More than a year ago we set out to release the final patch for our beloved child, Missing Information. However that’s still waiting to happen! As leader I could have handled the situation better and set a deadline long ago, but as we worked on our patch we pretty soon realized that it was going to break the original scope. Last December, our three programmers made the final push towards getting animations from the old engine working on the current engine – and with success! This happened two days before our planned release of our 1.5.2 patch which of course had to be delayed so that certain animations could be implemented. We are at last reaching the point where some team members are starting to join Club Zero.
Once the new version of Missing Information is done we will distribute it to a few of our testers so they can help us find any remaining bugs. We currently have an internal release date which we are aiming for. In the meantime we are fixing as many bugs as possible and also finishing our improvements to parts of the mod we weren’t entirely satisfied with in the 1.5 release.
Since we started working on our last update a lot has happened in terms of Steam and the Source engine. Valve made Half-Life 2 and several other games available to Mac users. We would like to do the same, except that Valve hasn’t released the source code that will make this possible. We have previously said that this next update would be our last and that we would then focus would be on Missing Information: Episode One. However it is very likely that we will do an update that will add support for the Mac platform.
As some of you might have noticed we finally have a media section available. We will make sure once we release any media it will be published there first! We would like to thank our host slkandy for the code that made the media page possible and easy to maintain. Furthermore, we have updated our team page with several new changes. A lot of our old members have left the team for other projects. We have two new members: James Miller from Australia and Spartan117ak from Canada. This makes our team four people from America, two from Canada, two from Australia and one from Denmark.
Unfortunately, we do not have anything new to show off at this time. We felt it was about time we let the rest of the world know about our plans – well, some of them.
