1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / The Longest Journey's Conclusion has a kickstarter project! on: February 10, 2013, 05:28:26 pm
The conclusion to one of the best stories in gaming history, The Longest Journey, is being finished by the original writer and his independent studio. However, they need your help through Kickstarter. If you haven't played The Longest Journey nor its sequel, Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, I highly recommend them. Their beauty and storytelling is an experience you'll cherish for years. To help fund the conclusion visit: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/redthread/dreamfall-chapters-the-longest-journey

Kickstarter might work, but they may need to break away from Toysforbob. The Longest Journey just kickstarted. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/redthread/dreamfall-chapters-the-longest-journey
3  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / Re: Fan made Star Control sequel – how should it be made? on: January 20, 2009, 04:40:44 am
I don't think that a MOD would be marketable.  You would have to go casual gaming and disappoint those who love the series or go all out full fledged storyline, RPG with action (tactical) space combat.  I think it's the storyline that people remember about this game the most.  Besides, the Star Control universe is perfect for a MMO.  Although I am not a fan of them, and the chances of it financially succeeding are slim, it has potential.

I think what the franchise needs is to feel that you are part of the universe.  That there are things within your control, but also events that are not.  You would also want to be able to feel what it would be like to pilot each ship or command them from the bridge of a powerful precursor vessel.  Again, emphasizing tactical combat over real time.

Of course there would be classic melee 2-D style as well.

Anyway, I think that the way games are headed, co-operative play is a must.  So 4 friends coming together, commanding large space battles while also being able to go off on their own missions might be successful. 

Not sure, space genre / sim is pretty stale these days.  Last few projects were cancelled or flopped.  Anything would be a tough sell.

Someday perhaps.

After about 9 months of silence on Toys for Bob's website, they have updated news on a new Star Control sequel.  Unfortunately, it's not yet.  But the good news is that they have a new upcoming project!  Maybe in a few more years we'll have news geared towards our crowd.

I figured that the change probably came when they posted the news event.

I just noticed this.  I'm not sure when they put this up, but the games link on http://www.toysforbob.com/ has changed!

The page always displayed the company's games, but now you can scroll all the way to the right.  Down the corridor there are some Spathi eyes.  Creepy...
