Empires Newsletter - 06/09/02
Hello all and welcome to September's
Dragon Empires newsletter!
month we are introducing a new form of developer diary,
the Art Development Diary. I'm sure you'll all find
it very interesting and you can read about it below.
This newsletter also contains information on events
in the Dragon Empires world for the next month and
a new feature on Dragon Empires fan sites.
We know a lot of people are interested in the look
and feel we're going for with each empire in Dragon
Empires so we have started a new feature called
the Art Development Diary. The first entry is on
the Dragon Empires web page already under Dev
Diaries and tracks the development of a monkey
empire building. The Art Development Diary will
allow you to follow our design ideas from artist's
sketch through to finished in-game model. It will
be updated as we move through the various development
steps and will include comment from the artists
working on each phase of implementation. If you
want a real insight into the design work of a game
this is the best place to find it! You'll find a
picture from the diary showing a monkey empire village
building included with this newsletter. The monkey
empire is the most primitive of all the empires,
but also the closest to nature and the people who
live there are known for their nobility, intelligence
and ferocity in battle! We look forward to showing
you more of our world in the coming weeks.
