Gothic - Matt Chat

by Dhruin, 21:08

The latest Matt Chat video sees Matt Barton tackling Gothic:

It's Gothic time! Yes, finally, after countless requests, Matt Chat covers the 2001 German CRPG Gothic. Of course, this game launched a trilogy, and apparently Risen is keeping the lineage alive. Lots of fun stuff in this game, and some pioneering stuff like the ability to skin animals (you can even get their teeth and claws!), cook food (grilled chicken!), and much more. Plagued by one of the slowest starts in any CRPG, though, it hasn't attracted the attention that it really deserves. If you can get through the first 3-4 hours of it, you'll be hooked. Just don't blow all your ore at the swamp weed stand!

Gothic - Community Patch Input

by Dhruin, 12:46

Remember the unofficial/community patch for Gothic II from Ironkeep Studios we posted about a couple of weeks back?  Kostaz writes Ironkeep is looking to work on a patch for Gothic (I) and is asking for input:

So, we want to hear from you guys. What bugs, if any, have bothered you when playing Gothic 1? This is where you can let us know about it. Stuff to include might be AI/Pathfinding issues, rendering/graphics issues, script or code errors, errors/inconsistencies in the dialogue/texts etc. If you're having a problem, we'd like to hear about it. Even dialogue/text errors are acceptable.

Gothic - The Film

by Dhruin, 00:37

You may recall some time ago a fan project (with help from Piranha Bytes) that made a (German) feature-length movie of Gothic by compiling in-game movie clips and game dialogue to tell the entire plot.  World of Gothic has news of an English version that has been released - head over for the details and links.

Gothic: Movie and Texture patch released

by Sem, 16:54
Even though Gothic 1 is already years old that doesn't mean it has to collect dust on one of your shelves.

Freddy has released a special Texture Patch for Gothic 1. The patch replaces all textures from Gothic 1 with better high resolution textures from Gothic 2 and several custom-made textures. The patch has version 0.8 (a beta) because a few textures aren't final yet, but it allows you to enjoy the improved Gothic 1 looks before Gothic 3 is released.
The world patch that can be found on the same download page fixes several bugs from the original game, like the disappearing water near the swamp camp.

TMT Productions finished their Gothic 1 fan movie. The two hours long movie tells the complete story of Gothic 1 and was made with the help of Piranha Bytes, who made several new spoken dialogs for them. The movie can be downloaded in several resolutions.
