I took a break for a while to settle down from the madness that was my trip, but now I'm back to use this Blog as a platform for my next endeavor- A UT3 mod. I hope just as many people that were interested seeing pictures from a land far away are interested in reading about a group of 7 guys making a UT3 mod for class in 10 weeks.
To boot, the idea for this game comes from my friend Dan, who recently thought it would be fun to take a game like Cookie and Cream which is very much a puzzle game, and make it into a destructive 2-D foot-racing shooter.
It's a 1 on 1 duel, where players race to the end of a long winding, trap filled track to the flag, only to have to bring it back up the same trap infested road. The gimmick is that at several points on the map, players will have a choice- A. Make a mad dash for the flag, or B. Use one of the many conveniently placed interactive environmental pieces to blast my opponent to bits.
My friend Theplanman told me that the end of Braid had a similar mechanic, so I'll have to look into that.
