Board Game Quest had themselves a little chat with Matt Leacock. They talk about the creative process that he uses and how it’s changed over time, what it’s like to have created a gaming phenomenon such as Pandemic is, what it’s like to work on a licensed product like The Thunderbirds, and his thoughts on Legacy games. Plus, several other things. Go check it out.
From the post:
Recently we had a chance to talk a little with veteran game designer Matt Leacock. You may have heard of a few of his titles: Pandemic, Roll Through the Ages and Forbidden Island. It’s no great leap to say that Matt is quite the accomplished game designer.
With his newest title, Thunderbirds, now in funding on Kickstarter, we figured it’d be a good time to pick his brain about some of his past accomplishments and also his newest offering.
