Remorse Mod DB Announcement+New Renders+StorylineV0.1

The ModDB announcement of Remorse has just been posted:

"[i]From the []Moddb[/url] Website:[/i]

PhenomenaGames is proud to announce Remorse, an FPS with a twist.

Remorse will be played in a sci-fi environment. It will feature aliens, a solid storyline and tense gameplay.

Remorse is being built upon our own engine called Existence 2.0.

Existence 2.0 uses OpenGL and SDL which allows it to be cross platform. In other words, you won't need crappy win32 dll files to play it!

The game and engine code will be open source. You can already download the engine and code from our website under the GNU GPL licence.

Talking about websites, we've also seriously revamped our website.

Check it out at

Progress is slow right now since we're all in an exam period atm but here is a bit of work we already did.

Recruitment fever

We've had an almost unhealthy number of responses to the tech demo, resulting in a rapid growth of the development team. This enthousiastic response even surprised me. As a result, we can start to generate some serious content for the game. Work is now underway to setup the correct infrastructures needed to support the team. As a coder, this means I have to get my lazy ass back to work to implement the features needed by the new guys. I am confident that our next demo will show some actuall Remorse content in full action. The technology is almost there, we just have to follow our creative minds.

Engine Tech Demo

The second tech demo of the Existence 2.0 Engine has been released to the public. If you want to see the technology driving Remorse, take a look at it. We hope to receive a lot of feedback and maybe some new enthousiastic team members. To get the demo, go to the SourceForge page:
Or to the PhenomenaGames website:

Have fun.

Announcement: Media update

Stay tuned, tonight we will have some new media for you,
All I can say is that it will be something involving the engine.

Silencer speaks!

So, my first post on the Remorse development blog. I'm Silencer, the project leader and coder of the Existence 2.0 engine which is used for this mod. I will be posting updates on the engine's technology and its application. To warm you up a bit, here are some preview shots of the maps we're currently working on:

Modelling update

I thought I'd post another update so:

Here is a low poly render of one of the creatures that's gonna be in the game:

W.I.P as usual but it's coming close to its texture phase.


We are still in high need of new team members to fill the following positions:

- 1 Character modeller
- 1 Weapon modeller
- 1/2 Concept artists
- 1 Texture artist
- 1 Animator
- 1 Sound Artist

Especially an Animator and a Concept artist.

The first update post!,
But first:

We need more teammembers:

- 1 Character modeller
- 1 Weapon modeller
- 1/2 Concept artists
- 1 Texture artist
- 1 Animator
- 1 Sound Artist

If you're interested contact Silencer:


Here's a quick summary of what we've done/are doing so far:


-Primary weapon placeholder made
-.OBJ load function implanted
-2 Character models ready for textures
-2 Weapon models ready for textures

Working on:

-Engine .OBJ/Shadow problem:


"Joe told me about the bad performance with the character models in the engine. Today I found out that the shadow optimization is not functioning for OBJ models, resulting in 3*(trianglecount) of shadows to be generated. I'm fixing this now and the scenes with OBJ models in them should be speed up considerably."

-Uving the first real weapon model
-Working on another character

Oh, I'd like to introduce all of the Team members:

-Silencer; Project Leader - Mapping/Lead Coder
-Joecatshoe (Gert); Texture Artist

And our 3 latest team members:
