I managed to snag Jon Shafer for a few minutes to discuss his upcoming 4X game, At the Gates. We spoke about what makes At the Gates special and unique, the future of 4X and asymmetry, what took the game so long to develop, and what might be in store for the game after release.
I’ll be posting this on YouTube soon, too, along with gameplay of my current run through At the Gates.
Outro music is the At the Gates’ title music. Stay tuned for future interviews from the genre’s most influential developers!
