Welcome to yet another Slender: Source weekly update! We've got a ton of things to cover this week, and I'm really excited to let everyone know about this one because honestly, I think we're all excited here at Ethereal Entertainment.
First off, I'd like to introduce these people to the development team. Without them this mod wouldn't of been getting more content pumped out, and the development would either grind to a halt, or just become incredibly slow. So, join me in welcoming these wonderful people to the development team.
We're no longer hiring at the current point in time, and we're also not accepting beta applications either. We'll release news about tester applications shortly, and once we have a stable version of the mod ready to go. So, first up we've got some stuff to show you.
Here we have a screenshot from the first map of the game 'SS_Forest' in which the players are thrown into a giant, spooky forest set somewhere in the country-side. It's gonna be spooky, and we're going to be playing around a lot with the environment via fog, trees, and sound effects. We hope you like the finished result, and here's an early image of that map. The forest map is being designed by WitheredGryphon.
Besides the map screenshot, we also have some images from our decal artist concerning some of the stuff you'll see lying around the map in terms of diary pages, and random notes. Some examples can be seen below.
Is that it? Nope, not even close. We even have some musical pieces/ sound effects from our sound guys. Some of you thought that the main theme wasn't spooky enough. So our Composer, Rytuklis took it upon himself to make this piece of music. I really like it, since it reminds me of some sort of classic horror film. Just can't quite put my finger on it. Enjoy.
Not mention we also have this eerie piece from our Atmospheric Composer/Sound Effects guy, RPTheHotRod. Sadly, I couldn't get the link working so I had to upload it to my Soundcloud.
We've got a variety of updates we'd like to share with you all. Please take your time and take a look :).
