"Besides all this internal stuff, we have been giving SOF a serious overhaul. Almost all the monsters and weapons have been redone, we've storyboarded the .cins, sfx work and modeling is underway (and kicking ass I might add), and it looks as if I may finally get to start on textures one of these days. Overall, things are looking better than ever. It's true that q2 set us back a lot more than we expected; but what didn't kill us made us stronger, and SOF looks to be better than we had ever imagined. Thanks for sticking with us--we hope to impress you with our efforts."
The Coven was an independent computer games developer with its roots in the Doom and Quake communities. Originally founded by John "Gestalt" Bye in late 1996, The Coven worked on a free Doom II add-on before moving on to Quake and going commercial in the summer of 1997. The Coven was closed in the winter of 1999, and all their work is now available for free.
