all aspects of the game.

No Return

No Return V1.14 should be with you sooner rather than later now that my PC problems seems to be fixed, fingers crossed.

Development So Far
V1.135 although nothing more than a series of code tests does at least bring with it some gameplay which could possibly be expanded upon. No Return was never going to be a zombie game but given the code works Im sure the game mode will be easy enough to keep in for those who want it. Surviving in a hostile open world wilderness environment is still the main aim.

Development still requires a lot done to animal AI, player gathering and building systems and a million and one other things, however progress is being made and I can see features coming together well enough for a prototype.

NO RETURN - Dev Build
Read the Start Guide (Link at top of page) for game start keys etc. None provided in dev build.

Im pleased enough with how it is progressing but also realise there may be trouble ahead, expecialy with multiplayer code at the back of my mind. Multiplayer will of course change the game but its a big challange and one which might be beyond my limited knowledge of the engine. Time will tell, Ive made it this far so we will have to wait and see what the future holds for the V2 series when I start it.

As for graphic quality that is a long way off still as Im way more interested in features, AI, and gampleay over making assets look better just now. Im sure in time Ill be able to bring it up a specification and to make it more appealing, until then expect blocky basic graphics.


Even though its prototype assets I think its showing some nice visual here and there and Im looking forward to Virtual reality at some point in the future.

So this post is really just to say keep the faith, now that I have a working PC again expect a download soon and some more news to follow shortly.

No Return

I'll also be expanding the forum to include a bit more information so if you are interested best join and have a look. If you do have a few $$$ gathering dust send them our way to ensure we can turn what is a promising start into a finished game.

Thanks for the support and if anyone has any ideas or wants to get involved with development feel free to comment here or on the forum.

Above screenshot shows some ideas for a graphics updates to come later.

Hey guys, been on the group for a while but I don't think I ever really introduced myself here. I'm Daniel (most people know me as Dan, TheWalshinator or Walsh) and I'm the project leader at Walshinator Productions, where me and my currently small team are working on a first-person psychological horror game series called ALWAYS HUNTING, a prototype for the first of which (Jacob's Story) is currently in development.
Help is always welcome and greatly appreciated, so if you are interested in helping out or just want to chat (which I'm totally fine with), feel free to send me a PM or hit me up on Skype (thewalshinator1). I'll say now that we do not currently have a budget, so paid work isn't an option right now but might become available in the future, because I plan to launch a fundraiser campaign after the prototype's three levels are completed.

I don't think it's really a problem since UDK is almost fine as it is. My only grip is that the C++ source code is locked and we are now stuck with Unreal Script forever...
