Mod of the Year 2010It's that time of the year again, apparently. The Mod of the Year 2010 competition is upon us!

If you enjoyed dying over and over in Halfquake Sunrise, please spend one minute of your life, check the ModDB Profile and nominate it using the green button under that unnecessarily huge HQS logo (a registered account has a higher impact on votes, just saying).

Then draw an evil smiley on a flag, go outside and spread the word!

If Halfquake Sunrise gets into the Top 100, I'll publish the full HQS file I used to carry around for three years, along with the developer diary.

If you don't care about these things, you can simply have my thanks (but it expires within 20 years or so, you've been warned).

Now that the server is kind enough to stay alive for a little while longer, here's what's new.

I'm on the Cry of Fear team (caution - the website has sound), helping out with music among other things. Cry of Fear is a horror mod for Half-Life, and it's beating the crap out of that old engine, and the terrifying atmosphere is already making the other mod Afraid of Monsters, created by the same people, look like a walk in the park.

Apart from that, I'm collaborating with Pinkerator to create some music. Here's a little taste.

As for Taskless Sheep, we're hitting one technical hurdle after another, but we're keen on finishing that second album, even if it costs us our arms and legs! Or, at least a toe nail. Yeah, we could spare that.

And in case anyone remembers, this month I finally get to finish the book I mentioned back in 2008, thanks to a huge motivation boost from the annual National Novel Writing Month. It's damn infectious, I tell you.

Furthermore, my friend Vino released a demo of his game Digitanks (Windows only). Check it out if you're into strategy games such as Advance Wars, Command and Conquer, or StarCraft. Even if you're not fond of the strategy genre, at least take a look at the opening sequence. I promise you, you'll enjoy it and gladly forward it to others. The music's quite good, too!

And lastly - remember this site well. Things might change sometime in the future.

Ah, and here we are again.

As you might have noticed, the server was down for the past few days. The real cause was never found (presumably hacking attempts), but the HDD got replaced and filled with a fresh OS install. We'll see if the problem returns.

If any error pops up anywhere, feel free to tell me about it.

And as always, thank you for staying around.

And the winner of the 6th PHQ Contest is Chekaloff, who not only submitted pictures of two finished Sadism Express models, but also included a detailed step by step tutorial on how to make your own! Congratulations!

The awesomeness doesn't stop there though. Actine sent in another bunch of pictures, including Pestilence Keyboard, Sandism Somos, and Sandism Ambience (the part with the School of Sadism on top of a hill).

TheNameless brightened my day with his Adventure of Tim Vic.

Two games have been sent in, namely The Victim Processing Facility (screenshot) by Zeustiger (you need this to play), and Halfquake Moon (screenshot) by HunterxD007.

Raveseven remade the Halfquake Amen Intro song, while Szaladin put his mind to work on a For What It's Worth Ambient Mix.

Hexonoize submitted an experimental Blueberry Hill Remix and Kowi an insane version of Trapped.

Thank you everyone for your submissions! As advertized, the winner will get the main package, while everyone else will receive a little surprise in the next few weeks.

And so, the sixth PHQ contest ends!

There have been some excellent submissions, I'm blown away by awesomeness. It's gonna be very hard to pick a winner. Come back on September 5th to find out who gets the main package.

Also, today Halfquake Amen is eight years old! To celebrate this, all items at the Place Where You Can Buy Things will be reduced by 25% until September 5th.
