It's been a while since I wrote something here. It's also been a while since I updated 1187 with info. The problem is I have so much I would love to talk about but a lot that I'd say would ruin the mod if I did. But there is a new news post coming up soon.

I've been so busy with the mod that I find hardly any time doing much pr work. The tricky thing with this is the fact that I've shown so much I want to stop. That's why the new update will be mostly about showing updates on what has already been shown before.

One thing I do wanna get off my chest right now is that YES, we're nearing the finish line. The end is in sight. Working on the final maps is fun. Story wise I am not pleased yet. I think many people will not get what's going on in the game's story, but I'm pretty certain that at the end of ep:1, people will get a good base for us to expand the story on in the next eps.

I love how Valve tells their story and I tried my best to go about in a similair way. meaning that yes there is a story, but it's not like it's really that obvious at first. I merely set tons of things in motion without really explaining why, an then later give plausible explanations for past events.

And of course leave a lot open to be explained in the episodes that will come after it. In addition I've created a few bonus maps that do give a itsy bit more insight of what happened or is happening during the main game.

Expect the final game have around 10 story based maps. 2 bonus maps that are linked to the main game. 2 bonus maps that I spiced up from the old demo and a crash course, to talk about the new feats in 1187.

Gameplay wise I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel. I just wanted to learn about gamedeisng and tell a nice small story that could possible fit inside the canon hl2 story arc. I think I've been able to come up with a good plot that covers the whole 3 eps plus smaller side stories. Have some interesting characters and plot twists.

What can I say it's fun. The team is a joy to work with and I am happy to have them with me. Well, that's it for now. I'm going to head back to the mod, and work off some more of my ass.

Yay! And just keep the storytelling the way it is, source has great power in that discipline, I mean ppl who don't really get the story get drawn in by the large explosions and stuff or the dialogues and the small side stories, while Hl nerds like me (;D) may understand everything the happens and ''insert'' it into the canon plot.

Well, hope there's a lot of stuff in ep1 to see ;D
