Must... resist... the box spam...
Since O:BM has been greenlit, no further campaign is necessary to get GD on steam.
The soundtrack is indeed undergoing changes.
Our current main theme will give you a basic idea as to the direction.
I don't plan on doing any remixes for now.
Seems someone beat us to it.
Thanks for your input.
Many of your points sound plausible, and while this has been part of our considerations for a long time, the fact remains that O:BM is beyond a point where a name change would require too much work and re-arrangement, which we cannot possibly afford for the time being.
In short: It is likely not going happen, simply due to organizational reasons.
Fancy a smell?
Only if you believe.
The part about the paid version completely replacing the free one is not true.
It's just meant to be an additional option which the consumer may just as well choose to disregard.
(Slightly edited the article to avoid further confusion.)
That said, these news aren't final and we are leaving this undecided for the moment, deliberately so.
On the subject of money, here is an excerpt of a scrapped news article from last year:
"Our main goal has not shifted. With the way this business model is set up compared to the time we sink into it, our work is still far from paying off financially. We're not required to sell anything in order for this "project" to succeed.
We'd like to become an independent game studio and establish a firm root and reputation within the gaming industry.
All of us still develop this game in our spare time next to college, work, school or other means of being occupied. Think of the paid version as our way of saying thank you for donations.
Note: Nothing would have stopped us from putting a price tag on Operation Black Mesa itself, except for the very promise we gave from the outset that it would be free."
Thanks for your input and I do understand your concerns.
Reading the full article helps.
The latter. :)
"We've chosen to completely retract it until further notice."
This particular deadline has proven itself counterproductive and we intend to steer clear of any further ones for the time being, I'm afraid.
We're always at your disposal if you have any questions. However, media updates are extremely time-consuming and we can't afford to make frequent releases.
The less time we spend on showing, the more we have for the actual development process.
Check the jobs section for available positions.
I plan on extending the track.
This was my very first one and, as a result, somewhat of an experiment.
Thanks for your feedback; it really helps me in finding the right direction.
Spot on! 100 points to you, Sir.
