It's too bad we haven't seen Dan about since the OddComp. He had a lot of creative & ambitious ideas that I'm assuming he ended up abandoning because his perfectionist tendencies wouldn't allow him to release any of them. I was particularly interested in a project of his called Clepsydra. Supposedly, he had teamed up with Quantumsheep to complete The Lighthouse, but we haven't seen Quantumsheep around either and the game is MIA.

Maybe they've changed authoring systems... whatever the reason for their absence, I hope they still release some of those games. It would be a shame for them to go to waste.

I was actually thinking about cleaning out this topic (with everyones agreement of course) and start over again to see how many games are actually in the making out there. This thread is great, but a bit out of date I'm afraid.
Would it be ok? Should I make a poll about it?

We should make a poll about whether there should be a poll about it! :cool:

Are you sure that's wise? You ought to ask around first, see who's interested... maybe you could set up a poll...

I'm fine with a new thread but I think we need to have all the games mentioned in the current thread listed in the new OP, in order to publicly shame the author for their failure to deliver. :-P

You'll notice my name isn't on the current list - I'm much too smart to talk about any of my doomed WIPs here. :cool:

...because that would be, like, all of them. :ohno:

The key thing is updating it. As David is <s>sulking until version 5 is released</s> otherwise engaged, I think it would make sense for it to be restarted by someone who is more active on the forum at present, and who will be for the forseeable future.

I wouldn't mind restarting it...
But we need a set of rules, so the thread will not be drowned in "white noise"
Let this be a thread where people can inform about their work, and update as necessary.
Cheers

Well this thread hasn't been posted in for a while...But I recently started my first IF, based on an already established body of work I will release rather soon, but haven't yet.

The current working title is something like Beyond Rozstad, all around Duizenia!

Though as mentioned, it's not the final title. It's pretty much about going all around Duizenia, interacting with various characters from the stories I have written, with a few extras I haven't completely made yet.

I already have some other things planned, but I don't wanna tell them yet.
