The future of Northfall
It's been a while since anything was updated here. I have some very exciting and important news to share with you.
Northfall as you know it has come to an end. This is not a bad thing because the project has been re-imagined with the powerful Unreal Engine 4. This means that Northfall does no longer exist, however, a new project, inspired by the main idea of Northfall has been developed. According to me, that project is much better than Northfall ever was. We are able to do so much more with the tools that UE4 provides us with.
We proudly present to you. The Facility.
The Facility is a next generation horror game developed in Unreal Engine 4. The project aims to deliver a solid horror experience.
In the remote mountains of southern Germany. During World War II a hidden underground bunker was built by the nazis to secretly perform horrible experiments on human beings. The bunker has remained a secret... Until now.
This games takes you to yet another abandoned nazi bunker with a more solid storyline and more realistic graphical style. Immersion taken to the next level with Oculus Rift support.
Why did we do this?
The reason to why we canceled Northfall and moved on to The Facility is that the Unreal Engine 4 got released. First we were going to keep developing Northfall until it was finished, but that quickly changed. After learning of the features of UE4. We quickly decided that making the game in UE4 would be a much better choice. We also felt that Northfall wasn't exactly the game we wanted to create. It had the right atmosphere and setting but it didn't quite feel right, so we went back to the drawing board. Staying with the ideas that we liked and improved what we did not like.
Please check out the new game. If you enjoyed Northfall. Then you will most certainly enjoy The Facility.
