Seventh Crystal Of Theia (SCOT) is an epic adventure/puzzle game with action and a great storyline a la Uncharted/Tomb Raider, developed in Unity Pro by Roland Strålberg (programming), Chris Van Wijmeersch (2D/3D artist) and Julian Schuller (music composer).

The story:
'Celly, a young European woman, returns with her personnal aircraft to her folks' place, after a well deserved holiday at the Fillippines. Unfortunaly, her plane crashes somewhere in the Middle Eastern desert.
She gets attacked by some kinda mutants, and finds evidence of an evil organization, planning to take over the world, using some magic crystals to summon an evil Ancient God.
But, what's really frustrating Celly, is the fact that the evil organization uses the same mark as the tattoo on her shoulder...'

Game Features:

Gameplay:

  • First person 3D adventure/puzzle, similar to Tomb Raider and Uncharted type of games.
  • Walk, run, jump, climb walls/ladders, wall ledge strafing, gravity, platforming
  • Solve easy to challenging puzzles: logic puzzles, realtime physics puzzles, trigger puzzles, etc...
  • Enemy fighting: kill savage mutated humans and 'normal' humans, using a variety of handweapons (Pistol, Skorpion, Army knife, etc...)
  • 'Self-aware' inventory system. Found items will activate/trigger ingame events automatically when player gets within close distance of the appropriate trigger.

Graphics:

  • High-end quality shaders: bloom, antialiasing, godrays, color correction, dirty lens effect.
  • Usage of diffuse/bump/spec and parallax shading.
  • Full interactive water: ripples, splashes, underwater effects, reflection/refraction, camera lens watersplash effects, etc...
  • High quality textures, detailed models.
  • Cool particle effects used for bullet impacts, dust, fog, mist, etc...

Storyline:

  • Fantastical story about a young female that 'accidently' stumbles upon an evil organization wanting to take over the world using ancient magic crystals. 
  • Ingame cutscenes unveiling bits of the story.

Hello again!

We're back with a small update, because we have an idea, but we need YOU to accomplish that idea!  
We want YOUR puzzle idea in our game! And, in return, YOUR idea will get implemented, plus we'll add YOUR name to the Credits' list, and on top of that, YOU get a FREE copy of 'Seventh Crystal Of Theia' on final release of the game!

Out of all submissions, we'll pick 10 (or more if we find them good enough) puzzle ideas, and announce them here on IndieDB.

We want the community to be part of the game, but the seats are limited, so you'd better not wait too long to submit YOUR idea! ;-)

Of course, we can't accept all ideas, and there are also a couple of guidelines/rules to follow before submitting an idea. After all, we can't implement ideas that are too weird or don't follow along with the game. For example: chasing a shark in a desert would be ridiculous, and will NOT get accepted. 

So, here are a couple of rules:
  - Puzzles must be doable in first person game mode.
  - Puzzles must fit the environment (Middle Eastern desert), and the storyline.
  - Puzzles can be interactive puzzles, mini-game puzzles, inventory puzzles, pattern puzzles.
  - Make sure we can contact you: email address, full name.

And, here are a couple of keywords that might help you invent a puzzle:
  - Desert, Laboratory, Ancient God Chronos, modern times, ex-boyfriend, mutants, militairy, magic, ancient rituals...

We really can't wait to see what you guys can come up with. :)

Furthermore, i uploaded a wallpaper (size is 1920x1080, png format). Feel free to download it and use it as your desktop wallpaper. 

I also uploaded another screenshot to show the new mutant model. Enjoy!

Till next update!

The Rimfrost Team.

Some clever fixed cameras travelling on some platform passages would be lot more appreciated perhaps.

Great news.

On last two images , the character seems incredibly small, the grass is as tall as it, and trees somewhat also, seems some scalling problem appreciation.
The floor texture seems not enought detailled, perhaps scaling up the model will correct that.
For the gameplay, i hope it will remain some fun simple combat action ?
Why not Zelda like, you enter a room or outdoor arena, the doors clothes, and you have to win before doors re open.

Keep the good work.

Thanks a bunch for your great comments/suggestions, supragamer!
Agreed, the character seems too small compared to the vegetation (especially the grass/weed). I've tweaked that, and it looks much better now! :)
I also increased the tiling on some terrain textures, to make the character look less 'miniature'.
Furthermore, the cam can be zoomed in/out, and it will also automatically adjust distance when colliding with surrounding objects.
As for gameplay, yeah...we intend to keep combat action simple, but fun. The cam is always in third person mode, except when in combat (shooting mode), it will change to a first person view.
The Zelda idea is also a good one. ;-)

We have no release date set yet. However, we do hope to have a first demo level ready, either by the end of this year, or at the beginning of next year. Under normal circumstances, that is. ;-)

Looking better than ever! Good luck on finishing it :) Are you still interested in some new GUI stuff? I've been really busy recently, but if you are interested, I'll find some time to get the HUD sorted for you.
