Making Giants Q&A
8:41 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

FGOnline has posted a quick Q&A with Tim Williams, creative director for Planet Moon's upcoming RTS Giants: Citizen Kabuto. This unique game just went Gold for the PC, and the team is currently working on the inevitable patch, and thinking through the possibility of releasing a demo. The interview covers the high points of the development of Giants over the past three years, discusses whether a demo will be released, and even discusses the possibility of a sequel. Here's a clip:

FGN Online: What's next for Planet Moon aside from a holiday?

Tim Williams: We're going to work on a patch and look through the game to see if there's anything we've left out. We'll probably release a patch when the game is released, just to clean a few things up.

After that, looking to the future we'll see a Giants 2 at some point, unless the game completely flops. The good thing about this game is that we feel it really has legs. It's so different to other things we've all seen before. It feels like something we want to continue with, we're not bored with it and there's a lot more we can do with it. That's what we're planning on doing next.

Looking further than that, I'd like for us to come up with another great gameplay idea where everyone is again thinking, "How they hell are they going to do that?" It could be absolutely any kind of game. We'll have a few beers around a table and come up with something else.

The good news about the game going Gold is that the codebase is mostly finalized, and the Mac port can begin in full. MacPlay is hoping to publish the game sometime next year for the Mac. Check out our first look at Giants for much more information.
