Sure Space Sims are a Niche market, but isnt the whole PC Gaming scene being turned into a Niche market anyway, with all the consolitis going on and and shit? (Disregarding MMO games anyway)
Derek you are contradicting yourself, first you say that Space SIMS are dead. Then you say that you made 11 sucessfull space sims that actually made money WTF?!
Ok sure, so you didnt get the licence to do Freespace3
and mainstream publishers dont want to go near it.
That doesnt mean that some other Indie developer with a small dedicated team couldnt make a decent sequel. Especially considering how digital distribution is only making bigger and bigger strides and since most mainstream publishers are switching to consoles, there is a bit of a vacuum being left that small developers/publishers are only too happy to fill.
The absurdity of calling Space Sims, SIMS is very fucking absurd! From a marketing perspective the word SIMULATION is going to put a lot of potential buyers off, especially considering that most of those games really dont really require a 500 page manual to get to grips with. LOL Space SIMS, as if those space ships REALLY existed. Now if someone made a Space Shuttle SIM that would be another matter.This comment was edited on Apr 10, 10:58.
