Making RPG's That Stand the Test of Time


Brian Fargo has been playing and making RPG games since the 1980's and is still making games to this day. He will look back over 3 decades of RPG games that began with the Bard's Tale and Wasteland and eventually onto such hits as Stonekeep, Fallout, Baldur's Gate, and Icewind Dale and most recently with Hunted: The Demon's Forge. Mr. Fargo will discuss his history with Role-playing games and how he approaches each aspect of the game creation. Topics to include storyline, character development, balance and production philosophy. What are the elements you need to make an immersive game that will stand the test of time and have people say "I spent hours playing your game when I was a kid and loved it."
