    These guys are doing the same mistake Epic did with UT3. They making their maps way too cluttered, making it hard to identify players in all that visual gloom.

    I read elsewhere that they are remaking environments of Neocron,
    also developed by them. Neocron was/is a near future MMORPG
    that was/is popular in Germany.

    What's hilarious is that there are so many assets that I can point out that were used in UT3 in this game. Like, the chinese lanterns, the pagoda archways, a lot of the pipes, some guard rails, many steps, dumpsters, ramps, fans, walls, building walls, lights, the fluorescent lights... I mean, I shouldn't point them all out, but there are tons.

    You probably should, because unless those are UDK assets, they're being resold...

    Man, this game is such a burn on UT is really isn't even cute. I guess imitation is flattery, but this borders on just weird. I think it's the UT3 map 'Downfall' with the blue holographic figure moving on top of the building....they even copied that idea except changed it to a stripper or something.

    Pathetic idea really. Looks more like a conversion mod.

    Yeah, it's pretty hilarious. If I want to play UT2004, I'll just play UT2004.

    Also, have I mentioned the name for the game is the dumbest thing ever?

    A lot of them are also in UDK. It's definitely worth investigating on a more thorough level, though.

    The game is basically bone stock UDK. The movement is close to identical to UT3 in every way.

    I must say, personally I am curious as to what the legality is of using UT3 source code in a UDK retail product.

    Nothing wrong with being inspired by something, but wholesale ripoffs are are whole different thing. The joke remains that the game they have yet to release was released in both 2004 and '07.

    What it is is pure marketing. Putting a "new" label on an old product. I have to say that UT4 has likely taken some wind out of those sails; I bet the Toxikk devs were more than a bit disappointed at Epic's announcement back when and at the excitement that the new game has generated.

    Why have re-heated hamburgers when fresh steak is on the way?

    All I gotta say is... "this game is a joke". Seeing that the beta has been released on steam for a pretty high price, I can tell they're just trying to make some quick and easy money from a knock off of a product. The way things are going on the development is probably not going to be a totally finished game.

    Imitating physics, graphics, weapons, and other mechanics from several games won't necessarily attract players from those communities. Things like this actually pisses players off seeing how parts of their favorite game(s) are being put in a pile of dump. And seeing all the negative feedback from this game it looks like its going to be the biggest joke of a game that once was.


    ps. I hope that the trolls that bash and threatened forum users over at unrealtournament.com won't read this or they'll come and gang up on us for stating our opinions like we should :lol:

    They're not really imitating UT3, this is the important thing, it is UT3. It's the same source code and all, the majority of their game is that they've tweaked some variables and replaced the assets.

    ... And until the Epic do something, they will continue making the money ...

    BTW: All this Steam KickStarter system is just a big joke - there is many games in alpha / beta stage for years ... Now even for Early Access / Beta Testing you need to pay as for final product - it's ridiculous ...

    Called it
    I still wonder what sort of jedi mind trick they're using to make people forget UT3 existed, or their fans are too young to know about UT3 and the failure of it (and actual "1999" games to know the difference)

    It's UT3 with dodge jump on a really cramped and terrible map.

    Pretty funny when I double checked the values. It is identical. The values they did change are all minuscule changes.
