The time has come once again for the annual MOTY awards. Coincidentially, TNM is a mod which was released this year! After 7 years in development, we’re extremely excited to finally have the opportunity to compete in the category of released single player modifications.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be featuring a series of educationally awesome videos to bring you up to speed on exactly why TNM should be your mod of choice. So sit back, relax, and enjoy as OiNutter tells the whimsical tale of the fantastic holiday of Melkmas!

Do you feel enlightened? I’m sure you do, so head on over to our profile and vote for TNM!

TNM Featured on ModDB’s Summer of Mods and Indies

July 22nd, 2009

ModDB has fired up a new promotion titled “Summer of Mods and Indies“, and we’re extremely excited about it!  The idea behind the promotion is to get the word out about the best mods from the first half of the year, mods that are often forgotten by the time their annual Mod of the Year contest rolls around.  While there are no prizes for SoMI, the publicity they’re providing to participating mods is fantastic.

This week, The Nameless Mod will be featured, and we’ll be showcasing some very exciting content.  They’re starting off with a pimped out, whiz-bang version of our post mortem.  For those of you that have already read the post mortem, it’s still worth checking out just for the eye candy; we provided them with a lot of previously unreleased images from development and I’m sure there’ll be some interesting bits of eye candy in there! 

Of course, we don’t want to just rehash old material, so we’ve spent the last couple of weeks putting together some juicy bits of TNM media that you’ll be able to check out later in the week, so keep an eye on the promotion page, and be sure to check out some of the other mods as they go up!

ModDB Developer Banter – The Nameless Mod

March 19th, 2009

For a bit of a peek behind the scenes of the development of The Nameless Mod, ModDB has just published their Developer Banter segment featuring Lawrence Laxdal, Jonas Wæver, and Shane Tapp of Off Topic Productions. Recorded a month before the game was released, it offers a pre-mortem look at the design principles behind the game and the process of developing TNM.

Developer Banter – The Nameless Mod

The informal interview deals with the role of feature creep in mod development, keeping the story in check, designing an open-ended yet narrative-driven game, balancing the wish to trust the player with the need to impart the necessary information, the team’s plans for the future, incorporating community engine enhancements, the advantages of modding to game developers, the health of the Deus Ex community, our favourite moments in the mod (including funny bugs during development), and advice for other modders.
