A game development student hoping to master Unity soon.
My current task is to make three (as different as possible) first person projects using the Darkplaces engine.
Earlier today a gaming website showed interest in Hazard.
Below is an email I sent in reply, I hope it gives a bit more insight into my background :
I'm an independent game developer, living and working in Albany, Western Australia. I've been playing games since I got my first Atari 2600 when I was five, and then moved onto the Sinclair Spectrum 48K, the Commodore 64, Master System, NES, Atari ST, PC Engine, Amiga and everything onward.
To pursue my interest in making games myself, I went to TAFE to study game development and would like to continue my studies learning how to use Unity. My idea is to make fresh, uncomplicated, arcade-like games using older, simpler engines to begin with, because the restrictions mean I have to be creative and innovative to bring something new to the experience. If I used, for example, the Unreal or Crytek engine, I'd spend ages on small details, and what I want to spend time on is making the gameplay fun.
Hazard is the second of three game concepts I intend to make.
The first is Run Over : Indiedb.com
Run Over is a challenging (read: too hard) first person runner. The feedback I got from players was that it was good if you wanted a tutorial on playing fast fps games. I think the barrier to entry is set too high and I need to make it easier and the gameplay more fluid. Maybe using jump pads!
I am just starting to get the assets together for my third project and because of how ideas are flowing, there is a good chance of a project number four too.
Once I have completed my projects so that they have a beginning, an end and stuff to do in between, then I may or may not select one to be remade in Unity.
Hazard comes from my love of Stern's Berzerk and Disney's Tron aesthetic.It is supposed to be an uncomplicated, fast, arcade like, first person shooter, with gameplay that is influenced by id's Wolfenstein and Vlambeer's Gun Godz.
I don't have a media kit as such but I can give you a high resolution banner link :Drive.google.com
Thank you for your interest in my game!
