I've decided that it might be interesting for people to read about how I, initially, came up with some of the concepts and nuances of SEAL Team Flix, and then how Mark and I finally came up with the concepts behind the final product.

Good article! I'll make two notes....

1. I actually said "Rainbow Flix", not "Rainbow Six"
2. I designed more than 1 mission!

Jesus christ, I must have met you while you got this started? I was at Avery's house for that thing (slept in the same room with Zev, that man snores).

Also, I poked over to CSI... out of stock already, must have sold through the initial batch. Good luck with this one, I'll probably pick it up for solo play at some point.

Thanks. There were a shitload of people there. I played some stuff with Richard not the least of which was Conquest of Planet Earth, then a game of Magical Athlete with Josh, Billy, and Matt. Played Epic Duels on Steve's bad ass terrain (which made me build my own), and played a wicked game of Formula Racing with Richard's giant cars. I was only there for that day at Avery's house which moved to the clubhousey thing.

Was a good time. Had to work a lot while there, so I ended up stepping out a LOT. Really sucked.

It's out of stock at MiniatureMarket too, but mught be at www.rockinbgames.com/. Brandon is cool as shit and runs a tight ship. Ugly, really bad store layout but he delivers fast and has a lot of gems cheap.

Nah, just checked. He's out of stock too.

AH! Warstore has it: www.thewarstore.com/WizKids-Seal-Team-Flix.html

Here's a question for the devs:

Did you consider going super, madcap, over-the-top in the game design? I ask because the first time I saw the box it looked like a fairly "straight" product, with modern military folks, and a typical setting. Even the "eco-terrorists" looked fairly mild. So I wondered if you considered making the protagonists scenery-chewing badasses with over-the-top 'Murica characteristics (lots of flags, MAGA hats, tobacco chaw, confederate flags, Jesse Ventura in Predator) or if you considered making the eco-terrorists super amped up cartoony caricatures of the "tree hugger" stereotypes.

Knowing Pete's proclivities for no-holds-barred, I was just surprised at the relatively straightforward nature of the theming. Maybe it was a WizKids request not to take it too far over the top?

We had almost no say in the art direction beyond the maps, which as you may have seen, from images of the prototypes, were highly detailed with art.

That said, the design goal was “Call Of Duty/Battlefield” and I wanted to create a legit military simulation crossed with a skill game. Over the top was never, ever on my radar.

In fact, the single most contentious point between Mark and I was on the inclusion of the Acgive Camo, which I am still 100% against. He had so little input into the gear I chose, though, that I had to concede a gimme :D

We never wanted it cartoony, always semi-realistic. There is nothing wrong with the active camo, and Zev loved it. Some future tech is fine.

I still don’t like it as it’s too speculative but if people like it via con Dios. The game is meant to be fun.
