Finally an Update!
During the course of our silence on ModDB, a number of things have been going on. It's time to finally tell the community what has been going on behind the scenes.
First, our sound and music guy AwT-Acid has started his own project (yet to be announced). This project is a collaborative project, but run by his own team. What that means is its still his project, but its going to be under our new team name "Radiation", and hes going to be allowed to use some of the content from Infection. Nothing is going to change on Infection's end.
So what has the Infection team been doing?
Well, for one there's a whole new game-mode that's already in a working state and almost totally playable. The mode is called Genocide, it's kind of like a King of the Hill game type with two teams, but also kind of not. In this mode there are two teams, Red and Blue. Each team is trying to keep their team in a building deemed the safe spot. On the corner of every players screen there are two timers, one for each team. While one team is in the building (or safe spot depending on the map) their timer is increasing, but if an opposing team member is also in the building both timers stop. Once the combined times of each team adds up to ten minutes, the team with the most time wins. During this game mode it's easy for players to go hide and have the timers not move, and that's where the zombies come in, hiding and probably cornering yourself is probably not a great idea when there are zombies larking around, they will most likely kill you or give your position away.
Now at the same time that we are developing the Genocide game mode, we are working on the in-game stats and an XP system. Each of those will not have a major impact on game-play because we don't want to turn this into call of duty. But obviously your going to be able to show off your ranks and also have some cosmetic stuff in-game. We haven't fully decided what those will be.
Some people have been asking about a beta. Well the game isn't even considered beta yet, but we are almost there! We have been thinking, and when the genocide game mode is finished, we will probably do some kind of multiplayer only public beta during the summer. It would be a great way for us to find flaws, bugs, things that need to be added, server problems, ect. So yes, you will probably get to play it sometime soon.
Sorry no images this time, there will be soon!
Please leave any suggestions you may have in the comments, we love reading them!
