VIDEO: JASON ROHRER, CHRIS CRAWFORD GO INTO THE NIGHT
Another link I’ve probably sat on for a bit too long, but present here for the remaining few: arts program Durch die Nacht mit (Into the Night with) — who are responsible for pairing off and filming a number of unlikely/excellently matched sets of creators like Run Lola’s Franka Potente and John Carpenter or Miranda July and David Shrigley (do need video of that, please) — were at GDC this year to catch a meeting between Passage/Between creator Jason Rohrer and games design veteran Chris Crawford.
While the video above only captures the first moments of their introduction (and sees Crawford perhaps the most delightfully gracious and still cheerfully cantankerous as I’ve seen him in a while), blogger Bruno De Figueiredo has the rest of the episode available on his dieubussy blog, which, he says, sees Rohrer and Crawford “wander about the city, engaging in a rather deep albeit contagious dialogue about the root of video games and the process of their creation.”
Bonus points for spotting Jottobots/Snapshot creator Kyle Pulver‘s background cameo near the end of the clip.
