NWN2 News was able to track down Obsidian's Annie Carlson for a lengthy Q&A about her past game development experience, custom Neverwinter Nights 2 content, and more.
Q: If you could re-do any past CRPG with todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s technology which game would that be and why?
A: The Eye of the Beholder series, no question: I played Eye of the Beholder II a preposterous amount with my friends and my older brother Ã¢â‚¬( and when I found out that a group is actually doing a NWN2 mod of it, I shrieked with glee and emailed them instantly expressing my joy at the prospect. Second to that, I might enjoy an update of the super-obsure game Phantasie, which I spent a great deal of my childhood playing and seriously, I honestly had gotten to the point of thinking IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d lost touch with it entirely and that I could not possibly ever locate it again until I found it on MobyGames. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even know if itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s worth remaking anymore, but man, I had fun with it.
