It’s been awile since last Q&A interview. Yo$hik is an Ukranian RtCW mapper who has contributed alot for the RtCW scene.
One of his creations is DARK MATTERS SP MAP MISSION, VENDETTA to name a few.
Q. Hello Yo$hik. How are you doing?
Hi Ray. Very well, as far as possible in this cold and wet deep autumn, thanks.
Q. Thanks for having this interview with you.
This is also a very interesting event for me. Not every day to you: knock-knock, we’re up to you to take an interview 🙂
Q. Is there a special meaning behind your nickname?
So, by this nickname hides a small particle from my childhood. My true name is Sergey, but when my godfather came to me on birthday’s or holiday’s, he always called me a hedgehog. Yes, it sounds funny. Hedgehog is the verbatim translation of the word from my native language, but if somebody said it on my language, you would have heard like «yoshik» (?????). And when in the far 2004 I got access to the Internet network, and there was a question of choosing a nickname, I chose «Yoshik». So he lives with me to this day.
Q. What made you first discover RtCW (Return To Castle Wolfenstein)?
That year, when RtCW came out, I did not have a computer, just like my friends. And neither me nor my comrades knew about the existence of this game. At that time in our small city, there were popular computer clubs where you could rent a PC for a fee and play some game to take fun. Popular then was in most cases networking multiplayers modes, but sometimes played singles campaing. And on the some day, the club’s administrator put a few new releases, among which was the Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Severance Blade of Darkness. I played a small amount of time, but both of these games fired me deeply into my heart.
