Firaxis podcast

June 17th, 2006 by Troy Goodfellow · No Comments · Uncategorized

I’m an admitted Firaxis fanboy. Though I will often take shots at the company for resting on Meier’s past triumphs, I can’t deny that the re-imaginings and revisions of his classics are irresistible and addictive.

If you want some insight into the company, they have a podcast now. I mean, why not? Everyone else does. It’s pretty short – less than a half hour – and will be monthly. The purpose behind the podcast seems to be to show how cool Firaxis is as a workplace. But there is also some insight into how the games industry works with some discussion of what exactly a producer does and how QA may not be the most exciting job in the world.

Stay till the end for the Meier Minute. The podcast looks like it will be slowly releasing information about an unannounced Firaxis game.
