Heavensent: Fall From Heaven 2 Basically Done

By Kieron Gillen on December 22nd, 2008.

Get 'em! He's looking at my hexes funny. Er... not that Civ has hexes. RUINED.
I’ve been wanting to give this a proper play before blogging about it ever since Tom Chick brought its “final”-status to my attention.

The second half were the bits about Civ 4, which we publish below, where Soren talks extensively about Firaxis’ desires for the project, why Civ multiplayer had never worked in the past, and the difficulties of moving the old warhorse into 3D.

The non-existent part where we talked about Spore will never be published, as it didn’t happen. Pay attention.
