It’s rather hard to believe, so brace yourself: as of midnight tonight, Natural Selection is now feature complete. It’s been almost two years in the making, but commander mode, the particle system code, 27 weapons, nine alien upgrades, a dozen marine upgrades, over a dozen Structures, a couple NSTRs, and so much more, has all been created. That’s not to mention anything about the hundreds of hours spent by the rest of the team on the concepts, models, textures, maps, writing, sound effects, music and everything else that’s necessary to make a game.
More features will be added in the future, but right now, we have everything we need for a solid first release. We intend to spend the next few weeks bug-fixing, polishing, balancing and finishing up art tasks. When we decide it’s good enough, we’ll release Natural Selection for free to the public.
Thanks for your hard work everyone, this is a real milestone. We’re almost there.
And to everyone that’s waiting to play, believe us, no one wants to finish this more then we do…
