Re: 2008 Indie game of the year voting
I didn't vote for Saga (Tolwyn, don't read this :wtf:) despite being part of the team. Saga just doesn't deserve it with so few released content and I can't vote for it because of things that are team-only, no matter how good. It's too long in development and showing to little new.
Same for Diaspora. I want to see something before I vote. EDIT: Thought about it again. Voted. Kara is at the helm, this will deliver. Also, it has the "it's still new and alive and kicking" bonus.

But I put in an additional vote for ST:R of course  :)

Indie game of the year having not released anything and only existed for part of the year?  :nervous: They'll still probably beat us anyway :).

Re: 2008 Indie game of the year voting

Actually that's not necessarily true.

1) Diaspora hasn't released anything this year.
2) A lot of people who voted for BtRL last year either don't know about Diaspora or won't vote for us until we do release something
3) Since we're virtually the same team who won it last year, using many of the same models we're probably not different enough from BtRL to get anything above an honourable mention.
4) We're probably going to pull out of the whole thing anyway since we'd rather compete for MotY 2009 once we're competing completely under our own reputation and not based on BtRL's

Although I'm working hard on Diaspora right now, TBP's the indie game I'd be pushing to win this year so if you lot want to make a serious PR campaign I'll be right behind you. :)

I'd love to see TBP win, so much effort has been put into that mod over the years that it deserves recognition.

Re: 2008 Indie game of the year voting
I've noticed that the ModDB site has no actual news posted. That has the effect of making TBP look a lot more dead than it actually is. In addition, posting news gets you onto the front page of the ModDB which gets you seen by people who wouldn't otherwise notice your mod.

My suggestion would be to make a "Review of the year" style update post covering all the stuff that TBP has added to the final release since that came out. I'd make one myself but I've not kept up with TBP as much as I should these last few months so I'd miss stuff out.

Re: 2008 Indie game of the year voting
my thoughts similar.

We need to note the newly released campaigns, especially DoW 3 of course since that's not in the Campaign Pack. All, let's start writing something and discuss this. TBP year in review sounds great and we had some big releases this year.

Re: 2008 Indie game of the year voting
Well the major stuff I can think of that happened last year and there is a lot of it.

Multiplayer is fixed and updaded.
FH2260 (  or was that late 07?)
DC (again not sure if that was 07)
Kara, Vid and I officially join the team.
3.4B goes FINAL
Hip makes the installer
Multiplayer mission pack
Startfury pilot missions are updated and released
EMW released
DVD is released
IP steps into the shadows leaving Vid and I in charge (gasp)
Operations released
3.6.10 testing for multi begins
Several movies released. 
Campaign pack 2.0
XMAS pack (includes first mods)
DOW updated and part 3 


I know there is more then this but that's just off the top of my head.

Re: 2008 Indie game of the year voting
you are right, Dark Children was 08  :eek2:

I recommend nailing it down to:
- TBP going Final
- Release of Fortune Hunters 2260 and Earth-Brakiri War. Maybe DoW3 too but that was still a bit rough in 08. It's better in 09  :lol:
- Implimentation of Multiplayer with tons of missions and the Coop-Operations campaigns
- The Release of the TBP DVD along with the campaign pack 2.0
- Short mentioning of updated and new stuff that came out after CP2.0, especially the updated SF Pilot, Operations and the XMAS package

Not sure about team changes, mini-campaigns (DC) and WIP 3.6.10


Edit: Just for fun: What the hell should we do if we win  :lol: :lol: :lol: ? Who to send the prizes :lol: ?

Re: 2008 Indie game of the year voting
From watching some of the voting I doubt we will win but I have thought about that.  Depending on what it is we probably should give it to the team member(s) that can put it to the best use. 


As for the news now all we need is for someone to type it up.  I'm terrible at doing that stuff or there would already be news posted.   :P
