Are there any great members of this august board who have more precise information than the generalities on the website and Jeff's interview contain about the release date for GF3?

Sorry that this isn't *exactly* GF2 related! And thanks!

At the end of the interview that can be read here, some time in March is the estimated release date.

Despite my usually patient nature, I find myself getting up every morning thinking to myself like Bob Wylie would: "Baby steps to Geneforge 3! Baby steps to March! Baby steps to Geneforge 3"

Ya, but that release date's just for Mac. PC users have to wait until a few months after March.

That's incredibly annoying for me. I was so excited when I heard the G3 was coming out, but I was so bummed when Jeff said that SpidWeb was making it for Mac first.

Jeff always makes for Mac first. Since he's just about the only person who does this, I think you have little to complain about. :P

I'm constantly surprised (pleasantly, mind you) how many Windows users are enthusiastic supporters of Jeff's humble but highly respectable shareware firm.

i find that rather insulting,xbox games only give you the initial hour and a half of entertainment,soemtimes 6 or more hours,but geneforge,without the *@##$$% load of programmign for the uber graphics,if very good,and interesting,because of the replay value,blades of avernum,while having even less graphics(slightly only mind you) has UNLIMITED and quite excellent replay value

Amen to that, Icshi and Taker.

I suppose the trend of the day is fancy graphics and that's that. Though of course there are quite a few CRPGs that do have fancy graphics and good playing value.

Still. I'm also constantly happy that Jeff gets the business he does and continues making games like he does. I may whine and ***** about his games from time to time, but after playing them all at least twice, I can't say anything that. . .

. . . baby steps or no baby steps, damn it it's hard to wait.

And knowing that A4 may come out next year (I'm hoping this year, but that may be too soon) the baby steps are harder to make.

At any rate. It teaches us patience.

patience is worse than time,its a drag and a boost,but there is no inbetween,atleast with time you can plan things and all,but patience is simply seeing how long you can pent up your rage,bah,patience is for the slow hearted,these days,go go go,fight fight fight,and so on,alot of people apart from me wont be to oeasy on the subject of patience

Time is a relative thing. To you, a couple months may be an eternity, to others it may be but a moment.

March....only a few brief days away for us mac users. *beaming*

Now, then...if onyl we knew *when* in march. We might be a week away...or over a month away.

(crossing fingers, clicking heels together, rubbing my rabbit's foot, etc. that it's sooner, rather than later...)

In other news, I'm debating whether I should actually get GF3 when it comes out. GF1 was exciting at the beginning and disappointing at the end, and GF2 was fun for gameplay, but kind of wearisome by the end. I don't think I'd be interested in playing GF3 if it's just the same thing as GF2, which was nearly the same thing as GF1.

We'll let you know.

I have high hopes for this one. But, who knows? Apparently according to that interview Jeff has a plan for several more of these games and in this one things hit the fan.

Oh goodie! I love it when things hit the fan! (Story-wise, anyway.)

I really do hope Jeff makes at least a dozen more Geneforge games. I love the blend between SF and fantasy, and as a history student have always been fascinated by how power corrupts.

I am thinking that they should release the two demos early, and make the windows one a bit before the mac, so that windows users get a little bit of consolation.

They're released in the order in which they're finished. Since Jeff makes the games using a Mac, they're made for Mac first.

I'm curious, whats Mac like and why do people buy them when it's so difficult to get games for them? (I haven't seen a Mac since grade school)
