Hey everyone. Nice website. Well hello. I grew up playing RE2. And have very fond memories of PS1/PS2 and Gamecube RE games. I own Remake,RE0,RE2,RE3,RECV and RE4 - All on gamecube disc. My prized collection. I also have the RE1 DS game. Some books including the 300 page archive book.


I should also mention (and this part is pretty sweet) I'm 7-9 months into developing my own fixed camera, prerendered background survival-horror game, under the studio name FoundationsofPause. It's very much in the style of the REmake and RE2. It  has its own unquie storyline, location and characters. It will focus on puzzles and will reward SPEEDRUNS. It's 2 chapters, 1 main character per chapter. Takes place in a forest near a mid western town. Hmmm that sounds like Resident Evil? Progress is going and the game is really coming together, we should have some gameplay footage within 6 months. Although we're still short staffed and are still looking for an additional programmer. I'm doing the artwork and writing.

Here's a work in progress thread here if it interests you, I'll take any and all support.


There's some concept art videos and more info here:

Welcome to CHE, my friend.

I just had a look at your concept art video and I can only say: wow! Looks really nice. Good to see that Survival Horror isn't dead. It just needs to get away from Capcom , it seems :-)

How long did that take you to do? Looks like a lot of work to me.

Making a game is 1000s and 1000s of hours of work. But I'm willing to do. I wanna kick Capcom in the teeth. I love RE4 but the new ones are so misguided and lost. It pains me to see the series in this state.


And that's how I came about making the game I O U

Happy gaming.

Wonderful to have you in residence here. Your Resident Evil passion mirrors my own, with REmake and Resident Evil 2 & 3 being the absolute pinnacle of survival horror magnificence for me. I would be supportive in featuring more of your artistry here, and I will message you regarding featuring some more development videos in our News and/or Video section. Thanks for sharing, you & the team have done a commendable job so far, and are well on your way to creating the type of experience that Resident Evil has been lacking since Dead Aim.

Hey again you Crimson heads. Some new renders. Gameplay and animations are underway. We got some interesting hit detection and zombie path finding in the works. Been working on the concepts maps now I'm heading back to more modeling/texturing of the backgrounds.


At moment I've map 49 designs maps (think of a visual player's guide, not ingame player maps) Armed with these I'm ready to start making more progress on the 3d world models.

My thoughts entirely. There have been some tremendous fan created projects, from remakes of the iconic older games, like Resident Evil Behind The Mask, to original scripted Raccoon City narratives, like Notes From Raccoon City, but many often fall by the wayside. I do hope IOU falls into the catagory of the aforementioned that have, or are well on their way to sucessful completion. These screens look fantastic, and I would like Crimson Head Elder to be at the forefront of IOU's promotion.


I will be moving this thread to a new section of the CHE Forum, devoted to fan created Resident Evil & Survival Horror films & video games.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, and for moving the thread, George. Woo new section. I'm into the Crimson Head promotion offer. Stay tuned. (: Yes, there are many fan projects out there. Feels like every month I find a new one. Teammates and myself agree the problem with these fan projects are 2 things:  (but not limited to)


1. The license infringement. Even distributed for free it'll still show up on Capcom's radar at some point. And ususally its never a positive for the project.


2. They make a flashy trailer which is largely lying about the state of their project. The view counts on these are pretty huge.


We aren't going to give up easy. The project has already had its fair share of hickups we overcame. I started this project by myself during April/May 2012. Now the team is around 3-10+ people.

Those screens feel like they will serve classic survival horror very well, and with the two recent games that Capcom now have planned for the series, this could now be the perfect time for such a fan created project.

Thanks Marcus. You would love it here. We have a multi level lab and guess what? Bathrooms. A whole lot of bathrooms. Dropping by to show a new location I've added.

Hey Crimson Heads. We're nearing a first playable. April is some form of deadline. Will report back before then.

For shits and giggles I started texturing the RE1 Lobby model. I got fairly close to REmake quality without much trouble. Going to keep adding to it. Of course this is not for the IOU project. Just something for fun. The shaders and textures can be carried over. All rendered by me

I messaged MIXED_HERB about this. It would suck big time if yet another fan made project inspired by survival horror, the genre abandoned by Capcom, fell by the wayside.
