I'd like to do a short email interview with Alex for my blog. However, I can't find a contact email for him. Does anyone know if he would agree to such an interview, and if so, how I would contact him to ask?

Probably is easier to find him on his blog

But I do not remember where his blog is now... Wait for someone other member to show up with that info.

Or his blog like Speeder said;

Not sure if this is his current one > http://my.opera.com/axle/blog/

Confirmed. The Axle blog is abandoned. The Altg one is the active blog since several months now. I'll update the link in my profile.

About the interview, I may anticipate that it could come out as a pretty confused interview from a confused guy, but guess it could take place via email? If that's ok, I may PM you my actual email address.

People should interview Alex more often, this seemly summons him.

Jefequeso. There are no words for what you just did.

Well.. he did a GREAT review, so how could I say no?
And after all, I was going to come back before Postline labeled my profile picture as "missing in action"... sounded scary.

Yes, it would be an email interview. It would mostly be about your games (Noctis IV and Crystal Pixel to be specific), how you think about game design, what your opinion is on different things relating to the game industry, and stuff like that. "Confused" answers are perfectly acceptable :3. And I'm very glad you liked my review! I tried my best to do the game justice. Noctis IV has been very inspirational to me both in game design and in less concrete ways.

So yeah... I'll send you my initial questions once I get your email. Thanks for agreeing to this! I'm looking forward to it.

Two quotes I feel like highlighting:
Alex said:
"In my case, programming has always been a form of self-expression, before everything else."
...
"It [Avatar?] was never brought to a finished state, but it did suggest me something: that I didn't like to focus on lonesome realities anymore."
[emphasis mine]

Yep, I was talking about Avatar.

I miss Avatar


In university I spent several hours playing it, even without the correct charset...


And I almost got a girl because of it (several girls looked at me playing and thought it was so cool and nerdy and hipster or something like that... and wanted to become my friends and dragged me out of the computer to talk to them... But back then I sucked with girls )
a title is a curious thing...

I was way late to the party - if there ever was one - but I would have played Avatar a lot more if there were others playing it at the same time. It definitely was an interesting game.

I can't vouch for its potential to attract women, though.
