Hello all!

Production on Revision 1.0 is finished. Some of you are wondering why we aren’t shipping yet. We’re addressing that today.

A while back we started incorporating tech into Revision that was a step beyond what anyone had ever done with this game. We implemented engine-level bug fixes and tweaks for the game’s rendering system, such as allowing decals (e.g. bullet holes) to appear in mirrors, ensuring footstep sounds occurred correctly, and increasing the limits for BSP geometry to ensure that our environments could be more detailed and more stable. We started using portions of what has been named the Revision Framework (so named because we led to its creation, not because it is exclusive to the inner workings of our project), a piece of tech that makes it relatively easy to expand on the game’s content and systems. We are quietly working on RF, intending for it to be released to the DX modding community.

Concerning the game's content, we have tied in continuity threads to the official entries in the franchise in the form of emails, logos, and other references. We also discovered some potential copyright problems in both our in-game and promotional graphics; we’ve been very busy reworking things to make sure those don’t become troublesome later on.

All of this lead us to feel extremely cautious- we want to ensure that when we release, there are no potential land mines waiting for us. So we approached Square Enix with the intent of making sure that everything we had planned was going to be fine. They’ve been very helpful and supportive; the processes has gone on longer than anyone anticipated, and we're taking advantage of the time to implement little fixes and bits of polish that were otherwise slated for the 1.1 update. On the one hand, we would love to get Revision out the door ASAP. On the other, we’re committed to making sure that we can release it and maintain it in the best possible way, and with as few stumbles as possible.

Thank you for your continuing support and patience. We almost have everything in place. And the satellites are ours when we need them.

Just come out and admit these are all Photoshopped screenies, and Caustic pulled off the greatest hoax ever perpetrated in video game history. I could actually respect that. :P

I accidentally deleted the mod in a fit of cough syrup induced euphoria, we basically have to make it all over again

Actually this could make a pretty funny hoax... assuming they'd come clean. I suppose their release "promotion material" would be Agent Denton signing the "You've been trolled" song...

Give us back those two minutes spent everyday coming to this site for the last few months!!! lol

Honestly, if it were "released" with a fake download and installer, appeared to load up DXR, then just played a rickroll video, I'd never stop laughing.

That said...

Right, so now apparently we're waiting on Square-Enix? For a mod? That they have no involvement in whatsoever? Great. May 2017 then? I'm with dev221117, this has gotten to become such a joke that I simply don't even anticipate it any longer.

The fact that you complain about others and whine about how "toxic" this page is just because some are getting fed up with being spoonfed horsecrap, exemplifies everything wrong with fanboys.

Yeah, "bye bye", downvote everything detractors say, it matters not because I shan't waste any more of my time, nor will I return to this page. yay, echo chamber wins!

Being cynical is one thing, being bitter is another. You make kitty sad :-(

A year+ of lies and empty promises and constant disappointment wrapped up with fanaticism and blind loyalty has turned cynicism into bitterness. I'm done with it, tired of logging in to check status and reading more excuses and hand wringing.

If it comes out, fine, whatever, but I'm done wasting my time. I just feel sorry for anyone that has "dared" speak up and not just gush with praise over something that for all we know doesn't even exist. So yeah, you're no sadder than I am.

The issue here is that everyone has not been on the same page. We have at various points thought that at the current rate of progress that we could meet the deadline set up, at least some of us thought that and made an announcement without everyone agreeing on the time table.

Trasher is our only mapper and progress depended on him heavily, if he went away or had much to do in his real life progress would slow down. We should of course have anticipated this and not made any announcements until all maps were complete. We also misjudged the amount of time fixing bugs and playtesting would take, and then ultimatly how long time the Square Enix talks would take. Thus we can't say anything at this point. We are hoping it will be "soon" and I'm sure it will be (depending on how you define that).

Also set up some software to monitor our RSS feed, that way you don't have to spend any time on our page and you will get notified the moment we update.
