Played this a good chunk when Sierra decided to offer it free on their website, way back in the late 90s I believe. Good stuff.

There is a great interview of scenario designer / writer Neal Hallford on The Retro Hour podcast: https://theretrohour.com/classic-rpg-neal-hallford-ep291/

For example it’s fascinating to hear about the writing process (with author of the fantasy series Raymond E. Feist) and it’s placement in Sierra’s publishing schedule. The floppy version didn’t do that great, but the CD version was just at the right time. But then the team was split up before the CD sales came in. And Sierra started pushing for the sequel with the team already gone. Good stuff, just like the game itself.
