By far the most common question Team Dystopia has recieved during development has been; "when's Dystopia coming out?" Right up until today the answer has always been "when it's done". Well, the last week of testing has made the team very confident that the Dystopia demo is indeed done.
We are aiming to release the demo before 11:59pm GMT on 9th of September 2005.
Here's a few time zone conversions:
23:59:00 Friday September 9, 2005 in GMT converts to:
16:59:00 Friday September 9, 2005 in US/Pacific
19:59:00 Friday September 9, 2005 in US/Eastern
09:59:00 Saturday September 10, 2005 in Australia/Brisbane
To celebrate the announcement of a release date, we have a new wallpaper which you can grab in a variety of sizes from the gallery:
It's been an incredible 2 years since the Dystopia project was kicked off and as you can imagine everyone who's played a part is extremely eager to see what the gaming public's reaction is to it. You can help us out by spreading word about the imminent release, especially to server admins.
We'll be spending the next week continuing to heavily test the release candidate, finishing off the new player guide and organising mirrors for the demo installer. If you know anyone who can help out with a mirror, please have them email me on email@example.com
