Subsoap has the following to say at BF:

"One of my favorite games of all time is StarCraft. It has taken Blizzard 11 years to finally finish StarCraft 2 and it will be out at the end of this month. If our next game is somehow still not ready by the time SC2 is released I will not spend time playing it until we do get it released even though I've been waiting all this time to play it. Yes, we are doing our very best to get the next game out in the next few days, and it will be FREE . I'll say more once it's released.

Brian"

The whole topic is here.

 Maybe we can get Brian to visit us, after all, we would allow him to not only post his newsletter, but link to the subsoap website? Cordia, want to write him and give it a shot??

If they have a logo I can pick up, I'd be happy to put a clickable widget on the homepage. I could do that for Total Eclipse, as well, if PixelBunny thinks it would be appropriate.

Welcome, Brian!

So FS2 really is still in the works?  Oh, joy!  Feel free to hype the game, we're all ears... or eyes, in this case ;)

Thanks so much for coming by, Brian!

EDIT: In an aside, I've never played Starcraft, but I watched the trailer for the second game today, and was completely enthralled. I need to look up some gameplay videos now to see if it would be worth playing eventually.

I started reading this because it had the words StarCraft 2 and that was like a magnet but then I found about this game and visited the site. My, the illustrations look gorgeous! And it's a card game?

@phatkat I did not get the logo reference, what was it about?

Faerie Solitaire is really a lot of fun, a great way to distract yourself.  A must-try, already bought ;)

  Ok, I'll be the first to admit that I'm not good at keeping up.  But, who's Brian?  A developer?  Did he do Faerie Solitaire?  If so, I would like to say that I love the game.  It's one I go to when I need to zone out.  Just the graphics alone calm me down.  Especially when I'm listening to Mozart in the background.  Not that the FS music isn't good, mind you, but nothing can calm me down faster than Mozart.

Brian is Subsoap, and he did Faerie Solitaire, you are correct. :) It's one that has been on my wishlist for a while, as it's such a lovely little game. I adore the artwork.

PixelBunny, if you have a logo that you would like me to use, I will post it as a clickable link on the homepage of the website, and also on the "links" page. I think it would be better to use a Clockwork Man logo than the Total Eclipse one, simply because of name recognition value in the Clockwork Man brand. ETA: I just snipped what I thought would look good on the home page - it's snipped from the cover of the extras book. If you'd rather I use a different logo, just PM it to me or post it here. I surely don't want to step on any toes or violate anyone's copyright!

Brian, I'm going to try copying your logo from the signature unless you have a different one you'd rather use. It's great to see you here, BTW! We had a wonderful time here before and during the Clockwork Man 2 launch, and it would be fun if we can do something similar when Faerie 2 comes out. This site was designed to be pretty free and open, and we can do and say pretty much what we please, unlike a lot of the commercial sites.

 Thank you all for the welcomes. :)

Just going to sleep now at 10AM... to give you a glimpse into the glamorous life of a game developer. Most of our team lives in different timezones, and I am the one who coordinates everything, plus I do everything else I possibly can. :)

phatkhat, that one works if you wish to use it, and I thank you for doing so.

The guys over at Subsoap were working hard on FS2, but some kind of SNAFU came up with the BF licensing (hearsay, but I think this is what happened) and since they couldn't work out the details with BF, the game was not released as it was supposed to be a few months ago.

I imagine I could get a hold of him at their website, I'm hoping that Brian will stop back in and update us here.

There must be something contractual about it, I'm thinking.  BF has the first Faerie Solitaire and it's wildly popular.  I suspect they couldn't come to an agreement about the proposed installments of the game (I think 6 separate installments were planned?).

EDIT: I went ahead and e-mailed them, so hopefully they'll stop by and update us smiley15

The problems with releasing FS2 were numerous: the engine was old and not so great, my development partner wasn't into it, and portals were not excited about releasing "episodes" (despite each one being the length of FS1) so I rethought what could be done with FS2 ( a lot was done with FS2 before I decided to move everything over to FSO... looking back now maybe I should have just focused on turning FS2 into just one game and not worry about doing FSO until later but... that's in the past now). The lesson I learned was that I still can't try to be too ambitious without being able to afford the cost of hiring a full time team (also making promises is a bad thing! I was sure multiple times that we would be able to release something but really without hiring someone full time they can't be depended on to make the progress needed to get things release). My plan for FS2 is to release all of its content as a mostly free online game called Faerie Solitaire Online, and then release desktop games with the same content (but with all of the benefits of a desktop game) later. This plan is in motion but it's taking a long time. Here's a screenshot from the online game about a month ago: http://i.imgur.com/fZlkZ.png since then it has changed a bit and it's still changing.

I can't promise when it will be released (it will be released when it's done) as there are two limiting factors on progress: money - we don't have a lot of it - FS sold well enough for us to make more games but not to hire anyone full time, and time - I work all day pretty much every day on game development stuff, and have for a few years now, and even then I can only make so much progress.

Status right now is: we are still working on the iDevice (iPod, iPad, iPhone) version of FS1. When it's completed we'll have the game in a new engine and so will be able to do a proper Mac release too, and release a better Win version. We are hoping the iDevice version will make enough money to fund the development of FSO, and eventually release one or more new downloadable FS games in the future.

Thank you all for your support. I would not be able to do this without you, and I promise I will continue to do my very best. :)

Best,
Brian

Brian, you do realize that you have an untapped resource here at the Pub, right?  FREE game testers.  We have some great beta testers here that will give you honest and specific feedback on your game(s). ;)

Please count me in as a tester, if the opportunity presents itself.  I loved Fairie Solitaire would love the chance to help bring a sequel to market.  I have done a fair amount of software testing in the corporate environment, so I can break some code!

Interesting that the idea of full length chapters was not embraced. Seems that Dracula 3 has just been parceled into chapters, and then there is the Fall Trilogy, which has rather short chapters, IMHO. And what about Sam & Max??????

Let us know if there is anything we can do to help!

Well, with Sam & Max you do at least get a casual game's playing time per episode for a casual game's price. But still, the cutting up into episodes for games is a bit alarming...

And here I was, thinking I was over my Solitaire phase. Looks like I will dive right back into it with a game that looks this nice.
