October Ramblings

It's nice to see that there are people that are still interested in PK3's development even though the game has been in development forever. For those of you wishing that Santa would bring PK3 as an x-mas present this year, I have disappointing news, since there in no way the game will be ready this year, or even next year. We've done so many changes to the engine since the beginning of PK3's development, that the game's scripts pretty much need to be rewritten from scratch. We've also come to realize the magnitude of the entire project and that it's probably too big and ambitious for such a small team. So the game needs to be rethought in a way that we can actually get it done with the very little resources and time we have. And since we seem to have a bad(?) habit of doing all sorts of smaller side projects, there is no way I could give the game any deadline. All I can say that it's ready when it's ready.

I'm very dissapointed, because you will not relase this game in year 2009, but I will still wait for PK3.

And one small quest. - How much colours will have got PK3?(I think that PK2 has got 256 colours, so how much in PK3)

Ok then. The question is why don't you recruit some new members? I'm sure there are plenty of skillful people out there who could contribute. So that would increase the overall speed process.

You may release the editor next year. A closed beta would be nice. It's not needed to be public or something, just for the people who's willing to test it. That's what I'm hoping now.

That is not a bad idea Ivan, i will talk to Janne and we might end up just releasing the toolset so people can start getting familiar with them

Yeah, right Ivan.
I want to help you too, but I'm not too good at programing, rather in graphics. I think drawing sprites or tiles.

So, if you will need my help with these things, tell me guys, but after next week. I'm going to transfer an operation.

I have talked to Janne. Next year i will be releasing the Piste Gamez Studio to the public. That way people can start playing around with it and get familiar. That way by the time PK3 comes out, people will be already familiar with it. Also like i mention in the beginning, you guys will be able to also create your own game using the tools.
