Default YES, an interview with...

...whomever you suggest. We need at least one interview for the mag, and nothing is planned yet, noone has been contacted. I was thinking about Joe Hitchens, founder of Sleepless Software, has worked on various projects before that including Zone 66, Jill of the Jungle series etc.

Should be some big name we haven't heard about for years. But Hitchens would be fine, never heard about him before. How about Ron Gilbert, Al Lowe, David Braben...? Plus we should ask Lulu to look around the rings if she can find someone we need.

Big names are hard to convince to answer to an almost unknown magazine. They might be even against associating with something abandonware related, in the first place.

Unknown... why don't we show it in their faces with facebook, twitter and whatnot? We could also make a YT ad for the zine...

A suggestion: how about the two guys from Andromeda, creators of Space Quest, Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe?

They're looking for all the exposure they can get, as they'll be announcing a new game soon.

I don't know about that. God knows when we'll be able to release the new issue. By that time, they might not be interested anymore. But I'll keep the option in mind.

The two guys seems like a good bet actually.

Also, Christie Marx is around our fb occasionally, but she's working on new projects and probably an ab thing would not be wise for her.

Oh, also, Ben Crowshaw (Yahtzee of ZP fame) was interviewed for the site eons ago, it might be worth recontacting him.

Considering he's doing let's plays of abandonware games now (most recently, Dreamweb) it would be good to get another interview, I think.
I once had a brief chat with the maker of Azrael's Tear back when I was looking for it. Don't know if he'd be worth contacting.
If we could contact someone involved in Neverhood that would be pants-wettingly amazing.

We have the internet at our service, with facebook and google. What else do we need? Time, and balls, mostly.
