Hello Darts fans from all over Europe,
Today, we’d like you to meet a true darts legend and a very good friend of ours: the one, the only…SID WADDELL!
On 30 November, Mark McGinley (Senior Producer at SCEE), the film crew and I braved the arctic winds, minus temperatures and fought through the snow in order to make our appointment in snow-covered Leeds with Sid.
Armed with a box of chocolates, two pints of milk and a box of PlayStation goodies for Sid and his family, we were somewhat cold but more than ready for a fun filled interview with the man himself, and also may I add made extremely welcome by Sid’s lovely wife Irene – thank you for the tea and coffee, Irene. :)
As you may or may not yet know, Sid weaved his magic and provided all the in-game commentary for Top Darts. The in-game script was specifically written for him and Sid brought the VO to life in a way only he can.
Sid is fondly known and well respected in the world of top flight (excuse the pun) Darts and we couldn’t wait to sit down and question the silver-tongued cavalier about his love of Darts and ask him a load of questions about the game and his experience working with the Dev team.
For an insight into the man behind the mic and to get all the inside track from the great man himself, take a look at the full interview above.
