Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: The Core 2014 - Sedatephobia?

7 comments by Urby on Dec 3rd, 2014

Several sites featured our news article as thousands of Internet goers shared and retweeted. Reactions were mixed of course. For every person saying that the GoldSource engine still held up today, another would ask "What's the point?"

We have voiced our opinions on the GoldSource engine before in our Q&A videos. It's a part of gaming history, it's classic, it's clunky, it's frustrating, it's... lovable. The sheer number of projects both long running and new on this now 16 year old engine just goes to show that several people still have a special place in their heart for what is essentially a finely mangled Quake engine. :D

We don't expect to get anywhere near as many votes as last year, but we appreciate all the support we get from our followers and if you feel we're still worthy.

For old times sake, here are some of the most popular images from 2014.

How long shall we expect the Core to be? Also how difficult on easy, medium and hard will the mod be, especially if you are wearing BM security armor.

In terms of play time you'll likely be looking at a couple of hours, or more if you really explore the levels.

As for difficulty: The mod will be relatively easy on easy, about medium difficulty on medium and quite hard on the hard setting...

I'm honestly not sure how else I could have answered that. :P

There are thirty maps. If you spend an average of seven minutes per map (I'd estimate between 5 and 10 is realistic) you're looking at three and a half hours. Speed runners will probably be able to more than half that, and those who like to smell the roses will probably be looking at closer to five hours (10 minutes per map)

This is great to know! Somehow the content you have released seems to imply way more than 30 maps though! I am currently 15 maps into my mod, I intended it to only have 5-6 when I began! Probably going to have to rein it in soon before I end up with more than you guys!

We won't be releasing a demo. We are in the final stretch now so it would be a waste of time we could be spending on the full release.

We're very selective about the images we put out. We don't exactly want to show off every single area of the mod before you get a chance to play it. That would ruin the surprise.

We will be releasing more media soon but this is another process that takes us away from working on the mod. The more time we spend on the mod, the sooner you can play it. :)

The textures are constantly being worked on. We may release them with the mod but that's not been decided as of yet.
