The single player version of Virtual Earth Online is now available and ready for player testing. The game is called Orc Island and is online as a developers access version

Orc Island


Ever fantasize about being stranded on a deserted island and how you would cope? Orc Island is the closest to the experience without getting your feet wet.

The game starts as you are washed ashore on a tropical island. A rock is your only tool and you have to explore the island and scavenge for resources just to get you through your first day. Competing for food with other wildlife on the Island you have to harvest wild crops so you can start your own farming. Mining for resources and creating tools are your next challenge.


The hunting and fishing in Orc Island are great games within themselves. The night time scenes are stunning with wild Orc’s roaming the island in search of food or you, whatever they find first.


Multi Orcs


Hut


This is the creature I am working on. He will be friendly and will help in the game for food.

gronk


I’m thinking of calling him Gronk. All he ever says is “Gronk” but in different tones.

Hack Orc Island....

You will see there are some RAW files in the Orc Island folder on your C: drive. These files are used to generate the island.

The raw files are 1024 x 1024 in size. They represent the height of the Island. White is high and black is low.

If you change these files you can create your own Island. Simply use a program like Photoshop and alter the images.

When you run Orc Island, click “Reset Map” an a new island will be generated using the height data in the raw files.
