Tempus Irae Volunteers - WOW!
Posted By: BorzzDate: 2/23/04 7:30 a.m.

I'd just like to take a moment to thank/congratulate everyone who contributed to this remarkable review/disection of the TI series. My head is still spinning from reading all of the posts, much like many of your heads were spinning traversing the levels ;)

It would be impossible to address all of the questions raised, and maybe some of them are best left unanswered. I also happily accept any and all criticisms, as well as praise for the work we put into the series (oh so many years ago). Reading people's reactions to certain areas of specific levels took me right back to our development/testing days on irc.

A lot of the comments hit the nail right on the head, while others were slightly off base...a fine balance which again, I thoroughly enjoyed reading.

The only topic I'd like to address is the comparing of scenarios. To me, each one is a Masterpiece in itself. Comparing one to the other is like comparing Picasso to Dali - they are completely different flavors and styles. No one is the be-all-end-all of gaming experiences. Each compliments the other and pushed their creators explore the unknown. My hat's off to anyone who has created even a single level, much less a multi-level scenario.

Once again, thanks for the wonderful trip back in time - especially those who painstakingly dictated every step over tens of thousands of carefully created polys :)
