Mythic Project begins today! Live updates throughout the week at http://www.youtube.com/WingCommanderCIC. Videos filmed from ChrisReid's cell phone will automatically appear on YouTube. Check this space regularly! The team will also be taking separate high definition videos of the event to archive/upload later.
Members of the CIC staff and other volunteers have made their way to Virginia to help archive what remains of Origin Systems' data library. We will be updating throughout the next week to let everyone know how the mission is going - expect big things!
Thanks to the invaluable assistance of the Wing Commander community, "Team Technosaur" is primed and ready with working equipment and methods for reading everything from 3.5" diskettes to SyQuest removable hard drives. Good work, everyone - we'll be working for you!

The author credits the game for kickstarting FMV and next-level storytelling in games without compromising on the gameplay. (2018-05-25)

Hobbes Betrayal Crosses Over Language Barriers
Most people are familiar with the infamous video cuts that were made to fit all of the video on the Wing Commander 3 discs. Helpful sequences such as the TCN news bursts and Hobbes explanation were omitted due to space constraints. Fortunately, these are now available here at the CIC, but for a long time, the main way players could watch the Hobbes scene was to track down a copy of WC3 on the Playstation or 3DO. (2018-05-23)
