The currently available version of Memories of the Great War was recently featured on the IllFatedGamingTV-YouTube Channel in a livestream hosted by RedMageJoe.

Yes, I am a bit late to promotional party – in fact I was late for the stream on that day too – but for some good and some mundane reasons.
This was a very nice gesture on the behalf of the folks of IllFatedGaming, and enjoyed every minutes of watching RedMageJoe sweat through some of the more difficult missions. I was quite gratified to see that there was still some enjoyment to be had in these mission from a time when I was just starting out.
RedMageJoe is still hosting a weekly Freespace 2-streaming; going through a lot of the Freespace 2 fan-communities content. This week’s upcoming stream will be on a campaign that has been quite influential on my work – Shrouding the Light.
Feel free to stop by their channel and do the usual YouTube-things if you like what you see.

Of course, I did not just stand by and watch; actually I made a bunch of notes that will serve as a round of improvements to come in the 1.1 version of Hellgate: Ikeya and Light of Antares.
Just to give you a taste: I am going to implement a new difficult scaling solution for the Mission 3 in Hellgate: Ikeya and review the AI override commands in Light of Antares. Both emerged as major pressure points during the stream.
And of course, I will have all of the text reviewed again; as I could pretty much find the age of each passage of text (and not just by the amount of spelling mistakes).
