First biggest announcement is obviously the name change. After consideration we have decided to change the name of the game in it's prototype stage from 300 to the more formidable, Sparta: The Last Stand. This is a dual reason, one is we're scared of Frank Miller, two is the even though the single player is solely Leonidas, the multiplayer is about the war.
Second announcement, a lot of people were bitching about how we didn't have "in-game" graphics last time, well this time almost every picture has its in-game counterpart. Our current characters and environments are under wraps and still works in progress, even though most of these items also are, they are closer to texture ready.
We are dropping two modelers and need replacements along with multiple other people to fill in the help wanted gaps that we have. We need people for ALL positions so feel free to apply if you want to work with a great team making a great game.P.S. More images are being uploaded into the image galary and not in the update, check em out.

I hope you find a better name for your WIP. "The last stand" is true calling, but it's been used for all other kind of games and films, so its nothing like original anymore. Leonidas is the king's name and could be used in the title. Leonidas' Men of War, or sth. I'm not great at inventing titles but the last stand thing just doesn't qualify for a mod which starts out with so much original art and many great models.
Make it big, you will need a very good animator, but Unreal Tournament 3 is the perfect choice for your mod. I'm afraid I lose our entire team to you, if you keep up with the great work.

Lots of respect for your work done already. I wonder how people can be motivated to work on a mod for a game that may not even be released this year. I find it hard to motivate myself on it sometimes...

As far as the name SinKing we have deliberated for a while and come to this, chances are before release it will change but since its just in prototype stages we figured that it's best to just get away from 300 and get a name that envelopes the general idea of the game, which is why we had that. Aeneas, are you talking about the poster? the helm was dramatic light prototype in game.
SinKing as far as motivation, to be honest its all up to the people if they arent motivated they'll get booted from the team but everyone on the team is motivated to make a great product.
