Thank you for taking on this project. While I may have cut my FPS teeth on Wolf3d back in the day, Blake Stone always holds a special place for me. It's really fun to be able to play it with more modern controls.

A few notes on the demo:
It looks like there was a missing object in level 2, I think the chests that sometimes spawn the squat brown aliens.

I sometimes had troubles with some of the Techs that turn hostile after speaking to them. I'd shoot them, they'd fall, then respawn, but able to move through furniture and invincible. The enclosed room on level one that resembles a break room, with a guard facing a vending machine is where I most easily noticed this behavior.

In Level 3 (I think) there is a room with plasma aliens and the + shaped panels that spawn them. The plasma aliens didn't respawn. Their movement behavior seemed much faster than I remember as well.

Pie in the sky moment: If I'm in a room with two techs, one hostile and one friendly, It'd be flippin' awesome if the friendly tech would shoot at the hostile one, after the hostile begins attacking the player. It'd be complicated behavior to code im sure, for it would make sense for the friendly tech to maintain cover if there are any higher level baddies in the area, and I know it wasn't in the old game. It would be a sweet bit of immersion though, don't you think?

Goddamn, this looks fun from the vids. I'm gonna wait until it's stable, though.

Hmm, that bump is reasonable. Although it kinda needs some details on it especially his head and firearm. Replacing it into a neutron gun would be great.
