I've looked at the images you've uploaded and it doesn't look all that complicated, so I think Flash can handle your game. If you end up getting lag it's probably because of bad code.

I also wouldn't wait for the rewrite, just do it. Like you say the more code you put in the current code base the more you'll have to rewrite.

The story sounds ok, I don't know why the entire colony needs to move to another planet because of a few cave-ins but ok... Also what made the robot wake up? A power surge from somewhere down below (sounds like a good quest)?

You'll never STOP piracy, you can however reduce it. And cheaper games is one way of doing that.

Instead of complaining about how much money they are losing they should think of ways to invest less in games.

I'm sure that blizzard/ea/crytek/... can make AAA games without the need for an XXX million "enter currency here" investment upfront.

You guys keep caps locking "this game is amazing" but there is, in fact, no actual game. At the moment "Overgrowth" is nothing more than an elaborate engine tech demo.

Just because it runs fine doesn't mean it can not be improved. Think about it like this, if you have 100k models, you can NOT add 4 of them in 1 arena. Have the arena look impressive (enough polygons) and add all shaders/lighting at a playable framerate for everyone.

If you can do it with 2k polygons, why make it 20k?

moci Jun 18 2011, 7:31am says:

Well the positive thing is the face looks like a face... good job :p.

Some points to help you improve:
- the base mesh should have just enough definition so you don't have to guess what's it going to be. 344 polygons for a character is not enough.
- with each "level" you should try to sculpt as much as you can with it, don't keep adding levels just because it adds polygons. Keep it simple.
- level 7 is clearly too much for a character like this. This is because of 2 problems:
1) your base mesh is TOO simple, which results in having to up the levels quickly.
2) you do not push enough polygons in each level.

and maybe a final note:
- smooth doesn't mean good.

And what are you doing! I expect bleyblade action, lol :).

Sure they could spend a whole lot less.

But is it the actual game demo that gets the attention, or the *naked girls*? If you figure this out you can stop spending money on one or the other but when you don't want to figure it out... spend enough to get both.

For them it makes no difference, it's money they knew would be spend, their share holders know of it. These are calculated *losses*, I'm guessing they would rather lose more money than lose more time in low cost alternatives (like blogging/mouth to mouth/getting in touch with every site etc etc...).

I was going to write a big reply to this but I'll sum it up for you.

*Use the assets that you have*, and a multimilion dollar company has lots of assets and will use it to grab attention.

A new AAA title will get more coverage by having lots of fireworks and *naked girls* at the anouncement than your indie game after 6 months of writing blogs and previews.

It's only natural for you as a (at the moment) *small time* indie developer to be a bit annoyed by all the big boys doing their thing but that's just the way it is. You would probably do the same if you could.

You said:
Thanks for the tips, I wanna be a mapper, I would be a modeler but I cant draw, and my models would suck

Got the UDK huh? How is that?
My computer can't run it:(

-----

I figured I'll answer here in case you do not check my profile (most likely).

You don't have to be a good 2D artist (drawing...) to be a good modeler. It will surely help, when you've got something down on paper and you can see what u actually have to model. Specially when beginning and you just make it on the go it can go wrong in many different places.

So stick at mapping for now, once you feel pretty good about your maps you can start creating basic assets in 3d (now you also have a goal: assets that will actually be used in your maps).

Motivation is key!

As for the UDK, I'm still learning it. I've got an old but decent computer and I'm running the x64 build it runs pretty smooth. I still have to make something worth showing so maybe it'll break once I get some more complex stuff. I do like it more than Hammer!

Of course without the tools you can't create the game. But for now the tools should be created in function of the game and not the other way around I think.

A question about how things go in real life: does Bill also UV/texture the models? If so how does he go about doing it, render to texture or hand paint. I have seen the workflow you guys put up before. Like that?

Great models, they look really detailed. Are they low poly models with normals from a high poly version?

"Without any gameplay available Wolfire makes it so easy to award them the best up coming indie game of 2009".

So it, again, comes down to hype? Yes Wolfire sure puts a lot of effort on getting noticed and liked. But does that make *overgrowth* the best indie GAME? No it makes *wolfire* the best indie DEVELOPER/PUBLISHER.

- unwrap

Nice optimized stuff!

The amount of lives is a good idea, but with a twist.
There are 20 players, so there are 20 lives, people are ranked by dead/living. If every player dies the team loses, if not the team can still win if the 1 player that is left can kill everyone else from the other team.

This eliminates the problem of noobs getting killed too often so the lives drop by just 1 person.

Maybe you were thinking of this all the time...

Go to bed and get up at the same time everyday and you'll start to feel more energetic after each passing day. Have some morning ritual so your body knows it has to wake up.

It's good that you try to prove to us that you can do things. But speed isn't everything, you have a strange way of modeling and it feels wrong.

Because u try to do it too fast, the models you create during speed sessions will take a lot fixing if you were to use them in game (proper animations etc).

Well that's how I feel when just watching your speed sessions. Also, doing speed sessions does not mean to change the video speed.

It's about setting a short timeframe and doing as much as you can in that timeframe.

Every 3D engine supports 2D as well, just use an orthographic camera pointed at one of the 3 axis.

I don't think it's meant to be used like that yet. Almost everything they/he are/is adding to the engine is for a 3D game, maybe later. If you need a general engine/toolkit you'll have to look at Unity or other tools.

You're right but let's not forget about that other game that's in a seriously prolonged beta cycle: Overgrowth. It's actually funny, I bought both of these games when they got bundled together because neither of them deserve to full price.

The difference between Wolfire and Underworlds is the PR. Everybody loves Wolfire (although if you read the youtube comments people are growing impatient for them as well).

I hope they both finish the game, but I'm not really counting on it anymore. I did my part: I gave them money. If they burn it well it's their fault and they should just get a "real" job again instead. Not everyone can be an indie. The money has got to come from somewhere right?

To me it's best to release a demo closer to the actual release date. But I also understand that the demo should help grow the fanbase. So why not make 2/3 demo's? Each having a relative small dungeon but incorporate what you've managed to add to the engine so far.

The first engine (now) will give us an idea of how it will look and feel. The second will include some small storyline and so on.

Do note that your argument of trusting DesuraNET could backfire as well (even if the sings are not here yet).

The requirement that a game as to be playable/in heavy production before you can "back" it is, however, a stronger argument for DesuraNET.

My main concern (this goes for every pre-sale, especially pre-production, based economy) is that when the game finally gets released a very large portion of the sales have been made already. What happens when the game does not sell after release?

To be fair, I've also bought NS2 and Overgrowth - and those games are also not done yet. But at this point I don't see myself handing over any amount of money. All you have at this point is, as stated by GiffE, a beach.

Again if you don't have any actual progress, just shoot some behind the scenes tutorial kinda movies and we'll be happy. You shouldn't have to try so hard to get the money, if it's worth it people will buy it anyway.

"We've found it much better suited to the talents and size of our team at this point in development"

So basically you're ditching SP (for now...) because it's easier to make an MP.

Which is why I prefer SP to MP, everyone can do MP just pitch 2 teams against each other (ignoring the special abilities etc etc) but with SP you actually need to add a storyline and other things to make it interesting to play on your own.

I hope development goes well so you can start working on your SP part of the game. The other game with dino's (http://www.moddb.com/games/primal-carnage) also doesn't have MP, which is why I'm NOT buying it...

- If, at the end of the day, the games they sell don't outweigh the cost of those fancy PR things they will no longer do them (or cut back the amount of money). It's the way things work in businesses. If it doesn't pay off, don't do it.

- You might be still learning, but it's pretty obvious to see that you have to invest a lot of time with this blogging and getting in touch with your fans (more importantly getting new ones). Compared to the time they spend on that 1 event, which like I said gets as much coverage as you doing your thing 6 months long (sort of...)

- That's probably true about the 'involved' campaign. But here is a perfect opportunity to get their name *out there*. And if they don't try to be the biggest they'll end up where you are now *Ubisoft who?*

I'm probably picturing things a bit too black and white.

Sure you can do the same for less (money), but if it doesn't ROI eventually... they wouldn't. (If that ROI is just being more well known, selling games or wasting less time on doing other PR things is another matter it all boils down to eventually making a bigger profit)

But who am I kidding, I never ran PR for something nor am I in the business (Indie or not), so I actually know 0 about this topic...
