-I'm guessing that you would have to be an enrolled student at Huddersfield University to get access to their "free" tutorials? Here's their tuition rates in case anybody wants to compare it to 20$ a month: Www2.hud.ac.uk

-Our tutorials are strictly video based so I'm not really sure how useful copying and pasting would be to anybody. We're definitely helping our members develop their games by responding to their questions in our forums and working on tutorials that they suggest.

-While they might not be the best solution for everyone, tutorials are definitely not useless (especially video tutorials). Tutorials make it possible for people to learn things by themselves in their own homes without having to pay big school tuitions or buy expensive books.

-Congratulations on your success as a professional UI artist! Where do you work currently? Maybe you'd be interested in doing a UI art tutorial?

Just my two cents about your two cents.

I'm curious which free University you are talking about? Do they teach the Unity engine?

Well...actually..there are definitely new videos and they are being released very often! All the Unity tutorials are new as is the Left 4 Dead mapping tutorial. The older Noesis content will continue to be released on design3 but we are also creating new content for different engines and software tools as well. Expect more and more to come!

Hey guys, thanks for the comments and support! (and thanks to ModDB/IndieDB for the news post)!

We had a lot of discussion regarding the pricing and we feel that the relatively low price of 20 bucks a month is a great deal for our customers, while still letting us cover all of our production costs. Most people don't realize that we have a team of 7 people working full time (or even overtime) and that these people don't have other jobs to support themselves with. Also, the original monthly price we were considering was over twice what it is now, so yeah, it's cheaper now than ever before!

We went with the subscription method because it made the most sense for both us and the customers. It's completely possible for somebody to subscribe for only as long as they need to and then cancel their membership (although we'd certainly hope they stick around, haha).

It can be very hard to stay motivated with all the awesome games and mods there are out there to play instead. Gotta focus on joining the ranks of those awesome games and mods instead of just watching them as they parade by.

I think maybe the main difference will be that you'll be able to buy games through IndieDB but not through ModDB? (seems like they need to be separate sites since you can sell an indie game but not a mod). So, in theory, an indie project might choose IndieDB over ModDB so that they can sell their game through the site. I could be wrong about this though. :)

Unity is very affordable compared to most other commercial game engines! You can even develop a game for free and release it commercially but it will have the Unity logo at the beginning (which might not be much of an issue). If you want to use Unity to develop for the iPhone you do have to buy the Unity iPhone license but I think it is currently only around 300 or 400$. Unity FTW!

Nice work guys! I just played the online demo and it was fun.

(It might be too late to make changes but it seems like either a block or a jump would be nice so that you could avoid the ninja stars. After playing a bit I realized you could hit the ninja stars with your attack, but that isn't mentioned in the Help or Controls menus at all. Just my 2 cents.)

Personally, I prefer concepts #I and #III from the bottom picture (1B and 3B).

The top 3 concepts seem like robot or futuristic armor suited angels while the bottom 3 are more traditional / human types. I like the second set better because of their style and also because you can see their faces, which I think gives them more personality and significance (of course, this may cause more work since you will probably have to do facial animation). I ruled out 2B because he's bald and I'm not sure it's even possible for angels to exhibit male pattern baldness, ha ha.

I think it's really cool that you're involving the community in your game design so early in the process and hopefully it will improve the overall project! Great work, looking forward to seeing more!

Umm yeah...

* Press F to lock onto any enemy or objective location

* Shooting accurately is pretty easy if you aim at the target icons (usually leading the targeted enemy ship)

* 3rd person flying perspective is already in the game

Try to actually be informed before you start making comments.

Eternal Silence is one of the best mods out there and I'm really happy to hear that there is new development starting to take place! Keep up the great work ES team!

Great idea and work on the package art guys! It's very cool that you are taking the extra steps to present your project in a way that most mods don't and are striving to be more like a "real" game. It's definitely not pointless and it would be nice to see more mods make this extra effort.

Thanks for the comments everybody!! We're glad you guys are finding it useful.

Broadsword: You're right we probably should have shown it applied to an in-game model at the end of the tutorial. If you go to the Noesis Interactive ModDB group page and watch the "Noesis Interactive Promotional Trailer" you can see the facemap on a Deathmatch character at the very beginning of the video.

Thanks again everybody and keep an eye out for new tutorials and DVDs !!
