A tale of two developers

By Alec Meer on September 8th, 2007 at 7:52 pm.

I’m in Canada, looking at pixels flashing excitedly on screens. More on those another time – more importantly, here’s what the developers in question decorate their work-space.

The lobby of Gas Powered Games: a big, gleaming sword and a custom-made remote control car that can reverse at 50mph or something. Also, four different types of nut on tap.

The lobby of Relic entertainment: a giant statue of a Space Marine commander. And a full-scale tank poking through the wall. A tank. Also, a PS3 running Mortal Kombat II (which, in retrospect, really is a terrible game).

That is all. (And pictures to be added once I get back to Blighty and find a memory card reader).

    *crosses fingers hoping for info about why Relic will never do another space-based RTS a la Homeworld, even though everyone knows it would be a grand measure of awesome*

    Battlefleet Gothic in the Homeworld style would be nice, yes.

    Erm, didn’t they run MK2 on a 360, Live Arcade and such? ;)

  4. Alec Meer says:

    No. They ran it on a PS3, which I hinted at by saying “PS3″.

    I was going to make a comment along the lines of “Someone other than Microsoft in retro games SHOCKER!” but I thought it would be too condecending to ro…

    Ah.
