Single Status Update
Fidoop, you had a wonderful mod idea a while back, "Unnatural Selection" of which there has been no news about for a long while now. You seem to have come back to the game after a while, so if you don't mind me asking, what's the status on the mod, and do you think it will get done? While I'm totally fine either way, but would just like to hear about it one way or another.
I never left the game just sort of stopped looking at the forums is all. The problem with Unnatural Selection was that we were building up hype for it all the time and at the same time coming up with more and more ideas to push and getting hype for those ideas too! Buuuuut eventually we realized we had a project on our hands that would take even Klei a year or 2 to put together. And we had more hype built up than we could even deliver on which lead to some serious impatience in some people and made working conditions incredibly stressful for us. Not to mention we'd have to be doing all that work for free... And even if we set up a Patreon or something for it we'd end up having to split the money 20 ways because of how big our dev team was.
In short, as much as I hate saying it Unnatural Selection is just too big of a feat to tackle. So we've recently decided it was time to put it out of its misery. Unnatural Selection is no longer going to happen. HOWEVER, we are keeping the characters, some of the assets, a lot of the code we had, and some of our ideas. They'll come out in my other mods in time!
There is a new project in the works that I'm working on with a small team... It was originally just going to be named Unnatural Selection but we decided with how different of an approach we were taking people would get mad if we released it under the Unnatural Selection name. There's not much I can say about the project other than it's being worked on. We really don't want to build hype before we're ready for it and cause yet another mod to die because of it.
