Sequels strife

Ahh, vague omens and mysterious portents. Tangled webs of fate intertwined with the branches of destiny, blown by the capricious winds of happenstance. News, news....uh, actually there is some news!

Same. Wonder how realistic the 2M target is regarding our not so huge fanbase, even as the majority is probably at peak financial potency being 30~40 y.o.

I think they are able to finance it by themselves, if necessary, but it would enable them to gauge the interest for UQM2: GotP. And IF they win, theycan use this money as a starting boost for development.

The more they collect now, the higher interest in their continuation of the storyline is, thus the more commercial risk they could take with their successor.

Perhaps this matter deserves an update on the main "News" Page?

This is.... interesting. Stardock announcing some DLC involving the Chenjesu and Arilou. I think it's just music remixes and not gameplay content but the announcement doesn't specify all that. Interesting that they're actually using the Chenjesu and Arilou names though.

Wardell says he's got the rights to the aliens and music. Isn't that what he was begging ff and pr for in the beginning. Something isn't adding up

He's probably got the rights to the music, since he hired the composer. His right to use the aliens is being contested by P&F in court.

This picture actually shows an Arilou vessel and captain. That doesn't seem right.

They're using the excuse that these aren't the same aliens and you can't copyright a name on its own, so long as there isn't some other resemblance.

I am under impression that *fictional* species names are copyrightable. Same would go to named characters, like Fwiffo or Talana and, perhaps, the captains names from UQM mellee.
