We Know the Devil was one of my favorite games from last year. It came seemingly out of nowhere and broke conventions typical to visual novels. I was lucky enough to get the writer and co-creative director behind the game on for a post-mortem. She talked about some of how the game was made and what writing choices she strived for. We also talk about Group South for a good bit too.
I had time during a very busy PAX East to get an interview with Christine Love. As I say before the interview, I feel like I whiffed it. Not enough food and water make brain do bad questions. It was still a delight talking to Christine either way
Justin Amirkhani had to go on the experience of a lifetime to find his place in the world. He did this to also learn to create something he actually cared about. We talk about his past and on Vagabonds Dog’s game, Always Sometimes Monsters.
Edmund Mcmillen, who I interviewed last year with his Super Meat Boy cohort, Tommy Refenes, is back at it again. This time he is making a self described Zelda Rogue like game with previous indie coworker Florian Himsl with The Binding of Issac. I was able to get a email interview with him.
An interview with Tommy Tallarico I recorded at Gencon 2010. Sorry for the boat shaking camera work this was taken a long time ago when I was much more inexperienced. We talk about Mega64, Screwattack, Electronic Playground, Earthworm Jim HD (and its complicated issues), and his current goings on at the time.

These interviews were released to public at one time but either ownership switched or files were lost.
