Today I introduce to you DREAM CASTERS’ DUEL, an original, online, multi-player, stand-alone mod built upon the Quake III engine. Dream Casters’ Duel will combine elements of a FPS with a barebones fighting game in a stylized, anime setting. DCD will feature:

  • FUN!
  • An initial price point of $0 USD.
  • Cell-shaded rendering and anime styling throughout.
  • An engaging storyline and compelling characters.
  • A wide range of original, telekinesis-styled attacks.
  • Combo theory reminiscent of your favorite 2D fighters transplaced in 3D environments.
  • Surreal maps and seemingly hallucinogenic game-play.

Synopsis: Lucid dreaming: A phenomenon in which a dreaming individual is able to consciously bend the reality of the dream world to his or her own will, performing, for all intensive purposes, the miraculous...

Researcher Alchem Albrecht has assembled a contingent of test-subjects willing to conduct a foray into the nether regions of human conscious and beyond. The test-subjects all possess the ability to dream lucidly and have been hired to prove their proficiency. Empowered with the latest technology, Alchem Albrecht is able to both challenge and observe the contestants within the dream state. Only the most fantastic dreamers will witness the results of these experiments... Fewer still will come to understand their purpose, and only one will achieve their significance...

Please enjoy the following concept art extravaganza!…

Wow, this looks great. A definitely +modwatch. Hope you guys finish, because it might just make up for the fact that Seasons Forever didn't finish. ;)

Yeah, I was really disappointed to see that Seasons Forever didn't finish too. It didn't seem like they had that far to go. They could've at least released the Winter games...

Anyways, this will be finished! Despite the fact that right now it's not guys, but guy. Just me. Lol. That probably isn't too encouraging, but recruitment efforts are underway and rest assured, DCD will be completed!!!

Thnx for the encouraging words!

An initial price point of $0 USD.


Yes, at least initially. Eventually I'll have to conceive a way to make money off it, even if I have to burn all the files to CD and beat a bank teller over the head with it, lol. J/k. Was considering having a DCD Store with DCD merchandise. Seemed like a better idea then begging for money using the old PayPal donate button.

Thnx again for the comments!

Do you mean, "will it be licensed under the General Public License"? Unless there is a clause in the Quake III source licensing that requires all derivative works to be licensed as such, I haven't decided.
