The official Brutal Legend site has just updated with word of a video interview with Tim Schafer. Unfortunately the video doesn’t seem to be working at the moment, although there may be some crazy region locking or something going on.
Whatever the case, the video supposedly features a general chat with Tim about four-and-a-half minutes in, discussing things such as programming in the Amiga days. But more interestingly, Jace claims to “take a first look at the newest [Brutal Legend] build”, which might mean we get to see some brand new gameplay footage.
By all means try the video and leave a comment if you can get it to play!

I got in touch with Jace and he recommends using UltraSurf, which I successfully did. It takes seconds to install and works out the box, routing your web traffic through one of their US servers — give it a go if you want to see the footage.
[April 19th, 2009 at 6:47pm GMT+1] I’ve taken screenshots of the new things shown in the video, such as a bum-headed creature and the wall of amps. The quality is pretty much the best I can get as there really isn’t much shown, and whatever there is was taken with a handheld camcorder. Still, check them out.
