Solitude (Working Title) is a PSP and PC game using a heavily modified Quake engine, expanding upon the story of Halo: Combat Evolved. Expect a great, brand new single player story and all of the most popular multiplayer modes from Halo: CE! Our team is working hard to bring the game to you as fast as possible so be sure to stay tuned for any new updates. More information can be found on our site at www.halosolitude.com. Note: We are NOT ripping anything from any of Halos! All our models and textures are our own, made by using the original Halo art only as reference.

Report article RSS Feed Solitude Update: 43

The frick have I been?! Finally an update at-last, joy?

Posted by Samuk on Nov 28th, 2010


Welcome to Solitudes 43rd news update!


Well, I feel pretty bad. I mean I've practically abandon this project during the release stage due to that evil thing (Real life). I've left most of the tedious work to Peter (Arkage) and Greg (Xalener). They've put in an extra 50% effort to compensate for my absence, every year, we put in extra effort during the ModDB (and also now IndieDB) Mod of the year awards. However due to the massive step up in our education (Doing my A levels now, Peter's doing a full time Game course and Gregs doing something american.) we just haven't had the opportunity to work as much as we'd like. For that: I'm sorry.


Now we have that out the way, lets cheer things up.

Solitude's release

It may have not hit ModDB yet, but Solitude has actually been released, and since two patches too! Why hasn't it been released on ModDB yet? Simple. We wanted to make it a better experience for the wider audience; in this case, ModDB. Our little community has been playing it for about a month now, and it's been given a better response then I could've hoped for. A few more patches, and you guys here should have neat little download!
Here's what the current alpha looks like!

Menu


The website

We've had the domain for a while, we've had the website ready for a while. It's just been a time issue, however hopefully www.figames.net will be up and running in no time!


I guess I should finish this up with a plea for votes, but late bit ehh. Mod of the Year and Indie Game of the year.

Where did the past year go? Feels like yesterday me and Peter we're staring at that bloody scoreboard and attempting to spam the hell out of this lovely site.

We might have had delays as bad as valve, teamwork as great as this, but I've had a hell of a year working on Solitude, and I can safely say Peter and Greg have too. It'd be a massive achievement to be in the top 100 list for the third year running. Very unlikely, but still worth a shot right?!

Stay tuned for a Moddb release sometime very soon!
If you like what you see, we encourage you to Track the Game to be be updated on future media, the more watchers, the more pressure I've got to make consistent updates!

Thanks guys, See ya!

I've been following this mod for a while and I just wanna know, if Home brewing ur PSP is worth it? I've thought about brewing my PSP in the past but never have cuz the idea of third party **** on my psp sounds suspicious and unsafe.

If someone could perhaps enlighten me on the Pros and Cons of Home brewing (besides voiding warranty) tid be appreciated.

btw keep up the news.

Pros: Everything, Apps, Games, Emulators, Value Increase...

I sold my Hacked PSP a while ago cause PSP just got boring. But it was still worth Hacking it, Got another Year Playing it on and off out of it.

Cons: None, Aside from the fact if you do not know how to add CFW correctly or you cannot follow an easy tutorial on how to add it you will have a nice paper weight.

Sounds good to me! Tho i'll prob never do it lol. It'd kinda b cool is Sony allowed third party games, perhaps released thru their PSP network, or at least allow the best ones to make it.

Imagine the handheld dev community would grow and we'd all **** our pants at the free games!! O wait, sony wouldn't make money offa it, so why should they?

Well seeing as the "pain" part is in caps I thought it would bring emphisis to it and people would realise it was a joke (as in its spelt wrong on purpose, in case you didnt realise that).

It seems that shot miles over you head then.
