This was never going to change, and it can't due to the CC license we use.

Great! I also assume that TDM will be continue to be released as a non Steam version as well?

Just wondering but... would it be possible to implement some Steam achievements? I could actually think of a few potential cool achievements (like... first "ghosted" mission, first mission without having killed anyone, first mission with maximum loot, complete 10 missions, play 100 hours, stuff like that. I think the motivation of achieving such... achievements is not to be neglected. I know people who played GTA 5 for hundred hours plus, just to reach a 100% in achievements). No idea how easy/difficult that would be to code though, of course.

@Destined, as I type young Goldwell is knocking up a better Trailer that will better convey what we and the mod are about. I have removed the original trailer that was up on the GL page.

Its a WIP shot from a mission that Springheel and I are working on, in fact there are few WIP shots up there. I wanted to show what the mod is currently capable of, best foot forward etc.

And, since it's probably not possible to get an achievement for releasing a mission, you could at least get something for spending many hours in DR ;)

Our Stats are progressing nicely -

  • 1110 unique visitors in 15 hours - need to compare this to other GL games to get some kind of context
  • 473 yes votes - see above
  • 35% of the way to the top 100 - Im not sure is that means once we get to 100 we then feature in Steam's Top 100 games..?

Hehe, damn straight... I can't speak for other but I would guess I have easily spent 500+ hrs in the last 12mnths.

On a Steam realated note, I have been getting a few invites on the Steam page from 'advertising' user/agents -  I guess I should ignore these, as they look fishy -

Congrats on being on greenlight even if you guys don't pass, being there just granted some new publicity for the game.

What are the requirements to pass? It would be just silly if TDM wouldn't pass really. I know some games which are utter crap which passed Greenlight.

I am wondering how I/we will upload new missions, Im guessing either as (free) DLC or Updates. I think the DLC option sounds closer to the mechanism that we have atm?

 

I hope you don't mind that I used your trailer vid, that said clearly some people didn't get the obvious use of humor at the beginning of the vid though...

 

Steam workshop sounds ideal for this.  People can subscribe to free workshop items, which can be anything from mods to maps to ingame items or anything else.  Anyone can submit workshop content.. so it would ease the burden on maintainers of the Steam release and let users access content faster.

 

See here for an example https://steamcommuni...46110/workshop/

 

Official content could be released as DLC if it's significant enough

The music and the pacing, fitting the gameplay footage was great in this one: 


 "I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

For fuck's sake, we're not seriously considering adding a video from 2005, that still has the Doom 3 hands in it??

Good lord I hope not haha, I certainly wouldn't add it.  Nice trip down memory lane though.  Pacing and music was nice for the time.

I agree that it's a poor showing compared to now. That said, we could probably post a video of an elderly alcoholic vagrant defecating on a sidewalk

with the rate we are approaching Greenlight approval now.
