Stronghold: Crusader Interview
Eric Ouellette - When starting on Stronghold, we had two aims. One was to create a castle sim, which we focused on in Stronghold. We are now using that engine to create a very good SKIRMISH game. We have really enjoyed playing skirmish mode in games such as Age of Empires. No one has really seemed to push or improve that type of game recently. In most RTS style games, skirmish is almost an afterthought. Our goal in Crusader is to create the best skirmish game out there.
