The fine folks at Wargame Design Studio just recently released their latest game – Thirty Years’ War – in their Musket & Pike series. Rich stops in with Brant & Jim to talk about their recent releases, the company’s current design plans, and what they’re currently excited about.
Don’t forget, you can always catch up with past episodes on the “podcast” tab of our site.
What’s the company’s design and release philosophy – tablets? Macs? Steam? Long-term patching & support? What’s the breakdown of their different series and how widely are their historical nets cast? How did they get sychronous online multiplayer functionality “right” 20 years ahead of a bunch of other companies that still haven’t figured it out? What’s up with the graphics? Why don’t they announce games until they’re actually launching? And yes, we cram it all into a 1-hour show.
