Some weeks ago we received sad news that we want to announce. Jaguar, aka Nahuel Agüero, a Black Days scriptwriter, died at age 23 when he travelled to Brazil on Januray 26, 2014.

He and his friend, Vanina Soto, 25, were in Drum Hole (Agujero del Tambor) in Palhoça, Florianópolis. Vanina was close to a rift taking photos. A wave dragged her to the sea and Nahuel came to help her. Unfortunately, they were drowned. The lifeless Vanina’s body was founded first. Nahuel’s body was located a few days later.

We want to do a small, heartfelt tribute. Thanks to you, Black Day’s script has been
improved in every way, and thus the entire project.
We will always remember you as a hero, great guy, committed to nature, and a big fan of videogames and movies.

If something beyond life exists we hope you meet with Kain.

You will always be present in our memories. Rest in Peace.

Hace unas semanas que hemos recibido una noticia muy triste que queremos comunicaros. Jaguar, más conocido como Nahuel Agüero, uno de los guionistas de Black Days, falleció a los 23 años cuando estaba de viaje en Brasil el 26 de enero de 2014.

Él y su amiga, Vanina Soto, de 25 años, estaban en el Agujero del Tambor, en Palhoça, municipio de Florianópolis. Vanina estaba cerca de un acantilado sacándose una foto. Una ola la arrastró al mar y Nahuel acudió a auxiliarla. Desgraciadamente ambos murieron ahogados. Primero encontraron el cuerpo sin vida de Vanina y días más tarde se localizó el de Nahuel.

Queremos rendirte un pequeño y sincero homenaje. Gracias a ti el guion de Black Days mejoró en todos los sentidos, y con ello el proyecto entero.

Te recordaremos siempre como héroe, gran persona, comprometido con la naturaleza, amante del cine y gran aficionado a los videojuegos.

En caso de que exista un más allá esperamos que te encuentres con Kain.

Siempre En Nuestra Memoria. Que Descanse En Paz.

Hi Shadowhide, sorry for the delay, I was working a lot these two weeks making objects models, graphics and fixing things.
At this time the game doesn't have quake-c or physics :( Our programmer has left his position due to personal studies but he is still in the team as beta tester. I am the only one making the graphics and models for the game, the other two members are writers.
About arches, those are patches like id tech 3, the format for the maps are the same for quake 3. But I am planning to make complex columns using models.

Sorry for my bad english :) and thanks for your interest.
I think in two days or so I will post the screenshots, stay alert. ;)
