Little-Worlds goes mainstream!

A year and 2 months ago I had a telephone conversation with someone connected to the former Adeline Team. He mentioned that they had a large scale next gen project in the works, but where still looking/negotiating with publishers for financing/publishing.

Well ladies and gentlemen, its now official. They're developing a next gen game for the 360/PS3 platforms, using the Unreal 3 Engine. To quote their official site...


We are official Microsoft’s Xbox 360 developer.

Besides developing an original concept using Epic’s Unreal 3 technology, several XBLA projects are also on the way.

Contact us for any retail or digital work-for-hire projects.




We are official Sony’s Playstation 3 developer.

F@ck yeah!!!

I hope it will be a great game


Let's wish for more details in the coming months.




See people? The LBA team is slowly coming back to life, even if they are a little splitted away from each other.

Nice one Axx!

(And this one is not an april fool's joke) :P

A company set up by some of the old Adeline members (most of them except Fred I think).

http://www.little-worlds.com/

I suppose this is good news, no point getting too excited until there is something to be excited about though.

I never really bothered following all the "works" of the Adeline team... Delphine/F-4 Toys/Little Worlds/Whatever Studios... All sound the same to me. Not like any of them did anything interesting.

LBA3 relies in its entirety on the success of the IP's Fred and Vachey are separately working on. It will also be interisting to see what they come up with, as both Ludoid (Fraynal) and Little Worlds Studio (Vachey & Chomard) are working on projects they promise to be unique and of particular interest to the LBA fans.

My "Source" did infact comment that the game Little Worlds is working on will be particularly enjoyed by LBA fans.

Soul Bubbles is a really nice game. Even if there isnt that much of an LBA connection there.

Guys!

- Fred probably wants to make LBA3
- If Little Worlds is primarily made up of the old Adeline team, they probably want to make LBA3

If this game is succesful, what's stopping them from buying / renting the rights to LBA (who the hell owns them?) and making a third game? (aside from finding a publisher)

Obviously Fred is busy at Ubisoft, but in the coming years who knows what will happen! I for one am excited.

---

Plus, whatever game they're making might be good Although, assuming this is in its early stages, aren't they a bit late? Shouldn't we be expecting a new generation of consoles soon?

Fred said that the rights for LBA3 are no longer a problem.

This generation hasn't even reached its peak. Technologies for the PC are rapidly improving (Just Cause for the PC utilizes the GPU for shaders/processes otherwise unavailable for the 360/ps3), but most people aren't particularly concerned.

HD Tellies still have a way to go before becoming the standard in all homes, and we also have PS3 Move/360 Natal on the way that will breath new life into next gen consoles.

He did, others have told me it has in fact remained a problem. The man who owns the rights is Paul De Senneville, though they're hoping he loses interest so they get it at a good price.

Reminds me, I once saw someone on a GoogleTalk argueing in favour of copywrite/patent law only determining royalties, not preventing people from making things.
So, basically, if you own copyright and arnt doing squat with it, you cant stop others from using it. (but youd still claim royalties if other people do)

Doesn't sound like a good idea to me. That would mean that any fool can make a crap game and ruin your franchise / overshadow your own games.

Agree. People might not realise it's from a separate creator, or they can take a lot of success when you've put in all the groundwork.

Then you could sue for slander. People would still have to be very clear its not from the original creator. Only it means the original creator couldn't complete block development of something using their IP.
So, say, FanFilms/Games would be legal then. But if you sale any of them, you have to give %% money back to the source.

I dont think they could "take the success" though. The IPs creator could set the royalties as, like, 90% or something. So they still get the vaste majority of the profit.

(the problem with the idea I think is putting sensible limits on the royalty rate. Fanfilms and such dont mater much, but drug-licenses for 3rd world country's? Being able to make medicines owned by a big pharmaceutical company's could profoundly effect things...but the royalty rates would need to be reasonable based on countrys average income or something)

Loses his interest in what ?

Also, I don not own any consols (except from game boy/NDS), so, I hope that they'll do a computer game ^^

Yeah, that seems to be true; what they've done in all these years? only 3rd party work?

Is this the rich guy who financed the LBA's to be able to exist?

In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.
