.6.2.2002. A Long awaited announcement... is here...

It has been some time since our last update. Many fans and community members have been writing emails, asking what is happening with 3rd World and why we are short on news and releases on our official site.

As we have explained in our open letter to community, developing a game like 3rd World is a very hard task. We have been in a difficult situation for a long time, and we feel that community support in these tuff moments was the greatest encouragement for all.

Because of this, we plan on writing a new design document which will explain in more details our problems and our progress. It will feature details on current state of 3rd World, and story about our main achievements in last couple of months.


.6.2.2002. New Clans

We have a lot of clans reported for 3rd World Clans section.

We will release this new page very soon now, but we still feel that some clans are missing. Please submit your clan info and clan logo as soon as possible, so we could focus on designing and finishing this new web page.


.24.10.2001. 3rd World Clans Section Opens Today!!

We have opened special official clan page section our site!

Let us just say this one in public, for the record:
All Clans and their members will be invited to join beta-testing

There will also be a clan update as some of their link changed.

This was a small official word, as we are getting a lot of emails these days.


.05.09.2001. Preview at World of Gaming

There is one new preview of 3rd World.

There is a brand new development diary at VoodooExtreme!

This one covers info on beta-test rescheduling and explanation of one new 3rd World feature, so called "Personal Database Module". Check it out:

.24.07.2001. Announcement

Hello everyone!!

It is time to update the info on 3rd World as we've been silent for quite some time now!

Let's start with the information that eUniverseGames is officially dead, and those screens we've send them (that were published for 24h only) have disappeared into thin air.

We will release them again, on some other net location, soon enough.

Second information is that we will release more in-station screens soon, so be ready.

Third info is that poll results will be up in couple of days, so if you haven't voted already, please do.

Forth info: We will release some new Game Information Pages that will explain some new, and yet never-before-seen-in-any-game, features that will 3rd World have.

And fifth and the last one: This little pause was due to our top-secret arrangements inside the studio, as we have some new plans and will start some reorganizing so expect more info to come on this.

Cheers...


.04.06.2001. New Development diary and screens at VE

New development diary is up at VoodooExtreme. 6 exclusive shots are included in this article. Jump to VE and check it out.

Here's a little snap:

Plan for First Test is almost finished. We will start first testing at the end of August. This test will be conducted in cooperation with the most dedicated member of our community and few other chosen candidates.

Test will feature Internet play in both environments. We will use the test as a beginning of a true persistent world that will be active all the time, and will move through couple of phases. During all tests, game will be constantly upgraded and new elements inserted on a weekly basis. In this way we will test the most important characteristic of our game engine, and that is modularity. Player will not download new patches, but instead, they will download only the modules they need or which they have upgraded through the game play.

So, now you know.
So, now you get ready.
