Ingame Video Coming Soon
What everyone has been waiting for...
Since SHIFT's inception, the hardest part about modding has been convincing the community that SHIFT was legit. This was primarily due to the secrecy and lack of information regarding how SHIFT would be implemented. MANY people in the community are strong skeptics and with good reason. No good racing mod has arrived for Half-Life2 and they want to know if SHIFT will really change all that.
Over the past weeks, the team has been working endlessly on SHIFT in order to get the alpha up to speed. The reason being is to get the build ready to showcase it to an interested signed musician in October. So far, we have exceeded our own expectations.
What I can assume will be previewed in the video will be the working HUD, custom vehicle, custom physics, preview of the work in progress race track, menu, and possibly a first look at the singleplayer AI; and maybe a few surprises.
While there are no clear-cut gaurentees, I can tell you that we are working on an In-Game video to show to the public. Upon release of this video, we hope to convert many of the skeptics into full-faith believers; Whether you like racing games or not, SHIFT will still be an impressive total conversion.
Stay tuned and we won't disappoint. ;)
Exclusive Music Partnership:
Through SHIFT's development, I have struggled to find a musician to feature and brandish as the main "Soundtrack" of the game. Through some prior connections in the music and studio world, I contacted a talented selfmade producer who is excited to compose the entire action portion of the games soundtrack. He goes by the alias Fatwerks and leads his own band named Aftercoma. He has also composed his own solo pieces in the past.
This music will be what plays during races (but can also be turned off at users will). It will consist of primarily hard rock/metal (without any vocals). The sound quality is top notch and the hard edgy style fits what SHIFT has been looking for in a custom soundtrack.
Listen below for the song that will go to our 2009 trailer!
