Couple of Project 6014 questions

Post by sakalava47 » Mon Jan 16, 2012 6:33 pm

Does anyone know if the plot is going to involve/answer questions about any of the following?:
1. Precursors
2. Rainbow worlds
3. origin of mrhmrhm's mother ship.
4. Mycon's origin (I actually liked SC3's explanation of their origin).
5. Taalo/Sentient Milieu

Hi!

I'm gonna try and answer your questions without spoiling things too much. Now, we've been thinking this much with the team about the plot:

1. Precursors. We're gonna steer clear of them and not going to try to explain who and what they were/are. It's such a big thing it's best left for the Creators themselves to handle. That is not to say that we wouldn't include some clues to who they might've been...

2. Rainbow worlds. At least there's gonna be more of them ;)

3. Mmrnmhrm mother Ark. Yes... Oh, yes!

4. Not sure. In order to not bloat the game too badly we've had to leave some of the old races out. Currently Mycon are sitting tight under their slave shield, doing nothing. I, too, liked the Mycon story in SC3 - one of the few things I liked in that game - and don't think we have a lot to improve on that.

5. Taalo and some other members of the sentient milieu are gonna have a "Starring", or at least "Special guest star" roles in the full game!

O0-smf <- put that guy there just because he looks cool.

Ha. It's an optimistic aim. Not fantastical, but optimistic. It largely depends on me pulling finger and writing the story in a fashion timely enough to allow everyone else to do theirs jobs efficiently. :)

But Jeez... the end of 2012 is so close now that we're actually in it.
This is too weird.
