Every summer, gamers go through a debilitating drought. The well of releases worth playing slows to a trickle and many are left to do nothing more than drool over the titles planned for release next holiday season. It's during this time that many gamers come to ModDB to satiate their gaming appetites. They search high and low for something that will pique their interest.

While the MOTY Awards provide a wealth of choices among mods and indie games, they usually overlook gaming gems within our community released in the first half of the year. To combat this oversight, ModDB has launched the Summer of Mods & Indies event! Featuring exclusive content from all the major releases of the last 6 months, gamers are bound to find something to quench their thirst.

The Summer of Mods & Indies provides much needed exposure to mods and indie games in order to help them connect with their potential audiences. If you'd like to participate in this year's event, your too late... entries closed on July 15th. Instead sit back, thank the presenting sponsor US Air Force, and prepare to be bombarded with exclusive content from the best mods and indies from the first 6 months of the year.


Report article RSS Feed TNM Developer Commentary #2

Developers from TNM share behind-the-scenes commentary on the development of the Air Traffic Control mission.

Posted by stenchy on Jul 27th, 2009

Although the team behind The Nameless Mod has already detailed some of the ups and downs of their 7 years of development in their post-mortem, (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3) they still have a lot more to share! After all, any developer attached to a project for over 7 years will have more than a few stories to share. As a result, TNM developers Jonas, Lawrence and Nick have put together a series of developer commentary videos. The first covers the 'downtown' hub area.

This second video shows developer commentary on the Air Traffic Control missions.

A word of warning: these videos will contain spoilers.

Sweet stuff. Both vids are great so far. Looking forward to more.
And LOL at Jason and how vaguely surprised he sounds when he realizes that brilliant sniper rile is his own work :P

ATC is undoubtedly the best mission in the game.

Actually this one should've been OSC, and the next should've been DXI, but we love the ATC so much we couldn't stop ourselves, so the next one you'll get is the OSC, and then DXI after that.

I made so many weapons and we stole some from HDTP so I couldn't quite remember if I made the sniper rifle or not and thinking about it... I didn't model it, the texture was created from the original sniper rifle texture but!! I did animate it. I did some of the work at least. :P
