Interview with Eve Online Creator Reynir Harðarson
It's like chatting with the architect.
Rock, Paper, Shotgun recently scored some face time with the original mastermind behind EVE Online.
Reynir Harðarson, (pronounced Hardarson or Hartharson? the jury is out) who was one of the key imaginations behind Eve Online and the original art director, is now working on the World Of Darkness MMO in Atlanta. He talks quietly and rapidly, making transcribing and interview like this one (conducted in a noisy conference hall) incredible painful. Nevertheless its worth doing because he is articulate and incredibly astute, and I think this brief conversation captures a fragment of that. It staggers me each day that his work, and the work of CCP as a whole, gets ignored and over-looked by the industry.
See what interesting things he had to say at Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
