You're probably wondering who we are and what this forum is doing here...
I'm Mike, and I'm the co-founder of indie games development outfit called "EiKON Games".
In a previous life I was known round these here parts as "MikeyBear" and was one of the original BarrysWorld team.

The game we're creating (Epoch: Incursion) is an open world, tactical first person shooter, with a heavily cooperative multiplayer slant.

You can see some *very early* pre-alpha environment footage here:



...and read more about the game here:
http://www.epoch-incursion.com

Right now all our personal resources are pretty much being poured into the development of the game (we're currently completely unfunded) and so Deebs has very kindly volunteerd some forum space and web resources for our fledgling venture which is why we suddenly popped up here.

Looking good considering its Pre-Alpha footage Mike, any rough idea when we'll be seeing some sort of playable demo or such?

Difficult to say precisely at this stage given the way that we're having to build it (fitting it around jobs and young families etc.) but we'll have something playable for people in some regard later this year.

Will follow the project with interest, if i run out of a contract, i could even pop my CV over to you guys as i have a 10 year track-record in gamesdev ;)

If nothing else, might offer some professional pointers.

Looks very good for pre-alpha. Will keep an eye on this.

I need something that will make my new PC bleed :)

Actually it'd be better if they just pretended to like each others shoes.

Updates please MikeyBear!

You should do a making-of column - like the old Andrew Braybrook ones in Zzap!64 :)

That's not a bad idea actually ...I (we) do blog occasionally at a couple of places (working on one right now in fact) but up til now I've struggled to make those consistent and regular ...I need to get on that, clearly :)
Massive update is imminent btw ;)

Deebs told me off for not pimping my other thing here as well ...SOooooo, for the last year or so I've been podcasting about your human video games:

http://www.returnfirepodcast.com/

The whole shebang is actually hosted at FH and we stream the show LIVE on Friday nights @9pm UK with a chatroom for the live listeners on Quakenet (#returnfirepodcast).

Here's show #40: http://returnfirepodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/RFP_e40-10032012.mp3 ...I kinda like this one most of the recent shows (mostly 'cos I stitch my co-host Alex up :))
We're on iTunes or you can sub via RSS if you're so inclined.

Mystic_G is a regular listener and sometimes occasional contributor to the show, which is mostly a bunch of old men sitting around talking games, laughing and indulging in some childish name calling.
You are of course welcome to join in if its your sort of thing ...just try it ...the first one is free ...go on ...they're all free thereafter as well ...it's free. Did I mention that?

No pressure obviously... *applies pressure*.
