@TargetLost: Yep, these are no songs in the conventional sense. This is actually kind of the most prominent hallmark of progressive rock/prog metal. If it followed conventional song structures, it wouldn't be progressive, now would it? ;-) It would be mainstream!

I know the music may appear overwhelming to listeners with little previous exposure to prog stuff. The music is mainly inspired by bands like Star One, Ayreon, Dream Theater, but also Cradle of Filth and Dimmu Borgir. And of course JM Jarre & Kraftwerk.

Cheers,
Helge

Hi space faring crowd,

there's a chaotic pulsating color explosion pretending to be a music video for Unto the Stars. Do not watch if you're likely to have epileptic seizures :-)

There may be videos with ingame-scenes and/or musicians performing later. In the meantime, if any of you would like to create nice looking music videos with ingame-footage (and I meam really nice: filmed to a storyboard, with multiple cameras and so on) and have it posted on the voXager channel, contact me at helge@voXager.de

Cheers,
Helge

Hmm... did I also heard some inspiration from Amon Duul, Karthago, Faust, Can, Neu! (and maybe some Eloy)?

Good work.. :wink:

Well, I used to listen to Eloy a lot. I've got all their albums.

Very nice work! I have a little off-topic question- after asking in a comic- and bookstore they told me that the german novel 'X-Rebirth Plutarch Rising' comes probably at 4/12/14 (ist this correct? english date- in german termination I mean 12. 4. 2014), but internal publisher's information is that it comes this month. Is there a release date you can tell the german fans of your books?

Wait for it... Not only because I want to read, but also to finish the next XRebirth version of the encyclopedia-extension I work on. In the pre-version coming next I already added the halmnan aurora to Albion (for all of you who know the previous mod, its a completely new texture based on a EGO pic which probably shows the aurora), And upgraded planets and whole clusters to fit with some infos from previous books, but I wait for your book to finish the work with all informations...
greetings, MJ Fire

I don't actually know when the novel will come out. I'm still working on it, so this delay is on me, not the publisher...

Ok, then good Luck, waiting for it. The first pages in the Collectors Edition where as good as the other books- and it was funny to read what an old friend of Nopileos does today... :D I look forward to this book.

Viel Erfolg beim schreiben!
greetings, MJ Fire

I was "away" for some times and it's nice too see the update plan on this game is taking the right direction =)

I purchased from Amazon UK yesterday and received a promotional discount. I'm not sure what promotion (I don't think it was personal to me). That made it £6.99, at least for a while. I thought others might like to know.

It's also available now as digipack/double CD album in the Egosoft Shop for €13, if you're into physical media :-) Content is the same as the digital version, but it has great cover artwork by Egosoft's Alex Preuss, and a booklet with sinister photographs of the voXager crew :-)

I prefer digital for my music, and don't mind it for my books either, but I'll for GoG :)

Yeah - nice thing from Alesis. It has been bit above my budget (understatement), and it still is...

Oh well - At least there are some more affordable soft-syths (I love to use the Omnisphere - Trillian - Stylus RMX combo). Still - I would LOVE to get my hands on that Adromeda thingy... 8)

Spacy design- fits to other X boxes in the shelf- exept for the dark and noble XRebirth Collectors Edition hull :D

Other Thing: Because of non corresponding race informations on the X sites, I now tried to create a correct biologic overview over the 5 original races in X-Universe. I tried to look on different anatomic details described in the Books and overviews and fit them with living conditions or evolution history. It's, for now , only in german, because I first want to ask you, Helge, If this fits with your thoughts of the races or if there are details you would work out different (as example, for paranids I created a compromise between the book descriptions and the concept art once was published). After such corrections I would start to translate it into english...
