Is this Daedalus's Rage Against the Machine he was working on a few years ago?

Yes. Episode 1 anyways.

I'll provide screens shortly.

Not sure what other info I should provide. The general idea was to make a tribute to the original in leveldesign, music composition and animation.

Members:
Daedalus Deathmask, Dimebog and myself.

Any new Blood release is good enough news for me, I'll deffinitely check this out at some point!

Edit: So far so good, nice door sequence during the first map.

Actually, that teaserpic is a photochop of Caleb's hand reaching for RATM's boxset in retail's Cradle to Grave. Thus, it's fake.

It's impossible to code new weapons for Blood, so there's no use in trying. I'm sure we've could've ripped graphics from other games and replaced the sprites, like so many add ons do, but frankly, that's cheap and evil. We like Blood for what it is, and there's no use replacing and fudgeing up the stuff we love. And all other content, art, music and cutscenes, are customly created.

On a related note, it's highly advisable to play this through dosbox. VDMsound (aka the deathmask solution) plays the cutscenes out of sync and can be a bit unpredictable with the new midi's.

Ahh okay I didn't know that since I haven't tried to mod Blood, or any other build game for that matter..

Still have to try out the build games in the new dosbox.. I keep fogetting :doh:

Yesh, it's one of the sad consequences of not having the source code released.

It's still okay, I like Blood's weapons. I hate the engine limitations and ancient software I have to use though. The video format is pure evil. I'd give my left hand for an updated version of Blood's Build.

Yes, us Bloodites mean business.:cool:

Yeah... more members at Transfusion could help. I only check in maybe once or twice a week, traffic there is very low.

Postmortem could also use reinforcements. All BLOOD fans are invited.

I registered over at Transfusion some while ago, but I forgot about postmortem. Might join sometime depending if I have anything to contribute (posting-wise)
