Trium Planeta NEWS 5th JUNE 2004

Hi,
I got news from Fredrick Raynal ! Unfortunately, the short-term future isn't bright. He said that the development of TP is getting on quite well but that the game is now very far from being “LBA-like” (in his own words). He said this was due to its console-oriented development.

He also said he recently visited a few LBA related forums and websites and got emotionally touched. Finally he thanked all of us (I contacted him on behalf of the forum).

The spiritual follow-up to LBA may not be TP but maybe that’s for the better… maybe one day the one and only LBA3 will come !

Here it is ! It's in French unfortunately. French speaking people will feel that he was emotional when writing...


Bonjour Daniel,

Merci beaucoup pour votre support pendant ces nombreuses années.
TP avance bien mais s'est beaucoup éloigné d'un LBA like, console oblige.

J'ai récemment revisité plusieurs sites et forums sur LBA qui m'ont touchés. Depuis je n'arrête pas d'y penser...

Merci à tous,
A bientôt,
Frederick.

Well, the hint was it being a platform game

Nah, im not dissapointed at all because i didnt expect it too be LBA like.
At least, not in gameplay.
I do feel the "universe" of the game and purhapes the style will have a few things in common.

But the most important thing is its made by a team we know produces original, quality titles.
Fred played a major role in computer games we play today, so i sure hope he is getting the support he deserves.

Finaly i pray it comes out on all formats its possible to come out on.
Exclusivity deals too one console dosnt really work well unless its an established brand. (even the tempory PS2 exclusivity of Beyond Good & Evil hurt its sales)

So, lets hope for PS2, Gamecube, Xbox versions....heck, maybe even the Nintendo Dual Screen version at some point
The wider the choice of formats the bigger the fanbase and the more sales their will be

Hello Daniel,
Thank you very much for your support during these many years. TP's production is advancing well, but moved away much from being like LBA, being a console production. I recently revisited several sites and forums on LBA which touched me. Since I do not stop thinking of it...
Thank you all,
A soon,
Frederick.

Ive translated it, and it was edited to clear the meaning. However if the French here have a better translation, please share it with me.
Im happy to see people take an interest in finding out stuff on their own.
Koypiot, what e-mail did you use to cantact him (please dont give out the address though, never without freds permision) fr-toys e-mail, of the private one?

Regards Axx

This is quite good news indeed. Which such intermittent news, any word of development is superb. Nice job, Koypiout. Perhaps when he talks about moving away from an LBA-like game he's talking about the mechanics (modes and so on).

I live in Belgium (right next to France) and I speak French (as opposed to Dutch or German which are the other two languages spoken here). You might think I'm new to this forum but in fact I have been consulting it for years ! It just amazes me to see so many people (that's me included) keeping interest in such an old game ! I have been an LBA fan since 1994 (I even anticipated the release of the first opus) and I have waited for LBA3 for sooo long... I wonder if it will ever come out. Frederick Raynal said he would unveil the ending of the trilogy the day he was sure the third part would never be made, let's hope this day doesn't come !

I think this is great news!! Maybe if Fred gets time he could visit the MBN and give us an update, it makes me think of spirits possesing someone to communicate to the people, as koy said, lets hope this day doesn't come!!!! (the day the third part will never be made)

Probably the release of media is upto the publisher, so thats why they are holding back for the moment.

yes, a very anoying habit. and when he says moving away from lba, i think he means in the styl and feel of the game (and im not suprised) as its on console and this makes it very diferent

I'm not expecting much about TP either, but if lba3 will be ever created depends in big part of the success of TP, so I hope it to be a good selling game so we can finally have lba3
