Evening Q&As

  • COPS 2170
    Experience Gaming's COPS 2170: The Power of Law Q&A grills Vitally "YS" Shutov about Mist Land's upcoming cyberpunk strategy game: "The game distinguishes itself with its style, atmosphere and original plot. These 3 features are the most powerful and significant parts of the project. The large-scale battles are probably the most distinctive features of the game. Unlike many other games, in COPS 2170: The Power of Law you can find large-scale levels appropriate for sudden tactical decisions, as well as, long-distance combat incorporated in an engaging plot."
  • ALFA: Antiterror
    The ALFA: Antiterror Q&A on FileFront chats up Mist Land's Yaroslav Astakhov about their upcoming turn-based strategy game: "Firstly, ALFA: Antiterrorís unprecedented realism is really its strong point. This realism is implemented by using true ballistics, physics and combat distance model, as well as the creation of extremely detailed levels, attention to military operation doctrines, and the inclusion of a huge cache of international weapons and equipment."
  • Havok Physics
    The Havok Q&A on FileFront talks with Steve Collins about the physics engine: "Itís sorta interesting in that for the game engine weíre not interested inaccuracy. We spend all our time on performance and memory usage optimization. The laws of physics are pretty well known, and writing a simulator is actually reasonably straightforward. The catch is making it fast and robust enough to deploy in a game. So the rule of thumb is 'does is look right'. If it looks right then it is right, and the people who judge that are the game designers and artists not the engineers. In many situations in games, the physics is very unrealistic: people donít run at 80 mph but in FPS games they do. In order to optimize the engine we sacrifice realism for speed, and push that compromise to the point where the physics is still plausible."
