Just an interesting something... Blazing Lizard is a studio founded by 3 ex-Volition peeps, focusing (apparently) on smaller scale Xbox Arcade / PSN / etc style titles such as, er, Pirates Vs Ninjas Volleyball.  However, if you look at the bottom of the page, there's an interesting little possibility;

"A lot of people were wondering what type of game we were going to announce. We had a lot of people who loved Freespace," Stockman said. "If people keep saying make a kick ass space game, that's something we're going to explore."

But given the price of the Freespace IP, Stockman would rather reinvent the series than continue it.

"A new IP 'from the makers of Freespace' has the same effect. This way, we can start with a new story, new characters...the whole nine yards."


Obviously it's not exactly a big piece of news - but it's interesting to see theres still potential for a good FS-style game out there.  Albeit I doubt a small DL-title studio could really do it justice.

Freespace 2 MODing / Help Wanted

Er, hello. :)  Been a while.

Anyways, I'd like to see if anyone is interested in a bit of unpaid, stressful, disorganised work.  On the plus side, you get to see cool stuff.

See http://www.sectorgame.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=44609#44609 - and ignore the digressions into hair length and biscuits.  It's not my fault, honest.
