Russian DYOM Community

Recommended Posts

Lockharte

Hi, guys.

As somebody know, Russians also have DYOM community. We have 4 groups in VKontakte social network.

You can ask your questions in this topic.

Because, you know, I thought that Americans would like to know, what happens in Russian community.

How would you compare the effort and thought put into mission/storypacks of the Russian dyom community as to that of the gtaforums dyom community? When I began there were guys like Jimmy Leopard, Jackal, Matatatta, LnD, etc that created elaborate story based missions that took time to develop. A lot like BK90s, who I have a lot of respect for. Who are the innovators in the Russian DYOM community?

Santal and Tandem Untitled, for sure. they broke the boundaries of your common storytelling and designing to bring some of the best projects to the community, while also recognizing the fact that you don't need umpteen missions to tell a story - most of Santal's mission packs, for example, have less than 8 missions in them. also, the themes in their missions are very well thought out, and the stories they tell are insane (in a good way)

if you look at something a bit more grounded, Altermann should be among those names, at least for me. his projects are thrilling and exciting, and he almost singlehandedly gave a second life to the action genre which has been plagued by amateurs for years

Several other people brought new ideas to the table, like 'quick-time events' or efficient use of scripts in their missions

I've always enjoyed Santal missions that you translated. I felt like he possessed a unique form of story telling. I think I'll check out work from Tandem.

SatournFan is it possible that we will see more missions/storyline translations from designers like Santal and others from the Russian dyom. I've seen that there are a few collaborations that he's had with some others.

it's possible that I will translate a few more Russian projects a bit later this Summer, I actually wanted to do so last year and earlier this year. I did want to translate 'Squidward's Suicide' which is a very surreal experience, but the guy who made it, TheCrazyGamer, apparently decided to do it himself.

 

That is, of course, if there will be any demand. I know you're keen on seeing something new, considering your constant support and feedback etc., but overall there was not much discussion in the respective topics I created.

I've decided to give TheCrazyGamer's 'Squidward's Suicide' a shot. It's interesting enough from the title alone. I've also got a hold of an untranslated version of "Pasha?" a collaboration project. I'm always up for writing reviews if it helps.
