Postby Aus-RED-5 » Thu Apr 21, 2011 12:14 pm

I thought I'd pass this interesting interview along to this site for those who don't lurk over at the site.

The original post is by Duper.
Here's the direct Link to the video.

Wow, the promo version of "Inferno" aka Descent very interesting to see!
Some really cool stuff to watch and learn about from the early days. :thumb:

They seriously made a game called Tuberacer?

Makes me wonder whether the D3 cheat was a promo or the game was named after the D3 cheat...

It's interesting how much these people are like the M:TG team... when Mike Kulas is talking it I have to remind myself that he isn't Mark Rosewater. Doesn't help that he looks so similar.

Just looking at that underlines how ridiculously old D2 is by gaming standards. :mrgreen:
