MDI Hiring? Brainstorming?
« on: May 02, 2017, 08:52:12 PM »
(For those of you who don't check the twitter accounts, check those first.)

Speculation time! Those hordes of pieces don't look like Halcyon 6 content, so I'm concluding that another game is entering the works. Now the questions. Is it for PC or mobile? Or both? Will there be a Kickstarter for it? Maybe it's a digital board game? Is it an MMO, a strategy game, or an action platformer featuring Bucky Rodgers? (Possibly all three...) How soon will it get its own boards on the forums? How soon will we learn anything more about it? How soon will any relevant decisions be made that result in anything to learn? How many more questions can I ask without providing answers?
Celebrate with me! I finally hit Sentinel!

After the small update mentioned the retreat, I looked at the tweets again. I'm guessing that quite a bit of the Halcyon 6 brainstorming went into the space pirates mini-campaign. Whenever I think I should make something original (I have sights on modding achievement), I keep getting ideas for overpowered equipment. Maybe I should run with that. The main thing I picked up: the new game is (code)named Project X. Here's hoping that really is the title.  ;)

Project X (apparently also known as ____) now has a piece of art as a teaser (that will almost certainly not be in the final game). I'm deducing that at least one of three things is true: it's a racing game, it has cutscenes, and/or it isn't set in space. Link to the tweet:

Good news: Project X has a trailer!








Bad News: It isn't finished yet.

I'm beginning to suspect that the trailer and the officer update will come together. It makes sense as a marketing strategy. All the Halcyon 6 players who care about the game will probably read the patch notes. If it has a link to a trailer/an embedded trailer, many will probably check it out. On the other hand, the trailer could precede the update and then get mentioned in the patch notes too with the same effect.
