Just asking. :)

That's partly up to you, to ask TT2 from different shops and try to promote it enough. Although I doubt couple of humble customers here and there would be enough to bring TT2 to shelves alone. We need to -promote-! :D

Btw, what kind of business plans do you have? Will we find TT2 from big portals like Reflexive and RealArcade? How much do they cut from the price?

All kinds of ;) With TT2 I doubt we go into "portal business". I don't think anyone would accept a hard core game into those casual / mainstream business'. Cug's next game which we are currently producing will most probably go into reflexive or similar ;)

Of course I can't get much into details, but let's say that first we need to polish this, then manufacture the boxed version, and then to get it on the shelves. That's about what I can share with the public.

Also joining IGF could give some nice publicity. Deadline is over, but it's annual so next years awards are waiting for TT2.

Yes, IGF would be nice. Too bad we just missed it :( But no matter, I'm sure we get into that later on ;)

Absolutely! :D Every time you go into a place they sell games in, ask for Triplane Turmoil 2 and say it's the brand new finnish game ;) (if you live in Finland, that is.)

VALVe has taken some pretty minority games to Steam webshop. When TT2 is finished enough, you should ask if they would be interested with adding the game to Steam. If it could get there, it would get much more attention than it does at this moment.

Yep, that's one of the things we're going to do. But before the network and stability... no way. ;)

Yup, the product should be finished quite completely before even asking VALVe about putting it in Steam. I have a funny feeling that they might just accept the game to their system. Then again, I don't really know how VALVe deals with an invidual.

Well, that's true. United we stand! We'll shout our message to VALVe so hard that they'll hear it.

I can shout pretty loud, so I'm an excellent addition to our cause. :)

Talking about network. Do you know when the network play would be ready to play? Not that it has any haste - think I will have my hands full with the non-network game. It would just be interesting to compete against other TT players abroad.

Is there any chance of seeing network of TT I? It could be interesting. Any way, the network play in TT II must of course be first priority.

I'd say couple of months; might be faster, but I don't want to give out empty promises. The more we have to spend on getting the game more stable, the longer will the V1.1 take.

About tt1... I think we let the old veteran have peace now, shall we? The problem is also that there is also a legislative issue since it's not a draconus game.
