It’s time for episode 35, where we talk about the 1993 Simtex 4X strategy game, Master of Orion.
Before that, news time:
Bethesda announces the Elder Scrolls Anthology containing all Elder Scrolls games from Arena to Skyrim: Dragonborn.
John Carmack joins Oculus VR as CTO. He is not leaving id however his work at Oculus will take priority.
The history of Sierra Online film project I mentioned in a previous show did not fund. However the film will still be made.
Finally, Precinct, Jim Walls’ new game has cancelled its Kickstarter before it ended and is now adopting a tiered funding structure. Instead of trying to raise 500,000 dollars they are trying to raise 25,000 dollars to build a prototype.
We then get into Master of Orion where we run through all the usual suspects plus some great emails from listeners.
