The USSFC is losing hope and losing the war, but the poorly equipped Legion are losing soldiers fast. This is the desperate last struggle of two clashing armies... This is Crimson Crow.

RSS Good news and Bad news

Well we've got good news and bad news. Fortunately for us, it just happens to be on the eve of Mod of the Year..

Posted by on

Lets first begin be explaining the situation. When the entire Crimson Crow project was started, we created a design document describing the features and unique gameplay elements.

Well as months rolled by, that document slowly adapted into what you see today.
Unfortunately, we've recently found many loop-holes in the general design.

So we began re-writing and re-creating many core elements...
Sadly, just recently, a serious virus struck the latest build. With the backed-up build released a few months ago, the virus seeming un-stoppable after hours of constant scans... I've quickly realized I've found myself in a troubled spot.

I had a few obvious choices in this scenario. Seeing as how the latest build was hit right before our heavy re-write, I've finally decided on catching up with a new design document in coming weeks.

Depending on the severity of the situation, it could take a little bit of time. Sadly, with MOTY 'right' around the corner, I regret to inform everyone we will not have any major updates in time for the voting.

I can say, however, in a few weeks we will be back on track with a more thought out design document.

Truly am sorry about this whole ordeal, but the way I figured it, I felt it was better to let everyone know what was up.

At least we have 'some' good news, even if it is minor.

warlord_evil has progressed much on his Warehouse map:

I also managed to model a few weapons. Of course they're still work in progresses, but we're free to adjustments and comments so we can shape them up a bit.

After the recent news, I can't exactly entice you to still check out our profile, but I'll leave a link just in case. :)

Will this be a frantic shooter or a tactical shooter?

We'll be re-thinking many of the core game-play elements. I'm honestly not 100% sure yet.

Ah man unlucky, but I hope the work continues because I'm looking foward to this, but this unfortunate event caused by a virus may have delayed your game for maybe a few months. Damn.
