Discworld Noir Interview

dvn-fp2__bigOver at Adventure Gamers is a new interview with me talking about my first game as lead writer and designer, Discworld Noir. Here’s an extract:

Pretty sure every character in Noir that wasn't borrowed from the books (like Vimes, Gaspode, Death etc.) was invented by me. The one exception was Laredo Cronk, which was created by me at Terry's request. He loved Tomb Raider and wanted a Discworld pastiche of Lara, and I was happy to oblige! I had some fights with him about the names, but he had given me a broad licence to make a new cast for this one, owing to the concept being so original. I guess that makes me the only person other than Terry to have made Discworld characters... Hadn't really considered that before!

Discworld is one the all-time fantasy classics! I can't believe I didn't know there was a videogame about it! After reading that interview I have to find a way to play that game ahah

Dear The Canadian Fantasy Writer,
You should be able to get a copy of Discworld Noir for PC with some digging, although running it can be a challenge. Here's the best guide we've been able to put together for the PC version:

Also, is there really only one fantasy writer in Canada? Or are you, perhaps, a periodical of some kind? :)
All the best,
Chris.
