EA.com – Build and Destroy; Our Favourite Disasters
The Maxis team have shared their favourite SimCity disasters on a blog post over at the EA website. Personally my favourite has to be either earthquakes or volcanoes. Sure they’re pretty standard, but I love the amount of destruction they bring and the sounds they make. Mwahahaha!
Lead Producer Kip Katsarelis:
My favourite disaster type from SimCity has to be the Giant Monster attack, my favourite one being Servo the Robot attack in SimCity 4. I love sci-fi and giant robots, so naturally the robot attack stands out in my memory. Watching Servo fly into my city, unleash a wave of flying dishes on my poor Sims and then launching up into the sky to go terrorise some other poor city was a real “Wow!” moment for me. Maybe I’m a little twisted, but I can’t count how many cities I’ve built up only to tear down with a disaster. Wait until you see what we have planned in the new SimCity!
