Atari Auction Implies New Chris Taylor’s Total Annihilation

Everything is in place for Chris Taylor to make a sequel to Total Annihilation, thanks to Wargaming picking up the Total Annihilation IP in a recent auction of Atari properties. Taylor, of course, came under the armoured umbrella the World Of Tanks company when they purchased Gas Powered Games earlier this year. By connecting the inevitabilities, we can see what needs to happen here. Wargaming…

Primordial Oops: GPG Declares Wildman Extinct

If you've been following the sordid tale of Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games' Wildman, you probably won't find this one all that surprising. After Death's cold, potentially velociraptor-like claw nearly cut down the Kickstarter mere days after it launched, Taylor and co opted to stick it out. Unfortunately, even the probable doom of GPG wasn't enough to pied piper $1.1 million out of unwilling…

Feature: "There was no master plan"

Chris Taylor On The Brink

Chris Taylor just roared in my face. Neon dance lights are pulsing, loud, bass-heavy music is thumping, and Taylor's sudden vocal-chord-straining shout is reverberating off our empty corner of a DICE after-party. Intense. That's how I'd describe the scene. It's also how I'd describe Chris Taylor.

Gas Powered Facing Major Layoffs, May Halt Kickstarter

Right then, let me try laying this one out on paper, because I'm still having a hard time comprehending it. So, a few days ago, Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games announced a rather massive Kickstarter. Wildman, they said, would need $1.1 million in its tank before it could get off the ground, but they had it all planned out. So we got some gameplay…

Chris Taylor’s 180: Bigger Equals Better “Flawed Thinking”

Yesterday, Chris Taylor announced his new evolution-thwacking prehistoric RTS-RPG Wildman, so naturally, we talked about that until we, ourselves, evolved extra mouths so we could more efficiently talk about evolution. But what about, well, everything else? In ye olde year of 2010, after all, Taylor and co debuted Kings and Castles, a "biggest ever" fantasy RTS with dragons, chickens, and hopefully - for the sake…

Chris Taylor On GPG’s Prehistoric RTS-RPG, Wildman

Wildman! That's fun to say, isn't it? I like bellowing it at the top of my lungs while charging down sun-spattered hills, colossal bonking club aloft. Of course, I was doing that long before Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games announced a fantastical prehistoric RTS/MOBA/RPG with the very same title, so now it's actually relevant. But how exactly do all those puzzle pieces fit together?…

Chris Taylor’s Kings and Castles “On Hold”

Here's a sliver of information from Big Download, that steaming roast carcass of news. For reasons Taylor summarises as "a timing thing", Gas Powered Games has "put the project on hold" after a year of development. Details on the game itself are still quite hazy. We know it's an RTS featuring airships, dragons, knights, chickens and (presumably) castles that will let players take on the…

Interview: Chris Taylor On Dungeon Siege 3

This was a good one. When I met up with Chris Taylor (of Gas Powered Games and Supreme Commander fame) at GamesCom for my Dungeon Siege 3 interview, it was our respective last days of the convention. My body felt like a trashed and soon-to-be-demolished building, and Taylor was engaged in some kind of mental wrestling match with a hangover. To make matters more awesome,…

Taylor: “PC is where all the opportunity is”

Eurogamer has found Gas Powered Games' Chris Taylor in characteristically bullish mood arguing that thanks to the enormous explosion in Steam, he thinks the PC version of Dungeon Siege III will compete with the console ones, noting that "every major player in the world buying a PC gaming company" and leading to an exciting future. Example quote... It's a matter of time before you're playing…

“A Lot Of Interest” in Demigod Sequel

The precision-piranha of the games press, VG247, strike again. Analysing a small fragment in a video interview with gamers.fr where he alludes to the possibility of a Demigod 2. “We’ve got a lot of interest in a sequel to Demigod” he says, before moving on hope of recouping the money they invested in the first one. And sending children to college. Go to VG247 for…

CT’s Kings And Castles Footage

Gas Powered Games have been exhaustively videoblogging the progress of their new strategy game for a while now, but a lot of it seemed to consistent in Mr Taylor talking about farmyard animals, and I've kind of lost the thread. Anyway, there's some actual footage from the game in this latest episode, which might be worth taking a gander at (gander! See, now I am…

Obsidian To Develop Dungeon Siege III

Dungeon Siege III is to be created by the busy men at Obsidian. The company, having put out Alpha Protocol, now seem to be re-enforcing their previous role as a team who pick up other people's projects and take them in new directions. After Neverwinter Nights 2 and Knights of the Old Republic II, they're currently creating Fallout: New Vegas, and it's just been announced…

Christory Lessons: Kings and Castles

Oops, we took our eye off the ball there. One post about Gas-Powered Games' upcoming Kings & Castles, and then we completely ignored it. There's a reason for that. It involves clowns and toast crusts, and the memories remain too traumatic to share with you. Now those dark times are behind us, so I feel comfortable in bringing you more of the Supreme Commander/Dungeon Siege…

Gas Again: Kings And Castles

Gas Powered Games have announced their next RTS (they're wrapping up Supreme Commander 2 right now) and it's called Kings And Castles. Apparently it's a "one-of-a-kind experience" that will "let players take on the role of one of three powerful kings who are vying for control of an all-new, original fantasy world." The team plan to record and publish every aspect of development for this…

Meer vs Taylor on SupCom 2

Mr Meer is out in the snowy wastes today, trying to find his homeland. So it falls to me to point out this excellent interview with Chris Taylor, following the recent Supreme Commander 2 preview. Eurogamer Rock, Paper, Shotgun's Alec Meer, Hero Journalist: Do you feel like conventional RTS has given up and is moving on - so many people just can't do the multiplayer…

Fallout MMO Hires Chris Taylor (Not That One)

Well, we're all presuming the reborn Interplay's secret project is a Fallout MMO, as there's plenty of proof out there and nobody's denied it yet. Yesterday the new Interplay website opened up, and with it came a mention of “Project V13,” the working title for a 'next generation' MMO. No details whatsoever on that, but what is scintillating is the announcement that they've hired Chris…

Space Siege: Demo Is Go

I'll write up some impressions later today or tomorrow, once I've had the chance to play it (I'm a little wrapped in two other biggish games - silly season has started at last) but for now just a quick heads' up (heads-up? head's up? Gah) - Space Siege, the new RPG from Dungeon Siege/SupCom lot Gas Powered Games, has had the demo treatment. There's a…

Dave Perry’s Luminary Lunch

One of the more interesting sessions at this year's GDC was entirely off-campus. Dave Perry invited a load of chums to lunch, with a select press audience. Present were people like Raph Koster, Peter Molyneux, EA's Neil Young, Chris Taylor, Dave Perry and some bloke from Sony. And then they all had a good chin-wag. Annoyingly, Rossignol was present - as he's never going to…

Games For 2008: Space Siege

Gas Powered Games make mechanical games. Games where story and character are entirely secondary concerns to the underlying weights and balances: Supreme Commander and Dungeon Siege are creations of honed function, not form. These are games that do not understand this human thing you call 'love.' It's a very deliberate methodology, and one to celebrate. It's quite the rarity these days, a time of graphical…

Chris Taylor Interview

Just before the release of Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance, I sat down and had a chat with the ever-effusive Chris Taylor. It was a fun interview - it started casual enough, but amped up and up and up until Chris was saying things like... "When I ride the lawnmower, I put my son on it, he falls asleep and when I'm mowing, I don't think…
