Interview: CCP Unifex

 

After almost being thrown out of the Islenski bar in Iceland on the first night of Fanfest with CCP Unifex because of a (heated) discussion on everything Eve, I made him promise that he would come on the show so we could discuss his tenure as Executive Producer. Now that he has almost finished that job to move to CCP’s new mobile division and we are suitable recovered from the Icelandic deathflu(TM), Unifex joins me here on Crossing Zebras.

We ended up squeezing a great deal of stuff into 45 minutes including whether he was hesitant to take on the Executive Producer position in the first place, what he hopes to achieve with the Eve universe in the new mobile edition, how CSM7 worked from his perspective and that amazing Eve keynote at Fanfest.

I want to thank Unifex not only for coming on the podcast but also for being so open and frank with his answers to my questions. It’s a pretty illuminating interview.

Fly safe,

Xander

About the author

Xander Phoena

The good looking, funny, intelligent member of the team, Xander set up Crossing Zebras with Jeg in April 2012 mainly because he was talking too much about Eve on his other podcast. Playing the game for almost five years, Xander still has absolutely zero clue about how to actually play Eve but somehow still manages to talk a good game.

    Excellent Interview Xander, 10 points to Zebras.

    Found it interesting with hindsight that Unifex was struggling to think of an example of dumbing the game down.

    Thought the new probe mechanics would be a great example of that… 😛

    Though admittedly He was looking for an example of how that would make the game worse, and I’m not of the opinion that the new mechanics did that.

    Well done, Keep up the sterling work Gents!
