The Salom Contest results are here! More Sky Flyers, comic art, a retrospective, and a word from James about features in the next stable OHR Engine release.

Please read the Letter from the Editor.

Not even one new game covered this issue and just one retrospective. That's kinda sad.

Hmm. I think it's about time I'd made a reminiscent review and preview of the Doom RPG / AKA Evil Unleashed.

The one-year mark of its development is fast approaching, and it'd probably be a good way to re-hype the audience it has so far, and be able to gain new support for it as well.

It'll most likely include:

-Pics of when I began work, including sketches of what I thought the new armor design should have been, before I worked on the OHR.

-Interviews and conversations with (former) ID Software member, and Doom's original mapper / storywriter, Tom Hall.

-Pictures of development, and commentary of why and how I mapped the way I did.

-Statements regarding the help I've been given during the course of this project, and thanks to those that have helped me.

-Information about the future of the game, and an updated storyline with bonus expanded intro, filling in points of what happened during the game's introduction, and before the moment the Anomaly Gateway opened.


... in other words, I'll be writing quite the lengthy report on the game. If nothing else, I'll also make a good Cover for this issue.

Yes, that's the point. You can change that!

Unless you start covering non-OHR games from former OHR members or I magically find a good OHR artist (i.e. he can bear with the huge restrictions) that wants to team up and doesn't disappear after a few weeks like it has happened to me with the last 2 OHR artists I was working with (Valkayree and GrandTrain), it's fairly unlikely. =/

I will not start covering non-OHR games and I'm not sure what recruiting an artist has to do with writing reviews/retrospectives of your own to fill in for the dwindling content.

I mean if I had someone doing the graphics for me, I might continue with making games. I mainly switched from OHRRPGCE to pure programming, because I don't really enjoy drawing sprites.

Well that's great but the problem isn't a lack of new games being released, it's a lack of people writing about those games.

I haven't seen any OHRRPGCE game I'd like to play for some time (last one I played being Spellshard).

I was interested in Motrya, but it never even got its soundtrack finished and is now cancelled as I heard.

That's nice, thanks for sharing. This is still irrelevant to any issue at hand.

I wonder why people decided to stop working with Rya? I mean, really. That's SHOCKING. What?!?!
