My name is Ratchet, the lead designer and original creator of Ao Oni Source, the 3D modification for Half-Life 2.

Most of you have seen the mod go through over 3 different names and from the Source to the Unreal Engine. We ceased production mid 2013 as team members joined other groups to work on smaller projects.

It is now mid 2014 and we have come back together to bring you a completely redesigned Shadows. We are redeveloping everything based around Ao Oni. Redesigning the game in a whole new way. We will be keeping the main idea of Ao Oni but redesigning Ao Oni completely.

We just have one problem. The Engine, we would like you to vote and the most popular game engine wins. You have 4 awesome engines to choose from, each with their own special features, the voting ends on the 1st of June.

Thank you for your time and we hope that you enjoy the upcoming content.

What do you mean? We are not 100% sure if we will be moving over to the Unreal engine. If we do hopefully it will be free. I know the main game will be free and working with the Unreal Engine will make the puzzles easier to create compared to the Source engine.

Yes, the game is still going to be based on the original RPG Maker game Ao Oni. We had changed the name around 4 months ago aswell.

Hopefully, We are looking at putting this game on hold until we have the time to work on it. Due to our work times we rarely have time to communicate.

We are not 100% sure about this so do not think we will be going to instantly abandon the game but we are talking about holding it for a few months.
