CompatibilityThis game was one of the comparatively rare titles which ran in Windows 3.x but not DOS
DevelopmentDynamix had the original contract from FASA to make MechWarrior. Then when the FASA contract expired, Dynamix was bought by Sierra Online, and FASA went to Activision for MechWarrior II. However, the guys at Dynamix wanted to continue making 'Mech games, so they started the Earthsiege series. The same thing happened with Activision, because FASA worked with MicroProse on Starsiege, and Activision started their own 'Mech series, Heavy Gear.
