This is looking to be a good year. I'd fallen off of the train for a while, back to the traditional handhelds. Glad to see progress is happening and this will hopefully blow me away.

Or *gulp* Reaper or Legion of Amon.

Maybe I should resurrect my old "The Forgotten Games" thread.

We're pretty close to entering beta. The critical path and all sidequests are fully playable. Some elements of the GUI are still being finalised and Alan is still busy managing the sound pipeline and what remains of the art pipeline (very little at this point). I expect screenshots will be coming as soon as we have the final GUI art. The game will absolutely be released this year.

FYI, I rented Max Payne 3 last week. I played for an hour - and then became so engrossed with TSS that I didn't touch it again until I returned it to the store.

I guess that means Ossian makes better games than Rockstar.

That's awesome! I think we all know that deep down, TSS is gonna be amazing! However, it is taking a little long :P I'm anxiously waiting for it to release.

Do you need any help with beta testing?
