Yes, I’m in
sunny Melbourne today. Why’s that? I’ll be listening to the guy who designed Planescape: Torment give a talk.
I’ve flown down from Sydney to attend Framework, an industry event where people talk about games. One of the speakers is Chris Avellone, now of Obsidian Entertainment and formerly of Black Isle Studios. He’s worked on games such as Fallout 2, Icewind Dale, Neverwinter Nights 2 and its Mask of the Betrayer expansion, Knights of the Old Republic 2 and of course Planescape: Torment. As the latter is in my top ten games of all time, I’m quite excited to hear what he has to say.
I’ll be writing something up about it when I get back, so stay tuned.
