Exclamation Read This

Something just came in. I need people here to listen carefully, im serious that we now have a shot at LBA3, A REAL SHOT AT IT.

Okay we need to make our case to every possible publisher, and in the most professional manner. Those of you who have not signed the twinadv petition, sign it now, im going to use it.

- Those of you who consider themselves to have good knowledge of the gaming industry publishers, please step up.

- I need volunteers in several countries to represent the LBA community, preferably people who are 18 and over.

- El, if you could please set up a forum, and restrict the rights to view it to those who are ALREADY members of the MBN, remembering to ofcourse restrict the rights of anyone of the Adeline-F4-toys-Ludoid-Little Worlds studios. The reason for this is id rather it not be made public to them what we plan or are doing.

We have roughly 2 weeks to a month to make sure every person responsible for deciding which game Fred should work on, from the publishers, to hear out case, and believe it. So we dont have much time on our hands.

Share your ideas with us, we sure as hell will be needing them.

Ill comment more in the new forum, depending on wether el sets it up.

If the publishers are convinced LBA3 stands the best chance, the path for its creation is officially cleared, and we all get to witness its development, and remember that we were the reason it was published...

The sooner we make our case, the better, because we can never know when the publishers get back to fred, and he's sure as hell contacting them right now. Get moving!!!

-Ahmad

What?! It's time?! Finally, the judgement is about to take place in at least 2 weeks!
Don't worry, I've made a Twinadv petition some time ago. Fellas, if you are loyal to both LBA, MBN and Adeline/F4-toys, don't hesitate to follow your obligations for their future. LBA 3! It's now or never!

I eagerly await the open of a forum, ill outline everything so that this works out in a very organized fashion.

I need people to step up and let me know if they know the gaming industry publishers. I need others to actually represent us and lba, and to present their case to the publishers as i mentioned earlier.

Please make yourselves known!

Like Ilumina said, its now or never. Opportunities like this dont come everyday.

I'd love to help in any way. The LBA games actually played a pretty part in my life (as bizzare as that sounds!) and I'd do as much as I can to see LBA3 come into existence.

Quick note people-

Ive been checking out all sorts of things since 4 am (its 11am now) and found a flurry of activity over the internet, particularly european sites, regarding the last article I wrote on twinadv.net. Further more, most every site mentions twinadv name, and its nice to see that news on twinadv spreads so fast an easily.

We could use that to our advantage, ill discuss more in the private forums.

here are a few links
GamersHell
TGM online

GameStar.de
another site
Inpact Virtual
These are just a few. Search for "Ludoid" in google, you get around three pages.

A little update, Twinadv website's front page now has a mission statement, i was wondering if the MBN could have something similar, as it attracts the most hits.

This feels religious. We'll be making history.

Seriously, I will help as much as I can. What exactly can we do? What was it that just came in?

Because we are trying to get publishers to invest in LBA, therefor we need to see them *before* fred and co does.

Or, preferably, get them to call him.

Sorry, but your avatar matches the situation very well:

Axx is asking Fred about LBA3, Fred doesn't want to make a sequal, and than Axx starts hitting him on the head

The petition really doesn't matter nearly as much as the publicity LBA3 gets.

This is great news, but what others ways are there to help? What exactly are we signing this petition for, like what are we going to get out of it? I want to help out here as much as i can and i think i can help out in more than just signing a petition, what other things are being done behind the scenes, because i feel we'll be needing all the help we can get to get LBA 3 onto the shelves. If there is any other way possible then Axx then i would gladly take that position if it helped LBA 3's chances of becoming a reality.

Can't they just go and use some 'Online distribution' program like Steam or something?

PM Darkflame for access to the LBA3 Campaign Headquarters. There is plenty more to do.

Online destribution can help a lot, but you still need funding to pay to create the game.

Beats having the publishers pushing the game away for eternity, but I'll agree with the funding part for Fred.
