Cheers & welcome back!

Work has started on reviving the Ruiner. I am currently piecing together the new website for it and mountains of content needed. The website will function more than just a simple site like in the past with basic info. It will feature a wealth of content on the back story, mythology and social network aspects. The design and social aspect are finished. It is now digging up and editing in content that was never shown before. Additionally I am creating many new pieces of art for it. Once enough has been created for a launch, focus will then start on the webcomic and setting a release date. Even after launch, the site will continue to grow weekly with new features, articles and strips. The comic is being drawn with digital viewing in mind.

Once everything is full gear and running smooth, we'll start to talk about the upcoming game some more. The basics have been laid out for it and it is my hope this will see its first release in by the end of next year.

Anyone know the song used in the 2010 trailer? It sounds like Ruiner by Nine Inch Nails but it's clearly a remix.

use the shortcuts provided and check the included read me files for launching, and installing the mod. Many problems will occur if you use the mod menu instead of a shortcut to launch the mod, like many other d3 mods.

Hopefully, you guys can make this into a Standalone version. That will make us even more enjoyment since original Doom 3 didn't work very well in the latest OS due to compatibility issues. Dark Mod have already achieved that. I pretty sure, you guys can do it as well. Best of luck.

Impressive. There aren't much 3rd person shooters running with id tech 4.

Nice design.
