Rose Colored Glasses

By Graham Somers  

Bruce just wrote a post about developing the original Civilization game, one that I played a ton of. My brother was actually the one that bought Civilization and got me playing it. My brother and I played our fair share of computer games when we were kids. Our family never had a game console for various reasons, but our Dad bought a computer in the late 1980s. It was used and the previous owner included his collection of games with it, which was mind blowing at the time. You didn’t […]

Remembering Civilization I

By Bruce Shelley  

civ_boxOur friends at Firaxis Games recently published Civilization VI, a turn-based strategy game, and over the past few years there have been a number of conference presentations looking back on the 25th anniversary of the first edition. It was a huge opportunity for me to be on the team that built Civilization I. We didn’t have many formal job titles then, but I did work that today would be tasks for a producer, writer, assistant designer, and test manager/lead (teams were much smaller around 1990 :).

Learning to Cook

By Marc Porto  

I love to cook. I spend a good portion of every weekend in the kitchen cooking something ridiculous (bacon weave) or time consuming (ravioli). A while back, I decided that I wanted to learn to roast chicken. So I did what any reasonable semi-adult would do. I looked it up online, and I called my Mother.

I chatted with my mom some and spent a bunch of time online reading about recipes and techniques. At some point I realized that I learned to cook the same way that I’ve been learning to make video games. Tribal […]

Podcasts Part One

By Alfonso Callejas  

podcasts_part1A podcast is kind of like a radio show, but on the internet. You can download or stream them on your phone and listen to them at your leisure. A few years ago, I started listening to Podcasts of radio-shows like RadioLab and This American Life. Since then, I have delved into programs that are exclusively podcasts.

One of the great things about being an artist is that while your hands and eyes are occupied with work – your ears are free to do whatever they want!

Plein Air

By Andrea Werntz  

pleinair001I have a trip to Europe coming soon and like any artist who goes to amazing locations I would love to take my sketchbook with me, and some watercolors or gouache, and sketch the town to bring back home my own interpretation of what I see.

Now, it sounds really fun and romantic but it can be really hard to try to paint the city when you are as rusty painting landscapes from life as I am. So I have been watching videos and tutorials, trying to figure […]

Mega Man (or How I Came to Work Games)

By Drew Walton  

Growing up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, I loved drawing and video games. I was one of the few children in my neighborhood lucky enough to have a Nintendo Entertainment System™ and often found myself totally engrossed in new characters and environments for hours on end. The inspiration continued long after the game was turned off as I found myself drawing the adventures I was having in games.

This past Christmas, my uncle gifted me a comic I had drawn when I was 8 years old, inspired by one of my favorite video games at the time- MEGA […]
