Just read the e-mail about this. Will this be considered an affiliate game, or marketed as a Wadjet Eye game?

I'm betting if they had played To The Moon, there would be three WadjetEye games on that list.

You got your wish. :) They played the game and Gamezebo just posted a review of To The Moon, in which they gave it five stars.  ;D

Gamezebo has published a "Best Adventure Games of 2011" list, and both Blackwell Deception and Gemini Rue made the list! The list only contains 5 titles, so this is really something to congratulate Dave about!  ;D

I agree! I love Jim Butcher's series. Can't wait for the next one to find out if Harry's really dead. (Not that that will stop him. ;))

So I just got a suggestion from Twitter to follow @harrydresden because @RosaBlackwell follows him. Harry Dresden is the wizard in Jim Butcher's phenomenal series "The Dresden Files".

So I'm probably showing my age, but it's a bit creepy to get a recommendation to follow one fictional character, because another fictional character already follows him.  :D (That didn't stop me from following him though. I didn't know that Butcher had set up that account.  ;))

I'm an uncle. Welcome to the family, Ruby and Noah

Grats Dave!

Heh, sorry about the double post, but G4tv just put out an interview with Max Schaefer that contained the following:

G4: Is the level editor supposed to bundled with the game at release?

Schaefer: Yes. It may be a separate download, but it'll be absolutely free for anyone who wants to get it.

G4: What sorts of versatility do have in terms of creating new content?

Schaefer: Oh, it's huge. It's almost limitless. This is the actual development tools that we use day-to-day. We're not dumbing them down, we're not disabling them. Everything we do with this tool is going to be available for the customer to do. A really, really ambitious modder will be able to make an entirely new game with it. As long as it's an action RPG. We don't have a lot of camera control stuff. It's got to look vaguely like what we're doing and work vaguely that way. But our graphics engine is a third-party graphics engine, it's the Ogre 3D engine -- it's just a graphics engine. It doesn't have any game tools or anything. It's open source and the cool thing about that is people have written 3DSMax and Maya exporters so people will literally be able to generate their own art and plug it into the game. There's level editing, particle systems, skill editors, quest editing features -- the tool si really comprehensive. It's how we create and construct the game on a day-to-day basis and it literally does everything.

So yes, you should be able to create new games using PrEditor.  ;D As far as it needing to be an "action RPG", I think he probably meant "an isometric RPG", as opposed to a game with full camera control.

You're very welcome! Right now I'm not in a monetary situation to help out any indie developers, but I'm rooting for you guys and I love to help where I can. I figure it's the least I can do since I just got a free copy of Shivah a few weeks ago.  ;)

At any rate, PrEditor is being released on October 27, the same date as Torchlight, so Janet could take a look and see what she thinks.

Dave, I am nearly 100% sure that it is far more than a modding tool for Torchlight, because the devs have stated several times that "you could actually make your own game from scratch" in PrEditor. However, this is the first time that they have explicitly said that indie developers are welcome to just use it freely for their own games.

Not that this will be as easy as just modding Torchlight, but I think you are already well aware of that.

Edit: They have said several times that they are using Ogre. Not even sure what Ogre is, but I was under the impression that PrEditor was built from Ogre? Sorry I can't be more helpful. I don't understand a lot of what is said on the modding forum, because I've never created a game. That being said, I'm looking forward to diving into PrEditor, because it looks so easy compared to so many others.

I'll get back to Blackwell and she'll work on an isometric RPG engine.  And if it's user-friendly enough, we can license it out to others!  There are no friendly isometric RPG engines out there. 

Dave, just FYI, the "no friendly isometric RPG engines" may be changing in 2 weeks. Check out this post from the Runic games forum. You can watch 3 basic tutorials from their blog posts. It looks like the Runic guys are very sympathetic toward toward Indie developers and are letting anyone use their PrEditor for free. My understanding is that they built their entire game from PrEditor.

I'm not sure if this will meet your needs, and maybe Janet just wants to go ahead and create an engine so that you have something that definitely belongs entirely to you. However, if she isn't 100% committed to writing it, she may want to dive into PrEditor and see what she thinks.

Dave, when I try to click on "Games", I'm getting an error message.

Yep, saw that! I'll try out the demo in the next few days when I have time!

Hey Dave, since we were talking about ARPGs that are coming out, did you know about this?

Background: Iron Lore Entertainment was the creator of Titan Quest, a very popular D2 clone. Through no fault of their own, they ended up going bust (mainly through piracy issues). They have re-formed as Crate Entertainment. Originally, the plan was to go to console games. However, according to the article linked above, they are now planning to go back to the PC.

This is just one more isometric/ARPG game coming out from a proven group of people. However, once again, I'm sure that this will probably be an "action" RPG, not an "adventure" RPG, which is what I would Planescape:Torment as.
