Cinemaware has posted an interview with one of its original employees from the late '80s, David Riordan. Cinemaware was responsible for a number of the most popular Amiga games, and they are now in the process of redeveloping them for the Mac and PC. New graphics, sound effects, and more are being put in place for the redesigned versions of titles like Defender of the Crown and The Three Stooges.
Riordan talks about starting at the company, his own history in the gaming business, and some of the trends he sees in today's market. Here's a clip from the interview:
Q: How influential do you think Cinemaware was?Check out the Cinemaware web site now to read through the rest of the interview, and be on the lookout for more information on their upcoming Mac titles.
A: It's a hard question to answer having been a part of it. I think the Cinemaware concept was always a favorite of other developers and game players alike. The media also loved our approach. At the time, games didn't have a great deal of character development in them. Cinemaware pushed the art of character development based design to new levels and also raised the bar in graphic presentation. We showed what was possible if you were clever and had good artists and programmers.
