During ApolyCon '06 held in Timonium, Maryland this past July, Big Huge
Games (BHG) designer Paul Stephanouk gave a presentation to attendees on
the development of the company's premiere title, Rise of Nations, which
offered a glimpse into BHG's approach to game in general.
In the fifth of five parts, Stephanouk answers an attendee's question as
to what his favourite video game is and his view on digital distribution,
gives away a copy of the original RoN beta to another attendee who
correctly answers a trivia question -- and then beats him at a game of
"Rock, Paper, Scissors" -- and working with publisher Microsoft Game
Studios. Finally, Stephanouk is presented with something for him and the
other members of the BHG staff to enjoy.
