Trivia

In the designer diaries of Close Combat III, programmer Keith Zabalaoui calls it a miracle that this game was eventually released. Not only was it Atomic Games' first game, but the three main designers had different artistic vision and motivation. Keith wanted to make a game that people could play and understand. Ed Rains wanted to make a hard-core scholarly simulation, and Larry Merkel just wanted an enjoyable pastime that might make some extra cash.
