Dinge die Du noch nicht über die Menschen von CIG wusstest!
Was LEGO City Undercover mit CIG zu tun hat? Nun, das konnte ich bis vor kurzem auch nicht beantworten. Aber dank des RSI Communiy-Mitgliedes "Feylan" weiß ich das Erin Roberts der leitende Designer dieses Spieles war.
Ist das wichtig? Sieht man mal davon ab, das ich das Spiel ziemlich cool finde ;-) eigentlich nicht. Aber es ist nur einer von vielen Fakten die er und die Community über das CIG Team zusammen getragen haben. Ich finde es extrem beeindruckend wer alles an dem Projekt arbeitet und wie lange ich schon die Arbeit von vielen in dem Team kenne und schätze, ohne zu wissen, das diese Personen für die jeweilige Arbeit verantwortlich sind.
