It is great that we know what is going on. I for one am willing to wait longer for a new sequence to be added if it expands on something in the later chapters. This may give Vivindi the incentive to let you continue working on the project. Keep up the great work and remember that 90% is still an 'A'

Yes.  The decision to only release Chapters 1 & 2 of the storyline hit people pretty hard.  While this new addition doesn't change that, it at least gives the game a much more exciting ending without modifying the overall storyline too much, just in case.  It may have a strong impact with Vivendi as well, which is why we decided to have it in there before presenting the game to them.

Thanks again, and yes, I'd definitely give the game an A based on how it is today.  However, these last 100 issues are things we really need done, in order to make a good impression.  Only a handful of them are critical.  The rest are things like adding missing animations and fixing sequences so that characters aren't doing weird things. :P

Hey Yonk, are you considering adding long-standing forum members to the credits? I think they might deserve it for being so loyal for years. Just a suggestion. And no, I didn't mean myself :P I've been here only a couple years, I just thought some people who'd been here waiting, defending against some naysayers, been loyal might deserve little credit at the end ;)

Most of the long-standing forum members were actually on the team at some point, so their names are already in there. :P

Additionally, around a month ago, we decided to add something extra to the end of the game.
There's the answer to my question which got a :suffer: in the Fannatics forum. ;D

So far the good news... j/k :P

Great job on reaching 90 %. I've waited this long, I won't mind waiting a bit longer.
What is seriously at risk though is me attending the release-parteh. As I wrote somewhere before, that could put it in September, but September is 'full' on my part. With all that'll be going on at work at that time, I'll consider myself lucky if I can get a few days extra to prepare my visit to the USA (West Coast) and after I come back, to recover from the effects of the inevitable jet-lag that way.

As if anybody pays attention to the credits anyway.  ;P Still, good work guys. I hope this gets out the door soon and makes some waves. You people have certainly worked hard enough for it.

I think Cez said it's around 200 in total.  I actually thought it would be a lot more than that.  It certainly felt like a lot more! :P

Trust me, if your name was in there, you'd pay attention. XB  Actually, there'll be some concept art interspersed between the pages, and a nice song to listen to, so I think it'll be nice to watch even if your name's not there.

Cool, I was planning on watching them anyway but now I'll definitely want to watch them. :D

Just so you know, I always watch the credits, even at the movies I try to stay as long as I can, which is usually right before the cleaning people scamper in and I have to leave. Don't have that problem with DVD's.
Anyhoo, naturally I'll be paying even more attention than usual at the credits of TSL. 8)

They usually have a "special thanks" section in the credits.  I imagine the people that contributed to the project but didn't hold an official position on the team would be listed there.  I'm glad the team chose to add on more content... this might just be the "ace in the hole" that increases the chances for a second and third game.

I have the impression everyone who contributed to the project held an official position on the team at that period in time. I mean, if even the Beta Testers were/are listed on the Team-page, that means everyone contributing has (had) an official position.

this might just be the "ace in the hole" that increases the chances for a second and third game.
I beg to differ. The only extra thing that's hanging in the balance is the third chapter of part 1. Part 2 and 3 are scrubbed. So, that extra content probably has information from Part 2 and 3. Heck,it might even include information from Chapter 3. :gossip:
