Audio Interview with Bradley Toliver

I finally managed to sit down and chat with Bradley Toliver AKA ComfortJones maker of Abandon: The Town.

I was especially keen on chatting with him because the mod features some unusual gameplay mechanic choices and I thought it would be interesting for other modders and players to hear the reasons behind them.

We chat for about 46 minutes and cover pretty much everything I wanted to.

I finally got my time machine to work again, that flux-capacitor really needs to be overhauled, and managed to sit down and chat with Half-Rats, the creator of Half-Rats – A Fever Dream.

We chat for just under the hour about the making of the mod.

This morning, I sat down and chatted with Midas de Laat, a game design student from The Netherlands.

He made Forgotten Valley for Ep2 that was posted on the site yesterday.

We chat about his course, the design process and the mod itself.

There’s even a chance to win a random $5 Steam game – listen to find out how!

Audio Interview with Alex Frazer and David Buckley

Project: Blue Room is a single player mod with an ulterior motive. It wants learn about how you play. Well, the mod itself doesn’t, but the authors do.

So, what better way to figure out what’s going on than to kidnap and interrogate them? Actually, there is a better way: call them on the Internet and chat with them, so that’s what I did.

Be warned, we talk for nearly 90 minutes, all of it fun and interesting.

If you have any questions, please post them here and you might get an answer.

Audio Interview with Wilson C.

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

Triage has generated some interesting discussion and Wilson, the lead developer, and I found some time to chat.

I grill him on the significant changes made to the gameplay and I have to say he responses were thoughtful and insightful.

That’s not to say he thinks the mod is perfect and we also discuss the errors made.

It’s about an hour long and the interview seems to end three times but I suddenly start talking about something else.

Lastly, I seem to cut him off at the end, so sorry about that.

Enjoy.
