There hasn’t been any recent news from TFB other than the fact that they are currently working on a game that is not Star Control.
After thinking about the significance of this month for a while, I realized that it is now after the date April 11, 2006; it has been 3 years since Alex Ness has announced that they are interested in making a new Star Control game and they want us to show how strong the fan community is and send him e-mails showing our support.
Since their announcement, they have completed Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam and Madgascar 2. Alex has mentioned that the people at Activision have expressed “some interest” in a Star Control sequel.
I told myself, “Wow, it’s been 3 years”. Three years is a long time sometimes and it passed by so quickly. I have no way of knowing what Activision will say about Star Control after TFB finishes their current game and I will still keep my fingers crossed. I still have to wrap my head around the Activision-Blizzard merger; some games are either being published under Activision, Vivendi, Activision-Blizzard, cancelled or sent to other publishers.
I’m still hoping for a miracle. I can’t wait to see what the next TFB news post will be, new Star Control fan art and anything else that could put Star Control in the spotlight again for some good publicity.
