When will it be created past the part where you free your parents from execution?

Craig will get to this as soon as he can. I assume though that it will only take another 2-6 months to complete, if Craig works his but off. And this isn't the forum to ask that question  ;)

2-6 months?

That's both a long range and I think, probably inaccurate. I bet if he decided to work on it he could finish it quickly, but it is more economical to finish the game mechanics and user interface first, rather than making the mission and then redoing the interface.

I think it's best to hear what Craig himself has to say about the production times, folks, rather than simply guessing. ;)

So where IS the forum to ask.

at Cstern's current rate, I'd say 2months for somnus, 1month for the great forest, 1.5 months for the deaper downs, another month for lake alto, 2months for the Psy Academy, and another month for the Gelf. If everything goes well and nothing more is added that means 8-9months. That's not including time to eliminate bugs, which we are still finding from the update several weeks ago. Craig probably wants to release it this year though.

You base your information off of what?

Just an estimate to how recent updates have come.  Do you see it taking less or more time then? Or just have a problem with my guessing?
I'll admit, there is no statistical value I can base it on.

I hava a problem with the guessing.  You are telling people something that may not be true.

eh, but it keeps them from asking questions for awhile.  :-*

yeah but when they find out it was a guess then they start to get mad
Title: Re: mission 4 finish/game release date
Post by: Zhampir on March 24, 2010, 03:11:23 PM
then they have no body to be mad at but themselves, as stated, it was a guess. Craig himself admits he doesn't know when the project will be completed.

yet you claimed you knew when.

Folks, this is a pointless discussion: I am sure when Craig gets a rough feel for the completion date, he'll let us now. For now, the most honest answer is that the completion date of TSoG is unknown, but steady progress is being made at the moment.

I agree with KZ but seeing many game developments and the depth that this game is going through I would bet about 10 months + Bugs depending how many there are.

Well, I hope that this will be a really long game, and that the finished, downloadable demo is out soon.
Title: Re: mission 4 finish/game release date
Post by: Zhampir on April 07, 2010, 04:16:56 PM
the demo won't be finished, it's just marketing.

I think that Dorgon 5000 just meant that:
1. He hopes that TSoG will be a really long game and
2. He hopes that the downloadable demo will be finished soon.

But, just in case, I'll try to clear things out:
- Currently there is an online playable demo (a beta version);
- Soon (though I have no idea how soon) the online demo will stop being updated and a downloadable (and, I think, more complete) demo will be available;
- The demos will contain only a part of the full game (and may be used as a marketing tool);
- The full game will be sold;
- For now, there isn't a release date for the full game.

Gelf (http://telepath.wikia.com/wiki/Gelf) is the name of a Wood-Folk (http://telepath.wikia.com/wiki/Wood-Folk) character in TRPG2.  Gelf is also a common, but incorrect name for the Gelf's race (http://telepath.wikia.com/wiki/Folk-of-the-Woods).

please use correct spelling and grammar, i can barely read that
but TPA2  costs 12.99, and this game is bigger and better, so I'd bet on about 20
