During the gamescom 2014, our very own Don-Esteban had the chance to ask Piranha Bytes some questions which we had been collecting in the team.

The interview was with the story department, namely Jenny and Björn Pankratz and Harald Iken.

It took us some time to transcribe and translate the interview, but it is now finally available. Enjoy!

Kai Rosenkranz, responsible for the music in the Gothic series, is now following another path. Or paths, to be precise. Not only did he found the company Nevigo and created the "articy" software, a tool for game developers, but he is also back in business as a music composer. He is currently collecting money on Kickstarter to fund a new music album.

Reason enough for our staff member Maladiq to torture the buzzing ex-Piranha with so many questions, we had no choice but to make an interview out of it.

Interview with Kai Rosenkranz
Kickstarter campaign

Kai Rosenkranz, composer of the soundtrack of Gothic 1-3 and of the first part of the Risen-trilogy, has decided to compose music again after his five years abstinence.

According to Kai, the album will be very personal and is not made for any video game - just music from Kai and some of his friends.

To finance the project, Kai has started a campaign on Kickstarter, 20.000 $ are needed. Further stretchgoals like included orchestra musicians are planned.

For backers spending at least $14, some Gothic and Risen medleys are included. A "Let's Meet Special" for $125 is available, too, which means camping and barbecue with Kai, Mike Hoge, Mattias Filler and Sascha Henrichs - all of them are or have been long-time members of Piranha Bytes.

Furthermore, Kai has launched a thunderclap - and donations via Paypal are possible, too.

The patch which Piranha Bytes completed several days ago and submitted to Deep Silver (as we reported) is now officially available.

According the description on the official download page, the patch only fixes the “multicore bug”. Other bugfixes or improvements are apparently not included.

Owners of the Steam version will get the patch automatically via the Steam software. People who purchased the DRM-free retail version will have to manually download and apply the patch.

Owners of high-end CPUs which show more than 10 cores under Windows (including virtual hyperthreading cores) currently suffer from a bug which causes the game to crash during start.

So far, only workarounds are available that decrease the overall performance (e.g. reducing the amount of CPU cores which Windows uses).

According to a post by Michael Rüve in our forum, a patch that fixes this bug has already been delivered to Deep Silver. Now the publisher only has to check and then publish it. Hence, the patch can be expected to be available shortly.

We currently do not know what other issues this patch might address.

Sascha Henrichs, the 3D artist responsible for the environment design at Piranha Bytes, published a bunch of screenshots from the recently released Risen 3: Titan Lords on his personal blog.

Naturally, the screenshots focus on the beautiful and spectacular landscapes in the game. If you want to see bloody combat scenes with lots of special effects, you’ll need to keep looking.

Unusual marketing methods by Deep Silver: Normally, trailers are published before a game hits the shelves. But Deep Silver, ever so brazen, decided to wait until the game is available in North America and certain stores in Europe before coming out with this trailer about the three factions.
