    Mike Hoge talks about the Gothic series

    Mike Hoge is one of four co-founders of Piranha Bytes and the only one who still works in the team. We asked him a few things about the first parts of the series and Mike was so kind to send us his answers.

    Read the interview on our site: http://www.gothicz.net/serie-gothic/...-about-gothic/

    Many thanks for letting us know about the interview!
    I made a news out of it for the WoG frontpage and provided a link to your site.

    Mike: We get the rights to Gothic back when we have finished Risen 2. Why? Because we did only sell them to our ex-publisher for a certain amount of time

    Wise move.

    What're they going to do? Make a Gothic 5? Don't think so, 4 was too bad. Nobody's ever going to buy a Gothic again. Plus he wants to move away from fantasy.

    Gothicz.net: Could you please make clear the connection between the Undead dragon from G2 and the Nameless hero?

    Mike: The Nameless Hero is the Avatar of Adanos. The Undead Dragon is the Avatar of Beliar, carrying the "energy" of the sleeper
    So we were right.

    At least Gothic will finally be able to rest in peace.

    About the development cost. Gothic 1 cost several millions and brought back only a few of them. With Gothic 2 we got that money back and achieved our break-even. With the addon, we actually started to make a bit of money.
    That made me a bit sad.They deserved better than that.

    The guy actually resembles NH. Never knew that before.
    Great interview anyway and a nice ending question

    Well, if he were an avatar of Innos, why would Beliar ever allow HIM to wield the Claw of Beliar?

    Yes, it's somewhat explained in Gothic 3. Can you say retcon?

    After all, why would Orkish prophecies mention how some dude will banish a single spawn of Beliar but fail to mention how the same dude will later slay a number of them evil spawns and concoct dragonish syrup out of their hearts. Or what about his later life as a freelance mercenary and double agent, during which he spent his free time banishing gods?

    Oh bull.

    Hardcore fans know Gothic 4 was not made by PB, and first-time players pretty much enjoyed Arcania & do not know who PB or SB or [letter-here]B are. It's a win-win situation.

    They should do a prequel to gothic. Nameless heros and rhobars and lees and... past connected by a new character.

    That was a nice reading. Well in my opinion Gothic is allready too messed up by Arcania BUT what I would like to see Pyranhas to do a remake of Gothic I and to do all those features that were intended. That would be great...
