Hintergrundinfos über die Entstehung des Red Alert Universums und ein paar schöne Anekdoten. Interview komplett auf englisch.
gesehen auf cnc-inside.dePCG: What were some of your favorite stories from working on the game? I heard one about attack dogs turning into projectiles…
AI: Yeah, the dogs that could survive a nuke. Classic. [Lead Programmer] Joe Bostic had coded the dog to turn itself into a projectile when it jumped, so that the dog essentially "shot" itself at enemies, then reconstituted itself into a unit when it landed. Projectiles in the C&C engine were non-interactive with other weapons, so if dogs happened to be in the air when the nuke hit, the dog would survive. It was great to see this mushroom cloud go up, and then there was Rin Tin Tin just standing there in the aftermath, tail wagging.
