The Hero Herald Issue #1

By Austin Chalk  

Hey everyone!

I wanted to use my blog post this week to start Issue #1 of The Hero Herald!

I’ve always loved when games create supplemental content to flesh out characters and lore in a way that you wouldn’t get from gameplay alone. Hopefully I can draw more of these in the future to do the amazing world of Hero Academy some justice!

Enjoy!

I’m Addicted…

By Mike Petersen  

OK, I’m addicted… I’ve been playing a LOT of Heroes Of The Storm since alpha. There is a lot to like about the game, especially if you like any other Blizzard franchise. Since I like/have played most of their games since Warcraft II, Heroes of the Storm (HOTS) is a great way to to get lost in the nostalgia. Not that long ago they released HOTS 2.0 – which is not a new version of the game as much as a rework of the meta game. There are a […]

WASD vs ESDF

By Eric Fowler  

WASD vs ESDF…is this even an issue? Probably not. But perhaps it should be…

Every PC gamer knows what WASD is; typical first person controls for movement. ESDF on the other hand might take some thinking, but simply put, it is WASD shifted one key to the right.

Soooo…what’s the difference? Glad you asked. Quite a bit, actually.

First of all, some brief history. Why did WASD come about in the first place? Back in the early days of PC gaming, when first person shooters started to emerge, people would play the […]

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 :).

The Board Game That Made me a Gamer

By Drew Walton  

allthegamesI recently moved down to Texas from North Carolina. It was a big move in my life and career, leaving friends and communities to move down to the Lone Star state to take on animating at BonusXP. As you can see from my living room photo, board games take up a lot of packing space as it is a big passion of mine.

As I unpacked my board games one game in my collection stood out as a classic. One I associate with lots […]
