A nice shout-out from the Games Guru at Indiegogo, who was interviewed at Gamezebo:

"Swords of the Stars: The Pit - A perfect mix of old school retro art combined with new school game mechanics in this action/RPG. Swords of Stars takes me back to the games of yore that I loved so much and I cannot wait to play this game."

James Barry at Colony of Gamers has also been playing the Preview Demo and enjoying it, although he doesn't think service robots are cute any more.

“There’s nothing ‘cute’ about going down a ladder and running into four security bots, thank you.”

And here's a preview of the Concept Calendar package. Ever wondered what the inside of a Liir diplomatic station looks like? Wonder no more!

Yup, looking forward to getting my Lore book :-)

Speaking of which - is there an ETA for when these are likely to be sent out?

Loving the Protean concept art and lore. They are disturbingly cute, in a "swallow you whole and digest you" sort of way. Of course, I like cats, and they always have an attitude of "if I were bigger, you'd be lunch" so I may be biased towards small things that want to eat you.

I am right there with you, GB! Every time I need a lift, I go to John's desk and ask to see the latest animations, and laugh madly. Watching the monsters run around pretty much makes my day. :lol:

Hee hee. Yes, the M'Kkose are a fungal life form. They're one of the weirder life forms in the SotSverse. :)

Monster of the week image is typo'd. Saw it in the other thread, though. Very cool. Cybear = scary. :shock:
