Where Does the Time Go?

So it’s been over a year since the last post. Well it’s been a busy year, but possibly the most relevant part is that I’ve been helping CNN out with a documentary. It’s a series of short pieces about games history and one of them — of course — is about DMA Design. Specifically the 20th anniversary of the release of Grand Theft Auto in October 1997.
A handful of us were interviewed over the course of a week back in May this year.

So for my interview we were on top of Dundee Law — the extinct volcano in the heart of Dundee — in bright sunshine. I talked for most of an hour and managed to get sunburn in Scotland. Not only that I somehow managed to become the default presenter for the day. That morning, as they drove me around, I pointed out parts of local history and the buildings where DMA made their games. All the while they filmed me.
It’s quite an experience being on one side of the road, seemingly talking to myself, when the camera was on the other side.
