Hi everyone, its been a while since i last visited even posted, but now i have a spare hour I thought I would pop on here and see how everyone is doing.

I have been busy the last few years with a number of projects, including my sci-fi survival horror http://www.ghostshipaftermath.com

Apart from that i have been specialising in sci-fi design, CGI and models etc as can be seen here (much inspiration has come from B5)


I have been embracing VR this last year and Ghostship Aftermath is made for VR.  During development I have always been envisioning actually being ins-side a star fury and one hell of a huge leap the TBP.  I checked out a while back and not much has been mentioned in ccp about VR, but i personally think i would lend some expetise for this area when the time arises and gets a little more popular.

There are a few posts on here about the Earth barakiri War, Infestion, suvivor and StarFury cannon missions pack.  I should still have all the original on one of my old backups if i need to dig some of them out.

That animation looks badass - I especially like the chunky transport looking model at the start - very cool and utilitarian.

Thanks, Blackwolf,  have not done any animation for a while, but intend to get back onto that at Xmas.

Ghostship Aftermath, and the forthcoming CDF ghostship games have been my prime focus.  here is the trailer for Aftermath (its made for VR, and works great in NonVR)

Yeah,  I released Eath Brakiri war back in 2008 just as i started uni i got my bachelors in games design.

Been busy with lots of stuff over the last few years, But Ghostship has been my main focus,  almost done now.

So how did everyone get on with EBW and the B5 SFP mission packs :)  Been years since i played them myself.  I am going to give them a whirl again in a few months when i get some time.

Do you need some beta testing or similar for those? Because while I loved your missions, they were quite buggy ;)!
Which is why I made the patch in the first place. I'm also doing the Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines patch...

Your missions work fine now with my patch, but I never touched the EBW because I didn't even like the setting :)!

Hi MAG, I've checked out more of your two Ghostship games now and read a lot of reviews on Steam. Still I have some questions: So Ghostship Aftermath is the survival horror version of CDF Ghostship which is the FPS version. But you already get weapons and enemies in the former. This sounds pretty much like the same game to me, except for gameplay details that could be chosen in an options menu. A lot of people complain about lack of saving and perma-death. Wouldn't it be much easier to have people turn this on and off in options than release the whole game twice? Or will CDF Ghostship contain more content, like additional space stations and ships to explore?

Both games are very different and have different mechanics.  CDF Ghostship is the FPS with 4 games modes, story mode for free roaming, onslaught - wave based survival horror etc,  The storyline is based on what happened on the ship and space station and is a FPS with no perma death, some differnt enemies and weapons.  The game is also going to be multiplayer and CDF focuses action as it is an FPS.

Ghosthsip aftermath is a new breed of survival horror with shooting elements, roguelike elements and is made for VR (Virtual reality)  It has perma death, o2, light mechanics etc and has random stories, elements, and enemies.  The game is much slower pace and the storyline is based after the CDF Ghostship game.

Both are very different, look out for CDF Ghostship coming to Steam  Early access on halloween

We just had our first Expo and PR event at the PLAY EXPO in Manchester UK over weekend.
