So, for all those fans of space sims - but especially those who may have enjoyed titles such as Wing Commander and (my favourite) Freelancer... good news! I should have posted this several days ago when there was just a timer - but I didn't know what it'd reveal and so didn't want to start making posts. But now the timer has gone!

http://robertsspaceindustries.com/start/

If you can work with Binary - just enter it's value... or enter an answer and get a ? prompt which should help out Very Happy

Welcome!

If you’ve made it here, you probably know who I am. Maybe you have heard of Wing Commander and its sequels, or perhaps Strike Commander, Privateer or Freelancer.

If not, you’re still welcome!

I grew up making video games. I sold my first game at the age of 13 and created Wing Commander when I was 21. But 10 years ago, at the height of my career I took a break. Not because I stopped loving or playing games but because I had become frustrated with the limits of the technology at the time to realize my vision.

I decided to pursue my desire to create detailed worlds and tell sophisticated stories in film.

I always said the moment I became interested in making games again was when I was going to come back.

With the power of today’s computers and the reach of the internet I finally feel I have the tools to build the connected experience that I always dreamed of. A world that would be more satisfying and richer than any film I could work on.

With films you tell stories but with games you create worlds.

If you’ve played my games, you’ll know that’s what I love to do.

I’m here to tell you that I have been working on something for just under a year, something that embraces everything that my past games stood for but takes it to the next level.

I hope you’ll be as excited by it as I am.

My new endeavor is still in its early stages but I invite you to take the journey with me.

If you register below you’ll become an insider that will not only give you early access to the game’s website and forums, but you will also get the opportunity for rewards and privileges that no one else will get. It’s my way of showing how important your early involvement and support is.

The full announcement will be at 10am Eastern Standard Time (UTC -5) on the 10th day of the 10th month of this year.

My name is Chris Roberts.

And if you would indulge me I would like to create a world for you.


I am super excited Very Happy

Hope other lovers of the Space Genre are similarly happy with this announcement Very Happy I am sooo happy - i had to share Smile

DANGER DANGER! This line just screams MMORPG.
In which case not interested. Thanks but no thanks.

On the other hand if it isn't Hopefully it might be something good.

Your not going to wait and see what's in the game? I don't get why you would blow off an entire game just because it may belong to the MMO genre. I don't get that at all...

Um, because he doesn't like the MMO experience? Some people (me included) are not in the least bit interested in dealing with random abusive/cheating people or the general type of gameplay which seems necessary to get anywhere in an MMO game.

You may see them differently, and/or experience them differently, and that's fine. This sounds like it might be a great game for you.

Oh man I have hoped He would return.

If its MMO I will take a Look,but here is to hoping its some kind of super lan Multiplayer type setup.
He did say something about feed back so maybe mkost will beg off the MMO and go for a lan type game

I wouldn't mind a kind of hybrid setup - don't really care for the economy of an MMO, but the player presence and social atmosphere is very much desirable.

If ends up like Freelancer's online set up that's fine. i.e. single player, with optional online PVP systems.

And I suspect Robert's will borrow from the stuff the modding community did with Freelancer vs PVP, with guilds, clans + private stations and as many players as the hardware can support Wink

Never liked any of his games. In my eyes he's overrated.

A much bigger problem seems to be that he's just starting.

If we're lucky, there might be a game five years from now. If Mr. Roberts manages to find some funding Wink

No, he is talking about 24 months


More Infos about Roberts plans in this article .

About money:
I think CR could find some money with the new crowdfunding possibilities of the internet. WC-players (and Freelancer vets also) are 20 or 10 years older, have better jobs, more money, and good memories of the 'good old times' => cash opportunity.

EDIT:
Found this on the new site (Time Capsule-tag)
Dr. Scott Childress and his team had completed the first self-sustaining quantum drive engine, capable of achieving 1/100th the speed of light. For the first time, humanity could explore the solar system with unprecedented speed.

I got my golden ticket yesterday, and started reading around.

The MMO vibes were so strong that I'm already put off. If it is a MMO then it is a non-starter for me.

Nothing against MMOs, it's just not what I'm looking for in a game. I don't like monthly payments, and I want to be able to come back to a good game after a long break without re-upping on a subscription, or feeling like the universe has moved on to another game while I was away.

Just not what I'm looking for.

Yeah I don't like MMO's either, they just aren't personal enough and can't be modded either (among many more reasons).
