I Am Joe Bostic, 22+ year game developer (11 years at Westwood Studios, 9 years at Petroglyph), Designer and Co-Founder of Petroglyph. AMA
I was part of the team that created Dune II and Command & Conquer games which started the RTS genre. Before that, I was a big fan of tabletop wargaming. Ask me anything about the start of the RTS genre, Dune II, C&C, Westood, Petroglyph, or even about old-school wargames.
I couldn't answer your quesions about Victory before, but I can now. The game is released as a Kickstarter project. Check it out at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/petroglyphgames/victory-1
