Respected veterans, friends, addicts and slightly less addicted ones (we know, its weird, but they do exist!),
The first steps towards a bigger and better Call of Combat have been taken. We are at the beginning of a long and demanding process. Because we take this project very serious it will consume the majority of our time and energy. Developing a high-end independent game and approaching it in a professional matter is not as easy as it might sound. Of course CoCv1 was up and running for over ten years. Only bits and pieces however are suitable for use in CoCv2.
Call of Combat v1
As you may or may not have noticed, the old game will be taken offline the 30th of this month and the website has been taken down already (link to the old site at the bottom of this page). We have decided to do so for two main reasons. Firstly the financial aspect of keeping the game servers up. And secondly because we want to invest all of our efforts into v2 and not be distracted by whatever is happening in v1.
What can you do?
We greatly appreciate everyone's help or offers to help during the last ten years while CoCv1 was up. And we know there are still a lot of people who care for CoC and are willing to help out if they can. We clearly recognize the added value which you guys can create for this game. Therefore we are determined to inform you about development updates whenever we can. In order to enable us to do so, please take a second to sign up for our mailing list on the right!
The website and mailing list are only the start. During the development process, we will be setting up a two-way communication channel with the community. For example: when the time is right, we intend to organize a real-life development 'kick-off' meeting here in Amsterdam to present our concept to you and listen to your feedback and ideas (so start saving for that plane ticket! :)). Also, at some point we will open up a forum to discuss certain features and test ideas. At a later stage we plan to form a test group to test the game as soon as the developers are ready for it. More about all of this later.
For now, we respectfully ask for your patience. We are working very hard (our girlfriend's are displeased already and we have only just started..) and intend to show you more as soon as possible!
With great enthusiasm,
Florian & Erik
The Development Team
