Gamasutra recently interviewed Cliff Johnson, creator of the award winning Fool's Errand and its soon to be released sequel The Fool and His Money. The interview covers his early days as a film student, his experiences in the gaming industry, and more information about the much delayed The Fool and His Money.

With the release (of The Fool and His Money) under 2 months away, Johnson’s eagerness to talk about the game in detail is probably a good sign that this date might actually be the one. “Bushwhacked by buccaneers and robbed of the fourteen treasures, the Fool discovers that a new bewitchment now plagues the Land of Tarot,” he enthuses. “Traditional wealth has been abandoned, and in its stead, words and letters have become the new currency. Continuing from the narrative of the first, the story is a complete adventure in itself, illustrated in storybook silhouettes and described in text. As the Sun provided a map to help the Fool on his Errand, this time, it is the Moon who guides the Fool with a silvery map to guide him on his road from rags to riches.”

“There are familiar challenges of words and wit with new twists and turns,” he continues. “And other enchantments, unfamiliar, that tease and tantalize with hands-on visual mischief. For every challenge solved, a piece of the Moon’s map is transformed. Solving the secrets of the map promises to deliver to the Fool the gift of prophecy. All told, the game provides about 40 hours of puzzlement for you and yours to unravel through discovery, wit, and aplomb.”
Looking beyond the release of the The Fool and His Money, Johnson also offered eager fans a glimpse of things to come.

He also notes that he intends to finish the Fool’s story with The Fool's Paradise, and has intentions to continue the story of the number 3, with 3's a Crowd, and 3's the Charm. “Growing up with The Lord of the Rings books gave me trilogy on the brain,” he adds wryly.
The currently scheduled release date for The Fool and His Money is December 4th.

I've been patiently waiting for A Fool and his Money for ages now! Makes me wonder who the Fool really is here  ;)
