Group DescriptionMike Singleton and Maelstrom Games developed the first Midwinter game, a combination of strategy and first-person action game set in a future where an asteroid has caused global cooling.
The sequel, Flames of Freedom, was a much larger game spread over a series of islands.
Both could be considered forerunners of the modern sandbox game.
