A chat with Tony SimermanThe guys over at Team Xbox have posted a chat that they conducted with the Producer of Circus Maximus, Tony Simerman. In the interview Mr Simerman talks about his background and fills us in on his upcoming Xbox title. Here is a clip.
Bart: "Ok, lets get to the important question! Tell us all about the game and how it will be played. Basically, what can we expect to see?"
Simerman:"Racing Thuggery! Circus Maximus is an arcade style racing experience that will require the player to use both combat and environmental interaction to achieve victory. You will drive and control a team of horses that is truly alive. Using the warrior, players must fend off attacks as well as deal out punishment to the opponents. The environment will be alive with pick-us and ambient characters like Roman soldiers and barbarians that must be dealt with to claim glory."
"The inspiration for the racing environments is drawn from regions in Ancient Rome. You will be able to thunder across the frozen tundra of Germania and navigate the bustling streets of Rome on your way to a date in the great Circus where 350,000 citizens await! "
