At GDC the Maxis team showed off their new game engine for SimCity, called the GlassBox engine. A visitor of the presentation has captured some video of it, which shows that this engine brings some pretty cool and unique gameplay with it.
Maxis has been the founding father for the SimCity and Sims franchises. They have been around for quite some time in the games industry. We’ve just discovered an open Facebook group that has lots of old (and not so old) photo’s from the company in it.
