Nice interview, a bit light on the technical details (which I would have preferred to read about). Funny that he says it was nothing to do with him, the fact the games were on NDOS disks... if I recall correctly, the protection track on ATR checked for "jamie123" which makes me believe otherwise

A nice little read. I don't tend to read these things but this was worth the time. Cheers.

I hope too. I am looking for any other game developer to have an interview with him. This one was very enjoyable for me as an interviewer.

2 yrs ago I had an interview with Dan Phillips, about the game Putty that he coded. I dont know how much this interview is known, but you can read it in the Puttymoon website (link is in my sig).

Also, he doesn't seem to like Psygnosis

Thanks for the interview, mailman!

I had thought such things could only be found in Retro Gamer magazine.

Which language were you reading, IC? The English looks about 98% correct to me.

Well done, mailman! Can't wait for your next one.

Well, that's still very good. Remember, mailman knew we wouldn't want him to hang about too long before making it available to us, so he had to type it in quick...

Well, some things were typed wronly from start to finish, which just means he didn't know how to spell that certain thing properly.... if he DID, then at least ONE of them would be correct .

So, I guess that with such a sharp eye you just volunteered for proof-reading and correcting this interview and all those that will follow.

Inevitably, anyone who says other people make spelling and grammar errors promptly makes an error themselves
