In a forum post from the game’s executive producer, fans of Jumpgate Evolution have discovered that the game we saw previously has been “completely overhauled”. In a lengthy, Lance Robertson explained that the developers, NetDevil, weren’t happy with the game after the initial round of testing, and made the decision to rebuild Jumpgate, shifting focus to the gameplay experience they were aiming for all along: space warfare on a massive scale. “I’m going to be honest with you and tell you something that may be difficult to hear: what you saw and heard of Jumpgate Evolution before now may have little bearing on the actual game we’re going to deliver. When we went into that dark period to redesign much of the game, much was thrown away and new needs came to light, but we ultimately ended up with a much clearer vision of what we want Jumpgate Evolution to be, as well as the path to get there.” NetDevil has since invested more into the game and brought on new staff to cope with all the new work, making JGE into the game it is today. Anyone keen to see the progress will be able to experience it at many of the gaming conventions this year.
