Firefly Devs React 2

Today we continue our ‘Devs React‘ series with a second reaction-filled episode! This time our veteran Lead Designer Simon Bradbury looks back, using gameplay from the final mission of Stronghold HD to reflect on his history in game dev and how gamers play our titles today. We then examine a few more strategy classics – modern or otherwise – comparing titles in the strategy scene from some of the biggest studios around.

So join us as we delve into the science fiction world of Blizzard’s StarCraft 2, Relic’s recent continuation of a fan favourite franchise in Age of Empires 4 and the bespoke gameplay experience of Total War Medieval. All of which have inspired both Firefly itself and the strategy scene as a whole, to evolve, grow and reach new players.
