Ok, thanks for clearing that up! I guess the emails were just misleading.
^ Have you even been to Founder's forum?
No, thanks for the link!
I have been waiting so long for a true Star Control reboot. I really hope you guys do the game the justice is deserves. So many games have taken plot lines and character styles from the game without any mention of it. I truly hope this game turns out well.
What is "the great debate"?
I think you'll have to become a founder to get the answer to that.
Impossible. Been dying for a fresh shot of SC for a long time now...
Therefore I simply can't be involved with the early alpha/beta community - Fun as that might be.
Anything coming down the pipe soon?
Is the GDC unveiling still happening? Could not find you under exhibitors or elsewhere in the GDC schedule.
EDIT: Guess not. ;( It's been removed from the schedule.
Founders are getting monthly updates.
regarding the GDC unveiling, that's a good question. would like to know as well.
I purchased the early version, but there is nothing to download in steam yet.
