Defcon due September 2006

Postby Chris » Sat Jul 22, 2006 5:55 pm

After much debating we've decided to arrange the launch of Defcon for the end of September 2006.

We had initially planned an April 2006 launch, but Defcon is our first multiplayer game and the networking code has been driving us slowly nuts. It's really a wonder games work over the Internet at all. We now know far more than we ever expected to know about NAT firewalls and UDP data protocols, and the multiplayer code is the reason everything has been delayed.

We'll have more news about exactly how Defcon will be distributed soon.

Not long to go!

I'm beginning to feel sorry for Vic, as every time her name appears, there's a doubter there. Then again, Vic seemed more than happy to fuel the discussion in the last topic, so ho hum :D

As for the release date, ace, I'll have to clear my sched. :)

Make sure the next next next game will NOT be released before 27 March 2008. I would like to be at the release party, see.
