Hello Mr. Williams! I heard of your book through fellow fans and it just came in this past Friday. Im almost done. Excellent read and I cant thank you enough for authoring it.
Just found this forum. Off the top of my head I have two questions:
Of all the developers at Sierra how did you become so close with Mr. Al Lowe? In reading the part about working with friends and family (dont do it) it appears you and Mr. Lowe were definitely an exception. It appears you were able to get along through the existence of Sierra and remain good friends today without major incidents between employee and boss eventually causing an issue. Reading above comments it was great for me to hear you two are still in contact to this day. What do you believe was the secret? As someone who manages as well this greatly interests me.
2. It wasnt clear (or maybe I just forgot this detail) if you developed/wrote the AGI language used for KQ1 and up? I do remember reading how you wrote the code for the early graphical high res adventures allowing Roberta to fill in the database and draw the pictures. Even wikipedia has unknown for the authors of AGI.
Ok those are my first two questions at this moment. Sorry for any spelling or grammar issues as Im typing this on my Iphone at the moment. Thank you!
