A recent interview with Sébastien Dujardin contains this nugget:
Quote:
M: Is there some game in the making that you could tell us something about?
S: We are working with Alain and Xavier on a new game with the Troyes mechanics. It’ll be located in space.

For the full interview: [SIC] 04 - Sébastien Dujardin

No, Troyes is much better than Alien Frontiers.

Yeah, in mine too. Troyes crushes Alien Frontiers. I wanted to love AF, unfortunately the point race mechanic in games annoys the crap out of me. Troyes does what AF wishes it could do and if they change the theme and alter some of the mechanics so it's at least a little different, I'm in.

All it would take is different art and I'm in. A space theme seems cool though.

This is one of those cases where it's actually a fact. Sorry you didn't know.

If it means I can finally get Troyes at a decent price, then, sure.

Honestly Troyes and AF are two vastly different games. I have both in my collection and they come out for different groups of people.

Alien Frontier for the casual nights.
Troyes for the more competitive nights.

I like Troyes theme already so i would need to see what the game does different to make me want to buy it.

The Troyes reprint is already overdue and should hit stores this fall. Hopefully there will be enough copies so it is not pre-sold-out.

Ditto. Never cared for the Troyes art style, and it is hard to read.

$51 seems to be the going rate at the big OLGS, and I bet some would question whether that's a decent price.

I love the Troyes art. I still haven't seen a space themed game, that wasn't Star Wars, where I liked the art.

I hope this proves the trend wrong.

Agree with this -- love the art for Troyes! Most space games I don't like the art in though, not sure what about it... since photographs of space are pretty nice...

I realize "Troyes mechanics" does not in any way mean it'll necessarily have the same artist... but Alexandre Roche illustrating outer space would have my attention even if the game it was for wasn't based on one of my favorite Euros.

Hello everybody,

We are working on this games since 3 years with Xavier and Alain. It's not "Troyes in SPACE", it's a new game with some mechanics from Troyes, but very different. I just finished working on the expansion of Deus. We will be able to focus on this project. We will keep you informed!

Sébastien

Awesome. Thanks, Sebastien. That's EXACTLY what I wanted to hear. One question? Why is my wallet bouncing off the screen? cool

Sounds like you just need to use more force.

Unless you know... Zman is handling it in which case it'll be OOP within the week.

I tried that last time and I was hospitalized for a week. Then when I got out there was the whole "I need to buy a new monitor situation". whistle
