Well, after a long period of inactivity, the wheels are moving again on ST:R. It's good to get working again, but we're reminded of why things went so slowly last time; Goober and I are debating everything from the name of the player's squadron to the types of weapons the Hades uses to whether or not the PVD Pinnacle was involved in the Battle of Deneb. None of it really matters, of course, but we both have far too many ideas.
Many older missions are having new life breathed into them. Old, unremarkable missions like The Wait, The Return to Ross 128, and Cloak and Dagger
are full of new dialog, exciting events, unexpected twists and sinister connotations. New missions await to fill in the gaps and extend the scope of the original campaign. Command and Mission Briefings and Debriefings are informative, comprehensive, and tailored to the player's performance. The balance is flexible enough to scale with the skill level, but challenging enough to not bore seasoned players. The overall experience is completely immersive, and the conclusion is deeply satisfying.
Goober and I are really looking forward to releasing this, and we're cooperating as best we can to get it done. We hope you enjoy playing it as much as we're enjoying making it, particularly with fresh eyes and ears. Rest assured, we're aware of your patience, and it will be rewarded.
