Indeed. But hopefully that'll be done soon :) It's quite a long and big file, so I'm not surprised it takes a little while to process.

Lets just hope it didn't fail in the upload or some such.

Edit: There we go. All processed and ready :) Enjoy!

Our very own Emmy Wahlbäck :) The same person doing much of the in-game voices as well as plenty of the textures and even the Sanctum skibi-wallpaper.

I've tried to include the credits, and they are displayed in the Description :)

Hehe, Thank you. I'm quite happy with how it turned out as well :) We'll just make sure to include subtitles in the next one, as it might be easier to follow for some people :)

That is awesome, a simple yet compelling concept. It has beautiful visuals and nice touches like the voice acting and holograms etc. Looking great so far. If you're considering subtitles maybe just have it as an optional thing.

What's wrong with the AI? Are you referring to the video or actual in-game play? I re-watched the video and couldn't see any bigger flaws in the AI. It would help if you were more specific.

Firstly, this game looks absolutely stunning. It reminds me of Ratchet and Clank, but with a more modernised, refreshing, HD beauty treatment! The gameplay idea is just fantastic. This looks extremely promising. I love the idea of tutorial screens and anything HUD-related being shown in the map, not on a HUD.

The guns and aliens look fantastic. I'm extremely excited for this game to get finished, as it looks more promising then nearly every mod I've ever seen.

Just a very slight criticism. The Sniper seemed a bit off when firing, like it wasn't calibrated with much accuracy. Also, the enemies don't really seem to react to gun shots... they just seem to fall on the spot when "health = 0". Are these the only guns available? More guns or upgrades would make this game perfect.

Anyway, rant over. Downloading now! Looks great!

Thank you for the great feedback and the positive remarks. It's always motivating to hear feedback, positive but also the negative sides. I'm not quite sure what you mean about the lack of calibration and the reaction to shorts fired. If you feel like, try to elaborate so I can give you some more accurate response to it.

I can also say that what you're seeing and playing is the August release. we have many many new things already sorted out but also plans for the future. Many feedback issues have been resolved or improved along with both gameplay and visual updates. There are plans for at least another weapon, but even now there is a grenade launcher upgrade for the assault rifle.

It's great to hear that you are interested in the mod and we will do our best to continue the development of it, even though it might not happen straight away, as we're all very busy with our last year of school (Thesis mostly) and some other development projects we have planned.

I can however honestly say that our plans are definitely to continue the development of Sanctum to the point that it's high enough quality to be a commercial release!
