Frontier Developments has always been a favourite of mine, even before I truly followed video games. It was a name I would recognise whenever I saw it, with Rollercoaster Tycoon, the Wallace and Gromit games (Project Zoo and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit), and even LostWinds.
Later games such as Elite: Dangerous, Planet Coaster, and recently released Planet Zoo have catapulted their popularity, but there’s one game that I’ve always had a soft spot for.
During my porting of content to the archive, I came across a post that was similar to a review, but I felt couldn't really be classified as such. I decided to make a new classification in which to fit it, but since I was planning on starting a new series for more informal reviews anyway, this gives me a great time to start Moonlit Critbit.
This series is where I’ll be giving an informal look at games, films, and TV that aren’t part of any other series, such as A Look Inside the Morphing Grid covering Power Rangers.
One of the previous posts I now tag as a Moonlit Critbit is The Series of Ice Age – where I looked at the characterisation in the first two and how it works in the story. While the third and fourth were covered in that post, they weren’t as in-depth as the first two.
