Spiderweb's Vogel on Indie Games
7:49 AM | Anthony Wang | 4 comments

IGN has posted an interview with Jeff Vogel of Spiderweb Software, a family owned Mac games developer. Jeff discusses innovation in indie games from his own experiences in developing unique fantasy role-playing games.

Why? Maybe the whole historical thing made the game sound like it was (ugh) Educational (vomit). Truly the kiss of death. Maybe nobody knew who the Celts were. Or maybe the reason most people make their role-playing games straight-up hack 'em good fantasy is that this is what sells.

But I learned my lesson. Sort of. I held off on doing something cool and different for three more years until I started my Geneforge series, which is a funky sci-fi / fantasy hybrid full of genetic experimentation. And which sells OK, but still not as good as the basic fantasy stuff
