All the authorities gone after the Event. Your world almost collapsed. But if you have a big gun - you have a chance. Is your gun big enough to survive or even to conquer the state? You'll never know if you will not try. Grab some gasoline and ride the road!

What is it?

Gun Road is a top-down action with RPG-elements in a post-apocalyptic world. You will ride your vehicle through the living world trying to find your destiny, fighting enemies, trading stuff, helping (or betraying, meh) people. It's like a road movie with your own scenario.

Features?

  • Vehicles with different chassis (wheels, tracks, hovers, etc) and it's not just cosmetic feature
  • Big living world with no prescripted events - you can accidently turn the story to the opposite side
  • No stupid grinding quests!
  • No inflicted playstyle, no formal good/evil choises - just do what you want
  • Country divided by different factions and you can make fun of this - helping, killing, betraying or even ruling some of them
  • Online co-op missions

Well, why so...

..stupid feature / cheap graphics / bad english?

Well, because we've started development not so far ago but we want to show our game on the very early stage to gain feedback. You opinion is realy matters!

Who are the authors?

We are 'Bread Games' indie studio. At the moment there are just two of us. We have huge background in commercial gamedevelopment but now we want to make our indie game (and with no pixelart at all!)

Gun Road devlog - foliage

News

For someone who lives in the european forests area (as me) or in the asian steppes (as my artist) the word 'desert' means 'endless sands with no plants'. Sahara desert is the best example. Sahara looks like this:

sahara


So our desert level was made with Sahara in mind. Artist painted terrain with sand texture, added few rocks and our level looked like this:

screen 2


Well, it could be ok if our game took place in the Northern Africa... But our game is about the south of the US! I think guys from southern states laughed at this moment thinking 'that's not the desert, that's emptiness!'

At last, we've started to google references. In fact, we had to start from googling refs, but... you know... 'this is just test level, let's do this quick!'... And then you realize that your 'test level' is in production. We took the Mojave desert as our reference point:

mojave


Flowers, bushes, cactuses, even small trees! Joyfull colors and many forms of plants! Nothing common with Sahara. We've started to make foliage assets but it was too slow. Artist never did such 3d models. But we make Gun Road with UE 4, and UE 4 have great asset marketplace. Well, not so big as Unity, I suppose. Anyway, we've found a good pack and bought it. Remember our empty desert? Now it looks like this:

Electric poles are another part of our improvements. Bushes and cactuses are everywhere now, even in town:

The next step is turning static meshes into dynamic ones or even destructible. For example, we've added physics to cargo containers:

50


Now player can hit container, hear loud metallic sound and move it a bit. Big foliage assets will be turned to destructibles - cactuses will be smashable by wheels.

For just 12 bucks we've turned our desert to proper one. Of course there is still a lot of work - we need to repaint some parts of the terrain, add more foliage and so on. But at this we already able to produce very interesting in-game picture:

Foliage is a great way to make your game more interesting and pretty. It could be combined with different color effects and weather. Now we're experimenting with post-processing shaders. I love this one, I call it 'decay-shader':

tlen shader


I'm not sure it will be added to the production but it looks very interesting :-)

P.S.: We're still on Greenlight, please support us!

Gun Road: well, we're making a game...
