Blaze is a first person shooter action game using the DarkPlaces Engine. There may also be an extra model pack for some Doom engine(s) later. It is heavily inspired of Abuse, Doom and Quake series. The game environments will be sci-fi tech bases, alien hives, hell, etc.
I thought maybe it's easier to draw sprites for a 2D top down game. So I'll only need to draw the sprites from one direction.
At the moment there's a triangle that can be controlled and moved in 8 directions + jump, and shoot small squares.
I haven't completely decided on the movement. It could have controls like in FPS games.. WS: forward/backward, AD: strafe left/right and mouse for aiming/rotating the player, maybe the camera rotates too. Or 8 direction movement, but mouse can aim a crosshair anywhere, bullets/stuff would fly toward it.

S = spawn player
X = destroy player
A = shoot stuff
Arrow keys = move player
