Of course we have the same feelings.  I don't think TFB has any money problems; they're just waiting for Activision to give the thumbs up on making the new Star Control game.  In any case, I would donate something if I could.

As long as TFB is allowed to take their time to make sure that everything is done right with the new Star Control game, and have full control over what they're doing, I don't care who publishes it. Cheesy

Star Control rules!

Has anyone heard any news about this? Personally, I'm surprised Activision hasn't jumped on the chance for another SC sequel... i don't buy the whole 'not enough interest" line... I mean, seriously folks, look at some of the crap that's passing itself off as video games these days... If they can publish wave after wave of junk... then surely a TRUE SC sequel should be able to find a home....

Anyways, has anyone thought of emailing T4B and finding out what's going on, if anything?

In the last IRC chat, they said that they were working on a project which was not TFB. That project has not been announced yet, so it's safe to say that they're still working on that.
When that is behind them, maybe SC2+1 may get another chance.

if mass effekt will be a succes, maybe that will convince them that der is enough interest for a
sc sequel. i whould not mind if they whould not realy do it as a sequel, but as a new game.
(like i think they wanted to do with starcon. at least, sc2 is so old that few people know it)

excuse my spelling, my english isnt that good

By means of "Not enough interest" I suppose they mean that there aren't enough money-draining dunce-gamers that are willing to buy crap in the market for 60 bucks that can handle an intelligent game like Star Control.

Though from what I saw of Mass Effect (on G4 and whatnot), I fear that only a few gamers that are real gamers (and are not limited to only PS3, XB360, or Wii experience; and have PC experience as well as Dos) actually play this game. Others (by a generational scale) however, are opposite, and think they are gamers, whereas all they know is XB360, PS3, or Wii; nothing more, nothing less.

Remember, the world (or at least the America market) is full of morons that laugh at the movie "Meet the Spartans" and religiously watch VH1 and E!. If anything intelligent, witty, or I dunno... New comes into the market, executives would fear people will rebel against them and destroy the machine that is sales.

Wait a second, executives of companies are the Ur-Quan!!! Or at least, the Khor-ah. Original content almost bankrupt them before by free thinkers, so out of fear, they either enslave (or sue) them, or eradicate them. And the profit machine, is the Sa-Matra. Destroy that, they collapse.

Maybe I played a bit much Starcon to notice this.


My only hopes left are in the fact that retro stuff is being remade (Transformers, Speed Racer, Alvin and the Chipmunks), and as well, XBOX360 and it's arcade and other retro release stuff should eventually release Starcon; hopefully. Hell, even Lemmings got re-released for the PSP. When either Sony or Microsoft accept, and Activision notices the numbers boost (at least because of the morons that don't know better about UQM), then that should help boost fandom back to convince Activision to give the thumbs up.

Sound like a plan, or a gleam of hope? If anything can convince Activision, it would be sales from consoles or download number masses from UQM. Unfortunately, it would have to be in the millions if you expect them to take a glance.

I don't that think anyone has claimed that there is not enough interest.

hmm... if the problem consists only of having not enough money to make and release a new game,
how much whould it take? im pretty sure that if everyone who reads this forum whould spend some
money, that could be enough. i whould not realy need the game to be for nowadays technical standarts.
if it whould just be like sc2 i whould be totally pleased. am i alone with that opinion?
i dont need high-end-graphics. in fakt, i have even lots of fun playing populous 2 nowadays.
(yes, i mean populous 2 not b&w 2 Tongue)

Uh, no. Unless there's a stealth mogul in the midst, that is completely wrong. Some fans on a relatively low traffic internet forum would not be able to afford the bill.

Hello guys

I'm Toni and i'm new here... I read forum from a long time but today i decide to register.
First i want to tell you that i'm so happy that here i can find so many fans of that great game!
My English is not so good but i hope you will understand me.

i'm 3D Artist and work in game industry from a long time ...

Unfortunately with every next game on market (allmost) i feel so sad ... Games without any ideas ... short lenten gamplay ... stupid storyline...

i start to replay old school games becouse feeling from them is 10 times deeper than new one!

Striving to be maded game with great FX and graphics is not the right way ... Thay cannot make the whole game thay are only part of all ...

I prefer to play a good game with not so great graphics then beautiful stupid games ...

I read in upper posts suggestion that i write too in my petition:
WE the true fans of star control series can collect some money and help to remake this game!
To be maded 3D game with 2008 requrements is hard .. we need to much money to collect...
But we can make this :

I think that new Star Control 2D version is not a bad idea ... This is game that is for hard core gamers like us ... we can make this compromise.

Graphics in 1024x768 maded professional - is good enough for GREAT look
Music in that original style like SC2
STORYLINE - very important part Wink

The most important thing is to save the exact feeling like SC2 ... sometimes creators change their thinking and feelings through the years...

If WE are serious we can collect money and we can give a start of that project!!!
If WE start
many many more will join US

We must speak with creators of SC2 - howmuch money we need to finish that our DREAM

If the project is serious many 2D and 3D artist will help US i'm sure!!!

i'M IN TOO!!!

General planning we can make after we receive information from Creators of SC2 howmuch money we must collect ...

I hope you will understand me
and i hope more people will thing the same like me!
