Codex Year of the Donut
why does he suck at every game he plays
I don't know but having played World of Xeen a few times, I had to stop watching when he walks straight out of town, gets everyone diseased and poisoned, then returns to town with 58 gold and can't find the temple.

Michael Cranford is the creator of The Bard's Tale as well as Centauri Alliance, Darkseed, and the upcoming Wise Wands NFT CRPG.

:what:




Wise Wands NFT CRPG


:Tell me more.

About this trainwreck about to derail.


I'll listen to any interview with any CRPG developer.

I listen at .25 speed so give me 4 days to reply to this post.

I like Matt, but his show has obviously been gradually going downhill over the last ten years or so, garnering less and less interest.

Not necessarily because he has done anything wrong, but he obviously started running out of old school game devs with interesting anecdotes willing to be interviewed.

Still props to a man who gave so much of himself and worked with so much earnestness for so long with almost no reward, all to satisfy an underserved grognard audience. He is the ultimate hobbyist.

Matt doesn't have time to edit his interviews into 20-25 minute episodes anymore. Maybe that works for the podcast generation but not for me. I can't newspost this!



Annnnd it's time for Knights of the Chalice 2, one of my new favorite indie CRPGs. It's certainly tough and even frustrating at times, but it sure caught me in its resilient web!!!

I'm on an actual spaceship. No joke.
Matt has done an amazing job with his interviews but most of his content is him playing games now and that's something I can do myself

Pierre is the creator of the Knights of the Chalice series, one of my favorite indie RPG series. We talk about all manner of topics related to his games, the genre, the business, and so much more.
