Founded Sector49 Studios in 2009, I am going to high-school. I am responsible for the level-design, the models in the games, their textures, their stories, PR, and a few other things. I am working with the engine of FPSC since it's beginnings in late 2005. In my free-time I do graphics-design jobs and go swimming pretty often. I have an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2, but don't like Apple much. I'm also addicted to tea. I can't wake up or work without an Earl Grey tea in my mug.

Hi corporatefilth, actually we did before starting this project again with FPS Creator. We tried out all kinds of different engines (also spent much money on licenses), but returned to our old friend here, because we would have made an entirely new concept of an entirely new game and was just too much for this little team that can't work fulltime. :)

Hello Aralvar, to make it short, Canalyst is not open world which is due to the limitations of the engine. On the more technical side every level with all assets included is copied into memory when loading it. The engine is a 32-bit one and so only 2GB of memory usage are allowed. This just means that we can't put so much stuff in one level, even if we wanted to.

Hi 56er,

good question and I have a very simple answer to it. We just want to tell our own story. We are not making a fangame here. :)

By the way, if you saw the job ads here on ModDB/IndieDB, you might saw that we are searching for a great weapon modeler right now to have some awesome weapons for the game.

And hey, thanks for tracking. ;)

Hi Midnightmare,

yup, that bug is also known by us and we are already trying to find the problem. But for now we weren't able to find anything suspicious. We'll see if we will be able to fix that.

Hello Midnightmare,

we already encountered such a bug on two systems (not our testing systems). For now, the only way to get around this bug is to rename the file "cutscene3.wmv" in the "videobank/l01_canal" folder. The video won't be played ingame then, but at least the level will start.

Wir hatten diesen Bug schon einmal bei einem anderen Nutzer. Lösung war, im Ordner "videobank\l01_canal" die "cutscene3.wmv" umzubenennen oder zu löschen. Es ist wahrscheinlich ein Bug mit dem verwendeten Codec.

Übrigens, wir müssten uns mal wieder in ICQ sprechen. ;)

Hello there, Captain_Perfect! :)

Yes, as we found out, that Metro has a similar story, we were a little surprised, but if you look closely there are many differences between Metro and Canalyst.

As it is now, Canalyst is a zombie-horror-shooter. But we already planned other enemies. ;)

Best wishes,

Thank you, Cahir. Sadly the news war archived, because of no screenshots or something else. If you solve the puzzle, you probably will know when to expect something else than text. :-) Y.M.C.A. Barman is unpredictable. :-)

Hello, Cahir!

We are working very hard to get the level 1 remake done. Right now it doesn't look very good, due to the massive amount of lightmaps in the level, which the engine can't handle.
But don't worry - we'll get it soon. ;)

Best wishes,

Good, that you figured it out. :-)

The full version will be completely free.
