Interview with Rick Gush - Writing for Westwood Studios

quote [ After the second titles in both Kyrandia and Lands of Lore there was a big big push for us to start using 3D art and that was a tough time. Westwood had all these 2D artists and I had to go tell them to go learn 3D Studio. Some of them did a good job in trying to adapt to the changing times, while others didn?t. It was a time of flux. ]

Interesting interview about writing and producing games in the 90s, including anecdotes about the Virgin-Westwood relation and the upbringing of some of the game concepts.

Beastly Clues: T. S. Eliot, Torquemada, and the Modernist Crossword

quote [ Just a few years after The Waste Land appeared ? a poem whose difficulty critics compared to some ?pompous cross-word puzzle? ? Edward Powys Mathers (alias: Torquemada) pioneered the cryptic: a puzzle form that, like modernist poetry, unwove language and rewove it anew. Roddy Howland Jackson reveals the pleasures and imaginative creatures lurking in Torquemada's lively grids. ]

''moon''

quote [ The legendary anti-RPG ''moon'' is now available as a port under the complete supervision of the staff of the original version. RPGs without battles, NPCs with their own time-based behaviour patterns, and an MD system that lets you play your favorite music. ]

This is an interesting project from 18 years ago, recently ported and revived. It's, amongst others, an inspiration for Undertale.

Hardcoregaming 101 has an extensive piece on the untranslated original.

And here's a recent announcement for the PC version with several links.
