6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
2K Games and Firaxis, in honor of the launch of Sid Meir's Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword expansion for PC, recently announced they have asked several web comic creators to produce comics and animated shorts set within the Civilization universe. The creations will be called Civilization Daydreams and will lend voice and greater depth to some of the units and characters from the game.
As the game that launched the “God Game” strategy genre, Civilization has allowed players to direct great armies in battles and bring warring factions together in dazzling feats of diplomacy. Every player experiences the ultimate thrill of being in command and leading a nation. Yet, we’ve always wondered what it would be like to hear from the units and characters inside the game – to give them a voice. What if life inside a game of Civilization was real – real at least to the characters inside the game’s universe? What would the units inside a game say to each other? What would they say about you – the game’s “God” – and the decisions you make and strategies you employ?Some of the web comic creators involved in Daydreams include the authors of 8-Bit Theater, Ctrl-Alt-Delete, Dueling Analogs, GUComics, MyExtraLife and PvPOnline.
