Age of Conan: Dev Profile: Funcom's Didrik Tollefsen

StraddenStradden Managing EditorHalifax, NSPosts: 6,696Member

Garrett Fuller had a chance to get to know Funcom's Didrik Tollefsen, the Art Director for Age of Conan.


MMORPG.com:

Tell us a little about your childhood. How did school and where you live influence your choice to join the video game community?

Didrik Tollefsen:


We grew up in a little village on the countryside, surrounded by beautiful, dense forest and wide acres. We loved to play in that forest. We spent a lot of time in there, finding new and magical spots. As we grew older we dared to venture further in to this endless jungle. In to the unknown. I still dream about those places and they can actually still help me in different creative processes during a game production. Later on our little innocent world was invaded by large, grey supercomputers... with 64K of easy-accessible RAM! All the kids in our street had one. So magic took a new form. "Press play on tape" became a big part of our everyday life. Homework had to wait, naturally.

    The Stargate universe offers many planets for viewers to enjoy. How many of these planets can we expect to see in the game? Will the stargate itself be the only form of transportation between worlds?[/quote]

     

    What is this?  Your editor spazzing or what?

    Yea, that totally threw me off.  I wasn't wearing my glasses either, so I had to keep squinting and go back tot eh top to make sure this was really Conan (I have both SG Worlds and AoC in my email alert too, so that didn't help, lol)

    Indeed it seems that one slipped by our editor.  All fixed up!
