Blaze is a sci-fi first person shooter action game. It's about shooting a lot of alien mutants in semi-randomized missions. The alien mutants are trying capture all your base, and have already captured at least half of it. You have to defend your base and capture the alien controlled areas back.

Doomed Chocolates

The project changed to use a modified Chocolate-Doom engine a while ago. More possibility for lots of action without framerate going too low. The game palette gets actually used in everything. Using C instead of QuakeC to do the gameplay allows more control how it plays, but I'm not exactly an engine programmer, so some difficult to do features might not be there.

The Aliens Again?

Aliens 2 - Mod DB

Player got a night vision mode, which turns everything green and boosts the lightlevel. It uses some energy. Running use the same energy too. The movement speeds can go through some changes. The default move speed is supposed to be run, and the faster speed is meant to be powerup type running. There's air control and player can jump pretty high.

Player has 4 of the previous weapons improved/redesigned. Other weapons going to get the same treatment. I've made the weapons possible to reload in the models. Reload feature is not yet in game. It may be an option or part of a higher difficulty level. Player takes no damage from his own weapons, but it could be another difficulty level setting.

The difficulty level settings may be customizable, so you could play some serious realistic game with fewer difficult monsters or some brainless fun with tons of easy monsters, or some ultra hardcore mode with every setting turned to the max + 1.

Multi-Color Pyramids

New Stuffs Multi Color

Trained Aliens New Stuffs

New Stuffs New Stuffs

The things can be over/under each other without any problems. Including making some crazy pyramids out of them. There is probably no limit how many can be piled.

Weapon damage can now do Z thrust. So, you can teach them the superman!

The game also runs at 40 tics per second. 35 ticrate of Doom has always felt a little strange.

I ran the "Random Mission Testing" video/demo with timedemo with 4 different GLSL shader settings on my laptop and old computer. I used 1280x720 resolution on both computers, and water reflections/refractions were disabled.

Laptop Results, min/avg/max fps:
No GLSL shader: 137 260 605
16 color shader: 136 259 518
32 color shader: 136 247 514
Posterize shader: 139 264 571

Old Computer Results, min/avg/max fps:
No GLSL shader: 94 200 486
16 color shader: 92 173 387
32 color shader: 69 138 387
Posterize shader: 95 198 474

The laptop was kinda high-end laptop 4 years ago, and the old computer was some medium/high-end some 8-10 years ago. Trying to play with older than that is probably not going to work smooth.

The new graphics look great, however I loved the way the Doom graphics looked also. I am conflicted.

By the way the aliens remind me the ones that were in this classic DOS game called "Abuse". Have you ever played it? If not you should check it out.

If I am not mistaken Abuse was the first 2D shooter game that featured free targeting system that uses both keyboard and mouse. I played it for hours back then. Fun game.
And it is great that it is an inspiration for you and it really shows.

It is always nice to see some good old Doom-like gameplay.
I will keep an eye on this.
