Matt Chat 256: Feargus Urquhart on the Fall of Black Isle

Feargus returns in part 3 of my 4 part interview. In this segment, we talk about the collapse of Black Isle in the wake of some questionable decisions on the part of Fargo and other execs–Interplay Sports, Engage, losing the D&D license, and some bad bets on consoles (Sega Saturn, anyone?). Despite the passage of time, Feargus is still quite emotional, and you can’t help but wonder what might have happened if the leadership had listened to him.

Games covered include Planescape: Torment, Fallout 3, Baldur’s Gate III, and Icewind Dale.
