Matt Chat 300: Half of a Chris Avellone Interview

Interview - posted by Infinitron on Tue 21 July 2015, 18:22:57

Tags: Chris Avellone; Matt Barton

For the 300th episode of his show, Matt Barton decided to interview Chris Avellone - mainly about his involvement with the recently announced Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, it seems. Unfortunately, something got fucked up and the audio track for the main part of the interview was lost, leaving only 13 or so minutes of Q&A about miscellaneous stuff. In that time, Chris talks a bit about his failure to make it into Bard's Tale IV, and about the types of genres and games he'd like to work on after he's done with his current projects. He seems to be interested in working on a game that doesn't utilize a traditional RPG "talking head" set-up for dialogue. He'd also like to work on a "mundane" hard science fiction game. Chris hasn't forgotten his Arcanum LP, but he's postponing that in order to help create more content for Torment and Siege of Dragonspear.

To fill in the rest of the episode, Matt added an additional part of his ongoing interview with MUD pioneer Richard Bartle, but I haven't been following that. Perhaps he can submit the audioless part of the Avellone interview to a lip reader for transcription?
