A humoristic game inspired by the Jig-Ai album
The Original idea was to do a crazy, humoristic and comically bloody game
based on inspiration that I and my buddy (Megalover) got from the Jig-Ai album
Katana Orgy (I strongly advise you to not google it if you don't appreciate drawn
erotic gore) which is basically a grindcore album with a Japanese gore theme.
There were 2 aims: To create a crazy, short story-based game with tongue-in-cheek
humour and a crazy backplot, and to learn to do stuff with the Quake/Darkplaces Engine.
We aimed to create a couple of levels, a story about Alien Samurai Lumberjacks going to
Earth to chop off some bought forests (but getting fended off by a group of ecologically
oriented clones, AKA Economically Headed Liberation Coalition) and intense amounts
of cheap GFX, oldschool action and crazy weapons, such as the Katana Chainsaw, the
Burning Human Fat Thrower, Bone Launcher and the MEGABASS. See a pattern? One idea was to
use the intense amount of gore as collectable resources.
However, at some point during development, after I had completed the weapons, and some basic
enemies, I decided to make it a wave-based shooter, that possibly holds the same generic
backplot (maybe it'll turn more serious over time or just not noticeable.) You still are Aliens,
and you will still (probably) be shooting clones, their commanders and other stuff.
It is ugly now; as it was intended to be initially. I really didn't spend much time on it initially because
we wanted it to look cheap. However, I will most likely be improving the
graphics in due time. The aim, now is for it to be a game design exercise/project and getting acquaintanced
with the Darkplaces engine.
I am using GPL stuff as the base for the project. I am using Openquartz, the GPL data for Quake1, Darkplaces
a GPL quake engine and the 1.01 QuakeC-code that is under the GPL. I will also release everything I make under
the GPL (excepting certain stuff, such as the maptextures; not all of the maptextures are mine and they are
released under varied licenses, but I will make a file that lists all the textures etc. that are not mine or
Firstly, for those of you watching (you perverts) this project hasn't yet gone to the grinder. We are merely cutting game development sessions and other stuff down to appreciable sizes. This means that we'll continue it when we have the time. Getting setbacked by various technical difficulties and real-life stuffs really doesn't do good for the development of any project (or sacrilege such as this.) We are not balancing on the tip of a razor blade by any means, though. We have ideas for the next version and I've decided not to release a new version until we have a few new enemies, a weapon or two, and maybe a new map. Also we need to do more on the engine-code side to get everything implemented as hoped.
Secondly, I did remix the song used in the Chinatown level, "Decoration With A Chainsaw". For some reason, on my Windows binary the song doesn't work (but that may be due to Wine and not the binary itself. I am on Linux for the time being.) So those of you who (potentially) missed the song, here it is, with an extra layer of cheap, hellish and insanity added. Next up is a Team Fortress 2 remix. (not really)
Thirdly, If anyone is so crazy, or depraved of fun, then mail me or PM me and we'll do some multiplayer testing. Some preliminary testings suggests there should be no problems, but I want to try more.
Ohh, also if you are ecologically headed (don't read if you can't take a joke): Read this. Ienhance.com
The evils of shaving pubic hair are apparent. I am going to do my part in saving phthirus pubis by implementing these critters into our game.
(No, not really, this was a crude joke somewhat fitting in the theme about the somewhat funny fact that the pubic louse is, fortunately, dying off because humans now have a trend of shaving their pubic hair. I really don't get a hard-on over pubic lice. Really.)
