BoMB – Band of Maniacal Brothers

A collector of classic games and rare items who goes by the nickname Siberian GRemlin obtained a very early build of Red Alert through a contact of his. The real source of this discovery is unknown; it is quite possible this was an early QA or Playtest build for an event like E3 from 1996.

Five C&C enthusiasts (CCHyper, Nyerguds, Tore, TaxOwlBear and Chad1233) decided to band together and obtain a real treasure in C&C history and share it with the whole C&C community; they decided this was something the community really needed to experience and explore, so they contacted Siberian GRemlin, and came to a deal, so they could share this treasure!

WOW.

EA (booo, hissss) has finally done something right, and is bringing members of the original Command & Conquer team back together to remaster the original Command & Conquer game (a.k.a. C&C 1995 or Tiberian Dawn) as well as C&C: Red Alert and C&C 2: Tiberian Sun!!!

They got the rights to the original source code, they got back a number of the original designers and programmers (now working at Petroglyph Games), and they even got back Frank Klepacki to do the music! The one constant throughout the entire series, Joe Kucan (the actor for Kane), has also confirmed his involvement!

This is epic news. EPIC, I SAY.

The original C&C in 1995 was the single game that got me into gaming. I was singularly obsessed with it. Now, decades later… after having run a gaming clan for 15+ years and having played just about every game you can think of… I was so sad to see the video The Rise and Fall of Command & Conquer.

Thanks very much to GVMERS for making it, but it brings a tear to my eye knowing just how many cancellations happened, and I really wish the developers (many studios that they were) had gotten the chance to work on a truly GREAT game until completion. I think my favorites from the series were the original C&C and Red Alert 2…
