Bioware Bosses on Baldur's Gate
9:45 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story

PC Zone has posted an interview with two of the founders and current joint CEO's of Bioware, Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk. The article discusses some of the games which inspired the Baldur's Gate series along with some background on why they started the project in the first place. Here is a sample:

We always believed the RPG genre was strong. It practically served as the foundation for Apple/Amiga gaming in the last 15 years - this was central in our belief that Baldur's Gate needed to be made. The reason RPGs weren't selling well in the early to mid '90s wasn't because all the RPG players had moved on; there just weren't enough appealing games for classic RPG fans to play. For us, Baldur's Gate was the solution to this problem.
There's enough talk of Baldur's Gate II to help build anticipation for MacPlay's immanent release of this long-awaited title for the Mac. You can also pre-order BG II at a special price of $39 at the link below, including a free Collector's Edition bonus Disc (only available to new and existing MGCD subscribers).
