Episode 11 – Interview with Al Lowe

Interview with Al Lowe (May 27, 2006)

At E3 Jenn got a few minutes to chat with Al Lowe. Most of you might know him from a little series called ‘Leisure Suit Larry’… except for the last one. He had nothing to do with that. Al talks about his new game development venture, iBase Entertainment, good ol’ Larry, a very strange path to becoming a game designer, and the state of the industry today. A cramped restaurant booth may not be a scenic interview spot but the conversation was definitely worthwhile. (11:33)

Just to head off a few e-mails: I know that I’m not visibly in this one. Crowded restaurant booth at E3 + small table + no camera man = the best I could do with a tripod that wasn’t going to get kicked over by the throngs of people. Huge awesome special thanks to Darren Kitchen from Hak.5 for editing job and Ashley Witt for the new OpenAlpha theme!
