During the recent Macworld 2011 event I got a chance to sit down and talk with the creator of the original Fargoal title from the early 80s, and collaborator on the iOS sequels, Jeff McCord, who is also a member of the Trouble Brothers development studio — along with Fargoal LLC — that makes games for the iDevices like the innovative multiplayer puzzle-board game Wizard Hex; which was featured on the App Store in the “New and Noteworthy” and “What’s Hot” categories. As promised, I will reveal new information in this interview about the upcoming sequel to the critically acclaimed retro remakes for the iDevices that were Sword of Fargoal and Sword of Fargoal Legends.

Having developed games for the Commodore C64 in 1983, Jeff McCord and his fellow colleagues at Fargoal, LLC would have never imagined their original creation “Sword for Fargoal” would eventually make it from an old school 8 bit gaming platform to a dominating player in the market- the iPhone. I sat down with Jeff this week to discuss his experiences in gaming with the iPhone and iPad as well as his partnership with Chillingo.
