I hope both White Gold & The Precursors, get a proper release. 🙂 I really liked "Boiling Point". It reminded me of the "Midwinter Trilogy" on my trusty Amiga. 🙂

I guess we will only see it if they can find a western publisher for the game. 😥

Never played Midwinter,but Precursors reminds me of Mercenary,must have spent as much time playing that as I did Elite.

They can choose to go, the digital download way. They don't have to publish a boxed product, if its difficult to find a western publisher.

Then you may try this remake if you haven't tried it already:

And if you like to play the Amiga version Midwinter, just send a word 🙂

They could do,but I think the otherforeign language games have all come through western online

publishers so there may be some deal to it?.

This totaly blows. I've been waiting on this game for years, literally years, and now we have to wait for some fans to cobble together an English text translation before we can really enjoy playing? That's if we can get a copy of the game here?

Arrrg, I tell you. AAARGGG.

Boiling Point wasn't that bad, despite being the most buggy game in history. My PC struggled to get a reasonable frame rate out of it though so I gave up after not too long playing. Hopefully the Devs have learned a thing or two about coding games and this new batch wil be worth playing!

My thoughts exactly Stardreamer. I don't know how big the space gaming market is in Russia, but Deep Shadows has to know they can get to more audiences with a translated version. People want to buy this game but it can't found anywhere and a language barrier will deter a lot of them.

Maybe if the devs read the postings on the web about Precursors maybe their minds will change.

Hopefully it isn't a sign of bad news... would be a shame to not see a internationalized Precursors game. I did post on that site last week I thought, but I can't remember.

Looks like the main site down but the forums are still up using this link,although I would

guess they won't be up for much longer.

Updated my download to the latest version of the english patch. Might need to do that if Deep Shadows website dies on us. You would think a company would know when the main page of there website is down 🙂 Or do they care?

Hello all,

A question probably more have asked but will there be an English version in the possible future?

From what I understand from pieces of posts here and there the developer has some problems of its own on the moment but I am not completely sure.

If someone could enlighten me, that would be appreciated.

Right now Deep Shadows was trying to get a publisher to get Precursors into the EU/NA markets. Will it happen.... that i'm unsure with and there forums don't even have any hype on that topic. It's a shame because I think the game would do ok, especially since it was slated to be on PC/Xbox360.
