Warcraft has been a part of my life for so long that it is hard to imagine a world without it. Thousands of hours have been poured into the various franchises and still, I find myself going back for more. There is just something magical about this world of orcs and dwarves, plagued by undead, demons and more.
I sat down with Samwise Didier and Kaeo Milker, two veterans of Blizzard that have been around for much of the time that Warcraft has been kicking around. The developers all seemed so interested in me, even though it was their work and achievements that was really worth discussing. Of course Samwise had jokes too. They have both seen the games cross multiple genres and I was really worried I would make Samwise feel old when I told him after the interview that my school books were covered in his and Metzen’s art. Instead, he asked which images and before I finished he started describing the artwork back to me to see if we were on the same page. (phew)
