Hello everybody, i'm Robin Molde, but i'm better known as "IZaNaGI" one of the original four devs behind Jailbreak: Source. Today i am proud to finally announce my latest project, Titan: XCIX. A single player mod built on Half-Life 2: Episode 2 that focuses on exploration, and problem solving, rather than shooting hordes of enemy's in the face (Which is fun too ... but you know). But enough with the introduction, let's get straight to the good stuff ...
When an accident rips apart a lone ship on a routine mission, the crew find themselves fighting for survival, and each other in a unique Single Player mod, that's been in the making for the past two years.
Humanity is at the point of extinction when a terrible accident destroys the majority of life on earth, during what is now known as The First Contact Event. Although official contact had been set with very strict Quarantine rules, unsanctioned contact between the Human populace and Vaedran Trade ships meant that diseases that originated from Vaedra were easily passed to the people of Earth, causing a catastrophic chain of events.
The people of Vaedra (a long lost offshoot of Humanity), racked by guilt, gathers up what's left of Human civilisation and over the space of many years, slowly integrates them into their own society, to give them a better life away from the wastes of Earth.
But life is far from better, hospitality soon turns to indifference, and intolerance, eventually pushing Humans to the outskirts of their new home. There only choice is to work in the jobs nobody else wants, where they can be secluded from the masses. Deep space mining, and working among the Vaedran shipping lanes between the colonies forms the basis of the United Human Remnant (UHR), a group that gives homes to Humans, and Vaedrans alike, among the stars.
Among these "homes" is Titan: XCIX, a previously decommissioned trade ship, donated to the UHR for the purpose of allowing Humanity to sustain its own trade route. Work aboard Titan is slow, cramped, and often dangerous, but the allowed independence more than makes up for the conditions aboard the ship.
But even on the fringe of space, bad blood boils ...
The reason for the reveal now, is because Part One (Of two parts) of the mod has recently reached beta testing, and is almost ready for release ... except for one more planned feature, Voice Acting. So if you're a talented Voice Actor (that's willing to work for free) in the community, and want to help me complete this project, make sure to get in touch with me. There are over twenty roles to be filled from single lines, to full blown parts. Please be aware though, that these are mature roles, and that previous experience is a must.
Update: Most of the bigger roles have now been filled (with only small roles still vacant), but i'm still in need of a female lead. So if your female, and you want to be part of the voice cast, please get in touch!
So there you have it, a huge thanks for taking the time to read this epic wall of text, and watch out for more news in the coming months. Don't forget to hit the track button, and if you are interested i also have a twitter account that i often use to post up to date info on the mods progress (as well as other random junk).
