Nadeo Reveals ShootMania and QuestMania

Nadeo has opened ManiaPlanet as a hub for their upcoming projects, the already announced TrackMania 2 and the newly revealed ShootMania and QuestMania, an upcoming first-person shooter and role-playing game, respectively. There is a ManiaPlanet teaser trailer on TM-Tube (not sure why they eschewed TubeMania for that one) talking about how they plan to empower users to create PC game content, and how ManiaPlanet will provide a unified hub for all three games, which will share a social network and content creation tools. They also outline a beta schedule, saying their racing sequel TrackMania 2 will enter beta testing in Q4 of this year, ShootMania will go beta in Q1 2011, with the QuestMania beta "coming soon." A post to the ManiaPlanet Forum by Hylis (Nadeo director Florent Castelnerac) explains their measured approach to rolling out this ambitious scheme. There are also one, two, three forum posts reflecting Nadeo's quandary over how to handle DRM for this endeavor, this post explaining that coppers are being renamed "planets" and more how they plan on handling game environments, with more on environments here. Finally. there's also a post about scheduling, this post pointing out confusing aspects of that schedule, and this post confessing to the confusion and trying to set things straight. Thanks Frans.
