WE DUNE NOW
Anyone else hype? Coming out this month. I didn't even know it was so soon. Stumbled on it when it was called shipbreakers.
Yes, I'm a shill.
"Blackbird Interactive is a game development company based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The company was founded by ex-members of Relic Entertainment, including key personnel who worked on Homeworld and Homeworld 2. Blackbird Interactive are currently working on Homeworld: Shipbreakers for Gearbox Software and providing technical assistance for their HD re-releases of the original games."
I'll keep an open mind and approach this with careful optimism. I wonder it it'll have basebuilding or it'll just be Homeworld 2.5D: Ground Control Bloogaloo
I guess we'll find out in a week.

Trailer suggests it doesn't, and you're just controlling a landship carrier that builds your units - with missions/story structure patterned the same way as in the original Homeworlds. They are relying too much on the nostalgia factor to try changing the formula in any way.
Fuckin Unity. I still can't decide if that looks horribly bad in technical sense or decent for the budget they had to work with. It's like both at the same time.
That fukcing awful artstyle. It's nothing like Homeworld - it's an uninspired attempt at mixing our current technology with colorful surfaces Homeworld was known for.
It's probably going to suck anyways - a failed attempt at a franchise cash grab from people who had nothing to offer the genre.
I'm more interested on when this big patch for homeworld remastered is coming since they only said they are working on one and it's nearly done but that was a long time ago and they ignore any requests for patch notes and what not.
