Looking forward to playing this adventure, as I'm a fan of the original trilogy... (not the new ones, they suck)..

Hey I was just wondering what do you use to unpack a .tar.tar file? ???

Seeing that the thread has already been bumped, here you are some news:
beta testing of the italian version of the (part of the) game we released started a few days ago and is going well :)

If someone here understands italian and wants to join, just say "hi" in this thread
http://sote.freeforums.org/hunting-the-hunter-prologo-ita-call-for-testers-t16.html and register on the bug tracking platform.

Bye ;)

Hi, this post is mainly for italian users potentially watching the thread.

On december 7 (next sunday) we'll have a little talk about Star Wars: SOTE and fangame development at the Gamecon, in Naples.

Detailed info (in italian) are available on our website.

Anyone around is welcome to come and sai "hi!" :)

We'll talk about SOTE development and show some "behind the scenes" stuff.
I think that we'll publish some material on our website after the convention, so give it a look next week, if interested :)

bye bye!

Great! Actually this game is the most looking forwarded one for me.

bump!

Another (this time, consistent) italian-only beta is out! Details and new screenshots in the first post :)

bye ;)

Can't wait for it's release, the demos didn't work for me though, just extracted an OUT file.

Sure that it works, just extract with winrar or 7zip.
If you get a .tar file after the first extraction, extract the .tar too.

I think that we'll repackage the demo as a self extractor someday, it's incredible how many people hated the tar.bz2 we choosed to have linux permissions stored and get the game ready for playing after extraction on linux too :(

Wooohoo, this looks really professional!
No more military army stuff. I'm alive and back.

*Bump!*
Is SOTE slowly coming back after a long break? Maybe it is!
I've just edited the original post with the following update:

[03/08/2012 - Hunting the Hunter prologue gameplay video on YT]
It's been a long time, isn't it?
Well, just to show that we're still alive and the project is paused but not dead (we've put too much time and energies to just abandon it - we *have* to complete and release it someday), we uploaded on YT a gameplay video: it's the beginning of "Hunting the Hunter".
It's a small part of what we released to Italian beta testers around three years ago.
We hope that you enjoy it!

So, click here to watch the video on YT!

Those backgrounds are absolutely gorgeous.  Were the cutscenes made in-engine?

I don't speak a word of Italian, but there's something about Boba Fett saying "si e tempo di prendere misure drastiche" before flying around with a flamethrower that requires no translation.

I thought this game wasn't using AGS anymore, but Multimedia Fusion.

Say it isn't so!!!

Is this an AGS game in production or not?

Maybe it once was an AGS project but it isn't anymore.
It's indeed a Multimedia Fusion 2 project, like DiPerla said...

This makes me sad... well if it ever finds its way back to AGS let me know and we can unlock this.
Received a PM... and am happy again!!

Sorry for the "misunderstanding": i clarify the development situation:

- I had to stop coding for the project a 3 years ago. So BobaFonts, the project founder, looked for a tool to work indipendently on the project without the need of a programmer. He picked up MMF and updated the site, but he started working on another area of the "Shadows of the Empire" story.
- The "Hunting the Hunter" part of the project, that is the one I did (lot of) coding for, is 100% AGS and will be finished in AGS with my collaboration. The video I posted comes from this part. There's about an hour of playable game ready and tested since years. I'm going to restart working on this and hopefully we'll be able to release the full "Hunting the Hunter", made in AGS, in reasonable time, even if I prefer not saying dates.

I have no idea of what will happen to the project after the AGS "Hunting the Hunter" release, but it's pointless to think about that for now :)

Joseph: hey, I remember about you :)
When the game will be ready, we will of course ask here on the forums for help with beta testing and translation review, as we did long time ago for the Tech Demo. Happy to count you in!

KodiakBehr: no, the cutscenes are ogg theora videos edited outside AGS by BobaFonts.

Whatever is being used to make this adventure game, this shows promise, given the screenshots I've seen.  Hope this game is completed soon.

Oh, and... I'm saying this to be silly, of course, but think someday we might have a Jar Jar Binks Adventure Game in the future?
