Jon and Dirk are joined by Brian Reynolds, designer of ‘Civilization 2’, ‘Alpha Centauri’, ‘Rise of Nations’ and more. They discuss Brian’s career as a designer, his approach, what makes ‘Alpha Centauri’ stand up so many years later, and Brian’s future projects.
Definitely one of my favorite episodes. Brian has been in this business as long as just about anyone, and his career spans an incredible number of genres and interesting projects. Given the unique place Alpha Centauri continues to hold in gaming history I really enjoyed the opportunity to grill Brian a bit on the choices that went into it. I hope you guys enjoy this one as much as me!
