Episode 47: Kevin Van Ord (Baldur's Gate 3, Divinity Original Sin 2)

From Writing About Games To Writing For Them

The love of games for Kevin Van Ord fluctuated a bit through his early years with the medium, but when stuck in a career he didn't enjoy and the boom of games media on the internet began to take off, opportunities emerged. Since then Kevin hasn't looked back and has gone on to be one of the most renowned and beloved faces of Gamespot, and more recently has made the jump into game development. Kevin talks to Paul in this latest entry of Dev Diary and discusses the early years, the opportunity with Gamespot that changed everything and then the move overseas to join Larian Studios. This isn't to be missed!
