Point of Origin: Vol. III, No. 45 Update ID

There's nothing too exciting in the August 27, 1993 issue of Point of Origin... several projects are continuing in development as planned, and there's no huge end-of-quarter rush like there was in the previous year. One thing I think we're starting to see here is an increased corporatization of Origin - check out the 'Dear Point Man' answers this time around to see what I mean... although these recent issues have insisted that Origin is independant from EA's normal setup, it looks like the partnership is starting to take its toll.

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!

  • This issue's Pulse Check has a status update on Privateer: "In testing: Shadowcaster, which is 'tracking,' (is anyone else getting tired of that story yet?); Privateer, which is reportedly shaping up nicely; and Tactical Ops, which, according to playtesters, is great and should sign off Monday or Tuesday."

Wing Commander Movie Model Rundown

Atherin has been busy recreating nearly every ship in the Wing Commander film using SketchUp. There's really not much missing - we don't see the Kilrathi Concom, Diligent or some of the small background items, but just about all of the other major stuff is there. It's a pretty nice lineup!
