This must be one of the most extraordinary interviews ever to be featured on a games site. It’s subject is Vasily Zotov, the creator of bizarre adventure title, Quite Soulless. The topics covered include Zotov’s strange art style, the reason behind his creativity, the status of the mentally ill in Russia, homelessness, the status of immigrants, and Zotov’s troubled move to California. Here’s a sample quote:
I am the different bee, I mean my literacy sucks, anyway I wanted is to create story, and I hate to be an artist (but I am capable of that), the games are my only window to literacy. I wanted to be a writer and was not capable of, may I say my games are not an art but this BRIDGE.
Zotov has a new game out, a free puzzle game called Space Spy, which you can get here.
