What we've been up to, and a quick note on the video and some confusion over it.
Posted by Donkey81 on Feb 10th, 2009
We've had a few messages and comments relating to "disappointment with the way the game starts." I believe this may have stemmed from a feature on Podcast 17, in which the presenters talked about the gameplay video we recently posted. In the feature, the presenters mistakenly claimed that the footage was of the first few minutes of the mod. In fact, it showcases a small area around 15-20 minutes in - so, near the start, rather than right at it.
We thank Podcast 17 unreservedly for featuring Neptune on their show, and mean this as no complaint to what they said. We merely wish to clarify the issue so as to avoid confusion, and assure readers that one of our brilliant level designers is currently staging an elaborate introductory sequence that explains the set-up far more clearly than this dark section in the bowels of the ship ever could.
Elsewhere, we're making steady progress with the mod. No new media to show, but we're currently hard at work on modelling, skinning and animating the game's new weapons, developing a new HUD, and - of course - cracking on with the level design. Keep your eyes peeled - we'll no doubt have more to show off soon...
