The Man behind ADOM @ Temple of the Roguelike

And now for something which completely slipped under our radar: there's an interview with Thomas Biskup, the creator of ADOM, which some still consider to be one of the best rogulikes, at the Temple of the Roguelike: Part 1 and Part 2. If you're like me, you may be eager to read something about the guy behind the game you lost a couple of hundreds of hours on. Two tidbits ("SZ" is Santiago Zapata, the interviewer):

SZ: Have you won ADOM (lawfully?)?

TB: No, never. I never had the time for that ;-) Basically I rise pretty easily to levels 15-18 and then I need to concentrate. Usually I die because I’m an impatient player ;-)

(...)

SZ: Did you play Fallout’s latest version? how would you compare it with the first one (Wasteland)?

TB: I’ve never played Fallout (any version) so I can’t comment.​
Read the whole thing to find out more e.g. about the troubles with developing an ADOM version for iPhone.

Thanks, The Idiot!
