Nexagon Diary

GameSpy.com's Nexagon Developer Diary Volume 7 is online, with Paul Thibault discussing the "Pits" that will serve as the arenas in the upcoming 3D game of action and tactics, describing them as "like baseball or football stadiums only they've got lava pits, fire breathing statues, and other nasty traps." The diary offers a description of the design process for these pits, discussing the inclusion of traps and puzzles, as well as billboards that offer advertising, a feature that impacts gameplay, as combatants who can control the billboards and pose in front of them will reap financial rewards from the game's corporations.
