Underground Progress
Description
Raindrop is a surreal, environment driven, first-person survival game that includes fully explorable levels with intuitive, complex puzzles.

Revolving around a horror themed storyline, the chilling and breathtaking atmospheres will keep you inching around each corner while uncovering the hidden truth behind the complex and its inhabitants. Scavenge items to build objects in order to piece together complex puzzles, or dangerous death traps. Gather hints and schematics to unveil rewards and information. Survive both the haunting environment and your own battered sanity.

Raindrop is under development by Raindrop Studios, a creative two man ensemble composed of Nihad Nasupovic and Max Ramirez. They are both hardworking and experienced video game developers who have invested many years into Raindrop and its previous versions. They strive to continuously improve and ripen Raindrop into the full fruition it deserves.

Raindrop was initially conceptualized as a Half-Life 2 total conversion modification around five years ago when Nihad Nasupovic, the project lead, began developing its core maps and game play mechanics. Shortly after, Max Ramirez joined the team as the lead production artist for the project.

As the team behind Raindrop grew, unexpected issues began to surface. Despite its progress, Raindrop was discontinued as a modification due to a variety of technical and social setbacks. Development ceased due to the inability to balance work and life among the team, coupled with limitations inherent to the Source engine.

Until now.

Nihad Nasupovic and Max Ramirez have re-connected and revived the project, but in a new light. They started re-designing and prototyping a new and improved version of Raindrop. This time, after vigorous research and with some combined experience, they choose to use Unity3D as their desired game engine, while using Kickstarter to push Raindrop into the full time dream Nihad and Max have been striving for.

Raindrop has had some major aesthetic improvements since switching from Source to Unity3D. This versatile and powerful engine have allowed Nihad and Max to greatly increase the complexity of the environments without penalizing the overall performance of the game.

A great amount of time has been invested solely into researching and developing new and existing features that are being integrated into each build of the game. These features range from purely aesthetical enhancements, such as complicated wet surface shaders; to game mechanic improvements, such as hierarchical event triggers for puzzles and conditions.

Core Features:

• Full body dynamic animation system using Unity's Mecanim feature
• A dynamic weather, day and night environment cycle system
• A day and night environment cycle system
• Advanced enemy pathfinding and combat AI for realistic battles
• Physics, fluid, electrical, mechanical, and logic based puzzles
• Advanced item looting and customization system
• Weight and size based inventory system
• Procedurally generated item and enemy spawn locations
• Levels with drivable and interactive vehicles
• Unique and rare collectable weapons, tools and items
• A unique workshop system for object customization
• Dynamic ambient sound and soundtrack instances
• Interactive and fully immersible environments and objects
• A hands on, first-person experience with cinematic elements
• Short, action packed, first-person shootouts with a rare arsenal
• A deep and gritty horror story that follows different perspectives along a linear path with memorable experiences

There is activity (3D model upload, etc.) on the Facebook website, but no response on my question about any update. So maybe it is still alive…
