CITIES XL interview on IncGamers
chatting with Monte Cristo CEO
Jerome Gastaldi about their upcoming urban planning game. Along the way
that brand-placement in the game is about both realism and
commercialism: "It makes the game look even more real-world, and partially, and
we'll admit this without shame, because we can make some money from that."
He also tells them
there will be no Sim City-style natural disasters in the
game when it ships, saying they will work on adding it post release: "If you
implement those gaming mechanics, you have to make sure there is a gameplay to
counterbalance these negative effects, and that's part of our upcoming features
after game release."
