Wormhole Brief: Jumpgate Lawsuit

Oh dear, it seems that the big old delay on the release of Jumpgate Evolution isn't simply down to putting on a few more layers of polish. IncGamers spotted that Codemasters are suing developers NetDevil, and parent company Gazillion, for breach of contract. The UK publisher is seeking the repayment of development costs and its legal expenses. A PDF of the complaint filed can be…

Jumpgate Evolution Still Evolving

Just as memories of much-delayed space MMO Jumpgate Evolution were deleted by our brains to make room for voluminous Portal 2 hype, a trailer turns up. As is my habit, I've posted the thing below. It's a look at the warlike Octavius faction. And... it's a SHOUTY MAN TRAILER! Hooray! It's been a while since we had one of those. For some reason it doesn't…

The Year Ahead, Part Three

Once we get past early summer things get a little hazy. We enter a nether-realm of shifting dates and unclear prophecies. By then we'll also have a whole bunch of games I haven't previously mentioned show up in the intervening months, stuff that we didn't have release dates for to place them in our line-up. This final post in our preview attempts to survey them…

June For Jumpgate

The latest Jumpgate Evolution trailer seems to confirm that the game is out in June. The beta sign up pages are live on the main site, although there's no open beta yet in progress. The trailer is interesting, showing loads of in-game footage, including some of those capital ship takedown battles that NetDevil have been talking up over the past few months. For more on…

Jumpgate Evolution, shooty footage

Reader Handsdown spotted that there's another remnant of PAX footage that we hadn't yet posted - the cam-footage of Jumpgate Evolution in action. I do believe this is the first time we've seen the game played live, and it's clear that it'll be important to see how this works as an action game, as much as an MMO. NetDevil were very much inclined to talk…

Jumpgate: “Darkness this, darkness that”

There sure is a lot of darkness in the Jumpgate universe, at least if this new trailer is to be believed. Well, it is space, I suppose. Anyway, this has some in-engine (if not in-game) splendidness, and it all looks rather pretty indeed - darkness permitting. And it's about time someone came up with an alternative to that space MMO, so I'm rather anxious to…

Jumpgate Beta Signups

There's an outside chance that Jumpgate Evolution is going to be really good. Netdevil don't have the best track record but, well, there's just something about what we've seen so far that intrigues me. Not that free-flight space MMOs haven't crashed and burned before, or that it's ever going to supplant the many years I've spent in Eve Online but... let's just say I don't…

NetDevil on Auto Assault and JumpGate Evolution

NetDevil have had an interesting journey. They're a privately owned, Colorado-based company that started out by making a niche space-combat MMO, Jumpgate, in 2001. They then went on to create the disastrous post-apocalyptic vehicle combat MMO Auto Assault in 2006 - a game so unpopular that it was switched off just over a year after release by owners NCSoft. Now NetDevil are back on track…
