The countdown is over and Chris Roberts' new website for his new game is online. Read the following statement by Chris Roberts and get excited:

Quote:
Welcome!

If you’ve made it here, you probably know who I am. Maybe you have heard of Wing Commander and its sequels, or perhaps Strike Commander, Privateer or Freelancer.

If not, you’re still welcome!

I grew up making video games. I sold my first game at the age of 13 and created Wing Commander when I was 21. But 10 years ago, at the height of my career I took a break. Not because I stopped loving or playing games but because I had become frustrated with the limits of the technology at the time to realize my vision.

I decided to pursue my desire to create detailed worlds and tell sophisticated stories in film.

I always said the moment I became interested in making games again was when I was going to come back.

With the power of today’s computers and the reach of the internet I finally feel I have the tools to build the connected experience that I always dreamed of. A world that would be more satisfying and richer than any film I could work on.

With films you tell stories but with games you create worlds.

If you’ve played my games, you’ll know that’s what I love to do.

I’m here to tell you that I have been working on something for just under a year, something that embraces everything that my past games stood for but takes it to the next level.

I hope you’ll be as excited by it as I am.

My new endeavor is still in its early stages but I invite you to take the journey with me.

If you register below you’ll become an insider that will not only give you early access to the game’s website and forums, but you will also get the opportunity for rewards and privileges that no one else will get. It’s my way of showing how important your early involvement and support is.

The full announcement will be at 10am Eastern Standard Time (UTC -5) on the 10th day of the 10th month of this year.

My name is Chris Roberts.

And if you would indulge me I would like to create a world for you.

Actually it was a countdown to a countdown to a much longer countdown. If the slightest thing that you dislike happens and it stops you from playing games, how do you even manage to play ANY? No process is perfect you will always make someone unhappy.

If you don't get the reference that the ? hint refers to, then you can always I dunno, look at the page source? Or just Google the question it hints you with

I am surprised by the muted response O_O Heck, surprised by the what i'd call semi hostile response from one!

I want to shout, to scream - HELL YEAH! Seriously, hopping up and down with excitement - which given my age is kind of embarrassing This isn't just another unknown person making the announcement - it's Chris Roberts. Seriously. AWESOME! So very very happy and excited.

A quick FYI for the person moaning about times/dates/length of time until potential release. Here is a quick copy/paste from another space sim which was announced a long time ago and also got me excited...

That's Infinity, Quest for Earth.Knocking on 7 years now and still nothing. 2 years is nothing, a drop in the ocean! Time flies V fast.

I look forward to reading more and more about it, hearing more, discovering more. Getting teasers and bits of information, releases etc. You know, that period of time when you can get excited in anticipation of something! Looking FORWARD to that

Am I the only one that's REALLY excited here? Guys - get out and spread the word Would love for him to see there is a good number of fans who are interested, enthusiastic, and supportive! Whiners need not apply (would ask the ages of those who are impatient. I think it is bourne of our "modern" era :/ )

Oh believe me you are not. I think this is the biggest news since the original FL release. And for the next two years, this will also drive people back to our little game here!

No way Chips when I heard this news this morning my jaw literaly dropped! When I signed onto the website after the countdown my colleagues at work were asking why I had such a huge grin on my face!!

Excited is simply an under statement! Hopefully more will catch onto this soon, i've told the folks over at the old nima forums. Must spread word more!
