If you weren't able to make it to the inaugural PAX South last weekend then you missed the Firaxis Megapanel, which included a live Starships demo from creator Sid Meier himself! We were sad you didn't make it, but we guess we can forgive you.
We filmed the panel, which spoke a bit about the connections to Beyond Earth with co-lead designers David McDonough and Will Miller prior to Sid jumping into the live demo. Sid Meier's Starships is set in the same universe as Beyond Earth and takes place hundreds of years after Beyond Earth's endgame.
So feel free to watch the video embedded in this post. If you want to jump directly to gameplay, just click the annotation near the beginning of the video.

Today, the folks at Gamespot posted an interview with legendary game designer Sid Meier. The interview goes into the development of Starships and how Sid wanted to get back to "a method of making games that really focused on game design, that allowed us to spend most of our time designing and maybe a little less of our time on all the other stuff needed to make games."
