Paradox Interactive has released a seven minute documentary video that goes over their development history, starting with Europa Universalis. From there, the team reveals how each game is connected, and how they try to improve upon their predecessors. Of course, the video serves not only as a look back, but as a look forward as well. Runemaster is the company's upcoming RPG--a first for the studio. The video shows some new footage of the game in action, a procedurally-generated adventure that spans the six worlds of Norse myth.

Hearts of Iron was one of the first games Paradox made, and it's been, ho ho, close to its heart ever since. Having released three expansions for Hearts of Iron III, Paradox today finally announced Hearts of Iron IV. While the WW2 grand strategy series will still be complex as all heck, this time Paradox plans to make the learning curve less terrifying.
