Jeff Vogel from Spiderweb Software has a blog where he posts his thoughts about video game development from time to time. He's mostly interested in the indie game scene and RPGs, but he covers a lot of ground.

His most recent post was about the process of remaking one of his old games. While his thoughts might be of interest to some of you, I'm mostly just posting this because of one part of his post that stood out to me as a DROD player: He comments on how he had crazier ideas when he was young, and then mentions how one chapter of his game is focused around giant cockroaches as the main enemy.

Having played the original (non-remake) version already, I can confirm that the cockroaches were pretty awesome.

I ran into Jeff Vogel at the Living Computer Museum in Seattle. He was just looking at exhibits like me. I humbly expressed my appreciation for the great RPGs he'd made. And I learned that he was a fan of the DROD games too.

Pretty cool.
