2008-05 Friday 31st, We've been naughty

We got kicked off our old server for "consuming" too much server power. After a couple of hectic days we now have the company, forum and support pages back, it's a good thing we already had a new dedicated server up and running!

We are now running all our sites from it, we had not planned to move all the sites already but, well, we had no choice any longer. As we had to move quickly some things might be broken, new, strange and odd, we might get the time to fix things up a bit more later. But for now this will do and we are now resuming our regular game development jobs.

Cheers!

lolz, used reputation on my old, forum. It really sucked and everyone started spamming to get higher score :O

Very nice, that new game looks (on the very small screenshot) like STALKER in a strange way, HPL 2?

Btw frictional; Love the new site. Looks very professional. And what's this?! Two games planned? You guys are moving forward! Bring out the drinks without the rat droppings!

Penumbra Requiem
Fun Fact: It was taken using the HPL viewer, a type of debug program availible for modders.
penumbra requiem img

Penumbra: Requiem - The horror continued in a short but sweet expansion for Black Plague. Experience an intense horror game filled with physics puzzles and deepened story on the events and characters from Black Plague. Penumbra: Requiem is currently in development and expected to be released in August 2008.



[Image: luxtenebras1.jpg]
Lux Tenebras - Not much is known about this upcoming but exiting game from Frictional Games. It is for sure a typical Frictional Game - creative, moody and filled with new and bright ideas. It runs on a new inhouse developed game engine, it has been granted a 300 000 DKK from the Nordic Game Program and it is slated for maybe a 2009 release.
Good news: The 300,000 DKK means they're getting some money (strings included though), which means the game will have a much higher quality than before. They might actually be able to afford Real Coffee, instead of having to use their imagination!

Here's a news article announcing Lux Tenibus (whatever it is) getting the grant, money, or whatever it's also called.
http://nordicgameprogram.org/index.php?o...Itemid=113

Can anyone translate this?
ʎ∀puoW ᴎo ƃuıɯOɔ oɟᴎı ǝᴚoɯ

And what does "Lux Tenebras" mean anyway? I've tried goggling it, but not much luck.

Please -REP me.
