    Patiently awaiting another "I heard this game looks bad" comment in the thread, despite awesome content being very obviously present.


    I'm so glad that they're going all out with the soundtrack this time. It'll be wonderful to experience Dear Esther with a full orchestra backing the visuals.

    No, I'm actually more excited, this looks absolutely gorgeous! Some of the best outdoor graphics I've seen in a while.

    Judging by the lates and dumb, I can assume we still need to pay.

    That's still bullshit. I mean, no one made him remake the damn thing, it was his idea. Trying to sell your hobby that you do for your own benefit is bullshit.

    I know what you're going to say, "WAT ABOOT GAME DEVELOPERZ?". Well, game developers make shit not as a hobby, but as a fucking job. They get paid to do it because other people want them to make something, not because they want to make it.

    In my opinion, all mods should be free. I'm pirating this and I hope the developer knows that.

    unlike you im appreciative of hard work and good art, which is what this mod is practically a flagship for. your attitude, how you selfishly expect something from someone who has no obligations to you, is fucking childish.

    well let's see

    this guy is making a game, and he's getting paid once the game releases. Therefore it is a job

    and by your logic no indie developers should be paid, right? after all they are making games from their own ideas and not because some publisher is telling them to

    speaking of paying (I haven't kept up with DE), is this just new assets but the same basic premise or was stuff added like a director's cut?

    Q. I haven’t played the original,should I wait for the commercial release? Will playing the original mod completely spoil it for me?

    A. I think this is something you must decide for yourself. It’s a remake after all,but with a ton of additional visuals,details and information added in. Think of it as a Director’s Cut.
    Yeah probably, apart from visuals and audio, I think there may be some new shit regarding story
    The only thing they've shown off is mostly the maps, cause Briscoe is such a fucking boss mapper.

    They have a pretty hard out team too

    I would say having a few professionals would justify a price tag of something

    sucks though, that the game version will be squished by kids, who have softened their heads with pew pew - games. :(
    Seriously, its not always about "pew pew bang bang". >.>

    That was one of the best trailers I have ever seen.
    And that was one of the best musical pieces I have ever heard.

    I am buying seven copies of this game.

    Weird how at the beginning of this thread, people were talking about how bad this mod was, and now people are saying it's really great.

    I personally thought that this mod was amazing. Even if I've played the original, I'll happily buy this new version of it.

    That is Source? I would believe the devs if they suddenly announced they were lying the whole time and it was actually developed on CryEngine 3. I would buy this, just to look around ingame. Of course just a few months ago I shelled out for bf3, so it might not be happening.

    Yes, it is by the composer herself.

    She sent it to me, we conversed through several emails for about a year.
