We all (?) know that Civilization has been created and developed by Sid Meier first and several companies afterwards. But what would have been the result if Civilization would have been created by others? Let's take a look... - Bullfrog: you can modify the terrain near your Populous tribe and make everybody happy, but nothing really progresses after that. You can be best friends with a barbarian bear nearby, though. Your settlers are plenty and upkeep free. - Maxis: you watch your monitor twiddling thumbs for 7 hours as your Similization evolves from bacteria. It's the late modern era when they start demanding attention, and how! - Nintendo: Somehow Stalin will be in a crucial role in this Super Civio game. He bounces through the enemy territory into their capital where the AI leader awaits, and not so pleased. - Sony: Every leader has big eyes, small mouth. Every patch is promised to be Final. Your units will become quite experienced in a fancy ways. - id Software: You can only build marines in deserted military complexes. Relationships with AI civilizations will be Doomed. And you can find Civ quick run videos from the net. - Microsoft: It looks like you're creating a rifleman! Your Capitalization is big but the cultural border leaks barbarians badly. Blue ocean scenario is a killer! - Jeff Minter: Llamas! More to come. ? feel free to improve!
