GamerDad reviewed Spiderweb Software's Avernum 4 (rating it 4.5/5 and noting "Open ended role playing game with over a hundred hours of gameplay, tons of freedom and loads of questsâ€”and it isnâ€™t Oblivion!") and also interviewed Jeff Vogel, designer guy at Spiderweb.
GamerDad: You have been very successful with the Avernum and Geneforge worlds and have sequels to each game planned. Do you have other new ideas or directions or genres you plan to pursue in the future?We'll that's kind of worrying, but I guess it's not the end of--
Jeff Vogel: As a matter of fact, I do. I would love to write a fast-paced, humorous, more casual Paper Mario kind of game. At this point, it's something I'm sure I want to do. Someday.
GamerDad: What is your opinion of console and portable console gaming, and of the systems currently available and forthcoming? Do you have any of them in your house, or plan to in the future?Well now what the fuck?
Jeff Vogel: Pretty much every generation, I weigh all the alternatives, think very hard, and then end up buying a Nintendo. Everything else I want to play is on the PC, but Zelda is only there.
I may get a 360 though, in case I try to write my casual role-playing game to go on Xbox live.
