I haven’t seen any public announcement yet, so…
The old Remake Quake project is no more.
From its carcass rise SCHISM and Scout’s Journey.
Part of the old team is working on SCHISM; to my knowledge, this is still led by ijed. There has been no birth certificate yet, but talk of changes behind the scenes. Even before the split, there had been lively discussion about restructuring and downscaling the project, but I don’t know how much of that still applies. SCHISM is a bit of a mystery for now. Their forum is here.
The other new spawn is an RPGFPS called Scout’s Journey. This is headed by me (gb) helped by a merry band of friends. Scout’s Journey is going to have only 5 (very large) levels that can be revisited, three distinct factions of enemies, loot, trade, exploration, Elder Gods, platforming and more. Scout’s blog is here.
There is an informal agreement to share resources; I licensed my maps, code and assets to the other team, while Scout’s Journey uses much of the same gamecode and features as the old RMQ.
This is how things look a couple weeks after the split. There was no shooting, name calling or backstabbing. A few of us still hang around the old campfire in #rmq at irc.anynet.org.
Cadmus, the bringer of literacy and civilization, killed the sacred dragon that guarded the spring of Ares. The goddess Athena told him to sow the teeth, from which sprang a group of ferocious warriors called the spartoi.
