x.jpg Over at the Adventure Classic Gaming site, they've interviewed AWE Production's Scott Nixon on creating recent PC adventure games Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None and Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express.

Nixon, who recently wrote a Gamasutra article entitled 'Bring Out Your Dead! Can Nintendo Breathe New Life into Adventure Games?', is the definition of an adventure game developer, having worked on graphic adventures for a fair few years now, and is obviously enthusiastic about the material, talking here about the use of David Suchet as the voice of Hercule Poirot in Murder on the Orient Express:

"Everyone involved in the project had that question at the forefront of their minds from the word go. Suchet has become so intertwined with Poirot that it is, at this point, hard to imagine someone else taking over without being constantly compared to him. It was a Catch-22, because you worry about someone coming in and doing a Suchet impression instead of a unique rendition of Poirot, yet the more the voice strays from Suchet’s version, the more people will wish it was Suchet doing it! Mike Adams (Producer at The Adventure Company) was very keen on getting Suchet on board and really worked at it."
