Has Mr Borg published any articles or other notes discussing the design of the game?

Unfortunately not to my knowledge, Mario.

However, I suspect he just wanted to keep the GAME aspect of CC:A, and bring in a whole bunch of newbies into the "sport". Perhaps he thought a designer's notes would detract from the universality of his game?

There is actually an article from back before the game was released. My memory is fuzzy, but they are available online... somewhere. It had the infamous mention of the Napoleonic flavor of the C&C system, which still hasn't seen the light.

I believe this is what you are looking for. (I bookmarked it, ya know)

Thank you much. Not much mention of Ancients but it gives a flavor of his philosophy and goals (granted they are fairly obvious from the game itself...). I guess no further word on the Napoleonics since, huh?

BAttle Cry is to be reissued next year in preparation for the anniversay for the year after.

But for Napoleonics, I was assured it is under contract but won't be announced until "that company" decides to do so. Apparently the title has been under contract many times before but those companies have allowed ti to lapse without exercising their right to publish it. (I am not lawyer, so my terms might be off - but basically, many companies have had the rights and chosen not to publich - so we may have more of the same. Regardless, Richard Borg can't give any more details.)

Howdy,

On June 25th on the GMT forum at Consimworld, the following was posted by Gene Billingsley:

C&C Napoleonic????

When can we expect to see Command and Colors: Napoleonic Ed. in the P500 queue?

Dave Smith

Sorry, Dave, I missed this earlier.

Nothing concrete as yet on timing for P500 as much is still in flux, but if I had to guess right now I'd say probably a 2-4 month timeframe to see it on the P500 list would be about right.

Gene
