Client: I need you to remove those pixels from the page headline.

Me: What pixels?

Client: The two grey pixels between the “E” and the “T” in the title headline. I can’t understand why you put them there in the first place.

Me: The headline is the company logo on a white background. I can’t see any grey pixels there.

Client: Oh, they disappeared!

Me: Sounds very, very strange… Did you do anything to make them go away?

Client: No, not really. I just moved the browser window. Wait! They’re on my desktop now! How on earth did that happen??

I told the client to dust-wipe his screen. Problem solved.

DISCUSSING INQUISITION AND BEYOND WITH DRAGON AGE’S CREATIVE DIRECTOR by Alex Donaldson , 28 July, 2014

Mike Laidlaw has a damn cool job, but also a rather unenviable task. After working on a selection of Bioware’s offerings prior to Dragon Age, he’s since been placed into the role of creative director - not just for Inquisition, but for the whole franchise. That’s a lot of pressure - especially after fans had a rather vocal response to the more mainstream friendly and arguably good-but-flawed Dragon Age II.

We caught up with Laidlaw as he and his team begin to ramp into final tweaks and launch plans for the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition, and quizzed him about the direction of this latest addition to the series, the longer-term future for the franchise, and even what he thinks of developments in the rest of the world of RPGs. Enjoy.
