First BlizzCast Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has released it's first BlizzCast, a series of podcasts created by Blizzard's Community Team and focusing on the company's current and future game offerings. The first episode features interviews with Art Director Samwise Didier and World of Warcraft Lead Designer Jeff Kaplan.

Join our Community Team in going behind the scenes, to experience the world of Blizzard game making. Each episode, we’ll be interviewing your favorite Blizzard developers and staff, to give you a glimpse of what it is like to make the games you love from their perspective. On top of that, we plan to talk about new features and add to the latest discussions regarding our future projects such as StarCraft II and Wrath of the Lich King.

To kick off our BlizzCast series, we’ve decided to begin where every great Blizzard idea begins, at the concept level. To speak with us we have Samwise Didier, our Art Director and concept artist to many of the popular Blizzard icons you’ve grown to love such as the Pandaren, Fel Orcs, Dark Templars, Zerglings, and many more. We’ll be chatting with Samwise on how he came up with the characters he did, as well as what it is like to work on both the Warcraft and StarCraft franchises. Be sure to view the transcript to see all of the artwork.
The BlizzCast website offers both the MP3 podcasts and transcripts of the interviews. To encourage feedback on the first episode the BlizzCast will be giving away Logitech 5.1 Speakers and StarCraft II hats to some fans who send in comments.
