I worked at Garage Games for a while. One project that I was assigned to was the second iteration of what eventually became Fallen Empire: Legions
My experience working on this project was... well... you know that group project you did in high school where you did all the work while the other people in your group fucked off? Imagine that except the people fucking off are the group leaders and the teacher is constantly berating you for not listening to them. Meanwhile people in all of the other groups are constantly changing your groups project design. Also every time you decide to actually get some work done, you have to have a 2 hour meeting where the teacher accuses you of being a loose cannon.
So I made this prototype in a few weeks, by myself, while under protest from all of my bosses. The art is all placeholder garbage, but it does have functioning gameplay - it's a zone capture mode where you take the single neutral flag (a glowing rectangle in the center of the map) around to each of the 5 bases, converting them to your team's color. It also has CTF, but there's no map for it in the download.
