2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,900 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

New Terran ship concepts are up!

We hope you enjoy these quick info cards showcasing a few pieces of our concept art. They provide quick synopses and equipment loadouts for a handful of our ships.
Please note again, these are concept art pieces and not our final 3D models.

New Concept Painting!

Painting by Markus Brackelmann

Painting by Markus Brackelmann (Click to Embiggen!)

This is a concept painting of Terran dropships moving across the tundra of a frozen planet. Dropships serve as the primary means of transport for troops and cargo to and from planetary colonies and larger craft in orbit.

It’s worth repeating that this image speaks to the player’s ability to colonize worlds, one of many awesome features boasted by GiF. We’re more than sprawling space battles with thousands of units — though we’re that, too! GiF is being designed as the consummate RTS and tactical hybrid, allowing for rich strategic gaming and empire building along with gorgeous real-time control over vast fleets of ships.

At Mjolnir, we get the great benefit of having seen and played the best of our predecessors, and can combine the lasting traditions of those landmark titles with the very creative and innovative ideas we’re building in-house. Admittedly, it’s a lot to promise. Keep an eye on us (and tell your friends) to watch as we deliver on it.

Send us an email anytime at mjolnircommunity@gmail.com or respond below, we’d love to chat!

There's only a few left... act now!

OH! And speaking of greatness, we’re currently in the very last stretch of our fundraiser. We’re selling off a VERY limited run of collector’s edition shirts in order to put together enough cash to do something *incredibly* awesome in the next few weeks. I don’t even want to spoil it, so let’s just get to the purchasing of the shirts.

They look good, they feel good, and they might very well help you win friends and influence people.
