Did anybody else here know about this? I's a fan remake from a German developer, and they're scheduled to release it in German and English early next year.

    The demo is in english and in german language.

    Default is english and can be changed to german in a small config.ini file.

    SpeechPack-Demo is only available in german, but maybe listen to it is worthwhile, though.

  • Theres a small interview about MM3D on the German gamenews page "". The text is in German but there are 4 new Screenshots to be seen too.
    The Rooms were shown before but this more actual screenshots show the progress made since the Alpha Tech Demo.
  • The first 5 rooms were retextured and enriched with many new details. Now they are looking far better than the old screens which are still on our homepage and in the alpha demo.
    The remade parts of the house give the player more the feeling like there is really someone living there.
    Beside new textures and models I worked on cleaning up the room-models from unseen polygones which brings a good performance boost to the new rooms and in the end to the whole game.
    My personal goal is to get the level of detail of our 3D enviroment close to the 2D backgrounds of the later LucasArts adventures (e.g. Monkey Island 2, Indy 4). For performance reasons this won't be fully possible, but I try to come as close to it as I can without "overfilling" the well known original rooms with useless stuff or lowering the FPS. I'll just add a few things per room which would fit to it and make the textures more detailed.
