Pedro sends us this progress report:
Unknown Enemy has now reached the point where it has commenced a closed beta test including the first six missions of the game. In the past few months, many tasks have been accomplished in order to make this possible.
Firstly, the voiceovers have been completed, as has the dynamic mission music. An example of the work done by our composer Michael "Needaham" Mahadeen can be found at ../downloads/musicsample.zip
The simulator missions have also been completed, and all the missions up to and including 6 have been cleared of all known bugs. A number of pieces of FMV by Hadrian and Rylex have been completed.
All this means that a final release is getting closer (though it is still difficult to set a date). We will soon be getting feedback on the game as it stands now, and will make any neccessary additions and alterations as quickly and efficently as possible. Apart from that, we still have a few more missions and in-game cutscenes to complete, as well as getting the remaining FMV pieces from Hadrian & Rylex.
We have also recently opened up a UE forum.
Furthermore, we have made a second wallpaper available.
Finally, having obtained a new model of the Dauntless, we have released the old model.
Over the past three months, UE has had regular weekly updates on our website. This will most likely continue right until the release. For the latest UE news and screenshots, visit us at http://unknownenemy.solsector.net/news.html
