Tim SchaferWhile Brutal Legend designer Tim Schafer has been doing a lot of interviews on video and such around E3, the vast majority have pretty much echoed each other and not really revealed anything new — thus simply ended up in the Community Tracker.

However, game developer favourite GamesIndustry.biz has conducted a superb interview with Schafer that goes into touches upon quite a lot of subjects. For example, Schafer talks about Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister:

“He was really quiet at first. We hung out for a while, then he just totally opened up and turned out to be a big enthusiast. He collects swords and knives, and we talked about medieval battles. I got to hang out with him a little bit, and he plays videogames. He really likes StarFox.”

Later in the interview, he talks about his past creations such as Monkey Island and Grim Fandango:

“When I talk to someone about Grim Fandango, I ask did you finish it? And they say no, and then I go, you got stuck in the forest, right? Because everyone gets stuck in the forest, with the signpost.”

Go right ahead and read the three-page interview.

@Coggs: what’s that gotta do with Lemmy Kilmister?
Anyway… I think it’s poetic justice that the Killmaster collects heavy metal sharp things!!
