Loot Drop Kickstarter Interview

An interview on Gamasutra talks with Tom Hall and Brenda Brathwaite of Loot Drop about their just-announced Kickstarter for an "old school RPG." They discuss their goal of melding traditional elements like character development and investment with modern elements like advanced graphics. There's also a discussion of how the pair will be developing two different parts of the same game world, which explains why one of the Kickstarter's stretch goals is two separate games. Here's a bit on that:

Brathwaite and Hall have conceived of the game as having two distinct worlds part of the same universe and the same timeline, where one of them is fundamentally Brathwaite's and the other's is Hall's, with a bridge connecting the two.

Hall's second world is viewed as something of a sequel if the game's stretch funding goals are met. But ultimately the pair will collaborate on all aspects of development, and in Hall, Brathwaite has the ideal complement to her RPG values.

Uhhh.. who exactly do you think I think I am, and who is this "we" that you speak of? Paranoid much?

Cool story, bro.

I have a question: Do you really, seriously think that I am either John Romero, Tom Hall or Brenda Brathwaite? I don't care if you're trolling, I'm actually just legit curious if you believe this.
I was accused of being Tom or Brenda, too. I guess anyone who supports this KS or defends them MUST BE THEM!! Freak

Well, to be fair Zanerat1, your account was created today and you jumped right in on the attack. Being suspicious is pretty understandable. Madguy on the other hand has been around for some time and his posts are consistent. You may find it strange, but this site has a history with people pulling this shit, so folks are naturally a bit suspicious.

When names I don't recognize are unusually aggressive/defensive and their account is brand new it naturally seems like one of two things is going on. Either they have a pretty large ego to go after people they hardly know anything about, or they have a vested interest in the topic. Of course there are any number of other explanations, like alt trolling accounts, but I am sure you can see that it is completely reasonable to hold those two as the most likely. You'll notice that Cutter isn't accusing "noman" of being one of them...for example...despite his positive view on the KS.
