Nanoshooter is first and for most a networking experiment. We wanted to prove to ourselves we could make a working online game in blender. The results were promising enough that we went ahead and made it into a playable game.
Nanoshooter consists of 2 playable levels, a basic menu system, and the server script used to host games. In the menu you can connect to any IP you wish, or play offline.
As this wasn’t meant to be a full game, we are releasing it as open source. Feel free to pick at it and try to learn what you can from it, and even create your own content. The .blends are available, and I have created a couple simple ReadMes that should help blender users create their own levels, or host on their own servers.
There is only 1 game type, free for all, and the rounds last 6 minutes (this is changeable according to the server). The two maps are completely different graphically to prove the game is somewhat flexible.
The first map is the official Nanoshooter level: Bridge
The second map is taken directly from one of my favorite failed games. Project Fish Duck. The map is unchanged from PFD to Nanoshooter, and still goes by it’s old name: Cove
Nanoshooter’s main server will be up as often as possible, to give you all a chance to try it. There are no bots, so if you are the only player on, there will be nothing to do but explore. I would suggest going on #gameblender or the new #nanoshooter irc channel to find another person to play with so you can enjoy the game. I have finished a python based bot, that stays in the IRC channel #nanoshooter to provide some assistance to users.
This is a free web based IRC client you can use to access those channels: http://webchat.freenode.net/ Hope to see some of you online.
