Dragon's Lair 3D Q&A
9:01 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

The folks over at HomeLan recently got a chance to sit down and chat with the CEO of Dragonstone Software about their upcoming game Dragon's Lair 3D. For those who are unfamiliar with the game, it is a remake of the classic 2D adventure game, Dragon's Lair. Dragon's Lair told the classic story of a knight going on a quest to save a princess from a dragon's clutches, but with a more humorous twist. The original game featured hand drawn animation by the legendary Don Bluth, who also returned to help with a number of aspects of Dragon's Lair 3D.

HomeLan's interview covers mostly developmental aspects of the game, here's snippet:

HomeLAN - The original Dragon's Lair is very fondly remembered as one of the most unique looking games released. Is there a lot of pressure to make the new game as memorable as the original?

Rick Dyer - We definitely felt an obligation to create something that our original Dragon's Lair fans would enjoy. We wanted to bring back the same characters, the same incredible animation, the same look and feel, but put that together with next-generation game play that brings more excitement, more adventure. The game had to be painstakingly recreated down to the tiniest detail to translate into 3D and if you've seen the environments of the original game, you know that we had our work cut out for us

Also according to the interview the Mac version of the game should be out by the holiday season. The Mac and PC versions will be published by Ubi Soft. To reach the full interview, follow the link provided below.
