Tomorrow I’ll be interviewing the great Seth Robinson, creator of Legend of the Red Dragon (LORD). There’s a good chance you’ve played this game if you were active on the BBS scene back in the 1990s. It was a unique time in the history of videogames, just when “online gaming” was becoming feasible for ordinary computer gamers rather than just college students and professionals. Back then, many people had to pay huge long distance costs in addition to whatever fees the BBS levied. In the meantime, the sysop didn’t want you on for long, since (assuming it was a popular BBS), you’d be clogging up a line and preventing other users from logging in. Games like LORD, which were limited to a few minutes of activity per day, were perfect for the time.
If there’s a question you’d like me to ask Seth, post it below or on Facebook/Twitter/G+.
