Interview of Meinolf Schneider / Amekudzi at moodway

Posted by on February 14, 2015

I just found this relatively recent interview with the father of Bolo, Esprit, Oxyd and other Dongleware games:

http://www.moodway.de/interview-meinolf-schneider-amekudzi/ (german)

Among others he talks about the old “Atari ST” times, when games where not a big market yet and that he was propably in the wrong time at the right place. Though he also thinks positively about these times, that he actually made a difference with his games. To which I absolutely agree!

He also likes projects that continue his ideas, like Enigma and this little javascript clone of the Bolo Atari version I didn’t know yet.
That’s great to hear as there are many stories from developers of remakes who got troubled by the original game developers/publishers even decades after these games were sold.
