A man without memory of who he is or what is going on around him must face a dystopian world set in the relative future. As the only survivor from an over-run security bunker, he must face a ravaged world populated by death-bringing machines and suboptimal atmospheric conditions. As he wanders the ruins of a large city he is totally alone... or is he? Can he discover what the source of the devastation is.. and, more importantly, discover his own identity? This is the story of what follows.

Hello Everyone!

I am pleased to announce that I finally made the switch to UE4 a few months ago!

Since the September update I have been busy remastering all of the old objects and art, updating both the textures and the models as well.

Here's is a small glimpse of some of the remastered models:

Aside from that, I've been working heavily on remaking the physics interaction to include smoother, more polished controls, including the ability to rotate objects:

Switching to UE4 has opened many new possibilities thanks to its powerful visual scripting system. As such, I'll be able to add many features that I'd been wanting but were difficult to put together in UDK.

For example, I've already been able to add a few new mechanics/elements such as a lean/peek system and DDoF (dynamic depth of field). I'm also in the process of remaking the levels to be more detailed/atmospheric.

There's still a long way to go... but it's going to be worth it ;)

I can always use feedback, so please leave a comment about any questions/concerns that you may have!

Until Next Time,

Voice acting sounds quite professional for an alleged one-man effort.

I swear I sent you a reply to this before? Anyways, The crowd sound of children screaming was a recording of kids playing around a fountain that I got while in Italy. As for the PA System lady, she was synthesized by me. There are only a few time's I've used royalty free sounds: The people screaming in G.R.I.T. Trailer 1 for example :) I was responding to you from my phone earlier, and I thought I had posted directly here unless I am mistaken? Sorry about that!

I'm glad you are interested in it ^_^ It's going to have an emphasis on exploration and some ties to the traditional fps later on in the game. The first part, while in the bunker, I like to consider more like amnesia in the sense that it is just you, a flashlight, and your ability to analyze your environment :) The second part in the main city will start you off with an ineffective stun gun-type gameplay. The stun gun is not very useful in combat, and is directed more towards puzzle solving and stealth-based combat. As you progress, you will eventually get things such as makeshift guns and some nice pre-disaster weapons. However, there will always be a less-vhazardous way to deal with most situations ;)

Thanks! I Appreciate the kind words. Most of the game is going to take place in a city. The bunker is just the starting area :) If you have any questions, feel free to create a thread on the G.R.I.T. Forums.
