First Impressions #3: Civilization intro

May 9, 2009

As per a request by Alignn over on my YouTube channel, I have added the intro to Sid Meier’s Civilization. Not as cinematic as Another World or Epic by any stretch, and not particularly technically difficult to produce either. Well realised, with atmospheric music, it certainly sets the scene for your future of empire building.

Well, there you go. Awful scrolling, well composed but poorly executed music, no attempt at animation. Yet somehow it just works.
