Interview with Chris Avellone about Ps:T

Chris: I think the Infinity Engine's big strengths for Torment were (1) the Herculean Bioware Infinity editor that was actually able to translate 2nd Edition AD&D into a format that a computer could recognize, and (2) the other huge advantage was that you could paint the backgrounds, which for Planescape was pretty essential since the "architecture" was so insane that doing a polygon-based world filled with that many jagged edges and points and pregnant allies and all those bizarre-o structures would make many CPUs weep tears of silicon blood.

I would rather have Chris in charge of our days and our nights,

Chris in Charge of our wrongs and our rights!

And I sing, I want, I want Chris in Charge of me.

I have to agree with Volourn.  Bioware is pretty much dead now.  Deals like this kills development studios.

Ahem, thanks for linking to the article, but as our resident forum matriarch already pointed out, it's old news.

It has made me the man I am today. A man who craves furry hentai.
