I had one of those boring nights when I didn't have anything to do. So I decided to check up some old websites to see if there was anything new. I then remembered this awesome game which I wished was released and whose website I would always visit even during the quiet times. You can imagine my surprise when I saw that Alliance was back!

We're behind you guys! You got a loyal fan base which desires nothing but this amazing game to be released. We already all know how awesome the concept is and we wish you all the best of luck! We'll help you out to the best of our abilities!


PS: Will you release another teaser trailer for the game soon? The first one was so epic that I must have watched it more than 200 times.


Thanks man, really means a lot. We'll get something together as soon as humanly possible. Right now, we're almost in reverse mode from before. Then, it was all about developing the art assets and technology to showcase what we were after, mostly to impress publishers and catch their eye. Translation: not as much game logic code was written :). Now, we're honing the gameplay mechanics and are going to come back around for the visual + tech pass. In other words, our latest is really smart and kind of ugly :). We wanna wait till something representative of the whole package is ready before we show anything!

Oh, also, it might put me in a bit of an awkward situation here, but if you really wanna help out, there's a little linky there in my signature. Just sayin'.... :)

Don't worry, it doesn't 8-) . At the moment, I'm in an awkward situation where I'm all the way on the other side of the globe from where I live and so I don't have access to some of the basic things which I had access to at the beginning of the summer. My situation should improve next week when I can go back home!

It's been 3 years, yet I'm shocked at how many names here instantly take me back. I know I said it before, but man is it great seeing the lot of you here! :)

Hehe, you're lucky that today's my birthday and so I decided to check my old e-mail address otherwise I probably wouldn't have heard of you again...

Gotta update my profile... It's been a damn long time since my last activity here.

Cheers 8-)

That's understandable. It's asking a lot of someone to just say, "hey, fork over some $$, we're making a game, we promise!"

Unfortunately it may be a bit before we have something. But I certainly understand your view.

That said, one of the reasons we put in the $1 option was to try and make a completely painless (or as painless as possible) option for those who just wanted to donate a token amount. That way, if we are planning on running away to the Mexican Riviera, you'll know that when we'll get our margaritas from the bartender, he'll go "$2 please" and we'll go "damn.... HimmelHund!!!!!!!" and there will go our vacation :)

I really would like to contribute, but I have had no luck finding a job. If I had found a job a couple weeks ago as I thought I would, that $500 button would have definitely been my next stop. :) Heck, I have been so excited about alliance, I probably would have donated more. For me, alliance was my gaming dreams came true.

I'd love to contribute to the pot but having not had a job since i left uni in 08 things are tight.

Glad to see alliance is back in dev. Hope you use renderable smart objects for the AI nodes cuts down on time placing AI nodes when you want NPCs moving to cover.

My god... Its full of stars..

Errr I mean: My god is it true... The game that should've been.. might yet be?

Welcome back guys. The gaming industry needs you. Badly. I went to go buy ammo the other day at walmart, and the kid they sent over to unlock the case, couldn't help but talk about Call of Duty.. and then proceeded to give me gun buying advice based on his gaming experience. **shudder**

Try getting ammo at Dick's - usually a better selection and somewhat more informed clerks, and there's usually one near every WalMart!

Man, I checked my old email and caught this and its great you guys are getting back on top of this. I have to say though, this whole thing keeps reminding me of the scene in Anchorman where after Ron's fired he runs into the news team on the street. I feel like the news team! I don't know if I can be let down like that again! I'm totally in though.

Welcome back Beryl 96!

I feel like the Dread Pirate Roberts. Back from the dead, plotting with Inigo and Fezzik, and ready to storm the castle with a cart and Miracle Max's holocaust cloak.

Inconceivable!

So, excited for this!! Honestly didn't think it was going to happen, but now I'm just like a 14 year old boy in the woman's locker room haha! A lot has happened since 2006, but you have my support entirely ....but I expect tickets to E3 for the new trailer for the world to see :p.

I'll donate what I can when I can, and hope to help testing and promotion as much as possible!

Good to see some old faces around here as well.

And a BigDaddy appearance! Now the band really is getting back together! :)

Dibs on not being Ringo.

I should have made an epic appearance with a cape, fireworks, and blazing guns but I decided to go in a little less flashy :D

All that and no fedora or Stetson? You and I have incompatible definitions of epic, my friend. :)
