When you say Westlake Interactive, you think Glenda Adams. However behind her stands a pride of talented and enthusiastic Mac programmers working hard to bring us the games we love to play. Brad Oliver is one of those talented programmers. Brad has contributed greatly to the Mac gaming scene through his MacMAME work and his work at Westlake.
IMG recently spoke with Brad Oliver about his work at Westlake, and the recent completion of his port of Jedi Knight II to the Mac.
Here's a clip from the interview:
IMG: The Jedi Knight 2 demo is a lot of fun. What was your involvement on JK2? What about Clone Campaigns?Be sure to check out the rest of the interview.
IMG Interview: Westlake's Brad Oliver
BO: I did the Mac conversion of JK2 for Westlake and Aspyr. I didn't do much of anything with the Clone Campaigns expansion - that was Duane Johnson. I did do the conversion for Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, which largely built on the work I did with Mark Krenek for Age of Empires 2 since they use the same engine.
IMG: Did you get tired of the whole Star Wars thing after taking part in two Star Wars ports?
BO: Surprisingly no. Usually when I get close to completion on a port, I'm pretty tired of the game, whatever it is. Age2 is a game I still like to play, as are Centipede, SWGB and JK2. Maybe I've become better at not burning myself out, I don't know.
