If Splash Damage makes a sequel, it would be cool if Brink 2 uses Id Tech 5 because it has a great mega texture system. I was amazed when I found out that Brink uses Id tech 4.

We currently cannot offer to sell or share the engine even though we would love to due to the fact that we do not have time to offer as much support for it. Hopefully, in the future we will be able to share our engine with other developers and hobbyist who want to develop their own games using the Cyclone Engine. If you have any questions, feel free to email us. Sorry for the inconvenience and we hope you continue supporting us.

The Cyclone Engine Indie DB Page is up! I will be posting the Cyclone Engine's Progress Videos and updates there.

It is over 100 degrees here in Richmond, KY. So stay cool gamers! If it is burning up like an oven where you are, then this is the best time to be inside gaming. Respectfully Submitted...

That is great that you all are trying to make a bigger indie company. At this stage it wouldn't make sense for Steel Cyclone Studios to work under a big company name. You will have to provide me a lot more information. My skype username is jordon.mcclain if you would like to explain more there.

This trailer really looks amazing and your hard work has truly paid off. The music really flows will with the gameplay; not competing with it. It adds a great sense of emotion to the war. I like the particle effects and the animations. The movement looks fluid and the battles looks intense with many soldiers running on-screen. Keep up the great work! I think you are on to something...

This concept art of the gun model looks amazing and really is unique to the game. Many shooters, even the one I am currently working on (I'll admit) use the same modern gun models we've all seen before. Its nice to see something different for a change and I like all the details. I think its cool that it looks like it rolled off a factory production line; no offense gazornonplat. Thats what makes it unique and separates itself from other shooters.

So much detail, nice! Everything from the material of the clothing to the detail of the shoe strings on the boots... The vest looks awesome. I like all the different compartments and how smooth the model looks. Nice work!

I am working on getting the rights to the game studio name my friends and I are trying to start. Once we get the rights, then we will publish our business website and start an indie page for the game we are currently working on using this game engine and a page for the studio; our business. We might also make a page for this game engine as well.

Stay tuned :-D

I'm sure your project will flesh out and become really interesting. Give it some time and continue working on it. I don't know how much I will get accomplished with my game engine so far. Elements of War sounds unique and interesting. Good luck and don't give up! :-)
