The month of media May-hem is officially over, and what a way to finish it. Thanks to mentions by PC Zone, Computer Gaming World and Valve Software, the Nuclear Dawn community is bigger and stronger than ever with a 35% increase in numbers and forum activity up 100% since this time last April!
Almost as if to celebrate this fact, the exclusivity period on the Computer Gaming World feature on ND has ended and we can finally reveal the scans of the article. In our three page spread in our project manager Dave waxes lyrical on how the capture points and resource system will work in ND, some of the team's industry professionals explain what motivated them to work on a mod outside of their studio hours, and there are brand new alpha screenshots of the commander's view, some of the RTS structures and a sneak peek at the stealth suit in full effect. Below are the first two pages of the article, the third wouldn't fit comfortably in the space so you'll have to visit Nuclear-dawn.net for the rest of the feature.
The alpha screenshots in these magazine scans are clear evidence of just how far along Nuclear Dawn is in development. With the beta stages this summer fast approaching, we are looking for a few talented level designers to prepare some new maps for this period that can be playtested right up until public release. If you think you have what it takes, drop us an email with examples of your work to email@example.com
So the mayhem's over... or is it? Next month promises to be bursting at the seams with media and game information. We'll be revealing more on the commander and stealth classes, releasing the rest of the story timeline with additional information about the factions, and to top it all off we'll even throw in an interview. Add to that a bunch of community activities for you to get involved in and you've got yourself one jam-packed June to look forward to! ;)
