  1. Probably not. There's only one that I know of, that's planned to be a standalone release. Other than that, who knows.
  2. I hope you're wrong too. They need to leave in some unpolished stuff, a few bugs here and there. Is a stalker game without jank really a stalker game?
  3. Come on, people, give me your likes!
  4. 2-3 weeks in advance with some consistent media leading up to release would probably be best. It gives people time to prepare for it if they want to dedicate the time and you can build up a bit of hype. One thing I hate about most ad campaigns for games is they announce too early, usually 6-8 months before release and by the time it comes out I'm over it. My hype that they built is gone.
  5. It's called ILL and is probably the closest thing we'll ever get.
  6. I have returned with some updated San Juan
  7. Finally went to see Dune at the cinema. I might go see it a second time.

    Goals for 2022?

    You forgot to add the obligatory goals music theme:
  9. All aboard the NFT train https://www.theverge.com/2021/12/15/22834567/stalker-2-nfts-metahuman-dmarket
  10. Nope, it was directly inspired by the valve in Valve's offices. The level's name is Gordon and the Steam Machine. You can make of that what you will
  11. Did a small level for HL2 over the past 5 days. Just a quick exercise where I played with some stealth mechanics. Not inspired by Dishonored at all.
  12. John Wick meets Constantine "We have now announced Alan Wake 2. This is a monumental moment for us at Remedy. For me personally. Leading up to the announcement, our internal codename for the sequel has been Project Big Fish. David Lynch has said: “Ideas are like fish. If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you’ve got to go deeper.” Alan Wake 2 is our big fish. We are diving deeper than ever, into an ocean of darkness. Whereas the first Alan Wake had horror elements in it, it was an action game. Alan Wake 2 is Remedy’s first survival horror game. Our take on the genre. Our opportunity to truly connect the gameplay and the story. It is a deep, layered mystery. So, Alan Wake 2 confirmed and coming in 2023 presented by Epic Games Publishing. Thank you, our long-standing fans, this is what you have been waiting for, and welcome to those who are just discovering Alan Wake’s story."
  13. We've had a few people from this forum enter the industry in their 30s, so don't let that stop you. As HP suggested, you should make something and learn as you go. I would recommend CS:GO SDK and Far Cry 5 Arcade Editor, because those tools have actual games that you can design levels for. The downside to making something in Unity or UE4 is that there isn't anything to work with. You can find asset packs, sure, but it's just hard to demonstrate how the levels function without a proper game to go with it. You'd have to team up with a few other people in order to create something presentable. One important note to make on this, don't make something overly complicated. Pick projects that you can finish in 2-3 weeks or a month at best. For example, if you're thinking about creating a 5v5 map or a 2v2 one, pick the latter. This way you can focus on quality over quantity and, most importantly, actually ship the thing. You don't have many choices, so just pick what's available. See the previous answer Check out Steve Lee's videos on the topic: EDIT* Forgot to mention, aim for 2-3 pieces for your portfolio. You don't need THAT many, just a few quality levels to demonstrate some things. The rest comes down to persistence, applying for jobs and very importantly - talking to people.
  14. Every now and then I'm reminded that a half-life game came out last year. Cool story.
  15. Looking at the number of reviews and steam spy stats, the game sold almost 500k units on Steam alone. No idea about PS4, but if it's like every other triple A release, most likely from identical to double the numbers on PC. So the game has probably sold a little over 1m copies already.
  16. I am bringing out the champagne, the real expensive one!
