Gothic is working actively on Games Division stuff, but it's going to be a while before it goes live - it's a very big project at the heart of it.  It's definitely something special but don't expect anything until well into 2007.

I wasn't really trying to rush anybody, just poking fun at the game division reference. I didn't know there was such a division, but am glad to know of its existence!

That's because it's top-secret. :P sshh! :)

Like mouser said, it's a really big project and it will take allot of time to complete.

Congrats, vrgrrl! :)

A really big project, huh? Big like The Elder Scrolls II (playing time)? Or big like The Elder Scrolls IV (graphics :o)?
Well, time will tell.

:laughs:
Yes, that's for sure, what I ment with it that we won't be developing much storyline/content or graphics, but rather `new` technology. Or a new concept rather. And I probably should shut up now :)

The video's I've seen of spore don't have much new to offer in the graphics department, nor does it have any fantastic elaborate storyline, but it's more like a new type of game. (Or more like a combination of different types of games, in the case of spore). Hence my comparison.

- That, and I'm a programmer, I get over-ambitious :P That's my excuse and I stick to it! :D

:runs and hides under a rock:

Ah! OK! A new concept. That's always a good thing, more in these days, when most games seem similar and Electronic Arts gets richer and richer by releasing "new" games which should be sold as expansions and not as new games (Think FIFA...). Would it be something groundbreaking like Warren Spector's work? :)
