This site is from a game company I worked for in the late ’90’s. It was taken down after its company closed shop. I saved a complete copy, which you can view below.

This was my first commercial site. I was the lead designer on this project so I made all the game rules and wrote the documentation, too.

It will look a little weird on today’s monitors. Giant widescreen displays were science fiction back then, and there was nothing like responsive design to help out. This project took up a big piece of my life, though, and was very important for my career. Shortly afterward I moved from Ottawa to Seattle after I had several job offers. I doubt this would have happened without the work I did on Fortunes of War, so I want to preserve this last remnant of the game on my site. Fun times, good people, and a great mentor who changed my life’s direction.
