, demo wouldn't work on my spec. Finally thought - why bother. (Would really love to play it still though)

Bought a Playstation and Command & Conquer Red Alert instead.

Back on topic, and it won't happen I'm sure, but - Udo Gertz - how were his games on the C16 so good.

I have been in contact with the genius that is dave Theurer but he's proving something of a tricky person to track down. The problem being that he's only free for the 15 minutes that it takes him to get to work...
