Ken Williams Interview

Space Venture Interview of Ken Williams is a video of an audio chat with gaming legend Ken Williams. The conversation is intended to support the Two Guys SpaceVenture Kickstarter which is almost 90% funded with 48 hours to go. They discuss Ken and Roberta's retirement as they circumnavigate the globe, and go into the couple's rich contribution to the history of adventure gaming. The audio pops quite a bit, but is pretty clear otherwise. Just hit the bathroom before the link, as the unhurried conversation runs for more than an hour. Thanks nin.

All the text cursor really did was pad the gameplay with frustrating "guess the right word combination" frustration. Most people still just spammed combinations of items on objects in the room until something happened. All moving to a mouse interface did was highlight the fundamental flaw of Sierra adventure games..



Maybe so, the best mouse interface was the one that Lucasarts used on their adventure games being a hybrid between having a text parser of sorts and proper interaction with the environment. Playing "hunt for the magic pixel" with your mouse isn't much fun either.
