A Place in the West – An Interview with Ross and Michael.

The range of creations based on the Half-Life series never ceases to amaze me. Of course, that’s probably true of many IP franchises but Half-Life is the only one I am interested in.

I can’t say I have always been a fan of comics and am a little embarrassed to say that the movie “Unbreakable” was the first time I had really thought about their societal impact and influence.

Even as a child, I never really bought comics, so it was with some trepidation that I started to read A Place in the West. I won’t lie – it took a while for me to become interested and I did find it tough going at times, but I will say that I enjoyed what I read, even if I didn’t agree with all the creative choices.

I actually printed all the chapters and read them like a tradition comic and I actually liked that more than reading them on-screen (call me old-fashioned if you want).

That said, I have absolutely no hesitation at all in recommending reading the comic. The first chapter is free but the following ones are much better and at a very fair price of 1.99 Euros.

Below is a brief interview I conducted with the creators of the comic and I would like to thank them for taking the time to reply to my questions.

All the images below are taken from the first chapter.

So, either before or after reading the interview, go visit the A Place in the West Steam page and get reading.

Text Interview with Mantas Sajevicius AKA MrFlanker

Below is a short text interview with Mantas Sajevicius AKA MrFlanker, the maker of Overawe.

I know it’s been months since its release, but we tried to have an audio interview but our schedules never matched and then there was a delay in sending and replying to the questions.

Feel free to post your questions as comments, but I can’t guarantee that Mantas will answer them. Enjoy.

Text Interview with MyoHyo

I am very pleased to say that I finally managed to finish the mod and therefore conclude the interview.

I am sure there were a lot more questions I could have asked but I didn’t want to press my luck.

Allow me to thank MyoHyo for responding so quickly to the questions.

Text Interview with Muddasheep

As part of the Hazardous Half-Quake Quatridual, event, I was due to have an audio interview with Muddasheep.

Unfortunately, due to our schedules, this is currently not possible.

Instead, I sent him some questions, which he kindly answered. Even if I say so myself, it’s an interesting read.

If you have any questions for him, please add them in the comments and he may, and I stress MAY, pop by and answer them.

Text Interview 2 with Chris Fox and Jose M Ameyugo

I’ve been trying to get both Jose and Chris online to record an audio interview for weeks. It was impossible, so we agreed on a text one instead. The questions were sent by email, so it may read a little strangely. Enjoy the read – there’s some interesting answers in there.
