Dear friends,

first of all, we are terribly sorry for the lack of updates, and we feel that we owe you an explanation. Early in 2012, we had a very promising perspective on getting a "foot in the door" to achieve both funding and technical support for this game. Unfortunately, these plans did not work out, so we found ourselves back to square one and more or less had to start thinking and planning it all over again.

By now, the situation has improved a little, as there are alternative solutions taking shape. In the past months, we have been working on:

- code

- character models

- levels

- props

- animations

- music, and

- sound.

We're also very happy to announce that two new members have joined our team: Jamie Keen, a sound designer from the UK, and Patrick Hödl, a prop/texture artist from Austria.

You can see some of his work above, as he is the creator of the streamline locomotives shown in the newspaper.

For the next weeks, we hope to achieve another set of milestones in the development of Zeitgeist; we can't make any promises, but there is reason to believe that we can finish this project succesfully after all.

Thanks to all of you for your support and patience,

the Zeitgeist staff

Is Zeitgeist novel commercial?

This is just awesome. I can't even imagine how much work in all this.

All of the gold-tinted lighting in the city pictures brings back memories of Deus Ex 3. Hopefully this time, the game will be more free-roam than linear, and have much more replay value.

In fact, most mods that I see around have much more replay value than either their base game counterparts or just games made by the big companies in general (Basically any Activision, EA, Ubisoft, or Square Enix game). Bravo, Northscape studios, for being already having more imagination that these four empty shells of creativity.

for all those wondering what the hell happened to our images, media and backgrounds: our Plesk installation is currently broken. Chris and MoreDread are working on the problem, though, so hopefully soon the backup will run.

Cheers and thanks for your patience,

All the data has been restored again, we're just swell now.

Let's hope it'll stay that way. : )

And yet another update: apparently, our forums and thus the story, architecture, screenshots and game art sub-forums are still offline as well as our other mysql installations. We'll hopefully be able to restore these tomorrow.

Seems like you have a lot of people interested in the game. From the looks of it, serious work has been done. To be honest, I think this is the most polished looking game to date using the Source engine. I think we all wish the best of the creators. Keep it up!

We're working on a first completely playable demo. This demo will be released in 2012, and an educated guess says that it could be out within half a year. We will, however, most likely spend more time on polishing that demo than releasing it "as-is" at any cost.



P.S.: New set of wallpapers available for download exclusively here on ModDB.
