I hate to be a pest, but...any news on ITE 2?

I don't mind being a pest.

We need to get a web site set-up, send out proper press releases, spit out a new newsletter, etc. Maybe March.

Hey, WyrmMaster!  It's the middle of March!

Beware the ides!

Oh, a few weeks ago, I got it, and beat it in like, two or three days. I loved it! The only thing I regret is that the ending came so abrubtly, and that Shiala didn't join your party. T_T

Yes, it was terribly short.  From what I've read by one of the original creaters there was supposed to be a lot more to the game but the beancounters and business majors got control of the project and pretty much tore the heart out of it.  I hope this doesn't happen with the second part, assuming it's ever made at all.

Um, WyrmMaster?  Are you there?

They should be given the chance to finish it how they originally wanted to. Like, via donations or something.

They could always make an Inherit the Earth: Uncut if they wanted to. Re-make the original game (updating the music, graphics, etc.) and add in all the content that got axed. In fact, I'd almost be more interested in seeing a project like that before an Inherit the Earth 2.

I would love to see the first ITE redone as it was originally intended, (much larger and more adult-oriented) but lord knows what the production costs would be.  Donations?  I don't see a lot of activity on these boards so I doubt that the donations would amount to more than a few drops in the bucket.  There are a number of financially successful furs out there who will pay thousands for artwork that tickles their fancies but I wonder how many of them would be willing to donate money to a game over which they have no control.

One thing is for certain, though:  If Wyrmkeep were to actually release such a game there is a sizable furry fanbase out there just waiting to get their sticky little paws on it.  But I have a couple of important suggestions:

  • First, make an optional "gay" setting so that Riff has a boyfriend and his two companions fall in love with each other during the game.
  • Second, release it in November so that all the unemployed 35-year-old furs who still live in their parents' basements can ask Mom and Dad to get it for them for Christmas.

Both of these should increase sales substantially.

I believe the music is already updated, and I'm okay with having the graphics the way they are. It is, after all, a classic game. Graphics updates can be implemented in future games.

And... lmfao Lymril. Perhaps the gay thing can be an easter egg. An unlockable. Either by adding a -gay flag to the program when running it on a command line or terminal, or by some action or other that nobody would do in a million years unless they looked it up online. Word of the easter egg would spread by mouth amongst those who are dedicated to the game and/or gay enough to know/care about it, while leaving those who are straight and/or not too into it to go on unaffected by the knowledge of such a choice. And if you're concerned about sales, bring it along to every con you can. Can't go yourself? Get someone else who is. Set up booths to advertise/sell it and/or ask for donations for it's further development.

I'm beginning to wonder whether you simply enjoy using furry stereotypes in friendly jest, or actually enjoy teasing us. Tongue Not that the possibility of a "gay" ITE is a tease to me, of course, as there is at least that one furry stereotype that does not fit me. Wink

I've been involved with YiffNet/FurNet for over a decade so I can safely say that I'm as furry as furs come.  I'm not gay myself and I'm not bothered by those who are, though I do find it amusing that the fandom seems to be predominantly gay.  What DOES annoy me is that I used to be able to tell people in RL that I liked Disney cartoons and would occasionally meet someone who liked "Robin Hood" as much as I did.  These days, however, thanks to the bazaar behavior of certain individuals and the media's insistence on drawing the world's attention to them, I find it best to keep my furriness to myself.  I don't need people wondering if they should hide the kids and the pets whenever they see me coming.  So no, I'm not giving furs a bad time because I don't like furs.  I just like to poke fun at certain aspects of the fandom while throwing barbed comments at others.

I knew you were just poking friendly fun. I just got this teasing vibe from it. Teasing in a good way. So I figured I'd tease back a bit, throwing in the fact that I'm not gay as well to anyone who reads closely enough. xP Nor am I bothered by gay people either. I actually feel comfortable around them, and even trusting enough to share a hotel room with two of them at the con I went to.

I think that whatever biological thing makes us more likely to be gay also makes us more likely to have such an affinity for animals. Or so I heard, somewhere.

Even without the persecution that the few crazy furs have earned for the rest of the community, I'd feel too embarrassed to tell people about it anyway. Just, something of a ' they wouldn't understand/care' type of a thing. Luckily though, I've got a clean slate around where I live for the most part, as in most people around here have never heard of a furry in their lives. So if by chance I do find myself revealing what a furry is to someone, I have the benefit of being able to tell them what it's really like. (In fact, when I went to MFF '06, my first and only con so far, my mom told me to have fun at the "fuzzy convention".) In fact, my co-workers know I went to a furry convention in November (MFF), and that the people there love animals and animal characters so much, alot of them dress up in animal costumes. Tongue I figured I'd keep my explanation simple.

I always tell people that furries are similar to Sonic the Hedgehog: humanoid animals that talk. Nobody gives me strange looks after that (especially since it's bleedin' obvious I'm an Anime fan, too). cheesy

So...back to the topic at hand. I'm back to whine. :-/ (Sorry. I just got so excited when I heard about this game because I'm an adventure game buff and ITE is perhaps one of my favorites of all time and so my curiousity about the sequel is pretty intense.) Even if you don't have all your ducks in a row yet, could you maybe tell us how many ducks you have so far? Maybe how far along this duck-arranging is? Whether or not this duck-row might at some point assemble, that sort of thing. You don't even have to give a timeline. Honestly, in my opinion, a vague response would be fine at this point. So...please?

Our plans for Inherit the Earth 2 have changed recently, and the game is currently undergoing a redesign. An important element of the new design is that the game will be released in episodes. Although we hope the first episode will be available in the next year, we’re not going to have an “official announcement” until we have a better idea of the release date.

Ooh.

Something is better than nothing, if I do say so myself.

So is it going to be like, a game engine of sorts, with downloadable episodes? Or will these be patches to the game to add the episodes onto it.

Or will they be separate games?
