I check in at SSG periodically to see if anything is going on, this is a copy paste job from the last post in the
"is SSG still alive thread"     http://www.ssg.com.au/forums/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=6402&start=15

We are still around however a bit older but not a lot wiser. There will be an announcement on our future plans soon but as per our past practices it is better to wait till we have something set in concrete rather than just talk about it.

I'd like to see a revamped version - and upgraded gameplay wise of Europe Ablaze. Great operational air war game from SSG that hit the C64, but never made the PC >:(.

I had some of those for the Apple 2e.  pc's just werent that prevalent back then.
Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Seems we will know more at the end of the month (according to Roger) and that we will be able to make suggestions...

Maybe they've decided to get in on this fantasy strategy game explosion, and will revisit Warlords. :)

Warlords is the first game I ever downloaded a demo for (using Compuserve, that tells you how long ago it was).  Only let you play 40 turns, I think.  Gave demo to my brother and we both ended up buying it.  Wow was that a long time ago.  Hopefully SSG comes up with something good for their next game.

A very cryptic message. What is it I wonder? I pity the poor betas being asked the questions when chances are they haven't a clue what this game is about.. :o Don't get me wrong I like SSG, but what is this game about?

I'm guessing the lack of info thus far is indicative of an NDA requirement for anyone beta-testing the game.

I've inquired after it myself for the beta team.

For the new game.

That's great news! I am happy to see that SSG is still alive and didn't die with Ian Trout.
Regardless of how good a PC game may be it will always have its detractors and no matter how bad a PC game may be it will always have its fans.
