Noesis Interactive interviews the modding couple behind Jailbreak!

Posted by stenchy on Aug 21st, 2009
Interview

Since its last release, the Jailbreak! Source mod has slowly morphed into something that has totally separated it from the stock Half-Life 2 universe. While it might be a while yet before Jailbreak! is ready to come out of its cocoon, Noesis Interactive chased down two of the developers behind the mod for a quick chat. Andrew and Laura talk about the upcoming release and their specific motivations for modding in the first place — have a look:

I hope this doesn't become like Duke Nukem Forever, wherein they keep saying they'll release it, then delaying it because of some excuse, then delaying it again and again and again until it becomes more of a joke than anything.

As things stand at the moment we have a completely stable version of Jailbreak going through testing that is just missing some key components such as the Perk system and a bit of polish here and there. The only thing that's currently delaying release is that all of us have been going through some life changing events over the last few months (Heavy work schedule and Surgery being a couple of reasons) which has slowed us down considerably. Once these things have been taken care of fully we will be pushing for a release ASAP!

I'd also like to clarify to everyone, that this interview was conducted several months ago now, and we are now waaaay more than 1/3rd of the way through development of the mod. I'd say we're now more than 9/10ths of the way through. Big thanks to Noesis Interactive for doing this with us, was great fun!
