Wow, extremely impressive, already better than Gothic 3 :P

My only 2 concerns:
- movement of the main character seems to be a bit too fast, at least the running
- sound became louder in the dialogue with the mage in the woods

Other than that great news. Will definately try it.

Try making the wolfs cry out a little less frequently : ) In that way they will seem more frightening.

Multiple idle animations were created, unfortunately due to the source engine being created for a first person game we have some issues getting certain animations working with the player character in our limited time frame. In the case of idle animations if more then one was added the player started twitching in a very odd way. This resulted in the more animated idle animations being cut. Also the task of animating all monsters and characters was my responsibility, and it was the first time I had attempted any animation. Hope it’s not too obvious.

Hi, amazing work thus far.
Minor crits;

Im not extremely fond of how the camera reacts to movement. Seems very... Sensitive? Also, animations could use more work, and the character runs way to fast. Some of the sounds could use some tweaking (footsteps sound to heavy or solid and in need of something a bit more subtle). Sorry to nitpick, but that pretty much covers it from what we saw in the vid.

However, the game does seem very intriguing. Overall good voice acting and interesting story thus far. Seems like it'll definitely keep players wanting more. Has a Gothic feeling for sure! Keep up the great work, looking forward to more updates!

The running speed is still the original half-life speed. Unfortunately not everything is perfectly tweaked, but that is due to us being limited in time.
