Lorne Lanning, president and co-founder of Oddworld Inhabitants, appeared in a 2-part interview with EGM editors on their weekly podcast, EGM Live. This week the second part of the interview aired and it’s worth a listen. Lorne kind of goes off and starts claiming that there’s no link to Osama Bin Laden and 9/11 and claiming that conspiracies exist here and there; and that somehow this plays into the reason why his games have failed in recent years. The whole thing sounded like a guy that is looking for more excuses why his games have struggled to sell lately. Beyond the conspiracy theories you can hear him go off and whine about game types that are popular. Non-gamers, terrorists, Britney Spears fan club members, and more are all a part of Lorne’s ramblings.
Hey Lorne, Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath didn’t sell because EA didn’t promote it. End of story. Either make a good game worth playing sometime soon or shut your hole.
