Drakensang: The Dark Eye Developer Diary #3

Drakensang.info has posted a third developer diary for Radon Labs' Drakensang: The Dark Eye, once again penned by creative director Bernd Beyreuther. This time around, Bernd talks about how the Drakensang project came to be:
When our title Project Nomads won the Best PC game award on the ECTS 2001 in London, we got the opportunity to get in touch with the TDE license holders. Surprisingly the dream could come true the license was available. We decided to take the opportunity. The work on the project began and we knew that this would take months and years to be accomplished. But at least I can now tell my mother that all the nights I spent playing games were beneficial after all.
