WC Saga Mac Port Back In Work

The WC Saga team has broken its eight month silence on the web with news that the Mac OS port of their game is now moving forward. They've added a new programmer to help with the task, although there is no release date yet.
Again, we are very sorry for the sparse updates lately, but we all have underestimated real life responsibilities. Rest assured things are finally moving along on several fronts and that includes a Mac port!
Aginor and Luke have also improved the Simulator Mission / TrainSim addon for WC Saga with an automated installer. You can download the update here (50 k zip).
Hello everybody! There were numerous requests for a simple simulator mission for Saga already, so I decided to create one.

You can choose between different ships, weapons, numbers of wingmen and enemies ingame. The mission briefing tells you everything you need to know about the mission.

Also the second version is already in the works. It will take some additional time until a release though.

Chris Roberts Meet-up in Montréal

Chris Roberts will be in Montréal Wednesday morning for a press conference to talk about Star Citizen and their partnership with Behaviour Interactive. Behaviour will be working on much of Star Citizen's online and network components.
What: Meeting with Behaviour and Chris Roberts, Founder of Cloud Imperium and Legendary Creator of the Wing Commander series

Why: Learn about the Star Citizen game (http://www.robertsspaceindustries.com/, which Behaviour will be working on in collaboration with Cloud Imperium in 2013

Behaviour previously worked on - among other things - Halo Waypoint, which is basically the social network for the Halo franchise through which they release all the trailers, blogs, news, and more. Waypoint is also integrated right into the games themselves and just might give an indication of the kind of connected experience we might be able to expect from Star Citizen.

The event will be held at Behaviour's offices at 10A.M. and is open to the business, tech, and gaming media. You can find more details about the event at Marketwire.
