Пока что прогресс разработки CUBE V3 ещё далёк от той заветной планки готовности, которую все ждут, но вместо того чтобы писать об очередных сложностях в разработке модификации, мы лучше опубликуем что-нибудь из своих маленьких успехов в общей работе.

Итак, в процессе разработки третьей версии кубичной модификации, в ней появятся собственные композиции. Как все помнят, на данный момент саундтрэк мода CUBE состоит из музыкальных работ стороннего происхождения. Это был самый первый мод студии AASC, и по банальной причине отсутствия собственного композитора в модификации не было задействовано ни одной собственной музыкальной композиции, на протяжении разработки целых двух версий.

Но, как уже упоминалось ранее, с выходом V3 в моде появится первый, собственный саундтрэк. Что касается старых композиций, задействованных в своё время в моде, то, возможно, они никуда не исчезнут по причине того, что без них уже трудно представить тот CUBE мод, который когда-то впервые увидели игроки. Все они по прежнему останутся в прежнем сборе на своих местах.

Также стоит отметить тот факт, что новые композиции по своему устройству достаточно примитивны, и потому в моде они скорее будут выполнять функцию заднего амбиента и появятся скорее в новых дополнительных главах модификации.

Ну, а автором новых ambient-композиций, является Константин Хантер – один из старых фанатов нашей модификации, который по собственной инициативе написал эти композиции и предложил их использовать в разработке CUBE V3. Что ж, скажем спасибо и пожмём руку таким бескорыстным фанатам как HUNT3Я, готовых помогать делом, а не словом.


At the moment development of CUBE V3 is far from that precious finishing line, which everyone waits for. But instead of describing difficulties in work on the modification, we'll better publish a news about some of our small successes.

So, the third version of the Cubic Story will have own musical compositions. As you may remember, soundtrack of the previous versions consisted only of “third party” music due to simple and obvious reason: it was the first project of AASC, and the studio didn't have a composer at that time.

However, as mentioned above, third version of the CUBE mod will be the first (pardon this pun) to have its own soundtrack. As for the compositions that were used before, they will probably remain in the project because it would be hard to imagine the project without them. So, you will be able to hear them once again as in the first release of CUBE.

We should note the fact that the new compositions are rather simple and will likely be used as ambient noise in additional chapters of the modification.

The author of new ambient compositions is Konstantin Hunter – one of the old CUBE fans, who had written this music on his own initiative and then offered to use them in V3. We're really grateful to such unselfish fans as HUNT3Я, who will act but not speak.

Looks like the curse of the number-name-of-which-can-not-be-spoken spreads at all products that at least somehow related to VALVe

It's been at 23% for a while now. I'd hate to see this mod fall into nothingness as time goes on. I had a great amount of fun with the latest version of CUBE and praised it highly for it combining elements from everywhere and blending them all seamlessly. I can only hope that V3 will have the same splendor that V2 had.

Also...spoiler alert, the anti-cheat thing could be'll know what I mean. :/

I just finished V2, and I have to say... As much as I liked the first half, and the attention to detail, the final acts were more frustrating than difficult.

The puzzles really lacked visual cues (the fuse parts were especially tedious), control was finicky in segments like the ventilation shaft, and the lack of explanation for the player character's memories -- or who he was for that matter -- particularly frustrated me. :/

Specifically, some puzzles started feeling very cut-and-paste. I think you should cut down on some sequences and puzzles, maybe less of the same mechanic? I think there's a reason Portal, for instance, only kept a specific mechanic for a few tests -- to reduce this sort of fatigue.

I know this seems very negative, but in the end, I DID like the mod! I just feel like it was very rough in the second half, and needed a bit more playtesting and feedback.

I wonder what it would be like to play this with a VR headset and a pair of headphones. I always liked the creepy, lonely atmosphere CUBE had.
