De jongens van 3D Wars hebben even gezellig gebabbeld met Keith Galocy van 3dfx. Het resultaat ervan vind je hier. Geen info over de Voodoo4 trouwens.
MB: With all these new titles coming out such as Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament that use the latest 3dfx hardware, how do you feel about 2D Civil War games that are still being published?
KG: Not all games are best represented in 3D. However, many traditional 2D games such as real time strategy (RTS) games are beginning to take advantage of 3dfx hardware. Games like TA: Kingdoms and Diablo2 use 3D for enhanced visuals and special effects but still maintain a top-down view. Other RTS games such as Pandemic's "Dark Reign 2" and Singularity Software's "Fire and Darkness" are taking a more radical 3D approach.
MB: Explain the Total Immersion program. How does it help bring the game developer community closer to 3dfx?
KG: Actually, I'd say it's the other way around. The Total Immersion developer program helps 3dfx get closer to the development community. Understanding the wants and needs of the developer has been critical to 3dfx's success. 3dfx earns the respect of the development community by providing a stable development environment through timely technical support, solid drivers and exciting technology.
