I'm glad this is still being worked on. I really like the 'rundown" and rusted look of the screenshots. Hopefully this will be released soon since these screens look awesome.

Yes. Unfotunately the release date passed on the old one and it got a slew of negative reviews since it was "released" without a download. I wanted to make a different page for it then.

Hopefully. Most of the work on the mod is done. It's mostly finishing up the fourth and last map before I can release it.

The complaining here is absolutely ridiculous.
A lot of mods go commercial.
The free version is still available to download for free
So they're remaking it and adding a price. You don't have to buy it. Nobody is forcing you to. Buying it merely shows your support for the hard work and talent these modders have shown.
The people complaining obviously have no idea how much effort goes into a quality mod like Dear Esther.
Counter-strike, Day Of Defeat, and countless other mods have gone commercial.
People here are basically claiming that this is somehow a "scam" and "free advertising" for a commercial product. There's an element of truth to that. BUT they already released a totally free and complete version that you can download and play at your leisure. I would agree with you IF they never released ANY substantial content and then "boom!" You need to pay money. That is clearly NOT the case here though.

The developers don't owe you anything. Nowhere in moddb's rules states "no mods here will ever go commercial". They've already done a tremendous amount by making free content and releasing it. What exactly have you done to contribute to the modding community? Besides whining in comment sections?
If you don't like it, don't buy it. If a talented musician decides to sell an album of songs he used to sing at gigs for free when he's become popular do you suddenly denounce him? A film-maker does some free screenings of a movie he's worked hard on. Why should he be blasted if he wants to sell some DVD's? Shouldn't good creative work deserve some compensation?
