Posted by Data in Cortex Command - November 18th, 2006

After almost six years in the making, the Cortex Command engine (the ‘Retro Terrain Engine’, actually) is ~80% done. It is finally time to make an actual game out of it, complete with a story line and a campaign of scenarios! So, earlier this week we started a forum hidden from the public to coordinate art production for the final game.

Official forumsHowever, in the spirit of open development, we decided today to un-cloak it and allow Cortex Command fans everywhere to see exactly what’s going on behind the scenes!

Only official developers can post and modify the threads within, but please feel free to comment and discuss the development efforts in the General forum.

Please note that this Official dev forum will contain pretty much complete spoilers of the story and what the final game will contain. So, if you’d rather enjoy the campaign with fresh eyes, you shuold NOT go here:

    Hmm, interesting.

    If I could do anything to help, just ask, Dan (I am a pixel artist and amateur programmer).

    Lorne, got a website with some of your stuff?

    Further comments:
    The ‘Alternative Lander’ sounds great, I would love to have HWPs in the game.
    The ‘Larger Robot’ sounds like it could be interesting, but it should be implemented along-side or after bandages/shields. Large things aren’t so great if they bleed to death 30 seconds after a few shotgun blasts hit ;).

    Can’t comment on the story, since, y’know, I want it to be a fresh experience.

    And a reply ;):
    I don’t have a site, personally.
    Large pixel art (Meaning hardly relevant):

    Mods (Which contain custom graphics (Sorry if you wanted the graphics seperate)):

    Beyond scripting things using the custom mod scripts, I would probably just hold you back, so I couldn’t do much there.

    Bleeding has been changed… I guess I should write a separate post about it. Anyway, it stops now after a short while.

    I hope theres a bandage button for multiplayer, like you can press the bandage button multiple times to stop bleeding. that would be awesome
