Vague announcement of what I am going to blog about in the near future

Nice, long and mysterious headline, isn't it? :)

No, I'm not dead, although I haven't blogged for nearly a week now. Which is a quite small amount of time, compared to the time-out of some other blogs which are linked from here for example :)

The reason for my current lack of time is that I am currently working on a side project again (next to the ambiera game development tools). The side project is a game, and altough not the first game I've been involved with since I am running my own company, it will be the first one about which I will blog about. Unfortunately, I am unable to tell much more yet, but I hope to be able to blog about it while it is still under development and give some hopefully interesting insights. I hope to start blogging about it within the next 30 days, and I think that it might be a bit interesting, especially because until now I've only written about game development libraries, and never actually about game development itself. So stay tuned.

fourteen comments, already:

Cool, niko.
Will it use Irrlicht or IrrKlang?
Btw, when was the last time you ever developed a Game?

can’t wait :-) I’m curious about how (if you used the ambiera tool set) you tied them together to create an engine, or just a used them as a loosely coupled set of tools

SWEET ;-). Just to ask the same question again. – Will the game use the Irrlicht 3D Engine? – Will it use the IrrKlang or IrrEdit? – What genre will it be? – How many people are working on it?

Probably Niko is working on Crysis 2 which will use Irrlicht 2.0 :D

Finally! If you aren’t involved in developing a game, who should do it?
BTW personally I hope it’s a RPG…

I also hope you learn a lot of things you can put back in irrlicht…

That’s cool, Niko. :) Well, we’ll all be reading in anticipation to see what you come up with. :D

I cannot tell to much at this time, I’m sorry. But don’t expect too much, it’s not a very huge game, but could be interesting anyway, I think :)

I think probably Niko is working on Unreal Tournament 2009 which will improve the game UT3 like ut2004 did with ut2003. And for those who are intersted crytek has patented names “CRYSIS WARS” and “WORLD IN CRYSIS” they may be a mmorpg and a multiplayer game or probably the name of crysis 2 and crysis 3 in trilogy.
Only thing that puzzles me is that why they always CRY. laughter is good medicine. anyway, Crysis really is graphically great game. It may become a benchmark for atleast mid 2009. Epic, Valve and id really have lots of ground to cover in meantime.
