"Take a look around you at the world we've come to know,

Does it seem to be much more than a crazy circus show?

But maybe from the madness something beautiful will grow,

In a brave new world,

With just a handful of men.

We'll start, we'll start all over again"


Early June 1888 -

Those dreadful pods landed on our island.

From that point on, our world, the course of human history, would be radically altered forever.

With our backs against the wall we had no choice but to change our plans and grudgingly admit that we, former masters of this planet Earth, had been replaced by a more dominant form of life.

With that realization we went down, deep into the Earth's crust, separating ourselves from the world above.

June 1928-

The horrors of the surface seem so distant now, but we all remember. It is a new world, a quiet and disciplined existence free of catastrophe but lacking in the carefree flow of lives we enjoyed in our youth.

Our children today have never known a blue sky or a sunset, nor the song of bird, the smell of fresh rain...

But the world awaits our return... And someday there will at last be a reckoning.

We have a plan.


War of the Worlds: Earth Under the Martians is an open world survival horror game in the very early stages of production.

Recruiting Underway

4 years ago News 5 comments

Hello guys,

As our team grows and discussion of development continues more and more, questions arise. Even though we have not hit the full on development stage, we still need to be able to plan out certain aspects of the game.

We are looking for new people to join the mod team who are willing to discuss the early game mechanics and help us finish the rest of the design process.

We need mostly, at this point, a sound engineer. Our Musical Composer, Anton Riehl, and I have been arranging our ideas and concerns about the implementation of music and dynamic ambiance into the Unreal 3 engine. Certain questions arose that would need to be addressed by a sound engineer in order to utilize both the music and overall design of the project.

If anyone is interested in helping with this blueprint we would be more than happy to have you on with us.

We are also looking for people experienced in:

- Programming (Preference for UT3 Experience)

- 3d Modeling/Animation

- Level/Map Design

- Texture Art

- Concept Art

These people will be key in planning out the early phases of development as well as in putting together the actual game.

A lot of people seem to be split between two temporal ideas. We have the book fans on one side and then those that want to see a more original setting...

I would love to see this completed but why not just base it off the jeff wyane one it has the music and good art.

Saturating the idea a bit with a decision like that.
The novel holds material that better serves for a game.
Either way, this mod likely wont be made.

I'd hate to think that this mod has finally breathed its last. It holds so much potential.

Is the mod dead ? Oh gosh :( just when I really get into Mech and Tripods... Kind of Sick of Hawken and MWO which are really expensive in the long run unless you play 10 hours per day for the next 5 years !
I guess the entire UT3 modding community is kinda dead... It never really started IMHO, except some stuff here and there, when I bought it I had hoped to see as much activity as ut2004 (where community is still trying to develop stuff, really impressive).
Anyway, it will maybe be for a UT4 for one day !

But I'm getting out of the subject, I hope you guys think about working on the mod again and finishing it ! It would be sooo cool :)

Curious to know about the gameplay for this mod. Will it be linear in level design or a bit more free roaming? Just eager to see this actually get into level development :)

Free roam for sure. Think Day Z with Tripods, but more unpredictable and dynamic.

Just another follower saying "I hope something great comes of this!"

As long as you have some true-to-the-era British content I will be pleased!
