@HarryTuttle

Let's keep this civilized please. This game is NOT a Russian title and the developers are NOT from Russia but from UK afaik. It just happened that it got published there (along with UK & US). Political discussion is unrelated.

I just read at Adventure-Treff that (some) backgrounds was stolen from the elder scrolls. I never play the elder scrolls oblivion game, but if it's true I really think it's very bold to sell such a game.

Limbo of the Lost has become the worlds most famous adventure within just a few hours!
If I were you, I'd hire these guys for your marketing-department ;-)

There is a difference between famous and infamous... :p

You know what I'm ashamed of? I must have played this game for like at least 5 hours and DIDN'T NOTICE A THING! Aside from graphical incoherence, that is. I just thought "wow the bacgrounds are well composed but looks like it's designed by a bunch of difference people" but not "hey I recognize that from thief!"

And they still spent 3 years in making this? Spent most of it drinking beer, I presume?

I am one of the visitors drawn here by the controversy, however this is not my first visit here or my first exposure to the engine.

Out of morbid curiosity I looked through the post history of SBOVIS and from what I can tell he didn't know a lick about coding. You had to hold his hand through the simplest things as he borrowed code from all over. How did this joker get a publisher? Did it ever seem odd to you that this guy was releasing a commercial game but apparently lacked basic programming ability?

That's only true for Paris Hilton. I think WME deserves something better than that. There are comments all over the net about the shitty quality of the game. Lest people think it's the engines fault. I'm glad you take it with humour(I do find the new banner hilarious myself), but I'm sure you'd like any other game but this one to advertise the engine. WME really has potential and this sorry excuse for a game is very good at hiding that.

Well I'm one of those who discovered this engine with the controversy, and I think Wintermute looks cool ! I'll surely give it a try :)

Also, the banner made me laugh ;D

The new banner is great  ;D

Can anybody please tell me how to code a game like oblivion in WME.. Is there a "make game button" somewhere in the editor or has anybody got some code for me?  ;)

It's been a while since I posted here, but Wintermute is a wonderful engine that doesn't deserve this kind of bad publicity.  I hope that the knock on effect from these idiots isn't too damaging for the whole project.

I can't imagine how that should seriously become a problem for WME ... as long as there is no importFromOblivion()-function mnemonic should be on the safe side ;-)

Personally I don't see an issue for the Wintermute Engine. This is my first exposure to the engine, but anyone who can read for 20 seconds can understand its the engine is open for anyone to use, and is 2.5D, so you can use any screenshot for a background of a scene or whatever.

I don't see how they got it to be ~2.5gb with all that but hey ;) I "grabbed" a copy for myself but I don't think I have the will to install it.

As someone said, Limbo Of the Lost has become of the worlds most famous adventure games (and maybe PC game in general!), so those guys could really work in marketing (but probably not in PR :-) )...

But I would suggest to keep it down, we are just human beings (i am not sure, if this is the right expresion in English) and there is no need to beat those guys even here :-)... Why? Well i think, that the upcoming days, weeks and months will be full of beating these guys from any "game side" :-), and even if not, the court of law will compensate it more the good.

So lets act like "humans" (i know that this expresion is incorrect in english :-) ).

But lets talk about the issue, if anyone can be so naive and silly or if it is really one BIG conspiration advertisement :-)...!?
