Wow… can this game do the dishes? The laundry? It’s got everything I love about different facets of Sci-Fi all packed into one neat package.
A few of us have been waiting for this one. There was another game called Blackstar that I have given up on the devs never respond to email and status hasn’t been updated in months. But it had the same style of game concept. But Precursors is really looking good and this game is also seeking a publisher because it was supposedly suppose to ship in 2008 🙁
Just looked over their White Gold part of their forum and depressingly
it looks like Deep Shawdows have gone belly up.
Oh, that’s sad if true. Precursors had bags of promise. I was really looking forward to it, dangit. 🙁
Still, one has to wonder if the quality of the game would have ruined the experience as it did for Boiling Point. No-one who has played that title could look at either Precursors or White Gold without a shiver of apprehension running through them. We may have just dodged a bullet…
If the developer does happen to go belly up, if they don’t have a publisher what would stop them from releasing the code to open source? I know that is a pipe dream, I just hate seeing some great work go to waste because of $$$. I can see how it can be rough though, if you don’t have some good financial backing behind your effort you will never get the word out so people know about your game to get people to buy/play it.
Yeah I read that in the forums the other day but it isn’t official as far as I know so I guess there code be some hope 🙂 Hate to see good games die, this is when I think releasing code to the community and have them finish it. The game looks pretty complete already.
I thought they were supposed to release it in Russia in Oct? That would at least make me feel better because then maybe the developer could provide access for us to translate the game by editing some files.
Good news. The Russian version comes out on 4th of December. No mention of the international release though. Time to learn Russian comrades. 😀 😀
