It's been more than ten years since we launched our very first InfoBurst -- an interview with CIC founders Christopher Reid and Ben Lesnick. Originally a RealAudio show, the CIC InfoBurst later returned as a free internet radio station. Tune in 24/7 to listen to random tracks from our music archive. Special shows that include the 1998/1999 telephone interviews with Chris Roberts, George Oldziey and Chris McCubbin have been archived in MP3 format.
Supported players include Winamp and VideoLan. Click here to tune in. Playlist and listener information is available from the InfoBurst section.
We're done with the rookie missions, we're done with the rookie-advanced missions and we're done with the advanced missions. So what's left? Gauntlets! Specifically, more gauntlets, since the advanced series already had one. This is the first (of four) - it's a simple battle against increasingly tough Kilrathi fighters. One interesting note: "As the game progresses, other high scores (which will be the player’s score +15% or so) will appear after other callsigns (Hawk, Maniac, Maverick, etc.) This should motivate the player to keep going back and trying the gauntlet." This aspect actually made it into the game, but in an even more elaborate fashion... if you do well enough at the gauntlets, other wingmen will join you as the fight progresses.
These updates are thanks to John "Captain Johnny" Guentzel, who provided several CD image archives of material used by the Wing Commander Prophecy development team!
