Haven't heard much news from Microforte recently, but I did find this interesting page on the team that developed their game Fallout Tactics : Brotherhood of Steel, released last year.. The site managed to get an interview with EVERY single one of them! :) Anyway, if you're planning to work at Microforte, here are some of the people you're likley be sitting next to. (I wouldn't want to piss off that Tariq guy though!)
There sure is a lot stirring concerning Citizen Zero, by Microforte.. and I'm not even referring to the developement side! Basically, even though no official announcements have been made, fans and media are a bit up in knots about where they presume Citizen Zero is heading, and developers having to try and calm things down.
