Ping! Currently the big project I'm on is a Total Conversion which uses the @[HPL2](engines:hpl2:272) engine from @[Amnesia: The Dark Descent](games:amnesia-the-dark-descent:13339). I have started this adventure in Feb. 2013, check the "Cadaver Party" project on ModDB! I've become silent on updates but do not worry, I'm still on it: I do this for me before all so I don't put myself deadlines. I also have the tendency to change, add, edit various things on a regular basis. I mainly do mapping, coding, texturing, SFX & music edit/mix. I make games for fun since the early 00's (mostly 2D stuff and 3D as well). Of course I love gaming and started playing games on Oric & 386. Sometimes I do localization works (ENG⇄FR) for games and apps on every platforms. I create websites as well. I'm always working on other stuff, maps, "secret" projects & prototypes. Drop me a line on Twitter: Yanka_Prod ... these are mainly updates about my projects, no spam nor bs. See ya!

Hey stalkers!

Just passing by to wish you all a good summer for those who can, to the others who work hard, be brave!

On my side, the private beta was updated two days ago to 0.4, it contains the 1st chapter. Winners of the private beta giveaway have been contacted among other newcomers in the test program. Have fun, guys!

The paperwork with Steam was also completed a few weeks ago so I'm good there.

Stay tuned for cool news in the close future (and public beta?).

Enjoy life, until next time!

Hey dear stalkers,

a quick comment just to say that the Greenlight is a success,
Steam got in touch with me some hours ago!
Very happy so thank you stalkers, really.
I'll come back to you soon for more soon.

Keep doing well, see you!

Hey, hello KrustiClawn! :)

Thanks for your good wishes even if Greenlight was removed some hours ago, let's wait until next week with Steam Direct to see how it goes!
Honestly I thought it would last a few more weeks but nope... too slow Yanka! In the end it does not really matter or change anything concerning the development.

About some users on the Web/Steam, don't worry, it's quick and easy for me, I only take in account constructive feedback.
I simply ignore the douchebags & trolls (or reverse-troll them if I'm in the mood). In real life the vast majority would certainly not have the guts to speak to my face like that (and they better not eheh) so I just don't care. I know too well how people are and act due to my previous job and I'm not here to befriend everyone. Oh, generally a lot of them are kids anyway so... why bother arguing with them. I just don't care, my brain automatically sets on the ignore flag.
I do that for a lot of things and it really helps making life better and easier.

Don't stress too much as well on your side, we're on the Web after all, a lot of people act stupid because of the magic of being behind a computer, they must have a pretty stressful or boring life, just let them be.

If they can't read a description and see it's a mod made by one person then neither you or me can help it and we must not waste our precious time for this crap.

As a reminder, I have a special power on this project: since the beginning I do it for myself before all, not to appeal and sell some product to a target and make money out of it. If even a few people can play it and hear my little story, it's cool enough. ^^

To summarize: "You [subjectively] don't like what you see? Ok, no problem, I'm not here to please everyone, just fly past me. There are plenty of other games & mods in the ocean for you!"

I am rather proud of my work plus I am a big perfectionist, so it's a good sign I guess.
Be proud of your work too, I played several of your CSs and had a lot of fun (truth).

See you!

Hehe, only 2:30 and the Greenlight is open.
Concerning the update of the beta I'll PM everyone directly and will also make a blog in the testers' group in due time.

Fingers crossed.

Hey GreggRulzOk & umbakarna (and everyone)! (^-^)/

I'm still working on it (of course!) so please do not worry, thanks for sticking around plus your "big" patience!

Yep it has been more than 4 years since the project began! As you already know I create this alone, being alone is both good & bad (I might detail this point in the next news) but everything is fine. I don't really have deadlines since I create this for myself (to help myself) but I intend to release it someday, hell, no joke! :) My life "IRL" is sometimes a little complicated but I manage to get back to work everytime, always!

Since last year & last blog update (wow, Feb. 2016, I really should post something soon), a lot has evolved (again), maybe you saw some screenshots on Twitter, I try posting little things sometimes.

New mechanics have been added (I had a lot of fun adding original stuff) but also maps, rooms, puzzles, wrong ends, textures, decals, particles, sounds, music with even some made by friends.
Changes in the story came as well (and will come again).

I edited/removed things when necessary and worked a lot on optimization (a real lot).

There has been various test sessions to help me correct bugs, problems and enhance gameplay thanks to friends around me willing to try the game and help, while I take notes in my notepads, watching them in the dark without saying anything.

This project is like a perpetual mutant even if the majority of items on the list are ready to serve.
I could release a portion of the project right now if I wanted to but it's not "enough baked" yet, at least for me.

I'm thinking about posting some "real" news article in the close future and maybe make some announcements (i.e. new private beta update... open beta/new demo... Greenlight page before the service shuts down... which means making a new trailer... also, release of the project as episodes... etc.).

Various things in the pipes as you can imagine even if lots of work has already been done.

Can't wait to propose you all some good meal to eat!

See ya stalkers!

Hi stalkers, quick news.

The demo has been taken down today because there are too many problems with the latest Amnesia TDD update. Details about it & other points here: Bit.ly

Thanks for your understanding.

Yanka @ Month #34 dev. diary - big demo update, complete mod nearly ready!

Hello prenz,

I am very sorry for those crashes plus your specs are fine to me. :/

Have you tried the new 1.2 demo, released yesterday? I worked hard on optimization in this new version. If you haven't (and want to!), try playing using the new Performance mode. You can select it when you start a new game, it may help a lot!

My testers reported a big improvement in terms of framerate, if you try it could you please tell me if you still have low framerate and crashes?

Thanks a lot for your feedback!

Yanka @ Month 34 - [iF.] - [Workbench?]

Thanks and don't worry, your comments matter!

I tried not using too much "general" ambient lights but recently I tried a new method to light my maps in dark areas, you can see it in the demo at moments.

In the future, those pitch black areas will look very faintly lighted, I am thinking about doing this for for all the rest of the maps. It looks better and I had some feedback on the private beta & demo saying "those places are too dark and hard to navigate in sometimes", so I changed it.

More lights, particles, details, etc., will be added, especially in this map which is the last of the two I'm still working on (seen in the last four screenshots).

Thank you for your comment, this area in particular is an example of very dark place indeed but of course most of the time in the mod you can "see were you go", do not worry.

I just thought the scene looked good for a screenshot, maybe not. ;)

Hey there,

you want something, I understand - just hang on a little!
Also don't worry, there are still players interested in Amnesia, not everybody has left for SOMA or others!

Hello boytim (and sorry for the late reply),

I'm currently in the "finalizing" process. When I'm done with this maybe I'll send you a beta invite to test the last private build(s) if I need it. In any case your offer is noted!

Oh and to all those asking for the release date, no need to ask, just read the description. ;)

I hope to bring you some great news very soon.

Thanks to you plus everyone for your interest and see you next time!

Thanks! In the beginning I just wanted to remake a chapter of Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, since then it has become something more personal (story speaking) - but of course I have been clearly inspired.

If you want to make a mod about CParty too please do, I would be interested in seeing your "adaptation"!

Yanka @ Final Revelations V.3

Hi, I just passed the whole afternoon/evening on your mod (taking only a 25 minutes phone break in the middle) and it was a great one, I liked a lot of things! I saw some bugs and typos so I took screenshots while playing, I'll send you all this soon, maybe tomorrow, I'll write a review too. Anyway, GJ!

Hello everyone, just a quick comment to give you some news!

I have not worked much on the project during February but right now I'm working a lot on the private beta of Episode 1 - things goes very well. Current stage of dev. is adding last details, polishing everything, finishing code, debugging and so on. The private beta for Episode 1 is about to be launched.

The private beta team is already ready and soon they will have a build. I'll organize something so some of you here get a special access too!

The first private beta build of Episode 1 will feature between 4 and 6 maps. Final version of Episode 1 will propose 10 maps. Maps will be added during updates of the beta process.

I'll write real news with more details soon.

Thanks for stalking!

Hello there,

about the demo thing, I'm thinking about it. Currently I'm finishing the development of the "Special Chapter" - you'll see its final name when released, I think it will probably have its own moddb page to avoid confusion (these two projects have different stories although they share a similar universe and time).

After that I'll restart to focus on the main game... I'll see for a demo then. Maybe, maybe not, I don't make promises, but I consider it seriously.

Concerning characters, I voluntary keep the secret until the release. That's why I only post screenshots of the environments I'm working on. Suspense!

Anyway thanks for your wait and your interest!
