I'd have to say neotokyo for this one. In terms of multiplayer, I haven't played anything (non-retail) this good for a while!

However, as much as I love the moty's and follow them every year, I find there should be more emphasis on the players' choice, rather than the editors. It is the players after all that make up the majority of the community.

In any case, looking forward to the result!

Nah, leave them topless, or if anything, just put a very shredded top on. It looks far more terrifying when you see a mutilated and decrepit human body running at you in-game, so the more flesh the better. The horde zombies from L4D looked cool.. but weren't anything close to being "scary". This female (and the male) zombie are a completely different story. They look great and they look horrifying at the same time.

Great work, hannah!

Fair point, however it usually still is a third party conducting the interviews and the film or video game company uses that footage for promotion.

Although I think its good you're trying to show your appreciation, any project that attempts to do this by interviewing their own members immediately is going to lose credibility. Worst case scenario would be the community disregarding the project as a joke, as they will think you have nothing else to actually promote yourself with.

Don't be offended by this, instead see it as constructive criticism. If you want to show your appreciation to your members, while promoting your project (because, essentially.. that is what is happening) try contacting some of the modDB staff with an interview request, or if that doesn't work you can always try getting a hold of other related communities to see if they are up for an interview. That way you don't lose your credibility, you don't alienate your community, you get to promote your work AND you can show appreciation to your members.

If you are interested, we are currently looking for a character modeler and generally an animator for our 3d art. Its a Half Life 2 horror survival modification called The Forgotten ( ). We would be very happy to have you working with us, as I think you would really be a great addition to the team. If you want more behind-the-scenes information on the mod or generally have some questions, just drop me a PM or email me at

Kind Regards, and I hope I'll hear from you soon :)

Setis Feb 24 2009, 5:25am says:

another tough one. my personal favourite would have to be mount & blade, simply because I loved the feel of the game and it reminded me of my favorite childhood game - Conqueror AD 1086.

However, realistically speaking, I can see this award going to savage 2. The amount of work that was put into the top notch graphics, fantastic gameplay quality, the fast paced action and essentially the originality of the game make this a very strong contender.

None the less we shouldn't lose sight of celestial impact, they have already bagged most innovative multiplayer. I somewhat doubt that warlord will win, simply because their game is very similar to their mod and that sadly didn't last too long.

The only game I am rather unfamiliar with is Live for Speed, hwoever from the info I got on it from their profile, it looks like a fun game. But will it be strong enough to compete?

as expected, zeno clash won this award. Very well deserved and I'm looking forward to the release. Although I still stick with my reserves that I fear it might get repetitive quite soon, but that won't stop me from trying it anyway.

I need to revise my statement from before.. Taking a closer look at zeno clash. I am no so sure about Infinity taking this award. They have shown too little in comparison and zeno clash looks amazingly polished, perfect art direction, fantastic gameplay feel and generally very professionally put together. The only critique I could provide is that it looks like it will be rather repetitive. But we shall see.

Setis Feb 23 2009, 3:41am says:

This is a tough one to call. Generally all indie games I have seen so far have put in tremendous efforts and aim for originality and a high standard in their own rights.

My personal favorite would be infinity for a number of reasons, their immense gameplay mechanics, the freedom they'll offer players, the graphics, the detail, etc. However, all of the other nominations have something that makes them stand out, so I think this could be a real head-to-head race. I'm looking forward to the results!

couldn't have agreed more. Of course it'd be fantastic if everyone would win at the awards, let alone get nominated for them - but the fact of the matter is, that simply isn't possible. (Otherwise, what is the point in the awards anyway?) So it's just natural that not everyone is going to see their favorite mods get nominated. Fair enough, these are the editor choice awards, so the player based ones will probably be different, but none the less, fellow community members shouldn't get put down simply because they are dissappointed.

Setis Feb 22 2009, 6:17am says:

Well, I'm going to give my 2 1/2 cents again. My personal favourite to win this award is curse, simply because it looks amazing, has some unbelievable originality put into it, the art direction is fantastic and absolutely nothing about it says half life 2. So in respect to those factors, i'd definitely hand this award to Curse. It ticks all the right boxes for me.

However, both cry of fear and lightspire look very promising and will be tough contenders. The fact that cry of fear is a HL1 modification and doesn't look it the slightest is a big bonus on their part, while lightspire simply looks amazing in terms of art direction, gameplay and it finally is a big step away from modern warfare in terms of Crysis mods.

So, in any case. All mods nominated are nominated for a reason, because they are good at what they do. But I think when it comes down to it. It'll be Curse that takes the lead.

This is very true. And a very important point at that. I constantly meet people who are in it for the "short-time-success" without realising, that that is something that rarely ever happens. They read/hear something about people who came up with an incredible idea, which boosted them to the top and all of a sudden they feel they can do it, too. Gotta give them some credit for trying, but the fact of the matter is, that you need to invest a lot of time, energy, in most cases money and you need to have the willpower to stick it out. Otherwise everything that you have done will have been for nothing, and THAT really would be a shame.

Just look at the modding world, thousands of great mod ideas hit the scene on a regular basis and only a few months down the line, they call it quits because something didn't quite work out the way they had thought it would. I can only advise current and hopeful modders to take this article and video to heart.
