Kotor Apeiron

I will give $100 to first three people to like this post if Apeiron is actually finished and released within next 5 years. I've been around wannabe game devs long enough to know overambitious project when I see one.

Like numero uno, coming right up

Sithspectre, Goat and Kexikus, welcone to the competition. Someone dig this post up in 5 years because I'm likely to forget what apeiron is by then :P

I forget what it is every day until I see someone else saying something else about it. Not important enough to remember.

I might get excommunicated for this, but I pop in to development streams they have when I can. It's actually pretty interesting, seeing the progress. Not surprising how "ehh, you know" they get when it comes to the legality of the project

You are hereby excommunicated :P

One of the many reasons I think that particular developer is a total knob.

Goading him on like that is kind of childish in itself, though...

He's more likely to respond if you tag him. He usually does unless like five people at once tag him

 

From what I know, he's recreating the d20 system the base game uses to the T. Somehow I doubt it'll be an exact copy, at least to the more complicated aspects like criticals and all that

Except he's not the one doing any of that work. Apparently there's some other guy working on the AI and all that boring coding stuff.

 

You know - nothing important.

Ive seen no evidence of that what so ever, have they even worked out the kinks, how it will all work together? Have they even attempted any of this thus far? So many qs, and it iant as easy as randomly placing placeables than saying thats an area... and i hope they have a plan b like frontwire studios do if disney shuts them down. Those are juat some qs and issuea i have with apeiron

Gotta say, what they have MODELED at least is doubtlessly beautiful. I wouldn't mind a mode you could just wander around and take it all in

This is perhaps relevant, but

 

I remember a team project I worked on where the team had one guy do all of the coding and AI behavior (and basically anything to do with setting up the game engine); It did not end well...

Did they see what happened to Galaxy in Turmoil?

 

http://frontwirestudios.com/the-future-of-galaxy-in-turmoil/

 

And that was only supposed to be based on Battlefront. A complete remake of a game is going to no doubt get a call from Lucasfilm. If what happened to those guys doesn't stop these guys, then only the phone call itself will.

Except that Galaxy in Turmoil would be competing with Battlefront, AFAIK there are no upcoming licensed SW RPGs that Apeiron would get in the way of.

Im pretty sure they announced one at E3? Or am I mistaken?

Not an RPG. More an action/adventure sort of thing in an open world/semi-open world. Think something like Uncharted but with a Star Wars flavour, in the same vein 1313 was originally pitched as.

So I guess Battlefront 3 getting C&D'd by EA means we won't be seeing any mods recreating the cancelled KOTOR 3, either.

Pretty sure they've hinted at a new Bioware RPG, haven't they? I know they've been treating the new SWTOR expansions as such, but I'm fairly certain there was confirmation of a new Bioware SW game slated for the future.

 

Either way, its not really about competition. It's something they could be capitalising on, but have decided not to. It's their brand, their IP.

 

Not only that, but they have a contract with EA for them to deliver SW games. Lucasfilm asked EA if they'd bring in the indie studio doing Galaxy in Turmoil, because LF was willing to negotiate a deal, but EA can't just randomly bring in another studio under their publishing. That's a huge deal.

 

Same would go for the people behind Apeiron.

Is it really competition if one of the 'competitors' is in fact devoid of many internal organs and limbs?

Sick burn m8

 

I don't think EA would bring Frontwire Studios on board and undermine their entire BF development staff.

 

And Poem Studios, perhaps they are allowed to exist because as of yet, nothing they've posted even looks like KOTOR.

It might not look like KotOR, but they did get a fair bit of traction and gathered a crowd of ignorant people (next person I see calling the game a "mod" gets shot) to support it. Like previously stated, they'll probably shutdown if and when they actually get some proper gameplay.
