PC World Interview – More on Warhawk and Twisted Metal

Posted by Rampant Coyote on November 21, 2011

Wow, you get a double-dose of ancient history from me this week! More Warhawk and Twisted Metal goodness!

PC World has published an interview with me about the early days of Playstation game development.

This interview has a few discussions in common with part 1 of my Matt Chat interview. Kinda funny how they coincided like that. But most of the content of both interviews is different. And in both cases, I run off on tangents to cover interesting (IMO) side-stories the interviewer wouldn’t know to ask about. I don’t know if that makes me a bad person to interview or not.

Those were exciting times, but I don’t know if I could go back to that lifestyle again. It was pretty rough on my family back then. It was my “dream job” at the time, but I got pretty burned out after a couple of years of that.

    Woaaaah… you worked on Animorphs too!?

    I actually bought that game a few weeks ago. 🙂

    Thanks for another good interview.

    Yeah, I should be in the credits as “Additional Programming” or something like that.

    Great interview and thanks for the stories from back then.

    It would have been nice for PC world to have mentioned your latest project. Not even at the end. At least they provided the link to this website.

    If I was better at marketing, I would have have snuck in some kind of plug as part of the interview. So it’s as much my own missed opportunity as anything else. But at least they linked to the website.

    And there seems to be one more article about Warhawk recently…Ars Technica just proclaimed it a masterpiece.

    Ah, cool! Good to see people do still remember it…
