What I would like to see for this game is a proper expansion. Add another episode or two, a few new weapons and enemy types and some other goodies. This game was really fun, and I would be willing to pay for more content.

Umm, is this game still being developed?
If not, will there be a steel storm2, possibility to create maps and mods?

And i would like to ask if it has a active online community.

The game is being improved, small things are being added, etc. Steel Storm 2 is unlikely, however DLCs will be coming. You already can make missions for the game using built-in mission editor SandStorm. Level design tool will be coming soon too.

Great game guys. I have really been enjoying it. I bought it directly from your web site so you would know that it was definitely a Linux sale. I appreciate you that you came out with a Linux version of your game.

Все зависит от покупательской способности игроков :) Если народ продолжит покупать SS:BR и дополнения к нему, то естественно Prophecy имеет право на жизнь.
Мы кстати в update включили Message of the Day, так то скоро объявим конкурс на дизайн миссий и уровней ;)
Нам бы на Российский рынок игру продвинуть, да вот только я не знаю ни каких сайтов которые обзор игры сделали бы :(

игромания, нави, и так далее. свяжитесь и попробуйте.
и устройте промо-акции на фэйсбуке и вконтакте с раздачей стимовских/десура ключей вступившим счастливчикам. это увеличит базу игроков, привлечёт внимание коммьюнити и увеличит продажи малой кровью без особой рекламы. даже крупные проекты так делают.

The good: ========= -Polished: good graphics, sound and gameplay -Challenging enough without being too challenging. -Translated into a lot of languages and you can add your own. -Collaborative mission editor, also works while playing! -DRM-free -Uses GPLed darkplaces engine (also means you should be able to do lots of modding, additionally to the available in-game editor.) -Cross-platform. Runs natively (and perfectly) on GNU/Linux. The singleplayer alone is definitely worth the cheap price. If…
