I was wondering about this myself.  What is an "episode"?

Each episode will be a complete game and story, but with subplots that may be resolved in a later episode.

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?

Although this hasnít been entirely determined, it is most likely that each episode will be its own separate game based on an ever improving game engine.

As far as I can tell, and I assume that this is what they are going to do.. This episodic content will be similar to the recent releases from the Sam & Max: Season 1 series of games. Each game coming as a stand alone package. With each episode being a stand alone story but also with an overreaching story arc.

Whatever comes out it will be interesting to see.  It will be nice to see a little more traffic on this board, too.

Hey there!  smiley

I'm new here (obviously) and as a fellow adventure gamer (MI anyone?) and animal lover I just wanted to say that I'm absolutely exited about the news that there's going to be an ITE sequel. Thanks Wyrmkeep for keeping this wonderful adventure game (the very first I've ever played, actually and I replayed just about a day ago) alive!

The episodic system sounds too, and it works quite well as I can tell from expierence (yeah, I'm playin' Sam n' Max as well Wink

I am begging youm WyrmMaster, PLEEZE do not let this become another Legend of Zelda; Twilight Princess. They delayed that game for a year and a half! I was so excited to hear the prospect of an ITE2, but all these delays have started to sour me. Is there any way that possibly some sort of unfinished beta copy could be released, or something like that, just to keep me from going insane?
*Real ITE Geek takes over the computer again* sorry about that....my schizophrenic twin brother..umm...yeah. Anyway, I would like to see some sort of evidence that this is official...outside of things like AnthroCon, because I have no means to get there. Something like an announcement on G4....just a thought.

I think we would all like to see something like that, but as it stands I dont think they have even gotten so far as to have any kind of working code much less completed the design stages of the project.

All I can say is Good things come to those who wait... hmm no..  Patience is a virtue?  bah you get the idea im sure Cheesy

First off....  this n00b doesn't want this to "become another Legend of Zelda; Twilight Princess. They delayed that game for a year and a half!"

Well, I think it has been longer than that for ITE 2, I know I, personally have been waiting for over a year.  And seeing as the first one came out 13 years ago, I think it goes without saying that ITE 2 has likely at least been in people's minds for nearly that long.  However, a loyal follower of all things ITE, and otherwise furry related, I stand by, waiting;  Assured that I won't be let down......I won't, will I?  ...Will I?  WyrmMaster?

Edit after some digging:  Perhaps, it's longer than I thought!  I thought that ITE came out in 1994, but according to Talin's (of The Dreamer's Guild) website, the year listed is 1985!!!  It says right here (http://www.sylvantech.com/~talin/programs.html).  I can't conceive that to be true.  This instruction manual clearly says "Copyright 1994 New World Computing, Inc."  However, he was one of the top programmers on the project, so who am I to say he's wrong.

To begin with:

Hello from Australia.  In brief I am, of all things, a veterinarian, as well as a musician and a writer who enjoys anything (of quality) that features animals or anthros.

I just had the chance to play the original game (or re-release on CD, so not quite the original), and thoroughly enjoyed it.  I like such games in the vein of Monkey Island, so it was nice to play a purely furry game.

I'm looking forward to the next installment of Inherit the Earth, irrespective of the style or rendering format it will be in (2D or 3D, or both), and personally I think releasing the game in episodes is a good idea.  Don't be in too much of a hurry to rush something out; for what I understand you are a relatively independent game company, so I can appreciate that money isn't something you are up to your armpits in.  I think we all can patiently await each episode, knowing that giving you the time to iron out the bugs will make for a much more enjoyable gaming experience Smiley

As someone else already mentioned, I would be willing to make (monetary) donations if they would help.

As for the orientation of the game... well, personally, I found the original game to be lacking a little (not that I blame the developers, as I know how the original game was "re-realised" for a younger audience), and thus I hope that this game will have a more mature slant to it.  By mature, I do *not* mean sexual, at all.

Anyway, irrespective of how the final product will be, I am looking forward to it.  There aren't nearly enough quality anthro games around, which is a pity.

Cheers!

As someone who was crushed to find out that there was not a sequel to Inherit the Earth thirteen or so years ago when I was ten, I got very excited about the prospect of a sequel. However, as someone who has also been checking up on this possible sequel for quite some time now, even my patience is wearing thin. Sometimes the odd update (not necessarily giving a timeline), no matter how vague, can be just enough to keep someone like me from giving up altogether. So if it does by some magical force of magicky magic actually materialize, it's entirely possible that normally quite patient individuals (there have been several games I've waited years for) such as myself might not even notice that the sequel has come out because we no longer even think to check to see if it's out.

So--and I'm not trying to be a jerk here--I think that even a scrap or two now and then would be a wiser business decision than the deafening silence you currently seem to be employing as your marketing strategy.

Also, one quick question: Is the game (should it every come into existence) going to be geared towards people of the furry persuasion. I honestly hold no prejudice against furries, but (warning: another nugget of business "wisdom") I think it would be unwise to limit yourself and the game in such a way. I understand that furries are probably a pretty safe section of your consumer base, but do keep in mind that adventure game fans (like me)--especially those who have fond memories of ITE--are also part of that consumer base and are probably a good bet to buy the game.

OK, I guess that's all. Again, in case the tone of the post seems a bit hostile, I assure you that it is not meant that way at all. Thank you.

I think maybe we should give WyrmMaster a break, ya know. Another way to look at this: you keep bugging someone about something and they're only going to feel forced into doing it. Making a game is hard work. When we continue to pester them for a game, they'll either begin to resist the idea of making one, or they'll rush their progress. In either case, the results aren't pretty. Just let them go at their own pace. Subscribe to this topic (or an IE2 update topic or something) so WyrmMaster can keep us informed of the news rather than us trying to squeeze every bit of news out of him/them that we can.
