Dragon Empires Newsletter - 3 January 2003

Happy New Year everyone and welcome to the first newsletter of 2003. This should be an exciting year for the Dragon Empires team and for everyone in the community so make sure to keep an eye on the newsletter for all the latest news.

Box art survey
We have always prided ourselves on listening to the Dragon Empires community and so we again we want your feedback! We have created five concepts of the Dragon Empires box and we are now looking for your opinion on which one is the best. To do this you need to take part in a survey here in which you can vote on and have a close look at the five boxes.

Before you look you should be aware that these images are mock-ups and are not the finished image that will be on the box. These box art concepts are just to give you an idea of what the box would look like and to help you when you fill in the survey. Head on over and tell us what you think!

Last month
December was quite busy with a lot of work going on all round. In particular, world building has started laying down the road network of Fortitude and examining the sites where cities will be located. Design work continues, as does programming, and art and animation are tackling buildings, objects and monsters. We will be showing you more of these in coming weeks and months.
