Tim Aste from Garage games recently posted some comments in the Tribalwar forums hinting of a new Tribes game.

Posting as "ajaxprojection", Tim left these messages in this thread at Tribalwar.

Hmm...might be a good idea to keep your eyes open around the GarageGames booth at GDC 2006. Never know what kinda things might be shown off...

Disclaimer: Mark don't murder me. :shrug:

Luckily MarkF is in France for a week so I am able to run amuck. I'm a big jerk like that. :)


ajaxprojection wrote:Hmm what's this stupid video I found in my blog? Don't remember where this came from.

Wonder if it's an old capture of what may be at GDC? Dunno.

Will probably gotta take this down soon though. That blog is outta control.

A new Tribes game created by the guys at Garage Games would indeed be exciting news. The new Torque Shader engine is amazing, and would allow the flexibility Tribes deserves. Let's hope a third installment of Tribes is in the works.

Notes:
MarkF is Mark Frohnmayer, one of the founders of Garage games, and responsible for Tribes revolutionary network code, and much of the original Tribes.
France is home of Vivendi Universal Games, VUG for short.
VUG owns the Tribes intellectual property.

I got to say, that terrain with that grass looks great. Atlas with the folliage replicator and some nice shadered water :) ... It kills most videocards.. but it looks awesome :)

No, sorry.

That is a placeholder model in the new shader engine. Looks like 95 -100 fov.

This is fantastic news. A new tribes game would make my day, my year even. Of course, my social life would disappear, but that is another story...

It looks suspiciously similar to the tribes logo, thus the reason for my chuckling

seriously, if you have enough time to search for / create images like that... working on the annihilation mod isn't a high enough priority for you! :twisted:
