I agree to the preference of quality over speed. I have recently read Brave New World and 1984 as part of my studies of the utopian literary tradition and I've seen 2001, which impressed me immensely visually. Only now I realize where G String is coming from, being what I would call dystopic science fiction horror. I appreciate the problematization of environmental issues in the game, a topic dear to my heart. I see this game as a modern genuine contribution to the utopian tradition in a format that is perfectly suited for that purpose. Perhaps a little bit of history is written here, because I am certain that academia will open up to video games as distinct art form to be taken seriously in the not too distant future.
They must belong to the resistance. Sitting is not useful nor efficient in any imagineable way...
Sounds really nice, good luck with all your plans.
I would rather wait longer and have it as a full package.
Good luck and lots of patience with finishing that baby... or monster?
I love your mod. Thanks everyone involved.
Yes, I would think that it would be sufficient to be greenlit. Currently 5319 titles have been greenlit, and most of them are very conventional, not to say boring. Compared to them, G String is a real blockbuster. If you throw all the media here on moddb on the greenlight profile and make a newspost here on moddb, asking people to vote for it, Im quite certain that it will be greenlit in no time. The only obstacle could be the $100 submission fee, but even that is no problem if you ask the fans to donate for your project.
What do you mean by resources? What are the obstacles to go on greenlight? There are tons of games on greenlight that dont even deserve to be there in the first place because they are only proof of concept and will never be released. I cant imagine G String not being admitted.
I dont need to stress how professional this all looks, the level of quality is remarkable. Please do more newsposts like this, so that this game gets the attention it deserves.
Space combat was unexpected... very very cool!
Looks like at least on par with Titan: XCIX, and that was already the best HL2 mod!
All the best with your projects. I contributed some bad voice acting to TM back then. I havent played it yet, but will some time in the future for sure.
In case anyone is interested, I recreated the park terminal mp map for source a few years ago. Its in my profile. I hope the author keeps working on this mod.
Spooky... just a bit...
The atmosphere is impressive. Not on Greenlight yet?
Thanks for all your efforts. Im enjoying TDM very much.
Good! Im going to play it once in a while. How did you manage to persuade valve to release despite not updating it to source 2013?
@addi_b: linux support only with source version 2013. So no linux support. NT is still on 2006.
Best of luck to your project, looks very innovative.
I loved every bit of it, thanks for your and retro's quality work. Regarding the voice acting, I think it gives the mod just the right amount of irony, contrasting the dark-themed atmosphere. The mod is taking itself serious, but without taking itself too serious. There is some charme about the unprofessionalism in voice acting that makes it the more sympathetic.
Good job guys, good job. Anyone know when HDTP(full) is supposed to come out?
First of all congratulations! But as a former hardcore fan of the mod version Im not quite convinced enough to buy this. Everything Ive seen so far resembles the mod version very much. It could have easily been implemented into it, so that there would be no difference between this and the mod, not gameplay-wise nor graphics-wise. Its a slightly updated mod version really. But I dont want to be all negative, I wish you all the best, and if you release a linux version I might even buy it eventually.
Looking good. Waiting for this.
Why are you not on steam greenlight yet? That would solve your going indie problem.
Deus Ex Nihilum!
Please convert this also to Mac and Linux.
If this was sent to Steam Greenlight, I think it would be greenlighted pretty quickly.
Does it run on Linux Mint 13?
And why is this not already on Steam Greenlight?
Great music for Nihilum man, great work!
Thanks! Great job on the music.
Interesting read. Hope you can find some peeps to help you expand on this. Props to you for making the effort and doing something about the current state of videogaming.
