COVER FEATURE: THE LEGEND OF ATLANTIS
Just when you thought we’d done everything we can with The Legend of Atlantis, we give it one more outing so that we can share some of the elements that go into making up this award-winning game, and we also have a chat with the game’s programmer, Stuart Collier who reveals how the game was brought together along with his game-making partner in crime, Trevor Storey.
DIARY OF A GAME – THE MAKING OF BADLANDS Proving to be an incredibly popular feature and educational at the same time, Steve Collins continues with his Badlands diary entries, which he wrote way back in 1989. This time round Steve plays around with level construction and compression.
