It's most likely going to be written in Alex's Linoleum programming language, so it won't be 64-bit, unless Alex decides to add 64-bit support to the language. And I don't think that's a simple task, it's unlikely to happen...
|Noctis V will include 64-bit support, correct?|
But I doubt it will matter. Noctis V won't be restricted to DOS, or even Windows. Mac and Linux won't be a problem, as long as you have WINE, I'm sure it'll run just fine...

|As long as it's not 16-bit like Noctis IV, that's fine.|
Lino at least runs on 64-bit operating systems.

|Alex, I wish you the best in your development. I am sure you will succeed in creating a beautiful universe to explore and I look forward to seeing the results.|

|Wow! This is outstanding news!|
Let the exploration begin.
Alex, I'd love to do a writeup for TIGSource. When might we expect any news concerning this revival?
In other news, I've evidently lurked this site/project far too long. I had to recreate my account.

|I won't speak for him, but he's been wary of pressure lately and publicity might not be good just yet.|
In any case, it's fantastic to see you working on a new idea Alex - you make some pretty cool games!

|Yeah, I imagine he doesn't want any sort of writeup just yet. Usually, when I do a writeup, I give the developer a lot of control in the process, so I'm not looking to rush him, just letting him know I'd like to do an article one day.|

|I've been lurking here since I discovered Nocitis in... 2006? 2007? It seems so long ago now! |
I've always hoped that Noctis V might surface one day, and was just doing one of my 2 or 3 yearly checks to this site, (for any new NV news,) and came across this thread, which made my day! To see that work is going on towards a new Noctis, even in a totally revised format is great news.
Keep up the good word Alex, you seem like a genuinely creative force on the interweb. Noctis IV was an inspiration to me, as it shows the true potential that "games" can have.

|Dear god, this makes me unbelievably happy. Ive waited 7 years to see these words! A lot has happened, but I'm still a big fan of Noctis, and check up multiple times a year to see how the place is holding up, and if there is any word on Noctis. Today is definitely a happy day |
(greetings from Afghanistan, btw. :p )
|Well, you might still be waiting a while. Alex gets distracted easily with these types of things. : P|
