Decent texture artist and voice actor, too.
Co-founder of Scotch and Coffee Studios.
I'm Archie, I'm Scottish, I'm 24 and I'm mostly happy.
To be fair it's actually closer to 4 years of development. Basically nothing from the mod before then still exists. It is still a crazy long time, though.
Time is odd.
I'm not sure what you mean. They're both the same thing.
It used to be, but she hasn't been in that profession for a long time
Sure, I'll send them right over. ¬_¬
Just regular Doom. Look behind you at the start of level 1
All our easter eggs are behind the player spawn in world 1-1. You get infinite lives and a chainsaw. [Citation Needed]
in which sense, sir?
Heh, this is a last safe-haven before a very, very dark chapter. I'm going to allow the player to have a bit of comforting light at this stage ^_^
Only compared to the 10 in the next image

There are thirty maps. If you spend an average of seven minutes per map (I'd estimate between 5 and 10 is realistic) you're looking at three and a half hours. Speed runners will probably be able to more than half that, and those who like to smell the roses will probably be looking at closer to five hours (10 minutes per map)
Ha, she wishes.
It would be quite challenging to install - this is two floors underground.
Ah, tracked down the bsp. I'm afraid nothing resembling that version exists in the mod - that bsp is almost five years old since the VIS blocker DEV texture predates even this screenshot:
It is, well spotted! However, it's probably not actually going to appear in The Core. I made the map for one of the rotating signs seen around the facility and just needed a quick backdrop to show off Commander Logan, so I re-used it here.
We'll see - it wouldn't be too much work to flesh this out into a playable space, but there's just not much need for it.
Here's what the map was originally used for:
Hi Toasty, we're not making any special considerations to speed runners, so there will definitely be exploits to be found. That said, we're not deliberately adding any skips, so you'll have to get creative! :)
YOU look pretty damn awesome
Urby's camera broke as he was recording, so we've got a slight delay. Within two weeks!
We're having real trouble picking our favourite question for the Q&A shirt prize! Thanks for so many great questions, everybody!
You can't, I tried. They're bolted to the floor.
I don't know what I like more - your avatar or the Hitchhiker's reference in your username!
What do you 'plan' to do with our answer?
And reveal our bleary-eyed 4am-mapping-binge entity names? Ha, an interesting thought. :)
You've got about a week to ask! Sorry, I should have set a definite date.
You can ask multiple questions, but we might not answer all of them depending on time :)
Asking twice doesn't increase your chances of winning the shirt ;)
to be honest with my track record for usernames, I may end up using "YOOOOooooou" for all of those as well!
Me and Urby differ on this quite a lot :) How about you?
How many would you like to see? :)
