Some news from the devs - What's happening with Frets

Postby nwru » Thu Oct 18, 2007 11:36 pm

I stumbled on a blog post of one of the devs (skyostil). Here's what he had to say:
What's happening with Frets On Fire?

As you might have noticed, it's been awhile since we've put out a new version of Frets On Fire and generally things have been a little dormant around the project. I hope to somewhat clarify the situation with this post.

Well, first off, rumors about the death of the project have been greatly exaggerated. We have a new version in the works and at this point it is nearly finished. This time around the focus has been on performance optimization and general bug fixes, so no major new features are being introduced. Hopefully we'll have the new packages up later this week.

That said, in the long run our intention is to gradually move Frets into a maintenance mode and concentrate more on our next game project. It's been a blast working on Frets On Fire, but at the same time all these other awesome game ideas have been fighting for attention in our respective heads. This does not mean that we are abandoning Frets completely; the only implication is that major new features will probably not be implemented by us in the near future.

I'll try to write something more about the new game as it materializes. In the mean time, you might want to check out this General Games Podcast, where I'm interviewed by Justin Amirkhani about all things Frets On Fire.

I'm glad they're taking on performance improvement as a priority. Way to go, guys. :)
Its just like life. Quite interesting in parts, but no substitute for the real thing.

It's disheartening to hear they're halting work on this project for other endeavors. This project seemed like their crown jewel, something they poured their heart and soul into.नरेगा ग्राम पंचायत list

It was far from their crown jewel. Yeah it was popular with us guys, but for them it was a little side project. It was actually written for an code assembly contest the year it was released, it was never meant to be a fully fledged game. more like a guitar hero PC clone demo (seeing as it was a pc clone of GH after all) But yeah they had no intention of ever making it as big as it was, it was just for some little contest in finland where they came from.
And besides, after that we got a proper GH pc game which was way better.
Im glad it had its time, but im also glad its now moved on and we have bigger and better games of this nature to play

Certainly!

---

Frets On Fire's been quiet lately, sparking rumors of its demise. But fear not! A new version is almost ready, focusing on performance and bug fixes rather than flashy features. Expect it to drop soon.

Looking ahead, we're shifting gears towards a new game project while still maintaining Frets On Fire. While major updates may slow down, we're not abandoning it entirely.

Excited about our next venture? Stay tuned for updates, and in the meantime, check out the General Games Podcast where I chat with Justin Amirkhani about all things Frets On Fire.
