To all the Solitude and Halo fans:
This is IlDucci speaking in behalf of what's left of the Solitude team. The team is sorry for the promises of updating the news that we were not capable to make, but we had some bigger issues. Part of our crew is gone, a bunch of kids are trying to steal the Solitude files and we're half a year behind schedule. But we are still here. We are a smaller team now, but we want to keep working on this project until we finish it or until Microsoft and only Microsoft stops us, nobody else. Now that's over with, lets get to the actual update.
So, we have some screenshots from the new maps the team has been making on:
Our music guy Nutritious did some voice acting for us, say hi to the new Solitude multiplayer announcer!
We've been improving our current content, we now have Oddball and CTF coded in and we are doing our best to make it work bugless. We also have added Ladder support to the engine, which will be shown in a future update.
Even if the team is now smaller in numbers, we think that we can pull out a multiplayer beta just in time for Christmas. But there's a catch: we need some extra manpower to finish up the work.
We need texture artists that are capable of making tiling map textures as well as working on UVs. We also need 3D animators who can bring characters of all shapes and sized to life.
If you want to be part of the team, please show us your portfolio at Flamingiceteam@googlemail.com, or visit our forums and then we will contact you with more info. We don't want any kids nor people who think that they can learn Photoshop in a few weeks in order to do pro stuff. We're looking for experience!
So, after keeping the game alive, we will try to get the wheel rolling and deliver what we promised you, our audience, half a year ago.
That's all we have to show you, or rather wanted to show you. Expect a new update in November, we will be trying to get back into a schedule for our updates. Thank you for all the patience you have showed us.
If you have any questions about Solitude or want to talk to any of the developers join us on IRC: irc.EnterTheGame.com, #Solitude channel.
If you like what you see, we encourage you to Track the Mod to be updated on future media. See ya!
