More about Jefferson by Odin - 1:23 -
JE Saywer was kind enough to answer some of mine and others questions about the Jefferson project. Here's what he said about how far they had gotten on the project:
We are creating game assets right now. It's been in pre-production for over a year with a skeleton crew working on it. Only for the past sixth months have we had a larger development staff. Some of those resources also went towards finishing up IWD2. It initially started with just Chris Parker, Brian Hendley, Vance Kovacs, John Watson, and me.

The team currently has about ten programmers, ten artists, and five designers (me, Kihan Pak, John Deiley, Scott Everts, and Damien Foletto). We are at the stage where we are making core game assets and preparing a demo (demo for launch, not demo for general consumption).

And no, it's not Fallout 3.
Well, I knew that! But I'm still curious about what it is..
And a question about what game assets are:
Game assets are the pieces of data that the game actually uses. Not just vague design ideas sitting in a document somewhere. Creature files, weapon files, maps, scripts, etc.
This is like a school isn't it?!
Last, but not least, hints to what Jefferson is:
Unfortunately, what I can tell you is limited.

* The game is not Fallout 3.
* The game will be role-playing oriented.
* My design focus has been somewhere between high concept and practical fun. I've never been a big fan of ethereal notions of game design. That said, I've taken a very long look at the way we've done things in the past, and I believe that we are trying to do some very ambitious things that are a step above and beyond what we have done in the past.

I hate the word "revolutionary". Things aren't revolutionary until a community sees how those things impact the rest of the community. We're doing evolutionary things in Jefferson, but I believe they are significant steps forward.
..ooh...I wonder what this is..

Oh god how I hope this will be a scifi/cyberpunk kind of dealie. Fantasy is kind of getting old by now.

Be it whatever, I expect to see references to stairs and houses. *wink wink*
