At the start of 2012, Bill Thomas began filming one of the Empire meetings. The intention was to create a short video to let people see behind the scenes of the design process and meet some of the the many talented people involved in the game. There is a huge team of talented people hard at work on the game, far too many to include here, even after he split the film into two parts. But if you watch this first film you'll be introduced to some of the key people involved in writing the Empire game setting. We hope you enjoy it and it whets you appetite for more.
