This concept brought on Project Ara, which Google took control of after buying Motorola. Google are completely transparent with this idea, and has started with a developer’s conference to get as many people on board as early as possible. Check out their progress below: (more…)

The last time Meier created a game set in space it was a huge success – Alpha Centauri did really well. Publisher Electronic Arts still holds the rights to the Alpha Centauri name (which was a Civ spin-off), so this is developer Firaxis’ effort at a sequel. (more…)
