    Overkill's The Walking Dead

    Switching engines somewhere along the way, I would guess. Scrapped work and hundreds of people that needs training in the new tools.

    [WIP] Roca

    The texture scale should be 0.125 for these. Also try cranking up the ambient lighting, the shadows are looking very dark. Keep it up!

    Hypothetical-Contest Rules Voting

    That’s much better than someone starting with an obvious 6-12 month advantage. That’s not really much of a contest anyway. Most of us won’t be doing this full time, so we’re already behind the curve, though there’s obviously nothing to be done about that, it is what it is.

    Well, I sure don’t have a graybox, and I don’t need to tell anyone here that making one can take a long time unless you skip playtesting entirely. In a contest that spans six months that’s a huge advantage. I would much rather see fresh maps only, and if someone cheats then that’s on their conscience.

    No the previous ruling was very ambiguous, see my reply to Ornatebaboon uo there ^. Some entries had been in production for more than six months last time.

    Disappointed to hear that. Who’s doing the voting? Because seems to me like a majority of people in this thread wants to see fresh maps, for the spirit of competition. Makes me think the agenda here is something different entirely.

    This ruling was terrible in the previous contest. It read: Maps that were under creation prior to the announcement of this Contest can be entered, as long as a complete map version (layout and art) has not been released for public download. If that's not a half measure I don't know what is. Where do you draw the line and how is it fair? It was very sketchy. Imo the obvious answer is to not allow maps (a vmf) that was under construction prior to the contest. You'd have to assume most people will be honest with their submission.

    I like this idea a lot. Contest length could be even shorter and smaller teams won't be so much of an issue. Then again you have the problem of funding for the contest since I'm sure faceit wants polished end products for their service. This doesn't bother me personally as I wouldn't mind a short contest without a cash prize. I think it's an interesting idea worth spinning.

    No half measures this time, please. Let’s keep it simple. VMF’s, even grayboxes should be fresh as of the contest announcement. Everyone can join so long as they’re not a judge. Six months deadline, no delays what so ever.

    New/Old Diablo Game.

    Genuinely curious how Diablo will be retconned since he’s exiled from Sanctuary during the time period of the game.

    Overkill's The Walking Dead

    No doubt about it game comes out tomorrow, but the general interest seem less than mild? Gonna keep my eyes on it for now.

    New/Old Diablo Game.

    It is what it is, and it makes sense from a financial (hesitant to say business..) perspective I suppose. I will ackowledge that there are good mobile games out there, but I don’t have any room for them in my life. They’re for the most part just another distraction, much like social media. Always there when you don’t need them.

    Destiny 2

    Now that the game is free for all battle.net users I’ll give it a go. Hmu if anyone else is starting fresh!

    This was the most brutal review I’ve read: http://gamingtrend.com/feature/previews/the-barely-walking-dead-overkills-the-walking-dead-preview/

    So people over at faceit seem to like the map. I think it’s in a pretty bad spot visually though, and I don’t have the time to do anything about it. If any level artist is looking for a new project to work on, I’ll hand over all the files so you can do your own thing with it. I only ask to be credited for the original design. Let me know in PM if you feel up to the task.
