Last post from game developers concerning game was on 5. January and to quote CEO and producer of Ossian Studios :



"Weíre getting closer. Iím knee-deep working on sound effects right now, and thereís been a lot to get through. But itís something thatís very important to me to get right Ė they have to sound great! "
- Alan

AND



"Yes, TSS will definitely be an early 2013 release. Weíre getting quite close now.
- Alan "



And call me naive, but I actually believe him on this one

5th January 2013?

Seriously though, I never doubted that they will release the game eventually, I'm only afraid that they won't make such a good impression with Shadow sun as they could've years ago. (Note: same goes for Forgotten memories).

Why not?

It almost seems like you are going out of your way to make the game appear to be vaporware, yet you expect us to blindly believe your promises without delivery. Why could you not post anymore screenshots over the last TWO years? What was the problem?

There's a difference between teasing us and leading us on, to me this is just poor marketing. But I sure hope you prove everybody wrong...

Mission Europa 2 is coming!!!

Yeah why not even one screenshot? I doubt that giving us one in-game shot will completely spoil the game to us.

Now now, let's not blame Obsidian for Ossian's failings...

I think we've been incredibly lucky that there's still nothing quite like TSS on the platform. So I don't think the game has suffered particularly - if anything, it's a lot better than it would have been two years ago.

You would need to ask Alan that.

I have no problem with them not showing any in-game footage or screenshots.Besides,if game concept and gameplay is really revolutionary , or anything new and fresh apart from generic and hybrid clone games other developers serve us in store every day , it will become popular soon even without releasing teasers, screens and hyping up people way before it's done( which tends to anger lot of people when developers postpone game release ).Also, I believe developer team put a lot of effort into making this game and they are all veterans in game development, so I trust their developing and marketing judgement and just hope they will feel comfortable soon to reveal more about game.
