But anyway why should we bealive that e-mail.
not saying that renesans a fake.. i bealive him
just saying.. asuming it's the first time you talk to him ("I am a fan of your games and I'd like to ask.." sounds like an introduction) why would he tell you his plans.. in that case he would just post it at ludoid.

anyway don't know

Yes, it's the first time I wrote to Fred, but I found his e-mail address, tried it out and it worked. And IIRC multiple MBN members contacted him in the past, and he never lied just because the sender was unknown to him.

I agree that it isn't LBA 3, in fact hope it isn't, because in my personal opinion, I think he kind of needs to come out of the shadows and make a platform for LBA 3, which this game would do.

It's even possible he's struck a deal with UbiSoft to help them with their game, and then gain their support for an LBA 3.

And to answer somebody's question before about Fred's motive towards LBA 3, he said somewhere a while back, that he will make LBA 3 before he dies, which to me basically says, "It might take a while, but it will be done."

This game could also be a trial, I think he has a lot of pride for the LBA series and would probably want this to be a big hit.

I find Fred's admission that this isn't LBA 3 to be pretty fucking lame, especially considering the imagery they're using with the slate.

Not that I *expect* LBA 3, but the point is that it's definitely teased using that image.

Someone should change the first post. It now shows the empty slate, because THI.png has been replaced. The correct image (ardoise.png) should be used.

Well I think is a nice gesture to add this wiped slate so fast after Ren pointing it out to him. One could read is as plans have changed. Also taking in mind the original image was created in march 2007.

But we always hold this project to heart (take to heart is probably a better translation) and your enthusiasm is precious to us.

LBA1 = 1994
LBA2 = 1997
It's now 2009,

1997-1994= 3 years between the two games.
2009-1997 = 12 years ago the last LBA game was released.

3/12 = 25% chance that a new LBA related game will be released in the near future

By "this project", does he mean LBA 3?


And by the way, does anyone have a proof that Fred ever said he will make LBA 3 before he dies? This starts to sound like an urban legend to me

I'm younger than him, he'll probably die before me, so I'll be able to play LBA3 before I die

I was wondering about the same. I think we should ask Fred (preferrably in French) whether LBA3 is his next project or not, and when will it enter development.

I confirm the proper translation of this message is:

Quote:
Message to the LBA community: "Sorry, this is not LBA3!"

But we still take this project (LBA3) to heart and your enthusiasm means a lot to us. Thanks. Fred.
I think he read or heard of this thread, he wouldn't have given us this precision and changed the slate's picture name if he didn't know about this discussion. This is quite encouraging.
