Fresh from his comprehensive roguelike series over at the Rampant Coyote, Skavenhorde chats with Laurens Lafebre - the indie developer behind the Dark Disciples series:
Read it all here.Let's start the ball rolling with some background on you and your company Dodgysoft. How did it all start?
When I was a kid, my parents came home one day with a c64 and my life-long love of computer games began. I also used to play Dungeons & Dragons (the pen & paper game) with friends so naturally CRPGs were of particular interest. I think my first ever CRPG experience was a ‘Dark Dungeons’. Anyone remember that? J I decided pretty early on that I wanted to write my own CRPG game and learnt some basic programming on the c64. I discovered Dark Dungeons was written in basic and poured over the code for clues on how to program games. I eventually went on to study business programming at Uni and always secretly hoped I’d somehow find my way into a games development / programming career. When that didn’t happen, I decided to write my game own anyway.
