So I've received a fair amount of pretty understandable skepticism about my release date of May 1st. Let me clarify what I mean by "release date." This game is sort of like my undergrad equivalent of a thesis, if I don't have SOMETHING playable by May1st I won't graduate. That's not to say that the entire game will be done by the 1st; I don't think I'll ever consider waterbridge to be "done." I would just like to have at least 1 level that is fully playable done by the first.
Speaking of which, I should mention that I plan on releasing this total conversion episodically. My first goal it to make a waterbridge "game mode" for UT3 which will only be able to play on waterbridge-type maps. The maps I release for this mod can be played in any order, but they do have an intended order. I'm working from the example of the fantastic flash-based adventure game MOTAS
