Story so far: 'You are a mercenary in a Merc group hired by a company to investigate a resent terraformed planet called Umbra. A colony had been sent to Umbra before your arrival , but the colony was welcomed by disaster.
As you investigate the planet you will encounter different aliens never seen by man. Scientific and alien weaponry is also something a sci-fi mod should have.'

There will be a Prologue where you get to know how the colony, sent to Umbra, were welcomed by horror.

that is what we got so far.
Stay tuned.

Ok, so my little break has given me time to learn a few new tricks with hammertool and modeling (still working on that), so I decided to resume the development of TTH.
BUT, its not going to be my top priority, I have other projects that need to be finished before this.
And I don't know how many times I have to say this, but I'll keep on saying it; its going to be finished. Even if it takes me over a decade its going to be released, and for free.
If you want to contribute; concept art is mostly what I need at this point.
My idea for the models was that they would change shape depending on its attack or health, but thats next to impossible when you don't have experience in programing.
Again, if you want to help? Concept art go go go.
And if you feel you have other insights that you want to contribute with, go ahead, PM is the thing (pun).

Thank you for your patience.

nuFF3 out.

I was hoping more for a multiplayer: One person is the thing and tries to kill the others. On the base of John Carpenter's movie.
In the game you would be doing sertain tasks depending which person you are. This way some people will be separated and The Thing can strike them.
The take-over will be fast and brutal but yet stealthy and rather quiet.

As of now its the mod is still under development. It might even shift over to the Unreal Engine through UDK. And if so, a multiplayer could be made ;)
But as of now I'm still working with Source SDK.

To tell you the truth I found out that the company who made the original game for The Thing were planing To make The Thing 2, a better game then the first. They were making the game untill the process was stopped when the company got closed at 2004. For ur luck they left us with some realy nice concept art, and I'm you'll be glad to use it:

This is the wiki page, the concept is in the gallery.
