New RoN Scenarios and Mods
Friday, May 12, 2006
So how do you like your games served?
So what, you may ask? Well, a good story can always carry the otherwise progressional, pedantic campaigns or scenarios. If you care about why you're doing it that always makes it not just a game but an experience.
So, who better to tell the big boys this than our very own Gordon Farrell, who heads up the team? Always an ambassador for great gameplay, he focuses on the creation of RTS games! Looks like a great way to refresh the game companies on a few things they have forgotten along the way. Throwing features at a game doesn't always make it better.
For those lucky enough to be in the NY area this is a great opportunity to learn more about game design. The class runs from May 15th to June 23 and meets Monday and Wed from 5:30 to 8:30. This is an actual college class you can take for college credits. A pity it cannot be more widespread but the fact that any country or just a part of one is even doing this is a fantastic moment of recognition for all of us.
If you're in the area and can take advantage of this wonderful opportunity, don't delay - apply today! It's a little pricey but if you have the chance to go for it don't pass it up. If you can't, maybe we'll get something back into the games they've been lacking anyway, so it's all good.
Good luck with it Gordon, and don't forget to let us know how you got on. The link for the project itself is here.
