PTMC Incident by DerMonkey PTMC Incident by DerMonkey
some more retro :> continued on the leap piece. i'm enjoying my first free days since ages (at least that's how it feels). just bumming arround and paint ;P

does anyone still remember the pc game 'descent'? [link]
one of the first games i've ever had- i loved it! more than a decade later i rediscovered it and actually understood the story... my english wasn't that good when i was 12 lol
anyhow, the post-terran-mining coorporation PTMC runs mines across the solar system. someday, later refered to "the PTMC-Incident", the mining robots are assimilated by an alien virus, going beserk. they kill the miners or take them hostage, and taking over the control. (the player is then sent into the mines, to kill the robots, rescue hostages and destroy every mine in the solar system.)

so he is one of the miners, right after the PTMC-incident on mars. he's lucky and isn't caught by the robots. armed with his drill and his mininglaser, he tries to reach the cargo-ships, which haven't been taken over yet. he's gotta hurry, they'll be leaving soon!

cheers! when i played the game for the first time i actually got dizzy, because no game had featured a real 3d-environment till this point- and those levels... lets just say one shouldn't be afraid of heights :D

You should make another picture of a miner's unfortunate encounter with an alien infected bot though. That would be super kewl.

Awesome ! ^^ Do i see chromatic aberrations at some borders ? Thats really great, even the DOF is greatly done. I also liked Descend (1 and 2 ^^, both great games. I was so glad when i got the cheats and could try all those nifty weapons)

Cheers Chubaso

What a nice use of contrast and focus. You can feel him descend through the chilly atmosphere
sure to approach the incendiary depth below.... a hair-trigger away from certain ambush.

Our hero investigates the wreckage, having made his sortie, yet unaware of the carnage he'll encounter....

Oh my... I am AWESTRUCK! This is amazing! The smoothness of the shading and the colour... I mean the lightning around the edges of the spaceship flying off give it an amazing aspect of sharpness and detail.
Overall, excellent work here!
