“I think with any kid, if you give them a stick and an ants’ nest,” he tells me, “they all do the same sort of thing. It’s just that, in my case, I never moved on from those 12-year-old feelings – which is pretty disastrous for the rest of my life, but has been great for designing games.”

03 Sep 2k GameSpot UK ECTS Interview
GameSpot UK’s ECTS interview.

“I’m absolutely amazed by the level of interest that Black & White has created. George, an Austrian programmer who is involved with the web side of Black & White, was in the middle of designing some pages about three weeks ago when he had to go away for a couple of days. On his return he looked at the page that he had been working on – which simply had on it the word “believe” and a page counter – and he noticed that the page counter had gone up from two to over 1,000. Someone had managed to find the page even though it was hidden and then passed the information on to the fan sites. To make sure this wasn’t a fluke I told him to construct another page with the word “justice” on and an icon which was the IP address to a secret location that enabled people to watch the team playing Black & White. To my utter astonishment, the page was decoded and to date we have had over 10,000 visitors to the “secret site” which is at www.bwgame.com/window.”
