Matt Chatt – Brenda Romero, Parts 1 & 2

Posted by Rampant Coyote on March 31, 2014

Matt Barton interviewed Brenda Romero for Matt Chat! Parts 1 and 2 are up, covering mainly the Sir Tech era. It’s a fascinating look back into the early games industry.

And part 2:

Great quote: “I’d rather make games for half the money than pretty much anything else in this world.”

There’s a great little discussion about her “apprenticeship” to designer David Bradley, and some insights into the history of Jagged Alliance, Realms of Arkania, and of course Wizardry.

I’m looking forward to Part 3.

Matt Chat is supported via Patreon – go here to support these videos. I am still amazed that these aren’t better-known and better-supported, but it does seem that the majority of gamers have little knowledge or interest in the history of the medium, and even less interest in the people and events that created it. This saddens me, but I’m glad there are a few that keep the faith!
