Founder and Creative Director at Infinite Playground, a small independent game development studio based in England. I've come from a background of game modding, helping out several projects on ModDB before deciding to try the Indie Route. I still like to get involved with mods when I have the time!

This is an old build, they 'appear' at the point they become solid in the world.

In the final version the boxes will drop.

If it's fun they are welcome to my cash.

A higher end price for a decent game shouldn't be a turn-off.

The more people who can help on a project (hopefully) the less time it should take to finish and the better it should look/play as everyone is doing the best in their field(s), larger games would need a bigger team to get it done in a sensible amount of time.

The game has everything defined by the project leader, he or she has the full vision of the game in his or her mind and using documents like the GDD and team meetings/feedback will ensure the game ends up exactly where it's supposed to be.

Hey Sebastian,

Thanks for your interest but we already have a composer and audio engineer contracted for our current project.

I'll keep you in mind for future projects! I hope your search turns up some work for you.

All the best

Engine fees are so variable from true freeware to £500,000 for a UE3 license etc... I'd say the royalty split option could be the best choice for a small Indie. If you don't expect to make enough to see a decent return after the various royalty splits then you'd probably better rethink your game.

Apart from the great silliness of Sensible Software's classic game, what made it special was how much you cared for your team and desperately tried to keep them alive through as many missions as possible.

I have a horrible feeling I saw a med-pack and even health meters during that video =( fair well fun game mechanic, hello modern game design monotony.

So many people are saying to pass the files to another group of modders... what modders? If this Mod died from lack of interest then what help will releasing the files be?

Mods are dying left right and centre because of a lazy community who sit back and complain rather than jumping in and helping.

Shane you did an amazing job and I'm looking forward to our future endeavours.

I think it is quite plain but I think thats the style of architecture in the game. I actually like the colourschemes with basic geometry, coloured stripes and lables all over the place. I don't like this game so far, it doesn't seem like it will come close to Dx1 or even Dx2.

Really like the asthetic, the area seems functional and believable. It will be interesting to see how its used during the game.

I think its excellent attention has been paid to a more realistic take on future fashion rather than jumping on the cyber-punk band-wagon adn dressing everyone in PVC. I think the quilted coat on the far right is genious.

DX has been spoiled, this game is about personal vendetta, the only thing Square Enix seems capable of using as a story line.

DX1 your a g-man, a normal lacky in a cubical! You uncovered the story as you went. This game is as black and white as a final fantasy title.
