As you may have read in the news last month, several CIC staff members recently made it back to the Unviersity of Texas video game document archive. In all, we got some 5,500 additional document scans from the David Downing Collection. While we haven't had time to sort through it all yet, here's several shots to whet Wingnuts' appetites.
The first image shows me (ChrisReid), LOAF and Pix hard at work photographing files. It's followed by a storyboard from Wing Commander 3. Then there's a cool mission flow chart from Wing Commander Prophecy. The next sketches are of the Kilrathi Emperor and Prince Thrakhath, and then there's some financial stats from Wing Commander 4. Finally, there's a very interesting summary for a concept that didn't make it into Prophecy. Originally, the Shrike bomber's forward section was an ejectable "sub-light fighter" that could be piloted in the event of catastrophic damage. Very cool!
