EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Frederick Raynal

Hi Guys, me again.

The super observant may have noticed that its March (already!) which means a new edition of emag!!

www.emaggames.co.uk

This month you'll find an interview with Frederick Raynal!

What I would really appreciate is your feedback on the emag games forum. This will kickstart my forum a little, and there is sure to be further LBA exclusive discussion there (the possibility of another LBA interview next month exists...see if you can guess who...).

Thanks!

OMG OMG I LOVE YOU TURTLE

This was fascinating. We should interview Fred more often

I especially liked the fact that his favorite character is Arthur

Very cool.
Nice to see that, yet again, he has simerlar tastes in games to me

hehe, as for LBA3, it seems almost like a "indiana joans" situation.

Dont be too surprised if you get a few hiccups in the small days of each month - its no simple process.

If anyone wants to be a part of emag, or even coordinate future interviews, please email me: [email address] or talk to me on msn!!

Cheers everyone!

I have 50 invitations for gmail now. Oh and nice interview there. Fred seemed really positive this time, in other replys to emails and stuff he sounds a bit annoyed.

This is great. It's nice to know that even if it would never be released, people were working on it.

Cool interview, im wondering if you called him up, or just e-mailed him.

His answers to similar questions as in the past have changed. He now talks about "each time we meet with didier" (in the past they worked together, and adeline has closed) and "we want to make it"(in the past it was more of, we dont have the rights, sorry!)

He also has a new company set up that can work on multiple simultaneous projects, which allows for just that. There are 2 people that need to be fitted into the formula, one of them is didier. The problem now is Didiers old email (the dchanfray one) no longer works, however i was promised his email, and am waiting for that.

Interistingly, it appears freds 2 children are young, but not as young as i thought. Id guess somthing like 10 and 8.

There are some issues but we are talking about LBA3 each time we meet with Didier.
This is the most inspiring sentence from the interview. His talking each time shows how serious he is about making it.

I hate to be like "I told ya" but what was it about lba never being made again?

And it's even nicer to see Fred is still alive.

I mean.. we're hardly in contact with him. I'm not derogate Axx's interviews here, but we should get more interviews, and by more people. We're a large fans community and Fred isn't an holy cow, so we should talk to him some more. I'm sure we won't mind.

Its cool that there are other interviews, ive never been against that, just so long as we talk about what we each do, so that our questions arnt repetetive.

I am very focused on subjects such as LBA3 and Triumplaneta, freds new company, his projects, his ideas for the future, but Chaos you know i am working on somthing, so ill just have to keep it quite untill the summer. If i do decide to contact him about his new company, it will be when i have talked with others who are either assosiates of him, or know him, so that i can prepare my questions accordingly.

- turtle: For the next number of your magazine, I think you should interview Didier Chanfray. I suggest you ask him the same questions (I'm referring to the MBN Members section of the questions), as you asked Fred, so to compare the answers. What do you think?

Thanks for your suggestion, but it wont be that easy since he appears to have changed his email address. I have other (non LBA) ideas for Exlusives in the future, but I am still looking for more LBA stuff because its a favourite game of mine.

I emailed him.

I think he would mind in some ways. He seemed very happy to help me, but he knew it was in the name of journalism and the media - what he says gets out to a whole load of his fans in one go. If everyone started just emailing him with personal questions, requests for LBA3 or just other random stuff, I think it would annoy him (it would annoy me!) - hence the reason that his email address is pretty hard to get.

By all means, If you want to ask for an inteview you should have that right, but people should be careful about pestering people for information - especially about LBA3.

Thanks for all your support guys.

Hence the reason I dont give out his e-mail, I dont believe he would appreciate it i think i will ask him one day if he dosnt mind me posting his work e-mail (i usually email him on his personal e-mail), none the less its nice for Fred to hear from new people. He actually does. sometimes i email him on behalf others who are not from the MBN, (there is a french fan site that i once got an e-mail from one of its members), also sometimes it is publishers (the creative director, and boss at one russian publisher emailed me, he also promised me to look into Poket Castle!.) Ofcourse once his company is really up and running, and has its website online, then everyone will and can e-mail him.

As for Didier, it would be nice to first discover where it is he works, do some research, then send him an e-mail, and it has to be in French. His english is terrible :P

Great interview turtle, good to know LBA3 is still very much at the forefront of Fred's mind and that he would want to bring together the core members of the old team for any new LBA game.

I like how you managed to plug MBN as well
