I am a composer, sound designer, hardware designer and programmer who is enthusiastic about gaming and game mods. I feel like gaming is the future of multimedia entertainment and the storytelling of today. I am especially interested in generative music and interactive music, that further immerses the user in the virtual world. I have built robots that compose music, data-driven algorithmic music, forward thinking electronica track, full symphonic works, multiple chamber works and have played in and composed for award-winning electro acoustic ensembles.

Sorry you had such a negative experience man. We aren't getting paid to make something like this. We are amateurs in the truest sense of the word, basically. We did put a lot of time and effort into the mod and we did it out of the love of creation and artistic expression.

I know you had problems with the controls, but really this isn't an action title. Its a different kind of game, entirely. Judging from your description though, its possible you simply had some graphical glitches. There is a lot of color correction going on, and we've gotten some feedback from a few players that a select minority of Video Cards are having trouble with this.

Maybe you shoudl cross reference with some of the screen shots? Maybe you could tell us what graphic card you have so we can improve. Specifically the GeForce 7's seem to be having problems now and then...

maybe you could re frame your criticism in a way that could help us learn more? We want to make something compelling and fun, and surely its not everyones cup of tea, but we are dedicated to ironing out technical errors for our next release.

Have you ever made a Mod yourself? Its tedious work :)

I thought that game ended up being a bit underrated. It was pretty different, and engaging.

Of course I'm a biased Lovecraft fan :)

We are working on audio solutions to help manage size.

Its amazing how quickly assets add up when you have a complete, all origional soundtrack, with lots of sounds.
