HomeLAN Fed has posted up an interview with Brian Fargo of inXile about his new company as well as Bard's Tale. Here's some of the big fun:
HomeLAN - What lessons have you learned from your work at Interplay that have played into the formation of InXile and on the making of The Bard's Tale?
Brian Fargo - I've learned so much about the need for true pre-production, hiring people who buy off on the vision, clear communication, goal setting and taking a broader perspective at the market as we try and launch into a saturated field. But people is the biggest thing I've really learned to think about. Great things will come from talented, hardworking people who all get along with each other. And it is so rare that greatness comes from anything but that. I hope I have learned to become a better manager by giving strong direction yet allowing people the comfort of feeling they can take the game to the next level with their own great ideas.
I thought the most important lesson would be never to let the French have controlling shares of your company.
