Even though I am a bit late on posting this about my game I have finally figured out the key parts to it all.
I looked upon all of my favourite games over the past that I kept going back to and thought why hasn’t another good sci- fi/ futuristic world been made? I loved the series of Dead Space, Mass Effect and Bioshock but with all of the games within the genre of sci-fi and Steampunk seemed to be swiped under the rug. So I thought I want to do a game like this that would really capture a great story and awesome gameplay.
My game is called, ‘A New Hope.’ Based off games I looked into such as Mass effect and Fallout all open world games that have captured all our hearts. I really wanted it to be a third/first person shooter however due to my lack of knowledge of coding I cannot produce something of that scale. I will be using the Game Maker for now but will probably look at both avenues for a part to state if it was to go to that scale. I wanted it to be for all platforms but for now just PC but it will have capability to work with a controller… I hope. This will also be targeted at an MA15+ rating as there will be shooting and blood… Spoiler!
The game is set in the year of 2082, when all of Earth’s resources are beginning to die. The Earth’s population is becoming smaller as the waste land became survival of the fittest. (I thought as a second game to defiantly use the wasteland as a good DLC or second side to the story after the first game) NASA had retrieved information of life from a planet not so far away within their system. They formed a small team of five to go find the planet to hopefully be Earth’s new Hope.
The main character you play as is Marcus Gorden, a Special Forces Pilot that suffered a major blow to his right eye and forehead that had to be replaced and built in robot layers. (Yes he has a robotic eye because I think that is sick) Marcus is accompanied by Captain Victor Ford, Doctor Laura Smith, Engineer Scott Shorten and Wilson the Robot helper.
Sadly due to my short skills in drawing I hope to make up for it in music and writing while I am still trying to track down someone to draw my characters for me and my main cover. If this does not work out I will have to try my hardest at drawing my cover at least.
Please comment and tell me what you think about my game so far or any help would be awesome!
