NLSC Podcast: Interview with Darren Schueller


Rod Reddekopp was kind enough to put me in touch with some other developers from the early days of NBA Live, so I'll hopefully be able to bring you some more interviews about those classic games. The latest interview is with Darren Schueller, a programmer on the series from NBA Live 97-2001 who was responsible for implementing DBF files.

Our 25th Anniversary of NBA Live celebrations continue with another developer interview! Former NBA Live programmer Darren Schueller joins the show to chat about his time working on the game from NBA Live 97-2001. As the man behind implementing DBF files in the PC version of NBA Live, Darren explains how that development came about, and the details may surprise you! We also talk about his work on the user interface throughout the years, as well as the hidden developer teams and other Easter eggs. Darren also shares anecdotes about how he got into the industry, pranks and other amusing moments during his tenure at EA Canada (including his Need for Speed cameos), and some of his favourite games.

Tune in here!
