    Glad to see this is finally happening. Get something presentable and this will be a seven figure crowdfunding campaign for sure.

    Cauatiously optimistic, but if Underworld Ascendant taught me anything, it's that a dream team does not necessarily translate into a dream development team.

    Agreed. I've been asking for this for awhile, so I'm super psyched that it's actually happening, with the original developers and all. Really interested to see what they come up with as a modern spiritual successor.

    I heard about this, and they have Julian LeFay involved too. Hopefully it goes somewhere.

    I watched a few videos by him, and liked them. But who is he, Ian, actually? Was or is he a game developer?

    Hear me out: collaborate with Hello Games. They've been doing some fucking incredibly stuff with No Man's Sky and Sean Murray has expressed some interest in a procgen fantasy game set on a single world. They have a proprietary engine that looks and runs great, tons of valuable experience with not only procedural generation but asynchronous multiplayer (which was part of the design for TES Chapter III Tribunal from what I heard). They have great artists and it's a really efficient studio. Last I heard they have 20 people on payroll across three projects one of them being No Man's Sky which is still receiving major free content releases.

    I hope they stick with the scale of the planned sequel to Daggerfall. Daggerfall was too fucking big but this is 1247km (775 square miles, probably about 500 square miles without the whitespace and the water). Perfect.

    So, what do they bring to the table?
    They can't even claim to be "idea guys" because the idea already exists. They pointed to a game then demanded some people make them a sequel for free.

    Wouldn't say this is an instant RIP for a game. As an example Ready or Not, the upcoming tactical FPS in the vein of SWAT 3 and 4 was started off by unpaid workers who worked for a little over a year and after they released the reveal trailer they got a private investor to come onboard and fund the game, and today it's close to finished and in a presentable state.

    Indigo's videos on TES and the Jensen interview in particular are excellent, but I don't see this project going anywhere. They are far better off getting in touch with Daggerfall Unity and integrating with that. Joined the Discord nevertheless.

    I hope they don't use Unity.
    It'd be pretty cool if the graphics/art was similiar to daggerfall, with sprites and stuff.

    I like their idea, I'm just not sure who is going to give them money for that.

    Apparently LeFay removed any reference to this on his LinkedIn recently.

    Several developers of Arena and Daggerfall (Julian LeFay, Ted Peterson and Vijay Lakshman) are working on a new 'Elder Scrolls esque' RPG alongside Indigo Gaming, a retro YouTuber. It's supposed to be an open world, dynamic, class-based adventure which expands upon the successes of Daggerfall and rectifies its (many) failures.
