  1. Hey guys, just creating a thread to gather any news and drop it here. Here's the latest tweet from Christian on the matter -
  2. There weren't enough sales and it was pretty much Christian himself driving this project without any financial backers. You can't expect him to keep taking out personal loans and remortaging the house. Other developers have larger teams and have had more sales and big deals from investors and publishers, which is why games like RB6 are doing alright. He addressed it in his video here - https://www.facebook.com/SerellanLLC/ ~Edit~ You seem to be posting in the Takedown section of the site. Serellan no longer have access to Takedown as it's completely in 505 Games' hands. Serellan don't receive a penny from it, and can no longer update that game.
  3. Christian's response has just been posted - m.facebook.com/SerellanLLC/
  4. Thanks so much for making this video! It was completely unexpected and very touching. If EPSILON goes Open Source I hope you guys will help us improve the game and keep it's spirit alive!
  5. Awesome posts guys. I'm incredibly keen to help with EPSILON, but the only thing I could bring to the table at the moment is voice-acting, writing and bug testing. As a university student I do have access to resources necessary to learn UE4, but my field is computer security, and my knowledge of programming languages is limited to Bash and Python. I know a couple of game developers and designers who I'd try and recruit to the cause, but that would be a long shot. I'd certainly be committed to learning how to use the Unreal SDK and contributing to EPSILON, but obviously my studies would be my main priority. I'm incredibly excited for this.
  6. Cheers mate. Though I think it was too little, too late on my part. I should have rallied my friends early on and spread the word more. From my point of view I think the best middle ground would be to provide the source code to anyone who purchased the game. I realise many people could get the game without purchasing it once it's released, but at least there's still a chance of people buying the game. The community could work on whatever they wanted in Christian's absence, and then if he ever wanted to continue development later on he could. Anyone more informed have any input?
  7. This might sound silly (I'm in the compsec field, not gamedev) , but what about releasing the source code for anyone who has purchased the game? If you open source Epsilon then that's it. The balls in our court, and you can just move on with life. If you might be coming back to update the game in the future, it might be better to make it so that people who buy the game can then have free reign with the source code, which potentially could lead to some sales, perhaps a revival further down the line? OpenMW and Call of Chernobyl both check to see if you've got the game installed before you can use them, to ensure people have purchased the game beforehand. This is sort of where my idea came from.
  8. No worries Christian. Sad to hear this. I had hoped things would start looking up for you. You have to do whats best for yourself and your family. Hopefully you can return to Epsilon further down the line.
  9. You're a good man, Dark. You're fighting the good fight!
  10. Hey guys, A user on the steam forum is in a bit of a pickle. Their middle mouse button isn't working, and they can't seem to reassign the context menu to another key. http://steamcommunity.com/app/300760/discussions/0/135508398034719664/ I asked them to change this - ActionMappings=(ActionName="ContextMenu",Key=MiddleMouseButton,bShift=False,bCtrl=False,bAlt=False,bCmd=False) But unfortunately it hasn't worked. I've tried contacting Christian over twitter, but he hasn't responded. Anyone got any ideas?
  11. Have you tried verifying your cache at all? You could always try a complete reinstall. I don't really think there's any tech support available from Serellan. Takedown is in the hands of 505 Games.
  12. Agreed! Yeah I do amateur voice acting for indie projects and animations and such, so I tend to try and make friends with others in hopes of getting help or calling in favours. I suppose even if no one sees his videos, it's another sale and possibly a positive review for Epsilon. I think Bella became Brand Manager fairly recently, because I really don't recall seeing it before. I definitely remember her being the voice in Hotel Blind at least. Pretty cool. It's good to have friends who can help! Yeah "a couple of things" sounds promising. Hopefully a small update to the game and maybe some investment or something. Or it could be Christian saying he's going to work for another developer and come back to Epsilon later. Either way suits me fine.
  13. Here's a bit of hope.
  14. Yeah I guess you're right. That Hot Pepper Gaming sounds absolutely brilliant. I'd totally pay to see that! Haha. If Epsilon can have one more major update I think we'd be in a better position to contact Youtubers and others. Creating customer content for the YouTubers sounds good, but I suppose it's a bit of a waste of resources that could go into additional content instead of currying favour with the YouTuber. Though it is a nice touch. I have a friend who I met over at http://voiceacting.boards.net/ who does Youtube videos as well as voice acting. He's got a small channel but he's a nice guy, so I've gifted him the game and asked him to do a Let's Play of the game. That should get done next week, and that's another purchase to add to Serellan's belt. I've also asked Bella Ryse for any news, as she's now Brand Manager of Serellan. Thanks for having this discussion with me. Glad to know I'm not fighting this alone.
  15. The internet already is toxic as hell. I think that's our problem. Haha I've gave him a shout over Twitter. Probably won't respond, but it's always worth a try. I think a lot of the veterans from games like SWAT and Rainbow Six will be easy to convert over to Epsilon if the game is updated a bit more. I haven't touched Rainbow Six Siege because it just doesn't feel right anymore, and I'm sure others are looking for a classic, tactical shooter as well. Got any Youtubers you think might be worth contacting? I've always avoided 'Let's Play's and reviewers. I just stick to PC Gamer and other magazines. And in regard to the media, I think we'll probably have to do without them. I'll keep tweeting their accounts and suggesting Epsilon, but I don't think anything will come of it. Haha, yeah you can definitely dream. I'll always hope for the best. Though I'd settle for a smaller victory at this rate. I'll be so hyped for coop in Epsilon as well.
