Meanwhile, massforge is really starting to take off. We're up to 7 developers and 6 animators (counting the redoubtable hempknight. (Last call for animators!) istari_ala reminded me last Wednesday that it's probably wise to have a marketing-ish person on board at this point, and masaga just pointed out that we really need to get a composer for the soundtrack. I'll check with Ben Perry in case the CS Ph.D. program at Delaware hasn't eaten ever minute of his spare time.
At our meeting today, I pulled a "Darmok and Jalad at Tenagra" and managed to describe everything I had in mind in terms of allusions to Starcraft, Star Control II, Starship Troopers, The Lord of the Rings (especially Last Alliance and the Pelennor Fields), Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars (Episodes 1-3), Usagi Yojimbo, Space Usagi, and Voltron. The animation will be more original than this, I promise. ;-)
I'm still not sure about this working title, "Return of the Bunnies", though...
