Sorry for any inconvenience!

Check out this interesting movie created in Sandbox by Levonbuck! It does have some slight inappropriate language but it is mild.

How To Make Video Games Article

Before I had thought about writing a book on video games and actually completed a lot of it but ended up getting caught up in other projects. I was thinking perhaps it'd be a better idea to write articles on it. I could have an article on how to make video games from concept to release and perhaps even on mapping tips, promoting your work, etc. My main question is, if I were to put the work into doing this, would anyone read it? Also what kind of articles are people interested in? Let's chat about it in the forums :)

Watergun Wars Announced - Volunteers Wanted!

Thanks to a lot of help from Cube 2 I'd like to introduce Watergun Wars! The game will feature the action of the more adult games shooting games but instead of blood and gore it will feature water blasting destruction! Current modes are "Drenchmatch" "Team Drenchmatch", CTF, Base Capture and hopefully more!

Currently the SVN aka Development version already has the working water guns!! Water guns include the water pistol, water chaingun, water balloon launcher, water balloon rocket launcher, water sniper, water shotty, and water saw! I'd love to eventually get a Water Thrower in too ;D You can download it right now and try it out for yourself! Using Waterwars.bat will launch you right into the test map!

If you are interested in helping out or want more information check out the Watergun Wars Forum Thread!
