A week ago we've been mentioned by PC Gamer in an article about BOAT-LESS! Here's a link to the article.
Thanks PC Gamer!

As for the mod itself, we are making steady progress. I know the page seems a bit...well...dead, but it really isn't!

Here's a bit of news on the state of the game:

Most of the geometry on the Water Hazard maps is done at this point, now it's just a matter of details and scripting. However, the new maps need more work when compared to Water Hazard ones. Some of the new maps are nearly finished, but a few are still far from done. The mod will not be released without them though, if that wasn't obvious :) We are also nearly done with recording all the voice acting for the game. Unfortunately, we had to change our composer, but a new one is already hard at work to deliver some new cool music. Perhaps I should provide a sneak peak of one of the new tracks soon? :)

Here's a bunch of screenshots from one of the new maps:

That's all for now. As you can probably tell, we are far from dead, and the mod will be released in the near future. We are aiming for a 2017 release, however I can't be 100% certain that will be the case.

I will try to keep this page more updated from now on.

Thanks for noticing this little mod and for the support so far!

I'd be really interested in how you're going to tackle the gunship fight towards the end of Water Hazard. Without the airboat if you're going to keep the gunship fight in, you'd either need a way for the player to be hide from the gunship's fire, or give the player the homing RPG early.

I'm doing my best to make it his year, but Q1 of 2018 is more likely.
