The Woodpecker mod for Amnesia: released this weekend!

Hello stalkers!

A quick blog to let you know that I participated in the Frictional Fan Jam: Winter Modding Event! 👩‍💻

Come to me.

I’m a big fan of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. myself. Plus I’m a big fan of Amnesia, Penumbra & especially SOMA. So guess what?

I decided to create a narrative experience keeping in mind: what could happen if the worlds of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and SOMA were linked, in a parallel universe? 🤔

The Woodpecker
Coming soon in 3 days! 🤩

The themes for this jam were Winter and hibernation.

I worked hard to try producing a simple yet decent storyline in original environments you are not accustomed to in Amnesia, partly inspired by S.T.A.L.K.E.R. titles. 📡

What do you wish?

Your goal: complete your mission. There is a good reason you came back to this place after all those years…

I hope you will have a fun time in this strange, desolated complex! 😄

Released planned for the end of the Jam, this Sunday!

Public Early Access release!

Hello stalkers! Big announcement!

Clear enough? 😄

I officially announce that Forbidden Trip, formerly known as the Cadaver Party Project, will enter the public Early Access phase for Xmas 2019 (GMT+1)! 🎉
Well that means in 23 hours! 🤩

You can download it here when it’s out! It is a 2.18gb zip archive.
Its password is party (it’s written in the description of the file)!

Connect.

Installation

As a reminder, this is a Total Conversion; to install it simply extract the Forbidden_Trip folder inside the archive at the root of your Amnesia: The Dark Descent folder if you use Steam. For retail edition put it in the redist folder.

Be sure to have your game up-to-date and freshly installed, which means no other mods present to avoid potential crashes/conflicts.

Check the readme file inside the archive for basic troubleshooting if you get crashes during loading screens. 😉

Dive in.

Forbidden Trip is compatible with Enhanced Shaders by Stayd !
It’s an optional feature still it’s pretty cool!

Updates

I will be able to start updating Forbidden Trip Early Access in mid-January. There will be small size patches don’t worry.

I am waiting for you.

Since it’s an Early Access, there will be some bugs or incomplete content, some things may also change in the future… no worries.

If you need more information about the Early Access release, feel free to read the Mod DB article written for the occasion.

Opinions matter a lot

Also, please send your feedback, good or bad, that’s not a problem if you explain why, it will help me improve things! I read every message even if it’s hard to answer everyone!

See you soon stalkers, I hope you will enjoy it! ☃

Update before Early Access, happy F13th!

🔪 Hello stalkers and happy Friday the 13th! 🎶

Today I just want to give you another quick update on what’s going on!
Disclaimer: the gif above shows my current mood, it’s that good. 😏

Write, save,
recompile, test,
restart process.
Wooo, mysterious blur!! 👻

These days I essentially do a lot of proofreading as well as some edits to make sure everything is fine for the upcoming Early Access! There will be English on release, other languages may come in the future, French at least. 🥖

Since the last blog update, improvements were made on different maps, especially in the optimization & visual departments! Those were the last big tasks I had planned.
Some scripting updates were done here and there as well.

I also re-introduced and finished areas that I had removed at some point, which means there are more (dangerous) places to visit now, isn’t that great?! 😈

Minor changes, corrections and additions have been made concerning sounds.

To sum up, right now I’m finishing the proofreading part and need to control a certain map (i.e. automatic checkpoints plus its puzzles) then… time for a release.

I hope you have been nice this year.

See you very soon! 💽🥳

Welcome!

Relax… take a sit and a drink… 💺🍵
This is just a quick message don’t worry!
🍿

The purpose of this website is to showcase my previous, current & future works regarding modding, mapping, more generally everything related to video games creation.
🧠🌪🏗

I might add other things; like photography or music… I will see, not very urgent.

The current big project is Forbidden Trip, also known as the Cadaver Party Project. Started in 2013, it was more or less… erm… halted during 2018 & 2019 because of IRL work. Hey, that’s life! 😏

Now I have time for myself again so… let’s finish it. Oh well boom just like that: public early access is planned for Q4 2019.
No more delay. 📅

 QUACK QUACK QUACK. 

To resume, expect more content, other games, past or present prototypes, maps etc. in the future. That’s a strange sentence to read and I’m repeating myself, damn. Well at least I am clear… am I? 🤔

Feel free to contact me if needed and have a veeeery nice day/night, stalkers! 👺
