ZAM Jason Bender Game Design Interview

By FallenXE - 29th November 2016 - 18:47 PM

Following up from their earlier interview with former C&C developer Jason Bender on the workings of BattleCast PrimeTime, the folks over at ZAM are once again back with an outtake interview with Jason conducted on the same day as the first.

This time around we go in-depth on the inner workings of game design, how professional gamers influenced and affected the development of Command & Conquer and on the development of mobile gaming. An excerpt of the interview can be read below:



What happened on Command and Conquer is that we took a little bit of the wrong feedback from our best players. We brought them in and put them up at the Ritz Carlton where we had them play the in-development game for a week.

Every day they would give us notes. Every night we would integrate the notes and give them a new build by the morning. What ended up happening was the game got a little too twitchy and little too fast. And it really wasn't the CNC we wanted. It wasn't even giving the hardcore players what they were asking for either.

From the above it can be seen that the devs did take into account the perspective and opinion of professional gamers in the development of C&C, despite the traditional assumption that Electronic Arts never bothered to slant C&C towards being an RTS of serious designs in competitive gaming unlike StarCraft etc.

Again, if you would like to read the original interview do head to the site to find out more on what Jason had to share regarding his experiences. And as always, do share us your thoughts on this piece below!
