Re: Interview with Fred and Paul on Ghosts of the Precursors

First things first: Thank You very much for this elaborate summary! This sounds much like what I'm expecting anyway. I fear a bit that the target group is too small to make for a successful game, but then this is not the target anyway. I am thankful they want to finish the storyline by adding a SC3...

Re: Updating the website - an idea

Okay, so this isn't 100%, but here's what I have right now so people can take a look. You'll need to unzip it to your hard drive and view the HTML from there. Yes, I realize this is an awkward hosting solution (note that you don't need to register Dropbox to download it): https://www.dropbox.com/s/3...

Interview with Fred and Paul on Ghosts of the Precursors/SC2

http://game-wisdom.com/podcast/creation-star-control-2 No huge revelations, but an interesting listen. Ghosts' development process: Right now it's just the two of them self-funding. After overseeing 150 people they're happy to be taking a more direct hands-on role again. Eventually more people will ...

Re: Origins Melee Beta

oh damn...that's true... forgot about the legal ramification unless we're in the wrong? I've gotten mixed signals about this - I read on signup that it's pretty open as long as I didn't post media, then saw a stricter interpretation from someone else on the project. So I'm erring on the side of cau...

Re: Origins Melee Beta

EDIT: I inquired more about the NDA and decided it was better to remove this.

Updating the website - an idea

Hi everyone, I've been in and out of the community since the late 90s under a few different usernames. Some of you may remember me from #uqm-arena - I made some (very small) contributions to testing and brainstorming for the balance mod a while back.

The idea of the quadrant being run by a corrupt and incompetent semi-empire who are utterly unprepared for the real threat destabilizing the galaxy ...

Re: Ghosts of the Precursors

it's really hard to make a real sequel because the game doesn't dry up well for the general population. the game is too hard, and mineral mining too tedious. and the kohr-ah death march is a thing that is absolutely not done these days. that, and I really hope that they don't make it a kiddy's game...
