Can anybody please make a FPS game following the story of the "Oblivion" movie where you play as 49th Jack Harper?
It will be good if you make it as a Source mod, but other enignes won't be bad, too.
There should be just 4 weapons: pistol, blaster, knife (or wrench?) and power grenades (all (except knife/wrench that weren't there) looking like in the film, the "power grenades" are the red batteries the bomb was made from.)
Thank you for your time.
-NTim.
P.S. A mod where you play as 35th Jack Harper (before the storyline) would be great!
P.P.S. It isn't necessary to change the HUD or other interface, unless you really want to.
P.P.P.S.I've got 32$ that will be divided between developers. Also, I keep the money in russian currency, so the number can change a bit depending on the exchange rate. You are also welcome to refuse to take the money: I could use some extra cash.
Idea closed. You can use it, but I no longer give money for it, neither helping with it.

Do you have any cash to give whoever makes this game for you? I have a sneaking suspicion that that would be the only reason someone would work on you idea instead of their own...

Please only reply if you want to take part in development or ask a question.

It's an unofficial mod, not a game. I don't think anybody will ever notice it on moddb to lawsuit us.
For example, nobody lawsuited a Skyrim mod that adds Harry Potter wands.
EDIT: I don't even think we will ever publish it at all...

The last guy who robbed a bank didn't get caught; does that mean you should too?

17 bucks USD. That's a great motivator...

If you don't agree, F-OFF! If it isn't a sarcasm (as 17$ are 564 RUB in russian currency), you are welcome. Also, I guess we just got additional 15$ as the development fundings.

I said, I DON'T THINK WE'LL EVER PUBLISH IT! Well, maybe later after asking the film creators.

Alright, I think we need:
Mappers
Modelers (including texturing)
Custom SWEP, SENT and SNPC makers
Voice Recorders

Everyone who wants to take part should watch the movie first.

This is a public forum; people can post whatever they want here. If you don't want them to, then post a job ad.

We are not attacking you; simply stating how we feel about the whole scenario.
$17 is not a good enough motivator to most people. And why would anyone want to work on a game which will never get released? The odds of even getting a reply from the film studio are slim at best. These are questions you need to answer, and yelling at people who show the slightest hint of criticism or concern isn't helping your case.

What's your role on the team?

Now that I see how most people react on it, I think I'll close the idea.

What would you do in the game? Besides fly around, repair droids and fight scavs? You got some story in mind? The movie story is kinda short and small to translate into a game. Better idea would be to apply Oblivion concept into a richer world and story.
