Andrew Welch Interviewed on MacSlash
6:00 AM | Richard Porcher | Comment on this story

MacSlash has posted an interview with Ambrosia Software founder and El Presidente, Andrew Welch. Ambrosia is the die-hard shareware company that brought Mac gamers such hugely popular titles as Escape Velocity and Deimos Rising, and the game-creation engine Coldstone.

In the interview, Welch discusses the issues surrounding porting games to Mac OS X, the nature of Thaumaturgy, and their upcoming sequel, EV Nova:

MacSlash: Mac user job efficiency ratings will be plunging as soon as Escape Velocity Nova gets released. What can you tell us about it?

Welch: EV Nova is going to be a monster project. The EV Nova team has taken the core concepts that made Escape Velocity such a huge hit, and made everything bigger, deeper, and more exciting than ever. The storylines and history behind the universe in EV Nova are so lush and rich, there's a very purposeful feeling to everything that is present in the game. It isn't just a few threads of stories here and there, it is a wonderfully woven tapestry of a game.
