Greenstone, Tamte Interviews at
11:51 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

German Mac games site has produced two extensive interviews with major Mac gaming figures, both in English and German. The interviews are with Peter Tamte of Destineer and Brian Greenstone of Pangea Software, and cover their contributions to and thoughts about Mac gaming.

Here's a sample of the Greenstone interview, which focuses on Otto Matic:

Otto Matic, your new game which is scheduled for the end of the year - it looks pretty cool, there are some cool screenshots available on the net. It looks like you are really into early scifi movies. How did they influence the game and what can we expect?

Brian Greenstone: Iíve always loved those old 50ís sci-fi movies! When I was 7 years old I started watching them every Saturday morning and they really got me interested in things which eventually lead to this career. I hadnít thought of doing a game based on them until a few years ago when I had an idea about it, but once I started working on the design for Otto Matic I really got into it. The game takes cues from many of the old sci-fi themes from the flying saucers, to the music. It will certainly be the best game weíve ever done.

From the early builds we have seen, we have to agree. The Tamte interview is much shorter, but still contains much valuable information about this budding cross-platform game company. Be sure and check them both out, in your language of choice.
