Stolen Mind is a horror mod of Half-Life 2 : Episode 2, consisting of a custom horror story separate from Half-Life.
Hello, it's Toash.
It's been a long time since I updated everybody on anything related to this mod; except for close friends. I want to stop the silence and talk a little bit about how much work has been done recently (or the lack thereof) and the lack of a demo releasing.
So, where'd that demo go huh? It's not releasing. Plain and simple. Too much of my limited time was going into trying to make a good demo for everyone and I realized that a demo doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. However, we are still working; just on a release. I'm not talking about a full mod releasing however, as through discussion we came to the conclusion to release this mod in chapters, to give us more time to work. As I had taken a small break from modding, and the rest of the team basically went onto other things for the time I was gone, there was barely anything done. Since my break is done, progress on the mod should hopefully speed up more than it was, and you'll all get the first chapter of the mod within this year. This is not a promise though.
The story, through my break did get worked on though. As my break was more related to my growing hatred of modding tools than writing, in the break I did rewrite the first cutscene of the story, consulting other writers for tips to make sure my writing was up to standard. I will share with you, a snippit of the story below, as it is the first cutscene.
There is more writing than this, but to avoid spoilers this is all I will show. See you, hopefully soon.
Merry christmas! Demo is nearing completion and should be out before years end.
