Just some various things I have had come across my desk over the last month or so, that you may want to check out if you missed them.
Joe Payne published an article he wrote at “Cultured Vultures” titled “INTERVIEW: Richard “Lord British” Garriott, Creator Of Ultima and Shroud of the Avatar”.
Check it out!
I’m an RPG player. There, I’ve said it. I play RPGs almost exclusively, from ‘Nethack’ to ‘Dark Souls’, with ‘Wizardry’ and ‘Dungeon Keeper’ in the middle. But the games that shaped my childhood love of roleplay were Richard Garriott’s ‘Ultima’ series. From humble roots as ‘Akalabeth’, a dungeon crawler which had you hunting creatures from gremlins to the Balrog, the series went from strength to strength, until it was bought by everyone’s favourite arch nemesis, EA.
So be sure to grab your popcorn and watch the video as well as read the article! This one is titled “Lord British on the virtues of Shroud of the Avatar” and is posted over here at Gamereactor:
We sat down for a chat with legandary game creator Richard “Lord British” Garriott.
