I can't wait!

It wasn't long before people bought DWU to my attention and I have been loving it.
All news about a sequel is music to my ears.

Really looking forward to this, as the performance of a certain other developer has almost made me lose hope for the genre.

Wow, I missed about a month and there have been FOUR (I think) dev comments here.

I know none of them say anything, but it's still really exciting.

Ok, I can't say much yet but let me say this. Elliot and I took the benefit of our experience with DW1 started over with an entirely new engine with DW2 to build a better Distant Worlds, not some completely different game. The original Distant Worlds, which was in many ways less ambitious, still took more than five years of development, design, art and testing to create. Our ultimate goal is to deliver a better and bigger Distant Worlds for everyone. I can't speak about timelines or schedules unfortunately, but I will pull back the curtain as soon as I can.

Regards,

- Erik




This message was fantastic. It doesn't say anything defining, but it hints at design mentality of making an advanced DWU, not making a new game with a "2" appended to the title.

I have to say that I probably would have been happy and excited either way (because the people making DWU should be capable of making another great unique game), but the focus on a better DWU inspires a lot of confidence.

Cheers!

Agreed.

And keep up the good work on your YouTube channel!

Amen to that! It's like a completely different game, and is so challenging that it's the only reason I'm still playing DW.

Confession time - I've never played as a Pirate.

Sounds like I'm missing out!

Read this and then read it again. And then basically throw out everything you knew about how to win at DW. It won't work as a pirate.

Nice. Sounds like a different game. I'd better some time to one side to try a pirate start!

Simply put, since I started playing pirates for the first time, I never went back to playing regular empires anymore. It's a reckless mode with no downtimes. That's a bit overwhelming at times but lots of fun too.

Why bother making dosh yourself when you can setup extortion on a galactic scale?
