Yeah, they have a publisher... it's called Paradox... I have no clue what happened this week at Kerberos to make people so snippy... but that's ok... just let Mecron run his company... and pray for a quality game when Northstar eventually gets released. That is what I am doing, anyways...

I don't think we can gather this at all, given that the bulk of their development resources have to be going to SotS2 at this point. What I think we can gather is that Kerberos is not going to say much about the game until (a) it has a publisher, or (b) it is nearly done and so they are confident of being able to find a publisher, or (c) both. ;)

"I have no clue what happened this week at Kerberos to make people so snippy" :roll: This statement begins to make many things clear.

I'm still interested in this game.. Looking forward to it should it get published.

Old poster long away, though I still play some sots now and again. :)

It sure would be nice to get some sort of update on the game. Perhaps some screenshots or even new concept art to tide us over?

I would also love to see more on this game :)
Can you give us some exclusive info Mecron?
Is the rumor about changing the name to CrateStar true? ;)

It's been quite a long time since the last news about Nortstar. Has it been shelved? Or the was the schedule bumped indefinitely?

Probably postponed until after SotS 2 is released.

I remember when talk was this game was going to be out first before sots2. Something changed but oh well, I'm betting very late 2012 or more likely 2013 for this game. Even 2014 is possible if sots2 gets expansion pack fever like sots1 did. All a wait and see game now.... Looking forward to this game either way tho...

If SotS 2 kicks gluteus maximus, then expect N* in half a decade. ;)

Don't bet on it. It has been implied that the work on N* is done or nearly so. The reason for not having more news is most likely that Paradox and KP agreed that in crappy economic times it would be best to put forward a proven IP like SotS than a new IP like N*. N* was in negotiations last we heard and Mec wasn't able to say more, after SotS][ is released we may get a pleasant surprise, who knows (other than KP) 2012 might not be the end of the world after all! :thumbsup:
N* makes me miss my Commadore 64 and my copies of Starflight I + II :(

No one from Kerberos has implied that Nstar is "done or nearly so".

:oops: Sorry Mec, I was just remembering a thread awhile back were people were wondering if maybe you were having difficulty finding a publisher and you said something to the effect of: it isn't hard to find a publisher for a finished product. Just assumed from that and the fact that we saw some decent progress/press previews (with screens and all) that you were nearly there before the economy tanked world wide, making SotS][ a safer bet. Well you know what they say about what happens when you ass-u-me. :oops:
