Hey everyone!

My name is Andy Moore, and I've been a long-time Galcon player. You might recognize my handle if you played back in the first year :) (My registration date: 17/12/2006!)

Anyway, I'm here to bring you official news! Phil and I decided to partner up and take Galcon Flash to the next level. I'll tell you I'm not /exactly/ sure what I'm going to do with the game yet, but I have a few thoughts rattling around in my brain. 

That's right, we're taking this thing from "unsupported" to FULL ON DEVELOPMENT!

I'll be around the forums to hear the opinions of the loyal fans, and I'll be posting on my blog as well (andymoore.ca) when I have updates.

Anywho. If anyone has any questions, fire away!

I'd like to officially welcome Andy Moore, Flash Guru, to the Galcon development team!  He is definitely the best man for the job, and I'm quite excited to see the flash part of Galcon finally get the attention it deserves!

If you want to see the kind of awesome that is taking care of Galcon Flash now, check out:

Andy also has huge experience as a community manager, and has done community work in quite a few games like Fantastic Contraption:

So, give him a warm Galcon welcome!

welcome "back"!
it is always nice to see an old galcon player!
anyways.
my view of future of flash galcon is next:
Free
In browser
No bugs(now in flash there aer like millions of bugs)
Fast and easy to reach it.
More planets.
Same resolution.
Names!(n00b names are annyoing)
Rank for every player.
And of corse! I would like to test game when it is ready =)

Good luck with your project and have fun working with Phil Hassey!

haha ok :) im gonna say it again, its really cool you want to do this.

but I have a few thoughts rattling around in my brain.

please tell us your ideas, i really want to help as well. together we can make this game succeed.

i hope galcon flash will finally be recognized as a true brother in the family of Fusion and iGalcon, till now poor galcon flash was a neglected mutant baby.

1v1 rooms,

Discourage FFA (3 player+) 
encourage 2v2,

alternate modes, crash, stealth, ect.

think possible flash tournament.
