Matt Chat 395: Interview with Leonard Boyarsky

It's been nearly a year since Matt Barton interviewed somebody of interest to the Codex. Back in the day, there wasn't a month where one of his videos wasn't on our front page, but it seems like ran out of famous RPG developers to interview at some point. Luckily, recent developments in the industry have led to new interview opportunities. Namely, the departure of RPG demigod Leonard Boyarsky from Blizzard and the recent unveiling of his hopefully soon to be announced secret project at Obsidian. The first episode of Matt's interview with Leonard starts with some followup questions about his SINFO talk from last year. Topics of discussion include Leonard's educational background as an artist, some of the challenges he faced designing the art for Fallout, and his experience working on the beleaguered Stonekeep.

According to Leonard, he was fortunate to have found himself working in roles, first as a junior artist on Stonekeep with few responsibilities and later on Tim Cain's Fallout team, that insulated him from the turmoil that was rampant in Interplay in those days. As such, he has few horror stories to share about his experiences there, although perhaps that will change when Matt gets around to asking about the circumstances that led to his departure from Interplay.
