      Geraldine, you’re pretty quick on the draw. I wouldn’t want to face you in a shoot-out. ๐Ÿ˜›

      Congrats on getting Salvation Prophecy out to the public Jabberwocky, I hope it does well because you have been working on this for quite some time. Is GamersGate going to do any promos (like ads on the frontpage or email to the subscriber base) to let people know about SP release?

      Hey DarkOne,

      I don’t know much about GamersGate’s process. It is showing up under new releases on the webpage right now.

      I think most of the publicity will be through gaming review sites. I’ve started sending out a few review codes already. Hopefully I get a few bites.

      Didnt I say I was watching your game since you first announced it? <img src='http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//wink3.gif&#8217; class=’bbc_emoticon’ alt=’;)’ /> Anyways what about a GOG release Jabberwocky? Do you think that might be a possibility in the future? Your game is DRM free so it would fit right in over there! <img src='http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//icon_e_smile.gif&#8217; class=’bbc_emoticon’ alt=’:)’ />

      Hey guys,

      I just got back online. Massive storm took out my power grid..

      It’s kind of a mad rush trying to catch up with everything – but thanks for your comments and thoughts.

      Yep, if you play the demo, when it’s done it’ll auto-save, and you can continue where you left off in the full game.

      Yeah, I like GOG a lot. That might happen. The whole business side of things is way tougher than you’d think it would be. Especially for a guy who loves making games, but hates business stuff. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      It was just a thought as according to my Spacesim-o-meter รขโ€žยข, I picked up quite a few blips over there around the releases of the Freespace, I-War and the WC games. There is a healthy contingent of fans of the genre on the boards there, plus it gives you another outlet for your customers to get the game. Of course, like you said it does have to make business sense first. If you want a dev's view on GOG, I suggest you ask one of the guys who made Grimrock. Their game is on there as well as Steam. Perhaps one of them might be able to advise you? Link: http://www.grimrock.net/blog/

      Anyways, I hope your game does well <img src='http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//icon_e_smile.gif&#8217; class=’bbc_emoticon’ alt=’:)’ />

      congrats jabberwocky! one more title for me.

      might it be possible to acquire the game without the use of clients like gamersgate and the like? i would very much wish to buy a version I could be free t install/reinstall on my internet-less gaming computer… thank you!

      You can easily backup games purchased from Gamersgate yourself. Just wait until the client has finished downloading your game of choice, then look for a folder called ‘Gamersgate Temporary Files’ (usually in the same directory as the launcher executable) which should contain another folder which has the DRM-free setup files.

      It is much easier than it sounds and is what I do to backup all of my games purchased from there.

      You have to copy the setup.exe away during install. While the installer runs, Gamersgate’s launch file in the temporary files folder is renamed to it’s original (.exe) name.

      Yes, this is the best way to do it. I should perhaps have specified to not close the installer before copying the files. Even if you did, though, you could always just rename the file yourself (provided you told the client to keep the files and have file extensions enabled in your Windows Explorer).

      Wow, this place is sure looking spiffy! Nice job on the site design, DarkOne.

      Thanks fadrad and deepseaweed for the GamersGate instructions. The game was intentionally sold DRM-free so people could reinstall it as they see fit. But it looks like there's still a couple hoops to jump through.

      Thanks PINBACK!

      I don't know how many publishers would be interested in making a boxed version for an indie space game. But I'll keep an eye out for any good opportunities.

      Thanks Jabberwocky. I hope Salvation Prophecy is meeting your expectations so far after release, do you see any deals happening with Steam or any of the other digital download websites? I know Amazon sells digital downloads as well. Want to see it do well so we can see a sequel or at least some DLC/new areas/factions.

      I will try to get a review out soon, I just have been busy with the site. But a lot of the game is still fresh in my mind so I can least write informatively <img src='http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//icon_e_smile.gif&#8217; class=’bbc_emoticon’ alt=’:)’ />

      Cool.

      Also I really appreciate your feedback on the faction command aspect of the game D1. I think I was able to fix a lot of those issues for the initial release.

      Man, what a time to come out. Summer is the absolute busiest time of the year for me. I'll pick it up soon, but I don't see myself playing it for a while. Hope its selling well!

      Congrats on the ratings Salvation Prophecy is getting on GG, it has 4.5 stars overall rating and comments are all really positive thus far. I hope that is helping the cause and getting more people to purchase.

      Thanks for the tip, pinback. I've heard Iceberg Interactive being involved with a couple other cool spacey projects.

      And thanks for getting a review up D1, much appreciated! <img src='http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//icon_e_smile.gif&#8217; class=’bbc_emoticon’ alt=’:)’ /> It was a good read.

      I would have gotten further in-depth, but I hate giving away plot lines and end game content to people <img src='http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//icon_e_smile.gif&#8217; class=’bbc_emoticon’ alt=’:)’ />

      I hope that SP is selling good enough for you that it was worth the few years effort, I just hope you can get SP on a few more digital download sites.

      Yeah, I've been really happy with the gamersgate user reviews. There's also been a smattering of other recent reviews which have been fairly positive:

      http://www.outofeight.info/2012/07/salv … eview.html

      http://squadronofshame.wordpress.com/20 … pc-review/

      http://www.smradlavytucnydee.com/2012/0 … eview.html

      And again a big thanks on the ssc review!

      I'm still working to get the game out to more review sites. Once a game is done, there's not much that's more important than making sure people know about it. <img src='http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//icon_e_smile.gif&#8217; class=’bbc_emoticon’ alt=’:)’ />

      Cool, thanks Neagoth! I'm really happy to hear you're enjoying it. That's one of the best things about making games! <img src='http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//icon_e_smile.gif&#8217; class=’bbc_emoticon’ alt=’:)’ />

      Great Arthur C. Clarke quote in your sig, btw.
