So a thing happened at E3. It was pretty vague, but this logo...

Dean Hall did say multiple times how he was inspired by games like SS13 in his development of DayZ and whatnot.

Who knows what this 'game' will be, though I would hedge my bet its just a reference.

Like any ss13 rerelease attempt, it probably won't actually ever come out OR It'll come out but never even approach a state where it's fun to play. Good luck though.

Should we be concerned about existing NT logos and stuff getting trademarked and then us getting takedown shit? I know jack all about copyright law, is that even possible?

This is just going to be some shitty Space-Engineers/DayZ mashup.

It's one thing to take inspiration from another person's work. It's entirely another thing to completely take a piece of content from that work, especially a logo, something which is SPECIFICALLY USED for branding and identification. Not cool.

persistent world with permadeath sounds dandy and all, but very few of those games succeed. Usually it means vast concessions have to be made in order to not let a select group of hardcore gamers dominate a game.

DayZ and H1Z1 had the same issue with large groups going to a server and just taking over major areas and killing everybody, or swarming random servers, etc.

PVP games in general where you can form groups usually end that way.

In Archeage for example, Goonswarm was on my server, the one guild owned almost the entire game including enemy territory (They couldn't attack you unless you attacked them, but they could also just hide in their houses and they were usually over-geared compared to everybody because they owned everything.)

Depends... if its only used in the trailer as an easter egg then its within Fair Usage.

If they have something in the game beyond an easter egg then its not fair use.

Seems like he is perfect for the role, being a SS13 fan.

As for the content shown it definately has the right vibes, at the end as well that clearly shows that death isn't an issue with clones being around. Also seems to immply the world is connected. Maybe it will be along the lines of people being free to create their own station with others joining, with traitors and such randomly appearing. Like the escape shuttle actually brings you to arrivals at another station that kind of stuff.

"Players will build, live in and inevitably die in huge floating galactic constructions as humanity makes its first steps colonizing the universe," according to the trailer description. "Technology from Improbable allows ION to have a massive interconnected universe with fully simulated environments such as power grids, air pressure and heat; all to help stave off the unending vacuum of space."


Improbable is the NT corp so far

Improbable isn't an in game thing, it's a literal company that's providing some level of support on this.

It's like they made the initial atmos station 13 version of SS13 and Dean wants to build it up as spessmens

Has potential

But like everything early access, it means nothing until it's actually playable

This.

Making a good game out of this concept is going to be incredibly difficult.

And I can't really say DayZ was that much of a success in the end...

From what Dean said it seems like this is going to be more like a massively multiplayer space stations game thing, that's the impression the trailer gave me. Not really like SS13 in the sense of rounds and gamemodes, definitely going to be different.
</speculation>

So in that case I'd say more reference.
I lurk quite often...

I don't really see how you can say "reference" considering Dean basically wants it to be the same game.
I code for the code project and moderate the code sections of the forums.

Feedback is dumb and it doesn't matter
