I can guess that Linden Lab's was the coperation, that was contract working for the Windward Mark, with weapon skins to Alliance. With the time with the alliance project they feelt, that the teaming up was a really succses. So now they have layed their backpacks together. And listen to one of my other great ideas. To make alliance to their running board for future winning game names. Like Alliance, Alliance II, Alliance III. And some more great game ideas. I think this team will be even more stronger. Linden Lab (Skinning + Material FX) and Windward Mark (Atmosfear + Visual FX) and Both (Animination + Super Duper AI)

This deal can make them stronger and Alliance even more better game.
The game will secure the two companies economy and future, for sure.

Amen...

Oh boy.


*long, deep, depressed sigh*


Why would five of the developers leave Windward Mark and join another company that they were merely giving the permission to use the technology to? (at least I hope thats what "giving the rights to Linden Lab" means, not giving the actual patent or w/e to them, because then God knows that they will do with it)

Unless its just temporary move in order to tweak it or what have you, but I doubt it is :S


And yeah, like spm1138 said, congrats on finding a buyer of the technology, but why the whole leaving the company? Wherent there only like 8 guys in it?
Unless they get more people to work on Alliance, I think its future is pretty bleak, and at the very least it would take FOREVER to finish. :cry:

No Ice, Linden Labs wasn't working with Windward Mark in any way related to Allaince. They are just a "customer" that is being given Windward Mark's technology because, after all, they were looking for someone to buy it. I really don't see how this will be benefitial to Alliance at all, and it certainly won't guarantee sequels.

Weak cakes with plenty of weak sauce.

Not only are they selling WindLight, but they're making it OpenSource, thus destroying to originalilty of the Alliance Engine.

I'll send Sox an e-mail to see what's going on.

Exclusivity is what I think you mean, and I seem to have missed why parts of the engine becoming open source is a bad thing.
What would really be sad is if they bought up the rights then sat on the technology so that it would die.

Anyone remember the Reality Engine?

That's too sad. That every company in this crazy world goes for fast money, instead of produce something new in far sight. If Windward had keept only their hands on their Alliance engine. They could build a sequal of games of Alliance and make money and expand their own company. Only on one title of game. Maaaan, so stupied.

Look on Warcraft 2 now or the producing of FarCry and now Crysis. Man they dont sell their ideas. Instead they take risks and build on own ideas and on own basis. CRAP !!! I want to beat up somebody !!!

Our reply kinda deserved its own topic, so you can read it here:
http://alliancethegame.com/community/vi ... .php?t=775

We've been under VERY secretive NDA's for a while, which was why we've been unable to say anything recently. Zain's post above sums up what's been going on pretty well, so any further discussion should probably happen in that thread.
