So here are a few comments on the ACEO topics in this thread:
Apoapsis Studios is not a real company - yet. We do not yet have the financial infrastructure to form a company since it in Sweden requires that you have a capital 50k Swedish crowns. Apoapsis Studios is however a conceptual organization, an indie studio, made up by me and Fredrik, working every day on this title when time allows. Roughly, between us, we’re putting in about six to eight hours each day. Me and Fredrik have been running another company before, so this is the smallest “problem”.
Why won’t we take on any capital? Because it changes the relationship between us, the product and the community. This is not a smash-n-grab quick money scheme, this is an art project with the ambition to build a really good airport tycoon and management game. We’re doing fine without any financial input as of yet, for example, this forum is running on an old server in my dorm room closet. Almost feels as if you’re in my home, lol. Yes, the electricity bill is a bit larger but nothing we can’t manage. Essentially, we have everything we need except time and time is the only thing we can’t acquire more of at this stage. When the game is ready for its first iteration you’ll be invited to partake.
I’d also want to remind you that this is an ACEO forum and while we of course will allow a thread to discuss the fact that there are other titles out there (the more the merrier, right?). However, detailed discussion on any other game cannot be allowed here at this point. Not because we don’t want to, transparency is the shit according to us, but because we need to maintain the integrity of the the forum and make sure that topics stay on the topic of the forum. At least until we introduce a category in the style of “Other Airport Games” which of course could happen further down the road.
Lastly and most importantly, thanks for the motivating comments! The video will drop really, really, really, really soon. Like, really soon (not shitting you).
