Interview: BioWare co-founder talks about launching Beamdog and MDK2 HD

Trent Oster was one of the first people who worked at BioWare when it first started and with the exception of a year off from the company he worked at BioWare until his departure back in 2009. While at BioWare he worked on a number of games including leading the development of Neverwinter Nights. Now Oster has launched a new company called IdeaSpark Labs that has already spawned a couple of projects.

One is MDK2 HD, an upcoming downloadable graphical revamp of BioWare's action game that was originally released in 2000 by Interplay. The other is Beamdog, a newly launched PC game download service. In his first interview since the MDK2 HD announcement, Oster talks about his early plans for the game, how Beamdog will be different than other PC game download operations and more.
