Saw this today while walking with Leah, a stark white tree.
UT hosted a gathering for the upcoming Video Games Archive. Lots of fun, hanging out with people I used to work with, 6, 10, 14 years ago.
These might be the worst pictures I’ve ever taken. Shown here are Richard Garriot, Warren Spector and Rich Vogel.
We drank too much and had a great time. UT is collecting up video game materials for the archive. At the event, people brought stuff like design docs from 15 years ago (that became games like Wing Commander), marketing materials and music from very old games. Lord British brough a roll of yellowing teletype paper from his first game, pre Akalabeth.
Our game is coming together here in Austin. It’s hard work, but I love it. This MTV interview is based on a recent conversation.
