The String - 7 Years!



Hello everyone!

We've been getting a lot of questions recently and through the years so I wanted to address them here now.

Thanks for playing and sharing feedback, we do read them.
The String is now 7 years old and 3 months since release, time flies..

In hindsight I see not adding subtitles would become an issue for many, this is something I wanted to patch in but I ran into problems in implementing this and requiring more time thus aborted.

The focus was the art and design first, mainly to learn the tools, as we got further in we saw some potential for releasing this... and that is when it took on the form of becoming a mod. With that came a lot of extra work. A story had to be written that followed the levels we had close to completion. Hynik was working on a simple, but hopefully effective story to serve as the backdrop. The main thrill was always going to be the moment to moment gameplay, spooks and overall atmosphere.

Yet numerous dialogue and flashback sequences had to be recorded and placed. Looking back at the story, although simple, appears rather cryptic at times, yet a lot of you seemed to be able to follow it to its conclusion.

A lot of you have been asking for more stuff from us, and unfortuntely life has just been getting in the way. There might be more one day as the passion for modding and gaming is still there. When we do you can expect more bone chilling horror!

If you have any questions you want to ask us, leave a reply and we'll try to answer.

Again, thanks for playing and sharing feedback!

Best Regards,

Hauken and Hynik.

Looking at the art above made my day. It was ~5 years ago or so when I played this and I STILL remember the scene with the waterfall and door on the left. :D

I just hope I remember correctly here...

Outstanding art by the way. :)
