Midlife Gamer Podcast Special – MLG Meets Richard Garriott

Ultima. Arguably the most important Role Playing Game series ever made, its initial release from Origin Systems in 1981 is widely regarded as one of the very first commercially available RPGs. The leaps in technology, game design and visual presentation that the series would come to see has been crucial in the development of the dice rolling genre and the DNA of the series is still evident in the biggest names of modern gaming. After all, no Ultima Online: no World of Warcraft.

Richard Garriott – referred to fondly by fans as Lord British – is the series' creator and Midlife Gamer secured a rare opportunity to speak with the great man himself, who talks to us about his upbringing and first commercial computer game, his time with Ultima including his interaction with players as Lord British, his experience of life on the International Space Station and what the future holds with Portalarium. (PC, Retro, Richard Garriott, Tabula Rasa, Ultima Online)
