Hey there! I hope you remember this game because its been a little eternity since the last update. I must apologize for that but I have been rather preoccupied (again) and most progress I made does not statisfy me just yet ...at all. You might anticipate some major progress but I'm afraid I can't show you anything new or particulary interesting at this moment. It just felt like its time to send a little lifebeep out there...to show that this is still alive :)

You may not believe me but even though I have a lot of experience in this genre, mixing horror with surrealism in FPSC is extremely hard! There is a fine line between eerie and engaging and boring/ineffective and detaching. Having the constant threat of hitting the memory cap in mind, I made a lot of nice assets and levels and deleted them again as they where simply not "do-able".

There are some good news aswell though :)

I did dig in my collection of models and found some cool character models. I've put some efforts in these assets and would like to present them to you:

You think you can handle this guy? ;)

At this moment, I'm not sure what monsters and fiends will make it in the final release but I can tell you that I will try a lot more to make the models I already have look threatening and creative and to create new ones to match the games theme.

I tweaked the shotgun so you have gunlag, reoil, shader effects and you will only reload as much shells as you fired.

The screenshots might be a bit dark. Its a roadside motel by night from a memory sequence.
