So amongst the other mails I got today, i also got one from Marshall Belew from Koiois Works. You may remember them from my posts way back since they were one of the first commercial MDX games out.
I'm sure you can guess that since i'm blogging about it now, that game #3 is coming soon. It's called "Panzer Command: Operation Winterstorm" and the engine they've done has come a *long* way since the first Tin Soldiers game.. I'm quite impressed with the screenshots i've seen thus far.
You can see some of said screenshots in this forum post from Matrix Games (the publisher of the 3 games). There is also a public forum for the game here.
One of the best quotes I have from Marshall which pretty much sums up my feelings on MDX and managed code in gaming?
"We continue to be complemented by our peers in the industry for what we have accomplished with the time and budget of our games."
I posted about the first game they did in October 2004. It's now Feb 2006, a mere 17 months later, and not only have they published a second game, this is going to be the third. Big congrats to those guys. It's looking great.
