4 YEARS already?!!

Haha hi everyone,

Yes, it has already been 4 years since Foresight was released.

But first things first, let us give you a BIG THANK YOU for all your support!

What has happened to Foresight so far?

2018 is a rather quiet year for Foresight until several serious bugs were reported. While the code is definitely getting older, we took it upon ourselves to ensure that our players deserve what they've paid for; a fully functional game.

Thus, patch V1.3 was conceived and developed to cross Foresight's codes over to a newer API and engine, thus receiving additional stability that came with the upgrades.

4 years ago, we made up our minds that even if the game crashed and burned; even if there's only 1 person playing the game, we'll be obliged to support the player. That's our commitment to our players and we've always been consistent about it. You can expect the same level of commitment if not higher when we release our new games in the future!

What's next for Foresight?

Unless anyone says otherwise, we think that the RTS genre, while definitely alive, the space RTS subgenre has more or less being absorbed as being a part of GS.

Therefore, even if there's going to be a Foresight 2, it'll most likely be in the Grand Strategy genre while retaining its RTS components, some parts that existed in Foresight will be shifted.

We've also constantly heard that you guys hate to wait and excessive build times make the game slower if not already inherently slow.

Thus, the closest POSSIBILITY that might occur to Foresight is a probably a HD remake; subjected to you guys voting for it more than less.

What's next for Strides then?

We've been pretty quiet for the past 4 years partially because we're growing. We're listening and learning from all the feedback we've gotten. One thing I can say about us is that, we've definitely learnt a lot from you guys!

We're also strategizing our next move and how we intend to stay relevant and viable in this ever-competitive business. But rest assured, we're far more committed to stay connected with you, our customers, than before! After all, it's you folks who play and decide if our games are worthy or not.

Ok fine! What's next?!!!

We've been working on our next game, which will be announced in the near future. The game's name is known as Starlight. It's set in a time before the events of Foresight, effectively making this game a prequel. However, this game won't be a RTS. More details to follow in the near future.

Conclusion

We developed Foresight utilizing the best of our abilities, though we've made several bad decisions that led to a poor initial release. It was actually a 4-year effort with a team of up to 35 people. The core team consisted of 7 people. The game was originally slated to be released by end of 2012 but due to certain unfortunate circumstances, we were forced to delay the game.

I've never once mentioned this because if the game is bad, it IS bad. If people don't enjoy it, it's pointless to shove it down their throats. End of the day, what matters the most is you folks. If you ain't enjoying our games, then we've failed and definitely don't deserve your money. Period.

Let's hope we'll do better with our next game!

Cheers,
Jeremy

About This Game

Redefining Strategy in RTS games.

Foresight is an epic space-based RTS game that throws you, the player, into the thick of the battle as a commander. Lead huge fleets, armed with fighters and bombers across wormholes to fight it out with your enemy. Launch bombing missions, fighter patrols, plant observation posts or fire support base with reconnaissance units. Intelligence is key.

Recruit capable commanders as your fleet commanders; they'll not just obey your orders, they'll also talk to you, give you suggestions, raise requests and report on their progress. Fleets are semi-autonomous and therefore have their own command, which is separate from yours though they're under your command. This allows you to expand your forces beyond what you can control. They also progress alongside you, gaining experience and improving their abilities. As they get promoted in rank, so does your command; allow you to control more ships.

Foresight redefines the strategy component of RTS games by rewarding players for executing correct strategic decisions and not punishing players for a single mis-click or being less dexterous. Build order complexity is minimized to allow players to focus on what matters; building the right thing.

Need to arm a capital ship with fighters and bombers? No problem - simply make a request with that ship. Foresight's AI will automate the entire process - between picking the nearest shipyard with the lowest load and deployment to the designated ship.

So, what's your battle plan? Blitzkrieg? Flank attack? Even in space, such plans are possible because Foresight is built to deliver an reasonably accurate outcome. A large navy may not always win the day.

Finally, enjoy the epic battle as fighters dogfight each other, bombers performing bombing runs and ships firing all weapons in their full glory!
