pencil THE RETURN OF BAR-B-Q!

bullet_none posted 7 days ago
Hallo for another week!

As promised I am coming to you from the FrozenSand studios for another installment of 'News from Ohjay'!

Wait a second... did we really just call it that?

Apologies... the people responsible for coming up with that name have been sacked. We'll try for a new one next week. :S

Did everyone get the news this week? UrT5 private alpha will be out this year! HOLY MOLY. I was playing it the other day and it is coming along nicely. Real nicely.

I am also happy to announce the return of Bar-B-Q. He is back to reprise his role as the male voice of Urban Terror! He is the voice you hear when you call for a medic, flag exits, and lets you know "you're an idiot!".

When you see him let him know how happy you are that he's not as 'DEAD AS FRIED CHICKEN BABY'!

If you don't understand the reference get into the radio calls for a night and have a laugh. We used to have configs that would transform our keyboards into a bunch of shortcuts for radio call frenzies! Get amongst it!

As for game news - we have been fixing a lot of animations this past few weeks. Did you ever think about how the model moves when you input commands? Our Project Coordinator INVIS said it very well when talking about matching the movement of the character to how the animation works, "imagine the player is a capsule, we just move it around as we need to, and try to make the puppet in the capsule match the movement".

There really is so much that goes on behind the scenes that you would never even think about, so I'm going to highlight much of this stuff for no other reason than it's interesting as heck.

Anyway this is just about enough writing again. I am leaving you with an image from one of our resident artists - Walker. This is his impression of what Turnpike could look like. Obviously it's not a copy straight out of the map, but more what the scenery and background could look like. What do you think?

Drop me an email as always, or come have a chat with us on Discord!

Ciao!

Hi guys!

I am writing to you from the FrozenSand studios down under in Australia, as the newest member of the team. Thanks for having me guys!

So while we wait for the guys to finish up the game...wait, I wonder if I'm allowed to say that...

Let's start again...

The team is nearly finished the game so while they do that I will be....Ahem...(nervous cough)

Anyway look, let's not focus on who said what ok...

I'll make you a deal. If you don't tell the big bosses that I let slip they are NEARLY FINISHED the private alpha then I'll start writing regular updates on our website and give you all the goss and nitty-grittys on everything Urban Terror. Once a week to start I think. We'll focus on members of our team and what they are up to, address commonly asked questions from you guys, or maybe just a topic of my choosing - you never know what surprises are just around the corner!

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any comments, questions or...ahem..complaints. I really don't want to hear the complaints but ok sure...let's address them too. I will add my email down the bottom, or feel free to comment where comments can be found.

I could rant however I know these are the days of short lunch breaks and limited attention spans so I'll keep it quick. You'll be hearing from me more often as we progress into the latter part of the year and head towards some exciting things.

Check out the pic below. Can you guess the map? Guess correctly and I might show you the new version if you're lucky!

Watch this space!
