SSS(Shoe String Shooter) is a low budget FPS game which attempts to achieve "next gen" look. The game has no specific theme so you might find dinosaours, ninjas, cars and robots all together in the same game. It will consist of several small levels or maybe some bigger campaigns and also online gameplay. I will try to include any mechanic that looks fun, and not necesseraly realistic. There is the intention of making it look like an AAA title, at least from the technology side. Since the budget for the assets is a little on the short side.
A random update of SSS and showing a gameplay video with a test death match level. And what is it about cats?

I was told this video is not ment to be seen by human beings, as it shows a very raw state of the game. Well, whatever...
I am showing you this death match, match I had with two other people online. One was lagging badly(there is no teleportation in the game, as of now) and he basically destroyed me.
I implemented fun stuff like gun shots volume and panning. I also added whooosh sound when someone is shooting you and the bullets go by your head, it makes whooosh sounds.
This is important because if someone is shooting one from afar, you won't hear the gun sound but you will hear bullets are fyling near you. This way you can tell someone is shooting you before hitting you.
Another thing, I have set up a donations page at Pompipompi.net
These donations will go to funding development, mostly for assets that I need.
It isn't ment to accmulate huge amounts of money, but since I am in between jobs now I can't afford to sped even 40 bucks on a track for the game(I don't have any income).
So donatations will help, but don't donate too much lol.
The game now suppors DX10 features cards. It even ran on a Geforce 8800 on 60 FPS. I suspect that the CPU performance is not optimal, so some people might still not run it even if they have a better GPU than the 8000 series.
I will be happy to get more contacts from playtesters. If you want to help me play test, please PM me or post here. I will PM you my skype.
I hope I could organize and playtest a death match level of up to 8 players. That would be fun.
LAST BUT LEAST, THE VIDEO
