I'm just as ready as you guys! Once AiGD 18 is out, then the team will be much more consistent posting new videos. As for AiGD 18, after such a long hiatus, we needed to make sure we filled that gap of time. Fortunately, at the insane pace the team has been working at lately, I see great things for the future of ES. AiGD is no longer scripted, is no longer about the flair, and is no longer unfocused. AiGD is just us, the ES team, having fun, unscripted, and pushing the limits. We've been having so much fun these past few weeks developing, hanging out, and getting into the bread and butter of the actual ES game. Excited, ready, and pumped to see what everyone thinks!

^ this. Although we still have quite a bit of stylistic flair this time around. At least from a directing standpoint. I still have a few tricks up my sleeve. ;)

But yeah, the actual meat of the video reminds me much more of Chapters 12-15 than any of our newer works. The team dynamics have all changed, the development setup, our processes, our focus--everything is different. It's more like a new series with the same name. We're ready to break the mold.

Sounds like it'll definitely be the best chapter so far. So excited.
I don't suppose you'd be able to give a general release date, like "this month", or "the next 2-3 months", or maybe "tomorrow"? Not that I want you guys to rush! ;)

Yeah, I'm definitely excited for everything. I'd love to see the toolkit pimped out as much as you can, the ease of putting a level together and what not, not to mention all the technical hurdles that you guys worked hard on overcoming.

Dear god, they actually ported ES to a piece of celery!

Most definitely.

When it's ready. We're aiming for somewhere between now and the future.

Goddamnit, stop being so specific! The fans are going to demand too much of us with such rigid time frames...
