I am an independent freetime game developer and creative mind. Experienced working with CryEngine, Unreal Engine and Source Engine. I am Lead Developer for the BLACKSECTOR TC Mod (Half-Life 2) but the project is put on hold for an indefinite period of time. Right now i study computer science in germany and i am working on my very own standalone flash game.
I was asked not only once but a few times, about the future of BLACKSECTOR. What will happen to the mod, what is going on in the BLACKSECTOR universe? Well, i cannot tell you right now. I just know that there will definitly be such a thing. Anytime. Because i want it to be. It was always my dream to create a immersive multiplayer sci-fi shooter and it still is.
But i am currently not working on anything BLACKSECTOR. Not at that moment. Not in the next days and not in the next weeks or even this year. Of course i was thinking about a revival of the project. Give it a totally makeover, another story, better features and the most important thing: a simple and clear vision of the idea behind BLACKSECTOR. Right now there is no team and no time working on the project. But maybe someday in a galaxy far far away from here you will hear about the UASC again...
For all of you asked what i am doing and not asking what i am not doing: i study computer science, been really busy the last few months and i am working on a new, much smaller project. On my own. With a pretty clear and easy idea behind. Creating a simple platform game. Nothing special but very funny. A nice story combined with a visually beautiful world. Hopefully some of you will check it out, when there is more to show to the public. ModDB was always a nice place for me to reveal things first and so it is still the same these days. Stay tuned for some news.
