Spiderweb's Jeff Vogel Interviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Captain D's PC Gaming Blog has posted a new interview with Spiderweb Software's Jeff Vogel. The veteran RPG game developer discussed his own history, why the role playing game genre appeals to him, and which games are his personal favorites.

1/ Did you ever imagine when you were young that you'd one day be making a living creating computer games?
Absolutely. All I did during my adolescence was dream about the day when I would design computer games. I spent so much time with my AppleII+, writing games in Basic. No surprises there.

2/ Why the traditional CRPG genre in particular? Was it a love for the game / aptitude for programming that style?
It's hard to say. I have a passion for all sorts of games. But I think it's the RPG's way of lending itself to telling a story that really drew me in.

8/ What would you say are the major influences on the games you make (whether other games / paper-based AD&D / films / books / whatever)?
The most important thing I do is think about what sort of game I feel like playing. Then I write that. That's where all my energy will be.
