» About The Chaos Engine
The Chaos Engine is a non-profit site run by a small group of volunteers. We are all video game industry professionals and of course, are passionate about games. The site is primarily centered around our forums. The direction and content of the site is driven by the needs and suggestions presented by our private forums members.

The site was started in 2003 to answer the need of gaming industry professionals for a forum and meeting place for news and conversation about the industry. There are many public forums on the Internet, but unfortunately most professionals become tired of the public attention they draw. The private forums on The Chaos Engine require that members authenticate their status in the industry before joining. We do however have public forums and we welcome everyone with an interest in games to join and participate. We have a large membership of professionals, many of whom who read and participate in the public forums.

Sincere apologies for the delay, the timing couldn't have been less stellar to be honest...

I've checked over the data and it all *seems* fine, please let me know if this is wrong.

Awesome thanks of lovelyness to he who shall not be named for help with recovering the data, and to UK2 for their assistance during the hardware failure.

(For those of you who are not aware, we had a hard drive failure which took down our box, and left us in a slightly embarassing position)

I'm now looking at new backup options, please try not to break anything in the meantime...

The Chaos Engine, 10 Years Old!
Aug 03, 2013 - 10:52 AM - by Prof. Shminky

Just Wow.

Capital double yoo.

Ten years old.
This is a pretty damned awesome occasion. I can't speak for anyone else here, but I honestly can't say it crossed my mind in the slightest that The Chaos Engine would have been still around and still going strong after ten years.

The vast array of wonderful and engaged people in our modest community is still staggering. Yes, people come and go (and come back again and go again), but as long as those that persist and those who join keep returning then I can't think of a reason that we won't be here in another ten years.

Since this delightful aspect of longevity has only really just hit me recently, I would really now like to see us still going in ten years.

We have arranged a London Gathering to celebrate.
We will arrange Skype calls from those who cannot attend in person.
Drop me a line and we'll sort that.
TCE Gathering Info

You are a wonderful person and you are part of an amazing community. Being in a community, at least one this size, is like being in a relationship with 1500 other people. A family of like- and unlike-minded people. Yes, we're going to have rifts and such, but it doesn't stop us being a collection of interesting and unique persons. For the most part it adds to it. I'm proud of what we have done here even if it's as simple and straight-forward as share information and get to know each other. Anything we've done over and above that - and there are examples - is gravy.

I'm stoked to be a part of your lives, albeit mostly e-lives.
I'm pretty sure I've touched you in some small way.
And you've touched me.

From myself, Photon and Tricky and Hoawan and MickWest and everyone else who keeps this crazy train afloat, THANK YOU!

Thank you for sticking with us and each other.
Here's to ten more years, eh?

Nine years. Nine long years.
Arguments, nonsense, banning various people, awesome discussions and some lovely and positive moments along the way...

Here's to nine more years...
