Finally I reached Vienna. In two days I'll be back home and start my work on Personal Halfquake. Hope you all had a good time.

I just found this news entry at GamersChronicle.com:

When not spending exorbitant amounts of money at Best Buy, I'm playing games. That should be a familiar thing if you are visiting this site on purpose. An interesting mod has had my attention recently, HalfQuake: Amen. This is one twisted mod... It looks like Tron in black and white but plays like some kind of Alice in Wonderland meets Hellraiser. You start off as a human, being punished for being human, and trapped in some kind of warped dimension where light can't, or won't, exist. Nearly everything kills you...dead. You have to solve puzzle after puzzle and there's almost no meaning to anything. One of my favorite parts is right after the beginning where you fall down a hole and get the famous "Tetris" music from the old Game Boy version. Excellent choice of music for something so trivial. There's this one part called "Patience" which requires, exactly, 20 minutes of...patience. Just standing there, you know, being patient. You get this feeling of entrapment, confusion, and the desire to escape which just really pulls you into the game. The whole goal of the mod is punishment and they really drive the point home. However, I'm just enough of a sick bastard to find the experience beautifully bewildering. It's like a really cool nightmare! Definitely check it out if you get the chance and are looking for something...different.

Thanks to Deiru.

Oh and I found a new form entry about Halfquake Amen: click here

December 19th 2002

Another year dies and the next one is already growing in mother earth's womb.

This year was a very important one for the farm. Halfquake Amen got released and became a little success, we got lots of new fans, an online comic, a new site design and the new farm member darrn. Unfortunately phoenix left the farm because of other interests, but we're still in contact.

What's coming in 2003?
First of all: There'll be the online-game "personal halfquake", which I'm going to write in perl and mysql.
Second: Maybe I'll do some warcraft III maps. At least I got some ideas already. But I'd need a better PC...
Third: Maybe darrn's going to release hqa: the next victim sooner or later.
Fourth: The online comic of halfquake amen goes on.

I'll be away from tomorrow till Tuesday, January 7th 2003. There will be no new Halfquake Amen Comics and no news entries for you during this time. Maybe sven and darrn will write some reviews and news in their sections. Oh, and if you're bored then download silent knight.

Anyway, I hope you had a good year too, at least in virtuality. Wish you all nice holidays, vacations and - of course - a good new year. Hope I meet you all again in 2003.

Stay dead.

Darrn's project got mentioned in the hangar 16 new blood forum.

And what about me?
Well, I decided to have a short break. I'll start "Personal Halfquake" in January 2003. I need this, really.

Meanwhile I'm playing warcraft III and making some music (a depressive cover of silent night for example).. Maybe I'll do some maps for warcraft III. Who knows.

Stay dead.

Finally, the new farm design is online.

There are a few bugs that will be erased as soon as possible. (especially when browsing with opera)

If you notice any errors or bugs please write me an email.

My next project is called "Personal Halfquake". You'll be able to build your own institute and kill victims to gain experience points.

Stay dead.

THIS IS OUR NEW DESIGN :D

No, seriously. I always wanted to do a trashy disco themed site. It's familiar to a trip I had (not) when I heard some aphex twin music.
A message to our children:
Don't you ever imitate this!

Ah yeah, the new design is comin on Monday or Tuesday ... Stay um .. tripped or somethin..

Awww.. such nice colors! (=
