It's to early to say at the moment, but we may put the game out in pieces starting in July 2010 but it's still a Premature to say an exact date. We plan on showing a lot of in game footage, screen shots very shortly.
We are going to be publishing this game digitally to start. Hopefully we can bring a publisher on to publish retail at local stores as well as localization for multiple countries.
We are making dozens of dinosaurs =)
It's to early to tell but we are aiming for lower end machines as well as higher end.
Vote for Primal carnage and we will release something special! -Cheap pop lol
Lightspire is on hold, so that's not true.
We plan on dozen's of NPC dinoaurs both friendly and none. To bring the world to life.
The team and I have plans for a dozen or so dinosaurs for this game. We are focusing mainly on the dinosaurs everyone knows and grew up to love at first, as well as introducing some new ones.
It's much easier to design game play for a t-rex class and raptor rather than a Therizinosaurus. Since we have to keep balance, game play, abilities in perspective.
We will have a bunch of random NPC dinosaurs to bring the levels to life and we are using a brand new AI technology for individual AI behavior such as flocking, herds, and interactions.
As I understand your frustrations with the same ol' cliche, hence the reason why I started lightspire, since I was tired of seeing Elves, orcs, dwarves in every fantasy game and decided to evolve it. There is not many Dinosaur games out in the market today, I do not count turok as one since their Dino's seemed a bit more alien like.
It wont be easy to please everyone as much as I would like to, but I'm sure more people would rather a t-rex to not have feathers than feathers. It's all based upon opinion, as I respect yours I have to also respect the others. Perhaps we can add skins for each dinosaur as achievements, where you can unlock new skins/ models based on stats.
It's almost like if your making a Space / Sci-fi game, we all know there is no sound in space, so why have sound fx for space ships? A lot do it because it's more appealing.
Read the Brief description at the top. I'm not going to spoil any of the story just yet. On a side note, no one really knows for sure how a dinosaurs behavior was it's all based on multiple theories, which gives you a bit of creativity when dealing with dinosaurs. We plan on going the direction that most people are used to seeing when they think about certain dinosaurs.
You got it.
Unigine is not our engine, it's a commercial game engine we are using from www.unigine.com But we are making a specific announcement about our relationship with them and why we are using their engine shortly.
You sir are correct, don't forget a little Battlefield 2 mixed in.
Indie game =)
Hey guys these are some awesome replies!
Yes that is a cage. Just send me an Email regarding using the concept for your practice. If you give our team the credit for the concept art than it may be fine.
Will whale man be a playable character or a giant boss battle where you and a dozen other rabbit players team up to take him down for achievements and perhaps new gear / upgrades?
It's a Sniper / tranquilizer combo.
Great job guys on releasing, very proud of you and your entire team. Your hard work has paid off and you have my vote. So when's MWLL 2 coming out? =)
It can and it will.
"Looks at Game Design Document\" - Yep we have a couple bigger planed.
HAh, glad you guys noticed the scream! We figured it's a fun inside joke. The scream wont be used in the game though, strictly added it for humor of the animation testing.
Lan /Online/ Single player / and more that we are not saying yet.
No worries Mik0112, you can triple post if you like! You have some great criticism and it's appreciated. The more ideas, crits we get will help my team and I with producing the game at the quality the fans will want.
It's just the lighting of the render. Wait until you see it moving around real time in the engine it looks fantastic.
HAH! yes, we actually re-made that character as you will see in next update. That's funny though. Cheers
Thank you for your comments and ideas! We will give it a shot and see how it looks, thanks.
Lightspire is on hold until we finish Primal Carnage. We plan for primal carnage to raise money for us to continue development on lightspire full time since it's a very ambitious and large project.
