Korax' Heritage team announces new project

Thu, 01 Apr 2004 12:53:02

RambOrc

Our secret project, in the works for months by now, is today finally announced, proudly wearing the name "Santa Korax". The game's objective is to follow Santa Korax' reindeer sled (which is traveling at great speeds) and pick up the candies that might fall off the sled. The task isn't an easy one, because a lot of bad kids are running after the sled as well - the player needs to be faster than them. Since we didn't want to promote violence against minors, you are not allowed to use any weapons against the kids. Your only means of getting rid of them for a short time is two use one of two spells, "The Repulsive Spell Of Body Odor" and "The Extremely Repulsive Spell Of Bad Breath Resulting From Teeth Not Brushed For Two Weeks". Santa Korax' sled runs now and then into a roadblock where policemen try to stop the sled that travels at speeds far above any official limits. Your task is to run ahead of the sled and destroy these roadblocks (including the policemen) before the sled would crash into them (yes this time you are allowed to use weapons). Players can choose from 3 different character classes, including the Easter Bunny, the Chocolate Bunny and the Shit Bunny. Depending on character class, you can choose from a wide range of weapons and spells, including classic ones like the Hammer of Retribution and the Rocket Launcher but also all-new ones like the Rotten Yellow Eggs and the Freakin' Cold Mirror Shards. Since the Vavoom engine we originally intended to use for this project proved to be too complicated for the modest skills of our artists, mappers and programmers, we decided to go with the original unmodified Wolfenstein-3D engine. This also gave us the advantage to be able to use existing blue-uniform enemies for policemen, further reducing the effort needed to bring out this long-awaited release. For more information and to discuss this new project, check back on this forum thread frequently. There should be some screenshots up here by tonight.

I think "Poo Bunny" would be the better alternative name to the former since this is a cheerful mod <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> no need to get offended in the christmas spirit... even though it's 8 months away :O Besides, chipmunks, and ducks pwn bunnies <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

"Shit Bunny" is actually a straight translation of the Swiss German expression "schiishas" which is a nice way to call someone a coward. <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

LOL I just made it all up in 10 minutes this morning, but if people like the idea so much, it might be actually done (though not in Wolfenstein-3D but in Vavoom). <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

Aww, they're hurting my buddy Phoebus' feelings, this obviously refers to William Mull (billy is an alternative name) "The happy buyer is Billy "Dumpster" M?ll, private owner of a large gaming network." of course, his site is also called raven-games.com, though.... (Regged there since 01)

RambOrc

You want to tell me you don't know that ravengames.com (registered dec 12, 1998) was started in late '98 and raven-games.com (registered dec 21, 1998) was just an answer to it because the team behind the first was the hexen2.com team which site was in Phoebus' eyes "the enemy #1" back then? And that Phoebus actually achieved a shutdown of ravengames.com in March 1999 and the site was dead until May 2001 when it came back with a new team and is up ever since? <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

Well, at least he has something much better than Doomworld (NewDoom)

Too bad I've been IP banned from there for simply for being associated with RavenGames (I did manage to sneak in during the chaos back in January, but he banned me again).

Yeah he can be a nut sometimes. He threatened to sue after I said "hmm, the four winds must be blowing"
Sat, 03 Apr 2004 21:12:00

He's a nut most of the time, and he is the sole reason why Newdoom is not better than Doomworld.

Hehehehe!

Heh, I even did a huge gargoyle pic i've spent 2 days on in psp5 for his raven-games.com site, he rejected it, reasons unknown. <!-- s:| --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_neutral.gif" alt=":|" title="Neutral" /><!-- s:| --> Man, it looked just like the heretic gargoyle too... <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- s:( -->

So you guys are down to bragging? I can do that too... Phoebus stamped me "the Bin Laden of the Raven gaming community" back in 2001 (calling me this way in front of quite a lot of people, though always behind my back, never eye to eye) and he screwed even some of his best buddies for simply talking to me. Heck, he even made Kenn Hoekstra from Raven Software attack me a couple of times! You guys are just puny in comparison. <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P --> p.s. A shame you never thought to submit your gargoyle to RavenGames.com as long as I was there, I'd have published it. <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- s:( --> Do you still have that pic? I'd like to look at it.

Heh, I was slanging and called him "Phoeb-boy" for fun, hes like WHAT THE HELL You will be banned next time. If he can't stand a site with a similar domain name then I don't know what's good for him then, it's like Microsoft vs. Mikerowesoft, and SCO vs. Linux <!-- s:| --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_neutral.gif" alt=":|" title="Neutral" /><!-- s:| --> like why can't he get along. Funny how some doomworld-goers aren't banned in newdoom.... <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? --> Dunno if I have the pic on here still..... done it back in June 03 on my p166...

What Phoebus wants is complete control over things... and what he can't control, he seeks to destroy. Maybe if he would get a life he would be a more amiable person... <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P --> June 03 and you wonder whether you still have it? Hey I still have files I've been working on in the 1990s, it was but a couple of weeks ago when I finally completed the task of going through 50+ backup CDs (25+ gigs, 200'000+ files) and put them on 6 or 7 DVD-Rs, sorted by categories. <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

It's the fact that it's on a different computer (laptop) is what stops me, however everything I did on my main computer I still have <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> ranging from old 1991-ish qbasic games I did on guessing the number the computer thinks... and of course old quake mods. I've never backed up however <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P --> Phoebus likes to pull a SCO as always I see.
