The final part of Matt Barton's interview with Neal Hallford is about Neal's career after the collapse of Cavedog Entertainment. He describes his work on Dungeon Siege, and his contribution to the Everquest spin-off Champions of Norrath, where he collaborated with none other than Chris Avellone. Most of the interview, however, is dedicated to tales of Neal's long-term association with Gas Powered Games and Chris Taylor, with the intention of promoting the now-cancelled Wildman project, which is a bit sad.

Neal also has a bit to say about the state of the gaming industry, and about his plans going forward, though I'm not sure how relevant those are now.

Matt used a good chunk of the Chris Taylor endorsement in this video in his interview with Chris Taylor at the end. At least GPG were saved though what price that will be is unknown.
