The latest Circle's FM News, based on the latest update from the upcoming
Two authors make an appearance in the list: Eternauta & nicked. Eternauta is working on a 3-mission campaign for Thief 2, called "When still". He posted several WIP screenshots and for a first ever project things are looking very good. A release date is still to be announced.
Nicked's next project has the working title "From Beneath the Sands 2". Instead of what it sounds, it won't be a sequel to his 2006 mission, but a complete redesign and remake. It's currently halfway finished, and should be released sometime this year.
First announced in 2004, Vlad Midnight released his Thief Gold FM "Invitation at Castle Morgoth". It can be downloaded from the archives of Southquarter and darklurker.
Queue revealed the name of his debut mission in progress: Plunkett's Point. The name comes from a historical thief whose adventures were used for a movie. It's currently at 50% complete, with no known date of release. Some preview screens were posted on the forums.
Balboa's Tales from the Cleft is making rapid progress. The first part, Vandal, has reached beta stage which means testing can begin soon. A preview video has been posted that shows good looking scenery, supported by a classical music theme by Beethoven. A release is set for January.
Some sad news comes from Sensut, who recently announced he no longer has enough time to continue working on the Bathory campaign. Luckily, he found a friend (Laszlo) to continue the work, while Sensut remains in charge as supervisor. Bathory IV is the part currently in the works. By revealing some WIP screens of the work done by Laszlo, it seems clear that the project is in good hands. Don't miss the youtube video that shows an insight into the castle area. Other news is that the campaign will get a total number of seven missions, so there's plenty to look forward to.
To end this update, there's news from The Hammerite Imperium. The first mission, Seven Shades of Mercury, is finally nearing release thanks to the contributions of several forum members. Many more missions were originally planned for this campaign, but those will mos likely never be finished.
