I've been wondering, when is Blades of Avernum ever going to come out? I know Jeff is working hard, but shouldn't he be giving out screenshots or somethin'? :confused:

Did I ever told you I married Kyhar? She is, however, too freakin' old!

It'll be a long time. Something like 1.5 to 2.5 years. Jeff's only really just started working on programming it (I think).
If you want screenshots, well, they probably won't really look at all different to A3. Unless you meant screenshots of the editor(!), in which case you'll have to wait a very long time.

Yes it was the Editor. Thats practicly why I'm gonna download BoA. Nothin's better than editing!

Impossible. How can he just started programming when he had more than half a year to do it?

And 2.5 years? That's crazy!!

Yea I agree. I've heard all over that people are saying it'll be at least 2 and a half years. Personally... that's plain absurd. I KNOW it's gunna' seem that long (god i feel like an 8 year old waiting for christmas), but a year and half is way more resonable. Say what you like, but once Jeff gets what he's doin' down pat, it'll move along real smooth like (haha)! Just don't lose faith people. Jeff has yet to upset us. And while I'm sure we ALL want this game now (i know i do), it isn't gunna take forever!

It will be a year to a year and a half.

Yeah, that sounds about right to me. I mostly heard next fall, but that information is more than likely a bit dated.

Remember, Jeff is creating two games, and he's making the Editor, which is somewhat like a game.

Presumably he also needs to write that extra fourth built in scenario too, as well as port the original three, but I'm guessing that'll be less work than writing a whole new fourth one. I'm hoping he does some improving on the first three while he's at it (although I wouldn't mind too much if he didn't, but it'd be nice)

Investing time is one surefire way of assuring high quality. So I for one am content to wait. It can't be too fun to work with thousands of people breathing down your neck.

Eh... agreed to a degree. I incourage people to take however long they need to make a game, but in some cases, it just gets ridiculus (TF2,DN:F,HL,CS:CZ...).

Thanks. Anyway, for more information, go to "When." It now tells when BoA will come out.
