The NDA doesn't allow for much information for the public. Taitale is working with another company/entity, who I imagine is funding the game at this point. Sypheria stated that the current game is further along than the game that was released to us a year or two ago. This doesn't mean the game will be in our hands anytime soon...

This is also an assumption on my part, but I can't imagine they are working on this full time at this point. Maybe they are, but that seems kind of crazy.

We are working on NA fulltime and with a larger staff than we used to have.

Currently we're expanding crafting, gathering, exploration, quests and a massive upgrade to visuals.

Anything you might be able to show us on the visuals side of things, like a ship or planet model (stripped of any sensitive info, naturally)? Would love to see how things compare to before.

Everything visual is fully covered under the NDA.

One little nice thing I just finished a couple hours ago is the ability to add new resources very easily to the game and integrate them into any system.
So we can add special named resources to research or construct things.
Players could accumulate them through mining, exploring, loot drops or quests.

Not sure if you can speak on the topic, but I know the idea was being thrown around after the original alpha "release"... are you guys planning on having NPC factions in the game? Or will it strictly be PvP?

Glad to hear you guys are on full time, seems to be the best solution all around!

This is intriguing, lotsa speculation to do around this... :p
