That's no excuse, Laconius! My hardrive crashed, exploded, caught on fire, and burned to smouldering ashes, THREE TIMES, and I'm still working on my campaign!

Pfft, Thal, you can do better than that. Lac actually has an excuse. You just have some minor setbacks.

I swore I posted this but evidently I didn't. I like what you did with the sprites in the very first screenshot on this page (sprite count must be horrendously high though, and this is a big map so hopefully you don't run into any CCMU/CCMS problems). I also really dig the black colour on the Zerg. I wonder what you'll call this new brood.

You also make a lot of enigmatic references, like in Vile Egression. Hopefully, though, you'll have enough time within the constraints of the contest to see them out the way you truly want them to (I remember you or someone you spoke with mentioning that the storyline ending for Vile Egression was rushed).

Any idea on when your next update's due? You've briefly shown us a lot of characters, and this only makes my interest in your project grow. I wonder how you'll deal with the expanded cast (this seems to be a much bigger project than Vile Egression).

/e Your vocal impressions of the Overmind are also impressive. It's pretty close.

This voice sounds more like the CABAL from C&C Tiberian Sun/Firestorm to me. :)
Nevertheless, I like it.

On a totally unrelated note, that avatar of yours is rape on the eyes, Laconius. Goddamn.
