Subject: So I finally found the creator of The Wrath of Denethenor :)
Hello! As a young boy I remember your game for the Apple II. My best
friend and I grew up on roleplaying games like Ultima and were QUITE intimidated by your game. Anyhow, I just wanted to write you tell you what a wonderful game it was. In addition, I see that you are missing from MobyGames.com credit list. You should take some time and fill out the credit for the game (they are quite helpful if their website is confusing).
Just thought I would pass on a note and express my gratitude! Now that I have been in the game industry for a couple of years, I at least owe a note of thanks to those who helped influence my path.
Thanks for writing. It’s great to hear that you enjoyed the Wrath. I hope you’re enjoying your involvement in the game industry — not a direction I went in, but I do enjoy the gems that come out… like the new Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and of course my friends and I are all eagerly awaiting Halo 2.
Good luck to you and thanks again!
Thanks for writing back! We are also looking forward to the games you mentioned (when we actually feel like playing games… it’s like working in a pizza joint, after a while you REALLY don’t want to eat pizza ;) ).
I hope you don’t mind if I ask you a question here and there about your development of TWoD – you see, modern game development has really lost touch with its roots, IMHO.
Thanks!!! And keep Filemaker Pro running – we use it QUITE a lot here!
