Ars Technica, "War Stories" episode on Homeworld
I don't know how many here are aware of Ars Technica's "War Stories"-series. The series is a look at certain important games and their development process, and more importantly a unique challenge to the process of making each game.
Today the episode on Homeworld went live.

The episode on Homeworld has big focus on the 3D graphics aspects, particularly the camera.

I think it is a must watch for aspiring FREDers, as well as veterans.
"When you work with water, you have to know and respect it. When you labour to subdue it, you have to understand that one day it may rise up and turn all your labours into nothing. For what is water, which seeks to make all things level, which has no taste or colour of its own, but a liquid form of Nothing?" - Graham Swift, Waterland


"I am Curiosity, and I've always wondered what would become of you, here at the end of the world." - The Guide/The Curious Other, Othercide

"As you sought to steal a kingdom for yourself, so must you do again, a thousand times over. For a theft, a true theft, must be practiced to be earned." - The terms of Nyrissa's curse, Pathfinder: Kingmaker

"...because they are not Dragons."

Thanks for sharing :-)

The series is bloody fantastic! Highly recommended for anyone who has an interest in video game design - which is to say, about 90% of the active members in this group  :cool:

The Homeworld video above is particularly interesting for anyone who has an interest in the development of space games - which is to say...   :lol:
