Questions

#1 Post by Xan713 » Mon Jul 23, 2012 5:06 pm

Hi,

I don't have internet to download a copy to try this out yet, so I'm curious about this project -

What races are confirmed from MOO2 & 3 will be in FO? And what races from those titles will be left out?

Also, have you all considered a Kickstarter approach to fund this project to do bigger and better things?

None. All are original. We don't have rights to MoO IP, but i personally wouldn't want to use it. I think new is more intresting.

I don't think most of the developers want to be full-time game developers, and leave the job they have. I freelance, so i could theoretically do more for FO if there was money in it. Besides covering hosting, i don't think more money thrown at FO would greatly improve things.
