Planescape: Torment

Matt Chat 219: Guido Henkel on PS:T

I’m back this week for one last segment with Guido Henkel. After discussing why Guido prefers the second Realms of Arkania, we get into his move to Interplay and his work on Planescape: Torment. We also discuss other projects, including his unreleased superhero MMO.

Sadly, Deathfire did not meet its Kickstarter goal. However, Guido has set up a “Plan B” that you should check out. Don’t forget, too, that you can get Realms of Arkania 1-3 and Planescape: Torment from GOG using my affiliate link . There’s no extra cost to you, but the show gets a kickback!

    Wow, didn’t know he was the dude on the box until this episode! Neat.
    Also interesting to hear he has been up to Edmonton to meetup with Trent Oster; to hammer things out between Interplay and Bioware.

    Best of luck to Guido on Deathfire, the episodic release strategy seems like a good call given the traction the game already has in spite of the failed KS goal.

    My friend Etanos and I do a randomized ‘game of the month’ ritual and for this month Planescape Torment was picked. It has been neat to play the game for the first time while seeing Guido’s new interviews come out here on Matt Chat – as well as your previous videos on the game including the interview with Chris Avellone. Keep up the great work!
