Working on the The History Game Canada project has been a truly rewarding experience so far. When I was first asked if I would be interested in helping out with the project I really had no idea what all was going to be involved. I had just finished up a pretty intense session with the Conquests expansion, and I really felt that I had everything under control. Nathon Gunn was working directly with Breakawaygames, in an effort to get the concept underway. I was asked at that point if I could spare some time and help out in creating a demo of the concept. Over time, this grew into a much bigger project, and something that I can honestly say I will regard as one of the most rewarding things I have ever had the chance to work on. Learning my own countries history while putting everything into an enjoyable gaming experience has been one of the biggest challenges I have ever faced while creating a mod or scenario. Sure, I have worked on a number of games in the past, but none have been so deeply focused on historical accuracy, while ensuring that the game is still a game. I will try to put together some design diaries over the next few weeks.
