I recently entered a speedgame comp and decided to use the Blender GE…The comp ran over two weeks…but I was finishing off art on another game, so I only had 10 days to get an entry ready.
This small game is the result. I know it is not much…but I am impressed with what I got done in so little time.(with no credit to me…but to the Blender GE for the speed you can develop at)
Everything was done from scratch…and the day before I had to enter, I realised the textures I used was not allowed…so I had to redo all the art on the last day…stressssss!:yes:
The game is set in the future where time travel is possible. The player works for a company called Important Events Control. IEC monitors Time Beacons…devices that continually compares data accumilated from the past with present data. If inconsistencies arrise, it is IEC’s responsibility to sort it out.
A known criminal orginisation has intercepted the letter Paul sent to Galatia. It is your responsibility to retrieve the letter and correct any data inconsistencies caused by them.
RUNNING THE GAME
Well im not sure exactly what your computer specs need to be…but you do need to be able to use GLSL and have a decent spec comp!
File is about 8mb
I used Anrew101’s great mouse theory tutorials to learn from, to create the rotation for the player…I am still learning python…so other than the tiny bit of python for the player…99.9 % is logic bricks…
Last thing…it is best to run the game as an exe. in window mode …then the interface I made frames the game!..otherwise you can see beyond where you supose to be able to see…and you do have an advantage over the enemies…and with so litle time…and all done in Logic Bricks…The AI is not that smart…:no:
All feedback is very welcome…
