Hey folks! It sure has been a while since you last heard from us, but, as you may or may not know, the The Forgotten team has, for now, decided to run bi-monthly updates, instead of just having random updates as new media comes along. This way we can ensure that you will only see the quality media you deserve. The team has been very busy with The Forgotten and a good amount of progress has been done, however due to exams, work and other obligations we also suffered some setback in our desired goals for this release. None the less, here is some eye candy and news on what has been going on behind the doors of The Forgotten.

Our lead concept artist, Kellie, has been working up some amazing concepts for the mod. Kellie and I have been working together for a good amount of time now, but still her work never appears to do less than amaze me. Below you will see what the concept department has been up to thus far:

So long and see you for the next media update in mid-June, which should include map screenshots, potential sound samples, concept and more!

Project Manager of The Forgotten

So you like story driven games?

Good for you.

All I said was, don't write this mod off like a prick, just because you're "sick" of seeing a certain "type" of game. The way a mod looks on paper, and the way it plays are two very very different things.

If you had a completed mod of your own, you might realize that.

Yeah that is pretty amusing

Good find cheesey :P

If you're gonna hate on a mod for having only concepts ,it's probably helpful if your own mod doesn't have NOTHING BUT CONCEPT ART IN ITS MODDB IMAGE GALLERY OMG.

huh.

My *** Kadick******. Why do people keep making these concept arts when they don't have a modeller? If they have a modeller why not show a completed in-game model instead of an ugly concpet art?

Well _Kat_ what skills do you posess? It's not a modeler that makes a mod you idiot, it starts with a CONCEPT to draw in new members, then a mapper/modeler then a coder and then you have a mod coming. Ignore this jackass, and I say very good work with the concepts!

I personally don't think the world needs anymore "Zombie mods"; if you are going to have the undead, atleast have original concepts for them, like the way Valve went - don't just make them humans that got turned evil by a "deadly virus", I think we have all heard that story far to many times.

Story doesnt matter for a ****

Gameplay is all that counts.

If it's fun , who gives a **** if it's already been done before

That mod of mine is dead for oer 2 years... And we had models but I didn't work on the ModDB profile a lot. Anyway, consider this: This mod is for HL2, HL2 already has had 728972349872340 mods that involved zombies just like mine but the thing they all missed was that you need at least 1 modeller and 1 coder. What skills do I posses?? I can map, model and I make photo realistic textures. So basicly I do everything graphicly. Wish I had those skills 2 years ago but oh well...

Also, Kadish is talking about "If you had a completed mod of your own, you might realize that." but I don't see any mod in his profile!

I just looked at his profile and i saw Killing Floor...Everyone seems to like it...So there goes that comment.

Anyway nice concepts; I like the guy, kinda reminds me of eminem...but cooler. The zombie looked pretty cool but he's got picture perfect pants...It seems abit weird since the top half of his body has been mutilated. Anyway good luck, hope you succeed with the mod.

thanks for all the comments and feedback! It's highly appreciated as you can imagine. Moddig games only becomes a properly fun project, when you get feedback like this from the community - so definitely thank you :)

And Kat, sorry to dissapoint you, but this mod is far from dying ;)

Hes not an optimistic guy I think. Zombie mods are awsome, and a lot of fun. Don't insult zombies.. Because I am a fanatic...
