Chris Roberts--the primary creator of Games such as Privater, Wing Commander and Freelancer is back in action!.
FROM THE CHAIRMAN:
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.
The link is here (and "42" is what will get you in if you get stuck). Go enroll and let this guy know you are interested--this is the original scfi game maker who broke all the rules and did the things no one else would.
I would pay for this game in advance without even knowing what it was.
I believe the link gives you the chance to be an alpha-beta tester for the game during the next two years. I'd highly recommend it.
I also think it would be fantastic if Stardock and Ironclad sent him a note of support (I'm just sayin'...)
Organization system just went live. Now we can form real groups.
Come on ID:
The only "real groups" i will be forming is the holes i shoot into your ships
A smiley face on your engine cowling..
Maybe a frowny face by your bridge...
Definitely an 8 pointed star of CHAOS by your reactors... Muahahahaha!
Bring it baby! Major Stress is the second volunteer for Afterburner Chicken.
DFM Mid April.
Yes, the developer was the genius behind wing commander. And it shows.
*poke* Everyone still excited?
And alive even.
Major Stress: are you trying to say, "THIS IS SPARTA!"?
Holy forum meltdown Batman!
Yes Robin, the down is indeed melted.
He is...the Dark Chicken.
Is the forum broken?? 9 of 10 replies get "jumbled in the server"
I was a suicidal psycho in a caracal in eve online. So anyone playing "afterburner chicken" with me will experience an expensive light show followed by.. WTF happened to my ship?! as they look on imitating Commander Shepard being spaced. Then will hear "THIS IS SPAAAAARTAAAAAA!!!!!" (yes you will hear my scream in a vacuum)
In space, no one can hear ice scream.
It all depends if your com channel is open or not Sinperium. Everyone knows this.
Obviously his comms are down after running into me and getting his ship all shot up.
Yes Stant, it is true...you WILL be doing much dodging.
And there will be waling and gnashing of teeth.....
Oh well, as least in this game you often get to be blown up a few times before you actually die.
So perma death still can happen?
Last thing I heard, is that you can get reconstructed a number of times, and there is special surgery that keeps you going for longer in the one body, but that eventually you expire and pass your holdings and ships onto another character who you also control. I don't know if anything has changed since I heard about that.
Sort of an, "It's just a flesh wound!" sort of thing.
Better than "dead is dead". Least if you want a high level toon you will think twice before ramming someone
I wish physical injury could impact your flying.
