Matt Chat 245: Robert Sirotek on Wizardry

Interview - posted by Infinitron on Tue 17 June 2014, 11:55:14

In the latest episode of his show, Matt Barton continues his interview with Sir-Tech co-founder Robert Sirotek. In this episode, Robert continues telling various anecdotes from the development and release of the first Wizardry game. Special attention is paid to Sir-Tech's successful export of the Wizardry franchise to Japan, which had a huge influence on the video game industry there. He also talks a bit about Sir-Tech's implementation of copy protection in their games, something which earned them a certain degree of infamy.

Interestingly, Robert claims that the rights to Wizardry 1-5 are still owned by his family, and not by the Japanese. I guess that explains why they're not on GOG. I still think there might be more to it, though. I wonder if Matt had the balls to ask about that.
