So, the WCS team has released a new (very good) teaser of Wing Commander Saga: The Darkest Dawn, without a doubt one of the biggest fan projects ever made:

Also a collection of stats:

In its current state, Saga has the following


Over nine hours of voice dialogue.
Approximately 70 cut scenes for a total of about 90 minutes of pre-rendered footage (not counting in-flight communications and command briefings).
Over 60 voice actors, some of whom are actual professionals.
221 voice acting roles.
55 missions.
Achievements (mission performance is evaluated and rewarded)
90 models created for Saga.
Download size of 3-4GB with an installation size of 8-9 GB

Very impressive stats, doesn't say much about the quality though - but the voice acting work sounds pretty decent:

There is much more info and material on their site, highly recommend to check it out: http://www.wcsaga.com/ The Prolugue to the full campaign is also available on the site as a downlaod for Windows and Macs.

What do you think about this project? Might it have a big impact once it's released? Since there is no other classic space combat simulation with story driven campaign on the horizon my expectations for this project are rather high.

I played the prologue release a few years ago and while technically it was good it just lacked that special "something" that made Wing Commander the game that it was. I hope the full game nails that atmosphere.

No Mark Hamill or space tiger puppets? WC is dead to me.
