Title: The Manhunt (Return to Na Pali Episode II)
Developer: UMS Research & Development Division "The Manhunt"
Status: Developing
Synopsis:
The Manhunt begins where Return to Na Pali left off - with the crash of UMS Bodega Bay. The player, Bodega Bay's Executive Officer, must find a way off Na Pali, then locate and apprehend or eliminate the fugitive, Prisoner 849.
Meanwhile, the Bodega Bay's Captain, John Clark, awakens in a Skaarj research facility and is subjected to a brutal interrogation. He manages to escape the facility but must find a way off the planet as well.

Features:
- multiple new maps in two initially separate storylines,
- aerial combat
- new weapons, amonst them: Unreal II's terran arsenal.

Further information:
Bleeder, SteadZ, Z-Enzyme, Dozey and myself are working in concert on this one, alongside Episodes III: Operation Stealth Claw and IV: Na Pali War. While we do not specifically require fresh blood in our ranks, it'd certainly be most welcome!

These screenshots looks really intriguing. Tell me, is that bleached skin I see on the player model or is it my imagination? Necris perhaps?

It's a placeholder from a skin pack. One of the reasons I've been delaying starting this thread since... MARCH?!... was because the protagonist model ain't really ready. Well not even started on yet. Z-Enzyme is however making so much for the project I wouldn't even dare to begin complaining about the order in which he makes models... I swear, this guy would outclass, outrun, outskill and outmaneuver any machine he'd compete with. :)

I'd prefer first person view option, anyway. No matter how cool new model will be.

Primarily, yes. This is going to be overtheshoulder. While I am still ambivalent about keeping or ditching the FPP mode (I'll PROBABLY keep it), the primary recommended view will be over-the-shoulder third person perspective vide Mass Effect.

I think the over-the-shoulder thing is generally unheard of for Unreal, so that makes it distinct. So long as you guys make it as fun (or more) as normal first-person gameplay there will be joy had by all I expect. And I think you have the talent on this team to make that happen :tup:

FPP is more immersive. I don't bother with third person games, I'm sure others think this way too.

I prefer fpp, but I think it's cool to have a tpp pack in the works. Mods are allowed/encouraged to be experimental

Two pics from the Commander's side of the story - from the very beginning.
Map author: Dozey.
Skin: DeathKnight (Red) by Kasarul, so not the protagonist's... placeholder.

If you're looking for another mapper, I'd be quite eager to make some winter-themed levels for you! (I've been making a few now for the sake of fun alone).
