Project 1995 – Red Eclipse build (cancelled)

As i promised there is another video about our cancelled project that made in post-apocalyptic USSR style. My previous video made with using our old footages from Space Soldiers game (Tesseract fork that cancelled too) but this one recorded with using current maps for Red Eclipse. As i told before the project was launched in 2013 and used as a base Cube 2 Sauerbraten. The project was inspired by “Picnic on the Roadside” by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky and also by game STALKER. The setting was chosen appropriately. Initially, only the single-player mode was planned, but with the change of engine to the Red Eclipse it was decided to do the multiplayer part (Deathmatch, CTF ect). Hundreds hours spent to make our maps look real. Most of stuff made by Gespent but i take part in creating some stuff too.

At the initial stage, the team is not big, but at the end it spread to a dozen people, including a composer and two screenwriters. One of the screenwriters even told that he want write book based on his text. But because of the poor management in all aspects of development, work on the project was discontinued. Only a few assets remained, while the models were lost.

I found some maps and spent some time to revamp our older outdated works to state that alow me to record footages for this video. As you can see there is some errors still but atmosphere should be fine still. Enjoy.
