During the recent Macworld 2011 event I got a chance to sit down and talk with the creator of the original Fargoal title from the early 80s, and collaborator on the iOS sequels, Jeff McCord, who is also a member of the Trouble Brothers development studio — along with Fargoal LLC — that makes games for the iDevices like the innovative multiplayer puzzle-board game Wizard Hex; which was featured on the App Store in the “New and Noteworthy” and “What’s Hot” categories. As promised, I will reveal new information in this interview about the upcoming sequel to the critically acclaimed retro remakes for the iDevices that were Sword of Fargoal and Sword of Fargoal Legends.

I took a lot of photos and some video of the event and many exhibitions I had a chance to check out. The event was great with some really unique gadgets, apps and innovations to see. I was really taken and impressed by a solar battery charger shown tested on the iPad called the JOOS Solar Charger — I also found out at the event that it won an award during CES 2011 for innovation. Imagine having an iPad charged (at least up to 70% of full battery) wherever there is sun present. I also liked the comfortable swing chair that desktop Mac users should feel at home with and the variety of skins available from Music Skins as decorations for the iDevices (I was told desktops and laptops as well).
