Default I was hoping for this

When I first heard about the stretch goal of an Ogre video game adaptation, my first assumption is that it would be a relatively cheap quick and dirty remake of the original Apple game. I'm happy to be proved wrong with evidence that it's going to incorporate GEV and presumably Shockwave as well.

EDIT: No, that was a silly question.

I am really looking forward to playing this! It looks great.

I wonder if this is just a general placeholder for all things Ogre Video Game-related or if there's a more specific purpose. talking about how to use it? bug/enhancement questions? something else?

Hi folks :)

My name's Jake and I'm the Community Manager at Auroch Digital, the developers of the video game adaptation of Ogre!

I just wanted to say hello and let you guys know that development on the project is progressing fantastically. Myself and Auroch Digital producer Peter (who is on here as XeroXeroXero) will be in here as often as possible answering any questions or feedback you may have about the game.

We can't wait to reveal more about our adaptation, so look out for announcements very soon!

If there is anything you need, be sure to let myself or Peter know.

Thanks :)

A big hello from me too!

Just to quickly answer a few of the questions straight off the bat;

Our game is definitely much more than a simple port of the (excellent) '86 release. I can't wait to show you more of the game in the near future, but if you'd like a sneak peek then this post has some screens taken from a little while back in development.

And yes, this forum is specifically for this digital adaptation of Ogre. This specific thread is a space to ask early initial questions you might have, but we have bigger plans down the line...

Thanks!

Brilliant! Be careful what you wish for... ;-)

I love the early looks at this, but it makes me wonder if there will be other themes for the maps available. For example, the current G1 that's displayed has a bit of a drab feeling to it (I get the sense it's suffering from the same "not finished because we are testing" the units have); is that the only color you are planning on, or will we be able to re-skin the maps ("classic" 1970s line art, 80s bright colors, custom)?

What are the minimum system requirements to play the game (comfortably)?

Will there be a minimalist straight boardgame view for those with limited hardware?

Any further talks on a Mac/Linux port?

You mentioned this specific thread as a place for questions, but are you talking about the sub-thread as a whole for new topics to be started? I assume that's the intention, otherwise this specific one "I was hoping for this" is going to get pretty crowded. Maybe if you wanted to organize a bit with a handful of "Official" Topics to guide folks, that would be helpful?

Feel free to hack up this post and move questions to topics as appropriate :-)

This can't come soon enough; thanks for taking this on. :-)

What devices will we be able to play this game on? PC, console, phone, tablet, VR, direct brain implant? :)

So will we need an open internet connection to play the game?

If it's on Steam, the general answer will be yes. :-(

There are some offline things you can do for Steam, but YMMV
