OK here's where this project is at:
I'm in talks with British Pathe for copyright permission on an introductory video, and their opening optimism (they didn't immediately say no like I thought they would) has given me the encouragement to try and sign up the London Symphony Orchestra for the music score, it's a bit ambitious, but I figure it's worth a shot because i've already got coverdisk and a 200,000 user subscription email list distribution sorted (and possibly even newsletter *hint hint*) giving me an apealling advertising window of nearly half a million users for this game.
This copyrighting stage is going to take me about two weeks. If I do sign one of these big names up then I am going to try and polish off every last nook and cranny from the game before releasing it to make it the biggest, bestest game I have ever written ... !
At that time I need to take a look at exactly what magazines it's going out on and their publishing dates and when the various email listings will hit, then i'll know when I can put the game up for release. It is likely one of the magazines will be the first actual place you can get it from, followed by a tie in with the email listing and web launch.
This is by far the most ambitious project i've ever attempted, and i'm all too aware I could fall very flat on my face - but what they hey - you only live once
