92w ago - Giant Sparrow Game Designer Ben Esposito has posted up a video today spotlighting The Unfinished Swan from the Comic-Con 2012 panel below.

To quote: I'm Ben, a Game Designer at Giant Sparrow.

Last Saturday, a bunch of us took a trip down to San Diego for Comic-Con, where we held a panel that focused on the art of The Unfinished Swan. We want to thank everyone who attended - you're all beautiful people.

If you couldn't make it to the panel, we've put together this highlight reel so you can watch all the good parts!

The panel was hosted by Morgan Webb, who made sure things went super smooth as we discussed the ups and downs of developing such a unique game.

On stage we had Ian Dallas, Hokyo Lim, Max Geiger, and me. We showed off some never-before-seen concept art, and talked about how we developed the art style for The Unfinished Swan.





We've been really quiet throughout development in hopes of preserving the game's surprises, so it was refreshing to have the chance to speak with fans about our inspirations.

Thanks for being patient with us! We've got more to reveal soon,...

To quote: Greetings! Yesterday was my first time at San Diego Comic-Con and I was amazed at the people I saw! What costumes! It's great to see so many people embracing their passion.

50°
94w ago - Dust 514 Community Manager Phil Wang has announced that the Mercenary Pack arrives on PSN today and grants Beta Access this Thursday with details below, as follows:

Later this year, there will be an unprecedented level of combat in gaming raging across the entire EVE Universe, from the mighty capsuleers far above in Eve Online, to the relentless onslaught you and your squad will bring to bear against your enemies on countless planets in DUST 514.

The first, harrowing drumbeats of war started not long ago and have been increasing ever since during our beta tests. Until today, this has been of very limited scope while we've introduced some of the EVE Universe's most faithful players to planetary warfare and trickled in some of the earliest of adopters who have picked up their rifles and laid low the opposition.

But that all changes this weekend when we'll be opening the doors to thousands of new combatants through our beta events. There's still time to sign up over at our official Beta Web site to participate in this important, and early, testing period for the game.

Signing up for the beta and playing DUST 514 is completely free! But for those who want to try an assortment of the pay-for items, get guaranteed access to beta weekends,...
