Don't worry, Striker. The hammers are ringing quite loudly in our cutscene workshop, and they are turning out some very, very nice things. I think you're going to like them. But, as Tolwyn said, he has an update coming. He'll tell you more... (mysterious voice) in his own due time.
Goodness, I'm in an odd mood today. Sorry about that!
To clarify, the cutscenes are not rendered using the game engine (although the game engine looks nice enough, I wouldn't be ashamed if they were). The cutscenes are made using the program Tolwyn mentioned. I will say, they are looking rather nice, as well. You're in for a treat.
I don't think so. Even if the current Beta is playable und allready a lot of fun it still has some ugly bugs....like the Thunderbolld having a near infinit power supply for its guns. Sure its fun to blast everything to bits with it, but its not how the Thunderbold was and will be when we have fixed it.
Since all of the team that are working directly with the program...just three people...are having a hard time just before chrismas....exams, finals exams and a lot of work that has to be done before chrismas/new year.
