A few words about the "where is it?" contest and of course the Moty 2012 awards!

Posted by on


Yesterday was a great and unexpected day in the history of Lost Alpha. We won the MOTY 2012 Players Choice in "Best Upcoming" category. To express our gratitude, We would like to grab the opportunity to congratulate to all mod developers and fans on ModDB. Everyone is a winner!



We - the developers - do face many problems, having to fight with our families, to find a little free-time for our game; with our friends, to make them understand why we can't join them in the pub on Friday night; with our own eyes when we realize we haven't slept much, and we have to work in the morning; with our brains, because in most cases the most buggiest parts are always those, which we think they aren't.




In the end, we need to fight with the game, the engine, and thousands of scripts to make it work somehow. However, it wouldn't be much fun without you! If you wouldn't be here with us, if you wouldn't tell your opinion... of course, we have to admit, we couldn't make it to the top 5 ever without your votes! So be proud of yourself too, because we won this prize altogether.



Let's change topic. We had a contest here a few days ago, called "Where is it?". In short, we posted a screen, then players had to find out where it was captured, posting a similar screenshot. The winner of each round, in return, could tell us where to capture the next screen. In the end, we held 4 rounds, and promised to let the 4 winners do collaborate with us by choosing any part of the game (except for the beginning and ending) from which we would record a short video. The winners selected Pripyat Undergrounds, so we tried to make a short showcase of the map, without spoiling the whole area. It's really huge and easy to get lost, you will like it! The video was planned to be 30 seconds only, but it turned out a bit longer, hopefully won't be a problem :)


Don't forget, this is not the regular "happy new year" video, we will do that in January, 2013. Stay tuned!



Finally, we would like to wish you happy holidays, and a fruitful & successful new year with all your dreams coming true! See you in the Zone, Stalker!

Looks promising. Looking forward struggling to survive there... in the darkness, with my trusted AK and surrounded by nightmarish creatures.

Arrrgh!

I was hoping for just a tiny glimpse of the Harpy doing its thing, and it's completely absent.

That said...

If there was ever a modern depiction of Dante's Inferno, you certainly captured it, and what an achievement that is! The Pripyat Undergrounds are a nightmare to behold. Thousands of players will be wearing diapers whenever they enter that area - I'm going to invest in diaper companies, as you're going to help make me a millionaire!

It looks like a good deal of the undergrounds have larger areas, which is something that we saw in the concept designs for the original title, but never got to experience in-game. I'm VERY happy to see that your team is striving to make those awe inspiring concept designs a reality.

THANK YOU for this timely holiday gift to us. Merry Christmas to you and yours, and safe travels!
