Interview with Alejandro Jodorowsky

Here is an interview with Alejandro Jodorowsky from 1999. It’s fascinating – it helps if you like his work I guess. The Incal, written by Jodorowsky and illustrated by Jean ‘Moebius’ Giraud is one of my favorite comics. I am sad that I will be in Paris but not at the right time to catch one of Jodorowsky’s lectures / psychoanalysis sessions.

(Please ignore the SHOUTING INTERVIEWER.)

He even has some things to say about games. Nothing mind-blowing, but interesting nevertheless:

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN DESIGNING VIDEO GAMES YOURSELF?
Yes. Last year I did in L.A. They’re doing that now. I went there and
proposed, I say, Listen, I want to make this type of story, are you
interested? They said, Yes, sure. I made two games of, and I am making a
game of the Meta-Baron, then they are doing. I think, “There is a new
artform.” Very interesting.

I don’t think that game ever came out. Pity.
