Hi all,

talesofmi.net blogged a fantastic IncGamers interview with Dave Grossman. It's too good to miss!

Grossman makes some very interesting comments on the episodic format and the integration of feedback (apparently they gave Winslow some extra little appearances after he met with a positive fan response).

Well worth a read!

    I think that would have been an interesting experiment, but I'm not complaining.

    Just thought I'd quote the part you're talking about...
    Interview said:

    How much does the criticism, both from fans and journalists, actually impact the development in the middle of the series?

    More than you might expect, given how far ahead we tend to be working. We read the forums and we listen to the fans and we do whatever we can to respond to what they say, and sometimes it's big things, like we change direction on elements, and sometimes it's more peripheral things, like... there was a character, Reginald van Winslow, who was introduced in Monkey as a minor character and fan response to him was good, so he's kind of gotten more screen time than he would have otherwise. “Hey, let's make a little part for Winslow in this one!” when he wasn't going to be there before.
    I wonder what the coming announcement will be? Evidently we'll find out soon!
  • Sam and Max Season Three. I can't think of any other thing that makes sense.
  • I can think of a lot of things... But S&M:3 would tickle me pink.
  • Very nice interview. However, the guy who wrote the interview up mixed up the words "serious" and "series" in the following passage:
    One of the things I note about it is that although Monkey is really funny on the surface, the underlying stories are usually kind of series
  • Maybe they got to use another one of LucasArts adventure games...

    Hopes for Maniac Mansion 3 :D
