Hi guys! Hopefully this is the right place to post this as I couldn't a see a general Civilization forum for generic Civ series topics outside of a single title. One of the reasons I decided to return to the Civilization series and replay all the earlier games (some of you have probably seen me posting new mods, strategies and barbarian guides in the Civ 1 & 2 forums over the last year, 20yrs too late haha) and start working on a Civilization Website website (currently in a VERY rough under construction state lol) was because a year ago PC Gamer (Issue 311 - Dec 2017) did an awesome 14 page spread on the history of the Civilization series covering all the main games with behind the scenes info and new interviews with Sid Meier, Bryan Reynolds and Jeff Briggs to name a few. It really got me thinking about the games again and how much I miss them. Because they had such an impact on me I figured I may as well share them with other fellow Civ fans that might enjoy them. I've only scanned the first 2 pages of the PC Gamer one as fortunately I found an online copy here: https://www.pcgamer.com/au/the-complete-history-of-civilization/ Then just by pure coincidence while cleaning out my spare room I found an old Australian PC Powerplay magazine (Issue 112 - May 2005) with a beautiful visual tribute to classic Civilization 1 and an interview with Bruce Shelley. This article became a big inspiration for how I'd do my website tribute (eg colourful map of the world background). Here's my scans of that if anyone is interested (I very much doubt this is on the net anywhere!): Gamasutra also did a cool history of the series back in 2007 that people may wish to read as once again it's got some good interviews: https://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/129947/the_history_of_civilization.php?print=1 And finally if all that isn't enough and you REALLY want to get into the nuts and bolts of the making of the series then check out this HUGE crowdfunded history write up by Jimmy Maher that goes into incredible detail about the games, how it all started and the troubles Sid went through just to get Civ 1 made. It's very long but very informative and well written! https://www.filfre.net/2018/03/the-game-of-everything-part-1-making-civilization/ Hope people enjoy the read as much as I did!
