Kitchen Sink Released!!!

Brvtvs a posted 20 hours ago


The first version of Kitchen Sink has been released! You can connect now through the portal in the Horde lobby or using the IP ks.gl

Kitchen Sink is a silly, fast-paced Minecraft minigame where players compete in matches. Players can break any block in the map and throw it at their opponents to do damage and dismantle the world around them.


This is a first version of Kitchen Sink. There are currently only two gametypes/maps and a lot of features yet to be added. However, we will be working like crazy to release tons of stuff in the near future. To be boring for a second, most of the hard work is behind us. We took our time making a minigame engine and networking infrastructure that really is top-notch.

What that means for cool people is that adding tons of new stuff is a lot easier than it was to get to this point (and much easier than it was on Horde). New maps, gametypes, and features will be coming out soon.

Here are some things that are super-high priority (will be released very soon):
  • A third Kitchen Sink gametype
  • More maps
  • An interactive tutorial
  • More Hero rewards


Here is some things that are high priority (will be released soon):

  • Classes and skills
  • Experience and progression
  • Parties and other social features
  • Probably a website (so I can post about kitchen sink somewhere other than here)
  • Tons more stuff
  • More Hero rewards


I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to all of that. This project so far has been a lot of fun and a lot of very hard work. It is a labor of love and I really hope you will all enjoy it.

Remember, to connect the IP is ks.gl. See you all in game!

A Sunk Kitchen

Yay! The first version of the new gametype has a release date, which is ambiguously "this weekend". That new gametype is Kitchen Sink. Some of you may know what that is, many probably do not.

Kitchen Sink is a silly, fast-paced Minecraft minigame where players compete in matches. Players can break any block in the map and throw it at their opponents to do damage and dismantle the world around them.

While we are releasing a first version, Kitchen Sink is still under active development and there will be tons and tons of new stuff added constantly over the next few months.

Kitchen Sink will be accessible through a portal in Horde's spawn and through the IP ks.gl

I hope to see you all there!

A Long Awaited Update

I do not know how many people still visit this site, but here is an update on what has been going on.


Update:

First off, I am not dead. For those of you who do not know who I am, I am Brutus. I founded, developed, and administrated Horde since its inception. In the last several months, due to personal and other real-life issues, I have been mostly inactive.

I am around a bit more now, but unfortunately Horde development is not going to progress much further. I will continue to maintain it as I always have. However, for a variety of reasons, Horde is not likely to see major changes or additions. I will not get into all of the details, but here is a short list of some of the important things keeping me from making big changes to Horde:

  1. The updated Minecraft EULA and legal concerns.

  2. I do not have much creative inspiration to work on Horde after all this time and the thousands of hours I have spent on it.

  3. I have other things taking up my limited time, including some new projects.

  4. Horde is extremely old. It is highly developed and mature. While I am sure more could be added, I am very happy with where the gameplay stands now.

    Additionally, Horde is a rickety old project that is almost impossible to keep working with and expanding. It is a little bit complex why that is, but major additions to Horde would be kind of like trying to build a palace on top of a Jenga tower.


On a side note, there was a technical problem which broke the IP horde.nl-mc.com for a while and made it so players could not connect using that IP. It took me forever to figure out what the issue was, but it should be fixed within about 24 hours of this posting. I apologize for that issue and any inconvenience it may have caused.



New Projects?!?!??!?

Yes, though it has been a few years since I released a new gametype, one is coming, and coming pretty soon. I cannot release details yet, but I am very much looking forward to it. I can say these few things:

  • It is entirely unique.
  • You will be able to access it from the Zombie Horde server, at least at first.
  • So far feedback has been very positive and it seems like a lot of fun. I hope to see you all there!



Conclusion

So, there will be some new stuff coming out. Our community site will likely be revived and there may be a new influx of players. Sounds like exciting times are coming. Thank you to everyone who has ever enjoyed one of my projects and thank you to everyone who supports them directly.


Sincerely,

- Brutus.
