The team at Foundry 42 is moving in to their new home, and they’ve found some cool prizes to give away in the process! Erin Roberts and his team have been working together on space sims since the early days of Wing Commander, and in the process they’ve acquired some cool collectibles. Today, they’re giving some of them to the community! If you know your gaming history, vote in the poll below. Users who select the correct answer will be entered in a drawing to win one of the prizes listed below.
