After one failed attempt, Calvin was nice enough to step online again to converse with us and, unfortunately, we had some technical issues with connections and audio quality. While not unlistenable, there are noticeable breaks and cracks. I’ve done my best to fix the audio up to a standard I feel comfortable releasing and hope you enjoy our chat. -P

Calvin French has been making games for awhile but this past year released The Real Texas to surprisingly receptive critical attention from sites such as Giant Bomb and Destructoid. With The Real Texas boasting the description of a mashup of Zelda: Link to the Past and Ultima VI, there is little surprise to find that Calvin has a particular respect and appreciation for very specific games from his childhood. We talk about what makes a good game, inspirations and the qualities of explosive trucks.
