Maybe they should focus on making their games they already have run a bit better first. There are many complaints about the game play in World of Tanks. The platoon aspect needs fixing so it is more fairly ranked.

GDC 2015: Hear The Star Control Postmortem
10 December, 2014
News

The visitors of GDC 2015 in March will have an opportunity to hear the postmortem of a classical computer strategy game Star Control. The series creators Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III will share their insights and interesting facts about the development process back in the day.

Fred and Paul were the two people who founded the Toys For Bob Studio 25 years ago. No wonder the GDC officials are so excited about their appearance at the event. Star Control was one of the most influential games in its genre and still holds the crown of the first great space strategy. One of the biggest achievements of Star Control was a well-realized virtual galaxy, with millions of possibilities. Star Control was well received and had a lot of sequels.

Toys For Bob is a powerful studio that made Skylanders. Its nice to see Fred and Paul return to their roots and speak at length about their Star Control franchise. Developers will talk about the influences, the design and the challenges they faced during production. Unfortunately the session is only an hour long, so don’t miss it.
