Undying Update; "New World" Clue
9:01 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Mark Adams of Westlake Interactive recently gave an update on Usenet about the thriller FPS (first-person shooter) Undying. He has noted in the past that the complex skeletal animation system implemented in the game has proven to be quite a challenge in getting the game ported to the Mac. And while Mark was previously hoping to be able to focus on the title for the rest of the year, it looks like the secret "New World" project is now taking up some of his time as well:
It's still slow going, and we're having to shuffle things a bit to work This seems to imply that the New World project is a game based on the Unreal Tournament engine. While many may be tempted to guess the well-known UT engine games Unreal 2 or Duke Nukem Forever, we suspect Westlake may have a surprise up their sleeve.
on "New World." The good news is a lot of the work on UT X and another
project are directly applicable to Undying, so it's not like it isn't
making any progress.
For the latest on both New World and Undying, be sure to stay tuned to IMG. We still hope to see Undying before the end of the year from Aspyr, though no official release date is ever as solid as gamers would like.
Update: A forum thread has already been started with this same thought about Mark's post. Head over there to join in the discussion.
