Another Interview is in
I've just completed the open IRC interview with mapper Cinderkarst. It turned out well and hopefully everyone will find the information interesting as well insightful. All total I have about 15 pages in size 10 Times New Roman font with the unedited transcript. While there is a lot of fat to trim, that should give you a good idea of how much information was discussed. With my highschool graduation coming up this weekend, I'm going to be a little busy, but I should still be able to have the final interview up at tJY by the beginning of next week, if not sooner. I've enjoyed the process of doing these interviews over the past few months and I look forward to at least one more open interview with all the staff sometime around 2845's multiplayer release. Hopefully all the interviews I've done will only make that final one all the more easier and better.
On a darker note, I'm becoming less and less optimistic about the imminent release of the ATR video and the ATR. I'm convinced they will be released, but I myself was under the impression that the ATR itself would be released sometime around June. It now looks like that will be pushed back to late summer...perhaps around late July...and that will probably nudge back the video as well. However, I remain optimistic that once the ATR starts making some waves, there will be more people who will want to work with 2845. We can only hope eh? Do not get yourself too depressed though. Cinderkarst said he expected some new screens from his maps to be released very soon and Trajan has emailed me as well to inform me that more eye candy will be forthcoming.
