Thanks for that. Could be something for me and my GF when we're looking to play something relaxing.

Development on the new System Shock has been paused

TheRiddickI heard their also commissioned to produce System Shock 3??? did I read that correctly somewhere?
I love system shock so I hope they get this remake done and do it justice, and are able to make system shock 3.
No, SS 3 is being developed by Otherside Entertainment.

There's no real connection here - other than the franchise, obviously.

HendrinMckayNot good news at all. Not in the game development industry but am a programmer. Anytime a project I've worked on is put on hold that usual spells the end of it. It's just too hard to have a team go back a month or two(or more) later and try to pick up where things left off.

I hope I'm wrong, I really do.
Nah, you're not wrong. I have the same experience. The money is gone, obviously, after all this time.
The only chance for them is to find some external money source and start over from scratch.

And when has that ever happened successfully?
At best, we're looking at a Duke Nukem Forever situation here.

15$ for some hope is a good deal

TheSHEEEP"Professional" journos liked the game somewhat because they never really play games for long and are mostly just amazed by pretty or pretentious things.
Yeah, good old conspiracy theories about magazines getting paid for producing free advertising.
How did you even get the conspiracy theory out of that statement?
Maybe put the tinfoil hat back into the shelf, it seems to obstruct your view.

Spud13yFrom this I learned that there's going to be an Age of Empires 4 and my heart aches because Microsoft owns it
Yeah, that is the worst takeaway of this whole situation.
Who knows what they're going to do to the series...

But AoE being Windows-exclusive is not really news. It has been since the inception of the series.

omer666So the rampant negativity won in the end. Well, whatever...
There's no rampant negativity here.
Just a game that's all-around pretty underwhelming, developed with a mystifying lack of vision or understanding of what people actually liked about the previous games and design decisions that are borderline inane (mobile-junk-like unit unlockables in my RTS game, no thanks).

Even developers themselves are aware of that.

Summer Islands strategy and simulation game will see Linux support (updated)

Holiday Island was one of my favourite games growing up.
The sounds, the art, everything was just super fascinating to me.

I don't know how many islands I ended up driving into financial ruin

Parkitect beta 3 released with a new ride, new props and bug fixes
6 February 2018 at 12:52 pm UTC

At some point they talked about how "cosmetic" improvements should actually work more complex than in Planet Coaster, for example - where it is just "if cosmetic stuff close to the ride, then attractiveness++".

Has this been implemented yet?
