2010 Mod of the Year Awards

Posted by Nicolas in General

Hello everyone it’s Nicolas, live from Canada. Hope you had a great experience with I Hate Mountains despite our little wanderings on the update side. I’m sure Marc and Geoffroy are actively taking over the development while I’m on the other side of the world without any computer allowing me to work on the project. I’m out of my catharsis to tell you about the ModDB’s 2010 Mod of the Year Awards that take place every year at the same period (spoiler: now).

The Annual Mod of the Year Awards is the premiere event that celebrates the best creations within the modding and indie gaming scene. Developers have delivered plenty of great gameplay experiences this year, and now it is your turn as gamers to nominate and recognize the best of 2009.

From now until Feb 20th, we shall be sharing a year in review and showcasing the editors’ picks of 2010, culminating in the announcement of this year’s best mod and game as voted by you. The top mods and games will win the honors of being placed alongside other projects that have gone on to become commercial successes and cement their place in ModDB’s hall of fame.

If you liked I Hate Mountains and wish to vote for us, please do so by clicking the banner below and by voting on the next page, it’s free and you don’t have to register ! Feel free to share it on Facebook or Twitter on the next page too.

Autumn news

Hi folks,

We really think that it’s time to give you some fresh news about what’s going on and what’s planned for the Left 4 Dead 2 version of I Hate Mountains.

  • First of all, if you didn’t check our Twitter recently, you have to know that Nicolas moved in Montréal (Canada) a few weeks ago. So Geoffroy and me assumed the end of the conversion and we are currently working on it. Nicolas actually helps us as much as he can with the help of MSN and Skype.
  • Then, you have to know that we took a long break since September. However, just after the 1.1 release, we listened to all of your critics and built the 1.2 version of I Hate Mountains.This version is already finished and will be simultaneously released with the L4D2 version.

About this last one, we are currently working hard on it and it shouldn’t be too long for a release ! As we said on Twitter last week, we fixed a deadline but we prefer not to reveal it for the moment.

Apart from this, we are trying to adapt our original poster into a L4D2 layout style. But we actually hesitate between two instances. Tell us what is your preference, and we will choose according to your votes! (choose screen 1 or 2 in your commentary)

Please keep in mind that these propositions are still work in progress.

Finally, we received a postcard from Francis and his folks. They currently spend some VERY good time in the Canadian forests, and expect to see you again as soon as as possible!

And a last word : Thanks to Valve and their last DLC which has greatly simplified our work! It took time, but it’s finally good!
