Last time I checked, Nick Fury didn't look like this.

Just stopping by to let you know that it's been a month since that screenshot was posted. I'm starting to get impatient. In fact, I think my patience has run completely out. If I don't see something new by tomorrow, I will have no choice but to sit at my TV and watch movies, like what I mostly do already. A harsh ultimatum to be sure, but it may just be what the team needs to pull through in the clutch.

Katie: Numbers is threatening to return to a lifestyle that he already has if we don't show any updates! What do we do?!

Cesar: Dammit Weldon, work harder!

Weldon: *meekly* Yes sir.

If it is any encouragement, I still love you guys for generously providing such an awesome game, and I have faith you all will release the next episode :) I am so looking forward to the next episode -- I know it will be so much fun^_^ I've even been planning to replay the first four episodes before trying the fifth once it is available.

What's really unfair is Erica Reed somehow already downloaded episode 5 on her phone!

Guess she had Terrance hack Phoenix Online Studios...

While I wait for episode 5 to finish, I am developing my own game similar to the silver lining only it is a point and click adventure survival horror game. Totally inspired by Phoenix to use Unity without knowing anything about game development, but I already have inventory, dialogue, and shooting worked out, but creating a save/load is a lot tougher than I thought. Probably just save scene levels completed instead.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fxk8Ak_wJR0 here's a small video if you want to know what it looks like. It is about zombies, but mostly puzzle solving silver lining style.

I'm just going to see whether I finish my game first or Phoenix does, I'll be sure to let you guys play it if I get it done.

Hi, cheruibm. That's pretty cool that we inspired you to make your own game. I know saving and loading games is a challenging aspect of development. Good luck, and keep us posted!

I'm curious - what resources are you using? That looks pretty professional for someone who knows nothing about game development!

Thanks Snabbott! Yeah, I can do some of the modeling, animation, and coding myself, but most of it comes from the Unity asset store. I did the inventory system myself with some help. I use UFPS for the shooting part and movement. Most of the 3d models and animation are made by others, although I plan to make some of my own. The Dialogue System is what I use for chatting with NPC. I have no voice acting though, but after modifying other people's code for my game I can see how The Silver Lining was made, except I don't hire people and just get assets from the asset store.

Le't get back to the task at hand shall we. cherubim: That game doesn't even look like the silverlining so it doesn't belong in this topic.

So, without further ado I remember reading last month in the news section that the silver lining episode 5 is still being developed in the process an was wondering when will it be completed. I remember reading, I can't give the game to you yet so that means its close or near completion :). Don't let us down TSL Team.

I think it is just the properties of the TSL episode 5 build. It'll be interesting to see how many fans are still eagerly waiting.

I feel despair. I feel it's put on hold indefinitely an won't come to fruition. Oh please I'd love to finish the game. It has brought great joy to my heart.

FFS! >:( Did you not see the pictures?! They're working on it, man!

Remember: Volunteer project! They have other games that are taking priority right now, why? Because they. Make. Money! Which, ya know, they kinda NEED to keep their company going so they can release TSL in the first place?!

I'm sorry, but I'm just SICK of seeing this! People whining and complaining, "WE WANT IT NOW BUT YOU'VE BETRAYED US SO WE'RE GONNA KEEP MAKING POSTS ABOUT IT AND SAY YOU'VE GIVEN UP AND TELLING YOU TO HURRY UP WHEN WE SHOULD KNOW OTHER STUFF IS TAKING PRIORITY AND WE CANNOT BE BOTHERED TO READ POSTS BY MODS EXPLAINING WHAT IS GOING ON BECAUSE MOST OF US POST MAYBE ONCE TO WHINE AND NEVER COME BACK!"

And you know what that does? It brings down encouragement to work on the episode and drives people away because that's all you guys talk about now, and nobody listens!!
