Africa: E3 2006 Preview

Posted May 18, 2006 by Dana Massey

Africa: E3 2006 Preview

Guest Writer Sean Dahlberg, the Community Manager of Shadowbane (watch carefully for his plug), pens this preview of Africa, based on his interview with Tracy Spaight at E3 2006. The game took home hardware as the Most Innovative (concept) from E3. Find out why.

While attending E3 2006 this year, I had the pleasure of having a sit down with none other than Tracy Spaight, the Vice President of Research and Development at Rapid Reality, LLC. While currently more known for their upcoming title The Chronicle , Rapid Reality has also been working on a design for a new massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) entitled Africa.

So, who is Tracy Spaight? Well, aside from being the VP of R&D, he is also a historian by training and a teacher by profession. Tracy studied history at Santa Clara University, took courses at UC Berkeley, and even went through most of a PhD program at Cornell University. In addition to that, he taught world history for five years, to include African cultures. More importantly, he’s a gamer. Tracy has played on a Commodore, participated in a variety of text-based multi-user dungeons (MUD), and even played on the Great Lakes shard of Ultima Online. He was even a member of the guild Covenant of Swords in Ubisoft’s MMO Shadowbane, which obviously earns him some brownie points with me at least.
