It’s been a long 3 months since the last update – the team went undercover, working hard on the mod. We showed the project to our professors and to the public last week, and I think we will have a good final score ;) Last week everyone could play Troy: Divine Playground in a small LAN at the university’s public place, and the feedback was all incredibly positive.
Here’s your update for Christmas – a 7 minutes trailer composed exclusively of video captures taken by Gus playing the mod alone. The mod is still a multiplayer mod – it is just not shown in the video. Playing it alone is surprisingly quite satisfying, even when you’re killing your own soldiers like Gus is doing in this little video.
The mod is at an advanced stage – we played (Hrm, playtested) the thing for a whole day and were still having loads of fun with it just before stopping. We got a sad announcement to make today though – T:DP will NOT be released in December, as we first said when we announced the project one year ago. The game is coded, but it needs some refinements visually and it needs to be playtested by a bigger team, so that we can tweak the gameplay accordingly.
So what will we do in the future? The core team members are all starting full-time jobs in the game industry, so that we will need to restructure the team a bit. I can’t give any release date yet, but I can assure you that we will do all we can to bring this mod to you guys as soon as we can.
Hope you like the trailer!
