Post Jonas Weaver of TNM on Silver Spook Podcast
Hey guys, had a great chat with Jonas. This may be of interest. :)

Image

"Silver Spook (Christian Miller) talks with Jonas Waever, the Chief Creative Officer of The Nameless Mod, the most epic and well-known Deus Ex total conversion mod of all time. Two veteran Deus Ex modders discuss why Deus Ex 1 still shows up in lists of "top 10 games ever", the historical context of the title, and what an indie cyberpunk FPS-RPG hybrid on par with Deus Ex 1 might look like. (Full disclosure: Silver Spook is currently working on an un-announced Deus Ex 1-like game.)

Other topics include a retrospective on The Nameless Mod by it's director, Terminus Machina (Silver Spook's Deus Ex total conversion), the nature of conspiracy in Deus Ex and how things have changed, takes on Blade Runner/BR 2049, Neuromancer versus Snow Crash, why single player narrative games aren't dead, and games industry shop-talk from two commercial indie game developers."

Jonas, should this podcast be added to the TNM In The Media thread?

Damn, almost 2 hours... Tl;DR!

(*cough* By which I mean bookmarked for when I actually got time to listen to that all...)

Regarding the whole human robot thing, you might want to play Binary Domain a bit more. Seems you dropped it pretty early on, and I can't fully disagree (I hate cover based shooters), but you might want to stick with it... it's pretty awesome, and the story goes pretty deep. And it has a nice correlation to the what was talked about in the interview ;)

I bounced off Binary Domain so hard though. I doubt I'll ever come back to it.

Hooley Melk™! Thank you Jonas and SilverSpook.

Listening to both of you was so delightful. I found your comments on Deus Ex and the current videogame industry very insightful.

You know what I call what both of you just did? I've just coined it: Warren-Spectoring! :mrgreen:

That is: I was litterally drinking your every word. I'll listen to this great podcast again sometime. Now a few remarks:

1- You know SilverSpook maybe you're on to something with these podcasts. I humbly encourage you to keep on doing these, maybe interviewing other interesting developers, or something,

2- Could you make these podcasts (like your 4 HOURS Marathon Terminus Machina Podcast ^^) available in mp3 form?
