Point of Origin: Vol. III, No. 33 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

The year seems to be starting out well, according to the February 26th, 1993 issue of Point of Origin. Both EA and the industry at large are interested in expanding the game development market in Austin, seemingly a direct result of Origin's past successes -- and we all know how that turned out!

A very special thanks to Joe Garrity of the Origin Museum for making this resource available and to Electronic Arts for sending them to him in the first place!

  • "End-Quote" has a few words of praise for the screensaver: "ORIGIN FX gets a nice mention in France's Generation 4, which writes: 'ORIGIN FX is simply fabulous and easy to use. With all the options, even the new user can obtain impressive results.' Not quite how we'd say it, but okay."
  • Still Growing describes new employees: "Greg Gidel is working on Wing Commander for the FM Towns machine. Originally from Illinois, Greg's a long-time EA fan (Bard's Tale) as well as Ultima player."
  • One of the responses in Dear Point Man describes plans for personalizing the new office: "Not only do we want a place to show all our awards, we want to have a couple of other spots in the building that would make interesting tour stops--places like the Wall of Fame in Customer Service, a 'Rogue's Gallery' of bizarre art from our artists, and an ORIGIN history area with Akalabeth, Wing Commander design plans, pirate copies of Ultima... things like that."
  • Finally, the March, 1993 CGW Reader Poll lists Wing Commander II at #6.
