I am looking for a small hand full of artists that are willing to work on a project. Right now the project is just a blank slate. Mainly due to the fact I am not a 2d or 3d artist. Before any programmers sign up please realize this is NOT a Blender project. Everything but the programming side can be done in blender and converted to a working format. This is going to be a browser based game that is being developed with
Who is needed
Sound Effects Engineer(s)
Technologies that are being used
- = C3DL is subjected to change.
If you do not know what WebGL, then you must google it. It allows 3d in WebGL Enabled browsers. If you are viewing this in IE, just forget it, not till IE9 will you be able to view it. This will also use the C3DL engine for rapid game development. WebGL is just starting to get on its feet and with in a couple years will be brought to its fruitfulness with the new browsers being able to run it just fine. I know that this is a blender forum and this is not exactly a blender project. It will be using blender technologies so it still is partially a blender project. Just I am not going to use bge to develop the project.
Now, about the project.
Download and review the Game Design Document for more details about the game.
Game Theme: Steam Punk style, Diablo Meets Fallout.
The project is a simple one. I want to make a single player diablo styled game. Using the top view and such but a non demonic based game. The game is set on mars some thousands of years past today. Earth is a molten ball of fire due to the sun that has super nova’ed into a white dwarf. Mars is now hospitable and is completely terraformed.
There is alot more detail to the story than this I just do not want to go into great detail on a public forum. Right now I have a few whiteboard “maps” laid out but nothing serious as far as graphics. Below is a basic farm layout and is where the start of the story takes place. The main characters are Three brothers and a Sister who own a farm and have one farm hand. They are basic crop farmers and nothing more till an event happens that the sister is killed and two of the brothers are injured by a gang which is apart of a larger organization. There is a detailed story that me and a friend are working on which is currently being transcribed.
We will be working via Dropbox for project files. Each member will get access to their own folder as not to conflict with any other member. Also you can email me your Dropbox so I may set you up in my folder. More detail will be added as it is completed or available. Also note that no one will actually be considered for the team until the first contribution. Any files contributed remain yours to use how you will but may or may not be used in this game how ever seen fit.
Its roughly 20,000 years past mars terraformation which is probably 3.5 million years after today. If you know anything about the sun and its activity you will know that earth will be inhospitable in that time frame because of the suns activity. Now when people left from earth they got everything they could, plants, animals, and as many humans as they could. Mars is 100% hospitable with no terradomes required so that means you can roam freely the only problem is space. You take a planet the size of earth and put it on something about a 1/3rd of its size and it becomes severely overpopulated. This all is realized about a few thousand years after they terraformed which is what they use as a time system now, 0 at = when the planet became terra formed then about 50 at is when they fully colonized Mars(New Terra) about 250 at is when mars name changed, and around 870 at is when over population was seriously bad. The New Terra Goverments decided another planet had to be terraformed and the entire population cant go to the new planet. A few thousand years later they found and terraformed a new planet. About 3670 AT they in-acted a “ticket” system that only people who could afford to go were able to. So only the wealthy and people who could benefit them left while all the criminals and poor got left behind to do as they please. When everyone left again they destroyed almost all technology when they left. Anything anyone could use to leave this planet and trace back to them. In essential New Terra became a wild wild west Australia. Every so often the NEW new terra would send off their criminals to the Old New Terra(where the story takes place) in a drop pods across space. They would reach safely on New Terra but once their they had to either live off the land or live off others. When things settled down after the riots and feudal wars that happened for a few thousand years the world kinda of fell into a co-existence. There was a new order, but not a goverment, that controlled a few gangs and such but basically if you had something they wanted and could not get it from you cheap they ended up sending a gang to kill you and steal it. The order grew because of the criminals that came down every so often with various technology and education.
Now about the initial storyline/game.
In the game you get to pick one of 4 or 5 characters. I have not decided on the sister yet. You do how ever get to pick between three brothers and a farm hand who was from a drop pod. The brothers own a farm and tend to the crops and various animals with their sister. When you start the game as a brother this brother is off selling the latest crops/livestock they gathered and thats when the shit hits the fan so to speak. If you pick the farm hard you get right into action. The brothers is kind of for newbies and the farm hand is more or less going to be a hard mode I think. Since he will be branded in a fashion that people know that he is from a drop pod. A barcode or scar or something that is common with drop pod criminals. The dialog changes per brother and farm hand so people will react differently, and so will events based on which one you pick. Each character as in most diablo fashion games have different skills and traits. The only difference in this game is that it has guns and semi-futuristic weapons. Not to many lasers or anything like that, most of that technology was destroyed, although some was salvaged and some was made from the DPC(drop pod criminals). All of which is expensive and such. We have the first few bits of the farm hand story laid out and some of his quests as well as when one of the brothers join up. Thats also one thing. After you reach so far in the game one of the brothers(the one that was out) ends up joining along as a companion. The main group of bad guys at the beginning are called the “.45’ers”. A small sect of them are responsible for the sisters death, and the beating the two brothers that were at the farm got. The farm hand managed to save them since he was out in the fields at the time but saw the gang ride up and managed to sneak up on the house and based on if you pick him or not, managed to save them or wait till they are gone.
Well here is an update of my game. I am using a model I snagged online as a player model. The duplicate model to the top left is at 0,0,0 and spinning as a reference point. The interface is actually done in HTML/CSS with no images. Yes that is a custom font. Oh also this is all done in a web browser, for those that did not know. I will soon be getting this online so anyone can see it.
Well not much has changed, worked more on the Mouse movement code, and ripped out the center model for XYZ axis. Showing some of the debug information that I am using. I just wanted to throw this in to keep updates coming. It will be removed on the next major update
Just showing off two new features, Zoom and Pause.
