Conversations With Curtis – Aric Wilmunder, Mickey McMullen and Courtney Jones interviews

catching up with curtis teaser

June 3, 2023

Another week, another set of in-depth video interviews from Adventure Game Hotspot Network partner Conversations with Curtis! First up, Daniel Albu talks with Lucasfilm Games / LucasArts legend Aric Wilmunder, the co-creator of the SCUMM engine and unsung hero of the company’s early adventure games. Over a monster four-plus-hour chat, Aric shares some fun stories from the development of Maniac Mansion, Zak Mckracken and much more. 

Check it out here:



If that’s not enough historical adventure gaming goodness, Paul Morgan Stetler joins Daniel as together they revisit the days of Phantasmagoria: A Puzzle of Flesh in their talk with Mickey McMullen and Courtney Jones, former sound mixer / boom operators and key grip. They rehash the filming of the game (in which Paul himself starred as Curtis Craig, of course) and what has become of everyone since the game. Spoiler: They have all gone on to great success.

If you are a Phantasmagoria 2 fan, you will not want to miss this nostalgic video:



The Adventure Game Hotspot Network is a collective of talented, dedicated video producers who work entirely independently but have joined forces to promote each other’s efforts.
