The Reason for a 3D Remake was, that we want to learn more about the engines capabilitys ( by the way, the times that 3d gamestudion could only do indoors is over, you can to large outsideworlds and MMO?s too. The new version 8 ( comming soon) is as powerfull as most other 3D engines).
Were planing an own Adventure with own story and so on, and it could be a commercial project but we had to test the whole system we a Programming ( A scumm like thing we call G.A.S. = Gamestudio Adventure System) to make 3D Adventures.
The Goal is a Tool to create 3D adventures just like scumm was for 2D.
By now we can add many many things to an object, just by choosing the action from a list and then configure its special behavior with a few buttens and nummeric or Text enteries.
For example: We want an 3D object like a door to work, we just add the usage protokol "DOOR" to it and type in the 2 rooms it should connect. We also can type in, what discription is displayed when the courser moves over it, and we can enter as many lines of text we want for the player to say wenn he trys to Look at it or oben it or what ever. We can simply give the door a state like open or close and what key or other force is needet to open it, and so on and so on...
All that by just pushing a few buttons an make a few text enteries, and all that in an engine that never was ment to be one for adventures. We have a system for Audio Speech too. ( Yes the Remake will have speech Wink
You see the Maniac Mansion 3D thing ist just a homework for us, so we dont give it the full power of grafix and so on, becouse its a fangame. For the Commercial game that were Planing the Grafix, sounds and fetures will ne much better and more modern. For me in Person it was the ANKH series and Jack Keane that made me accept that 3D adventures could work if the team that produce it, loves the work and dont just want to make fast money. ( Monkey 4 was such a game that ruined a whole series just couse it has to be in 3d befor the time was right for that. )
Enough Written  Grin       I Love Adventures, i love to work on 3D models and im a hugh Maniac Mansion Fan

Hi my name is Ernie from Vampyre Games and one of the founders of the Maniac Mansion Remake called "Meteor Mess 3D".
As Great Lucasfilm Adventure fan and as fan of Loom, i had to test your tech demo and i am very impressed how perfectly the "LOOM FEELING" is even in this demo.
I always liked the looks and feel of the original and guess what: I spended 50 euros after i played your demo to get the original again, from ebay Wink       ( now i only need 4 other original first release lucafilm Adventure games and my collection is complete  Grin  )
The new system with the gloves feels strage at first but so did the music thingy in the original, when i played it the first time, and now i love it.
The tutorial is cool and with the black backround it remindes me a littelbit on the intro from Simon 1.
All in all i think your game will be a great one.

Regards Ernie
