We are in TOP 100!
And before we close this news, we would like to thank you. We are in TOP 100 and we appreciate your support very much! We hope people won’t stop up voting us, as we are getting closer and closer to our goal.
As a small reward, we will to share some more tidbits about how we progress on the multi-player.
The first map, op4_rubble had reached the beta stage and is completely playable. Thanks to this, we can perform all the basic gameplay testing on the weapons and other basic mechanics of the multi-player build. And more maps is in progress to be ready for the initial release. So in terms of progress, everything seems to be in order.
We have plenty of updates in the pipeline, so stay tuned for them. We will show you some more media and teaser trailer from the single-player campaign as soon as we get it ready (it won’t take long). It seems like it’s also about time to start introducing you the multi-player a little bit, so we plan some media from MP build as well, so we are seriously considering a gameplay trailer from it. We should start working on it as soon as more maps get into the beta stage.
PC Gamer also just released a short news about the projects, make sure you check it out as well, as there are some exclusive pictures ;).
That’s all for now, thank you for your support! In the meantime, this is where I get off.
I can whistle and gently sing. Any use for me?
Wanna fly to Seattle and be my personal entertainer while i work on my maps? :P
Sure. I can sing any Bette Midler song like a champ. So... when's my flight leaving?
I can beta/alpha test the game, any use for me? xD
I'm a beginning 3D modeler. Any use for me? I'm can't say I'm the greatest by any means, but if you give me a trial test, you can see what I'm capable of.
Sure, 3D artists are handy. Do you have something you could show us? If you are interested, leave me a PM ;)
Wow, that is good news indeed! I voted for Greenlight, and I truly hope this mod gets the needed votes to pass!
Good luck! And I hope you guys reach top 10!
< 3D Modeler here, I'm getting a 404 on your application page. Message me if you're interested, I only have the the pictures I have uploaded on ModDB on my profile, check them out.
If you can supply UV Maps and Textures, I can supply prop models :)
If you're interested I can PM you loads of examples of my work.
Well, it's somehow major drawback if you can't supply UV maps and textures, but you can still PM me. If your work is worth it, we may consider you.
Eh im an okay artist, it takes me awhile to actually draw something really good or decent. But your current guy already does a good job so you don't need me.
I'm a good play tester though, I'll scope out most of your bugs and glitches/artifacts in a day.
Nope, we are not looking for testers, rly. Artists are handy, the more the better though ;)
This comment is currently awaiting admin approval, join now to view.
I would love to get into working on mutliplayer, sadly I am so loaded with work these days it would be nearly impossible. I'll keep tabs on this, though. If you guys still need a mapper for multiplayer when things quiet down, maybe I'll join in.
Sure, drop me a line when you you feel you have some spare time you could dedicate to us :)
I'm interested in applying for concept art and hard surface or organic modeler. I have 3 years of training from the Seattle Art Institute and I am reasonably proficient in Maya and Zbrush. However most of what I can show is student work which show a lot of errors and mistakes I have since learned to avoid. I would like to put together some fresh examples of my work to be more accurately judge by. What, and how much, would you guys expect to see for an application for each of the above listed categories?
