In the near future earth is attacked by a unknown alien life form. They are small in numbers but use advanced technology such as teleportation and cloning. Unreachable in space they launch a series of ruthless attacks on earth’s major cities and infrastructure. You play as Joris, a Dutch citizen. After Joris and his girlfriend survived an attack on their city Joris is drafted by the army to help defend planet earth. After just 2 weeks of training Joris gets his first mission: to infiltrate an enemy spaceship and destroy it from the inside. It seems like a suicide mission. To make matters worse the toxic atmosphere of the spaceship begins to mess with his head and cause sporadic hallucinations. After a while he finds it harder and harder to distinguish fantasy from reality... Can you lead Joris to a heroic ending or will you secretly align yourself with the forces of evil that hide in the spaceship?

Deranged is still being worked on. This year I've built two very detailed city maps, still working on the lights. Yes, it took me a whole year but this city has about 96% custom textures for each building, lots of stores, a small park, a small church with graveyard, and more. I might post some screenshots when it's done. I've also (finally) finished some of the spaceship maps that still needed some last touches. Still working on redesigning two spaceship maps that I think should look better.

For those who didn't get the memo: Deranged will be a very large mod. I'm mostly a mapper and I've been working on Deranged for ten years now. That might sound ridiculous (and it is!) but it also means lots of new and often large maps and a unique game experience. So bear with me while I continue building maps.

There will be lots of dialogue and conversation options in Deranged. You will be able to choose one of four personalities at the start of the game and your personality will change depending on the conversation options you choose and your actions in the game. Additionally I am trying to include several character customization options. During gameplay you will be able to change clothes, shave your face or "grow" a beard, get tattoos and more... In short: you will be given as much control over your character as possible. You will decide how he looks and how he behaves!

If you want to help in any way it would be appreciated. I'm looking for dedicated people with skills. Coders, mappers, people who can make models or help import models, I can use just about anything except voice actors or musicians (sorry, maybe later) Get in touch!

Signing of with a merry christmas and a happy new year! Enjoy the holidays folks!

Thanks! I've got two posts related to Deranged on the offtopic forums and one on dxalpha. Positions are still open, if anyone can do mapping, coding, modelling or create textures get in touch! People who are still learning to map are welcome to help make small details in the city (buildings, rooms, etc) I've been mapping for years and can teach you a lot of things in just five minutes. PM me or send an email to
