I ended up quitting around the time of some rework, but man I spammed so many pvp games. I remember having to wait until peak player times to get enough people for OCT. Never really saw Harvester games after big open world was added tho.

Really hoping to see rocket jump + afterburner + fusion cannon on some new assault-like frame. Still miss dogfighting above OCT's A objective

I loved playing FireFall so much that I wrote the scifi book "Battleframe" that was loosely inspired by some of my experiences in the world. Seeing the book published and available on Amazon was one of the most amazing experiences in my life. BTW - I'm three quarters of the way through book two in the series and I'm just about to release the audio book for Battleframe.

What I really liked about Firefall was the camera system for recording gameplay....it was awesome. You could create some quite spectacular videos at the click of a button.

My friends and I really missed Firefall. We used to spend our time exploring, climbing and gliding our way across the land.....looking forward to having those good times again. :)

Ah would you help in the Em8er novel too?

Is there a way where battleframe will have a mention of the em8er universe or some cross over stories?

let us all know when battleframe book 2 is done? :)

alphamachina ─ Firecat / Beta > onwards 'til the end.. Btw, is this Em8er game ever going to release, or is this one of those neverending development cycles where people buy millions of dollars worth of content they'll never get to use? I'm just wondering.

Grummz has made it quite clear that the game will only get a full release if the funding goals are met. So far each "milestone" fundraiser has far exceeded the goal markers. Additionally there are over 600 monthly subscribers which funds server upkeep and other parts of the project. (you can read more about the subscription here). There are playable demos available to anyone who has backed the project that show the current state of development. Grummz does plan on producing a timeline for the development alongside the kickstarter which will fund a full time dev team. There is an end goal planned with the intention of further expansions paid for by crowdfunding.

All in all there's no guarantee right now but I see a lot of support from the community, passion from the devs, and actual demos that show progress. It is a leap of faith for the players but the amount of funds raised during each milestone, the transparency, and the demos available made the leap quite easy for me. It's not going to be Firefall but it really looks and plays like the sci-fi shooter FF could have been.

Interesting question.....until I play em8er I'm not sure how it would fit into the Battleframe universe. I'll let everyone know when the new book and audio book for Battleframe is released.....maybe I could post a few sample chapters.
Thanks for your encouragement. :)
