Time marches on and The Core ModDB remains largely stagnant. Away from the mod, it's already a big year. First, family affairs. If this is of no interest to you, skip to paragraph 3.

WHAT'S THE HOLD UP!?

My son is a year old and starting to take his first steps, my daughter is four and will be starting school in the coming months. I'm excited, but apprehensive. On top of this significant stepping stone, she has also been officially diagnosed with a receptive/expressive language disorder. Long story short, she doesn't speak and cannot understand when she's being spoken to. It's a lot of hard work on a daily basis. This will make school life difficult to put it lightly.

THE CORE!

However, you're here to find out about the mod. Well, following a recent discussion (literally within the last 24 hours) Archie and I have decided that it is time to get more people playing The Core. Files have been prepped and compressed and we have discussed the details with a number of people closely related to the project. This weekend, during the Easter break, we are officially entering Closed Alpha!

Fan Art

There is still work to be done. A lot of the story and dialogue only exists on paper (or in a document more specifically) but we will also be starting significant recording sessions in the coming days as well in order to nail down the major plot points of the mod.

So that's the state of things. It won't be long before people besides the development team will be playing through the majority of the mod. Much like with family developments, I am excited but apprehensive.

But always looking to the future, to the conclusion of The Core's development and moving on to other things that have put aside many moons ago. :D

Until next time,
Urby

One thing that I simply cannot deny with regards to The Core's development is that it has been chock full of mistakes. Game mechanics have been pitched...

Where is The Core? Why are we not pushing for the upcoming MOTY award as normal?

And this mod will have an Steam and WON version?

I can't say for certain about WON, but it will be compatible with Steam HL and it appears to work with Xash3D for what it's worth...

Aww, when I saw the date of this update I thought "Yes, they finally released it, cancel all other games, let's dl and play this!".

Alas, it's just an update, but I'm glad you guys are still alive and well and working on this. Rest assured I will be ready for the lore no matter the format you give it to us in. I won't rush through, I will read every post it and every clipboard in every corner, in every room etc :D

Remember to have fun making this gorgeous mod <3

I only heard about this recently on OCUK. That video (the trailer you have on YouTube) is amazing, it looks class.

Looking forward to The Core. :)

Thanks for the comment. :D

That trailer is pretty out of date compared to what we have in the mod now, but hopefully the end result will be worth the wait.
