Problem after problem, Crimson Crow finally hit it's end.

Posted by on

Development the last few months has been a weird ride.

A massively glaring problem was with the engine. As everyone knows, Torque Advanced was abandoned in favor of T3D. Which is great if you could afford it, but without a lot of extra time and money, switching to T3D or any other engine for that matter was difficult.

With new jobs and people becoming very busy or unmotivated, and a lot of other odd circumstances, it was the right time to move on.

While Crimson Crow is extremely close to a release, it is still a very long way away from ultimately being what it was intended to be. If this happened oh say a year ago when motivation was a little better and the engine was in better condition, things may have gone much better.

In retrospect, we all put a lot of hard effort and time into Crimson Crow, but it was by no means in vain.

I personally have learned so much from this project. Enough that when or if I start another project, I will never undoubtedly run into the same careless mishaps. I also feel that Crimson Crow is a chapter that will one day be re-opened in time.

I'm sure all of our watchers will be greatly disappointed, but you'll just have to keep watch and wait to see what happens!

Youknow what, I loved how this was going, and the attention you sunk into both the community (as small as it seems to have been) as well as the project itself, was and is astounding, I think I'll track the studio you've made just to keep an eye out for your future projects!

I'm really sad about it. you guys could try to put Crimson Crow as a mod for a game like Crysis or Battlefield, or, COD, I don't know!

I'm wathing this MOD since when had some videos from you guys doing the movements (really it was funny). So I think was really a lot of time, and, good luck for you guys, but think about what I've said.

Hug!
