During ApolyCon '06 held last month in Timonium, Maryland, Soren Johnson and Dorian Newcomb gave a presentation on "Prototyping for Civilization IV" at event venue Holiday Inn Select-Baltimore North. What can now be considered the first version of this session was conducted during the Game Developers Conference this past May; this time, more in-game CivIV demonstrations were possible and available time overall was available.

In the first of five installments personal introductions, small teams and the gameplay/graphics/interface interplay are explored in whole or in part. Below is a screenshot from this production:
