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?

I'm sorry to hear about your daughter. I hope she will grow up to like/love video games and use them as an added way to express herself.

First off, I'm sorry to hear about your daughter, but I hope she will have A brighter future. You seem to be A good father, and I respect you for that.

Now the mod, even though the progress is very very slow, But its still progressing, and I can see why it takes A while. the fact that the ingame screenshot is amazing, shows the reason of how slow the progress is, looking from at those promising screenshot of ingame, makes me want to play this beatiful mod, hopefully, the mod is still progressing.
closer or not to its release, I will wait.

Andy Morris, I just have to say that you are A man with skills and A good father

Many thanks for your kind words. Remember that Archie has also put in considerable amounts of work despite his own responsibilities as well. It goes without saying the The Core probably wouldn't have come this far without his friendship and moral support. :D

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...

When one of your testers says, "Sooo, you're basically almost done." And you respond, "Man, I guess we are..." That's terribly exciting.
