  • Discover Age of Nations Featurette 1: "Forks in the Road"

    Furthering the (re-)discovery of the machinima and live-action blended series Age of Nations (AoN), this week's focus is on Featurette 1: "Forks in the Road". In addition to being able to download the episode in Windows Media (WMV) format from the course website, you can also stream it off of YouTube. Set in the Rise of Nations universe as the first Real-Time Strategy (RTS) machinima series and first for the game, AoN ran for one season of 14 episodes and ending with a featurette released in July 2007.

    As described for the series' first, and only, featurette:

    Three generals with three different means to the same end. A Councilman is dealt a political equivalent, but it may not be as devastating as those who delivered it believe.

    Destiny is on the mind of two foreigners in a strange land, while their former allies experience a power shift whose repercussions are poised to impact both themselves and those around them.
    Afterwards, you can also stream the commentary on the episode or download directly if you prefer; recorded and produced more than five years ago, this is the first time it has been made publicly available. From the now defunct game developer Big Huge Games co-founded by Civilization II and Alpha Centauri Lead Designer Brian Reynolds, RoN worked to incorporate Turn-Based Strategy (TBS) elements into an RTS environment.
