Why isn't that intro story trailer in the game?

Quoted straight from the intro story trailer thread that's stickied on this board:
I do want it to!  I didn't have time to code in the movie playback functionality, though, which is new to us for the engine.  I really want that capability in general, though.  My current goal would be to make this video kind of a "log entry" that you could crack open when you go to the hydral planet.  Originally I wanted this to start playing when you first start the game, but the video is so long that would be kind of interminable.  Finding it as a "bonus" sort of a feature is a lot more fun, rather than it being a chore, I think.

For those wondering, khadgar (Jeff) is the voice actor playing the Hydral. :)

And, if you're curious, Ally Mack is who plays the computer in the game.  This is her youtube channel (I'm quite a fan): http://www.youtube.com/user/ASMRrequests

I hadn't seen this video myself, so thanks for linking it!  It certainly explains the problems that I've heard others have with the game: "How did the other races wipe out the Hydrals without being spacefaring - it doesn't make any sense!"  Would be great for it to be in the game.

Thanks for that.  Explains how the Acutians manages to blow up the Hydral homeworld without (technically) being space-faring.  Sort of.  It wasn't that the races couldn't put things in orbit, but anything that was manned was shot down.

Put it in the game AND take the same voice instead of the random "cute" girl voice..

Random cute girl is your computer.

I never thought of it as 'cute girl voice', it sounded fairly computery to me.
