Galactic Command: Echo Squad SE Announced

3000AD announces Galactic Command: Echo Squad Second Edition, a reworked version of a game that had been a GameTap exclusive that will see widespread release next month. The Galactic Command: Echo Squad Second Edition (A Tek Janson Adventure) Website highlights some of the differences in the SE, and here's word:

Following the end of the GameTap exclusive to the original title completed earlier this year, we have decided to release a Second Edition branded version of the game for wide public release in January 2008.

An update product info, version control file (showing the transition from the legacy v1 to the v2 SE version) and several screen shots have also been uploaded. For more info, please refer to the URL below.

http://www.3000ad.com/site/gces/

This decision allows us to bring our first non-niche space combat title to the gaming masses; sporting several of our new technologies, gameplay improvements and revisions over our earlier niche titles.

It also allows us to direct all our attention to the follow up title, Galactic Command - Talon Elite, our first console title of which the XB360 version is scheduled to be the first release during holiday 2008. The PC version is scheduled to follow thereafter.

Well, of course. Even the nicest, most cuddly dog will rip one's throat out after being whipped, kicked, raked across the coals, publicly humiliated, tarred, feathered, boiled, folded, spindled, mutilated, and anally examined with cold tweezers by the unwashed masses, who will then laugh at the bleeding, twitching, faintly pulsating mass of remaining flesh and make fun of its stupidity for getting itself into a completely avoidable situation. But after attacking its tormentors, it may revert back to happily licking a child's hand, before a second helping of attacks makes it hungry for human meat.

Its probably old age? Either that or I'm losing the rest of my mind?

Hmm I must say this is the most civil Ive ever seen a DS post kind of scary really, of course once the games out and the floggings start that WILL change.

Interesting. We definitely need more space sim/shooter games that you don't have to treat as a second job to be successful. I don't have time to spend reading a huge manual. I'm sure there are some people out there that love that stuff, but seriously, I read enough manuals for work.

I want something fun and intuitive. If you can't teach me everything I need to know through in-game tutorials, then it's probably not going to be something that I want to play.
It doesn't mean I don't want deep gameplay. I just don't want to have to memorize a manual in order to be able to play a game.

Well then, go take a gander at the docs. I've uploaded and made them public. Demo should be up after the holidays once all testing is complete.

Derek you are sounding quite calm and reasonable these days.

It's... unsettling.

Does this one crash as much as Battlecruiser 3000AD did?

Its a major departure from my previous offerings and I can't wait to see the new creative forms of abuse that I'm going to be subjected to when its released. After all, some of you wanted me to create a dumbed down version of my games. Well, this is as close as I can possibly get without totally losing my mind. Seriously.

Unfortunately, I have no comments about GameTap's plans.

We delivered the game, it was signed-off on, we got paid and that what the end of that.

This version is the non-GameTap version and made possible only by the ending of the GameTap exclusive period.

As I posted over here,

http://www.3000ad.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=50012384

I didn't want to release the original version as-is because we had already developed new and advanced technlogies.

So, I could either sit on it and focus on Talon Elite or release is after doing about a month or so of additional work upgrading it. In fact, you can see that effort over here in the version control file which tracks from the last GameTap version to the current v2 SE.

The game manual is like 37 pages. Plus you can use your XB360 controller.

Good stuff. I'm glad you still hang around here and without us having to summon you.

I don't know what to believe anymore. I...just...don't know.

When is the normal version hitting Gametap? The press release makes it sound like it's already done, but it's not on yet. I know people downloading Universal Combat on it because they want to see what Derek Smart is capable of in anticipation of the new game.

Actually the news release went out this morning early when Lisa got in.

I just happened to load up my browser (I use Firefox + Morning Coffee add-on) and there it was. So, I had to.
