During ApolyCon '06 held in Timonium, Maryland last July, Firaxis Games Director of Creative Development Sid Meier, Designer/Programmer Soren Johnson and Senior Producer Barry Caudill answered attendee questions about the company, the Civilization series and computer strategy gaming in general. In the first of five parts released this past Monday, Meier takes center stage to take about the Civ series' beginnings to CivII. In the final minute or two, he hands it over to Johnson to continue the series story at CivIII and eventually onto CivIV. 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.
