    Okay, well, I have my doubts about the feasibility given that they've already got their hands full on Underworld. But better them than some other douchebags.

    I'm cautiously optimistic.

    I'll be more optimistic if Underworld turns out well.

    Uh... seems a bit ambitious for a group that doesn't have much more than an early early alpha prototype for the current game they're working on...

    I'd like to know how the fuck they got the rights to do a sequel. I thought the SS sequel rights were in deep legal limbo.

    Otherside should invite Warren Spector to co produce.

    They stopped being in legal limbo. Night Dive Studios bought them a while ago.

    In reality it wasn't much of a limbo, they just belonged to an obscure insurance company that was hard to reach.

    Well it might be collaboration between both studios. With kickstarter coming they will be able to gather money and hire more people for this project.

    Also system shock 3 should get something like 4mln easily especially with some of original creators behind it.

    I'd love to think that Otherside isn't in bed with the thinking of Fargo and Friends, I guess we'll have to see.

    Dude Underworld isn't even out from design phase.
    Ofcourse they will do kickstarter now*. Imo they announced it early they will be doing some iformation for moths leading to kickstarter late next year.

    I'm pretty sure they're planning on reusing the Underworld codebase (aka "improvisation engine") for SS3, which should cut the workload and costs a bit.

    The same can be said of TToN at the times of BT4 kickstarter.

    I think OtherSide would be open to Kickstarting (or perhaps Figstarting?) this before Underworld's release, but I don't think they have the manpower to spare at the moment. Unless they want to really half-ass the campaign, which would be bad.

    One possibility is that the Night Dive Studios people would do all the campaigning work.

    Uh, whoever had the rights to sell to Otherside at a price they could afford is p. fukkin stupid. Someone would have been willing to shell out real money. If not now, a few years ago.
