  1. Three Moves Ahead > Episodes > Amplitude Studios and the Endless Series


    7, 2016 This week Rob and Fraser welcome special guest Jeff Spock, Narrative Director at Amplitude Studios. The Endless Series has garnered a large amount of praise with its impressive debut in Endless Space, the unique gameplay in Dungeons of the Endless, and the master class of 4X gaming in Endless Legend. Jeff goes over the challenges of writing for 4X and strategy games and how the universe has changed from Endless Space to Endless Legend. Endless Legend has changed quite a bit since launch and Jeff explains how the series has evolved and where it might go in Endless Space 2. This topic was chosen in a poll by our Patreon backers.

    Endless Space, Dungeons of the Endless, Endless Legend, Endless Space 2

  2. Idle Thumbs > Shows > Three Moves Ahead


    1, 2016

    Certain sins are unforgivable. Poor interface, an over-abundance of tooltips, and apparently ship designers. Let’s get one thing straight: I - Michael, who writes these notes every week - like ship designers. I liked Gratuitous Space Battles, I like them GalCiv, I like them any way I can get them. So while I’ve never been on the show to defend my case on this particular topic, I’m writing the notes. Do I get to editorialize? Sure I do. Who’s going to stop me? Troy? Ship designers are always a delight. If you don’t like them, then this week you can listen to Rob, T.J. Hafer, and Rowan Kaiser go through their lists of strategy game pet peeves.

    Gratuitous Tank Battles, Stellaris, Crusader Kings 2, Total Annihilation, and many more
