I am an Amateur Artist, Mapper, Musician, Coder, Voice Actor and Modeler. I am currently working with Dubbz Studios and Shattered Studios.
You do have to remember this game was built on an XP system. The differences between XP and Windows 8 are insane.
Not particularly but Unreal 4 has easier scripting and will still turn out better. I'll probably just leave it on Unreal 3 anyway, considering how many people want it on Greenlight. It would be easier to crowd fund the $100 USD for Greenlight and just run it through Unreal 3. Saves everyone the $250
Sorry about all the polls, I just need to make sure that we are 100% set before I get back to my office on Saturday. This will be the final poll.
Some Questions I can answer for you
How much will I need to Donate?
Donation is volunteer but if you do feel like donating towards the Unreal 4 development, you can donate from $1 up. Your Choice!
What is the difference between Unreal 3 and Unreal 4?
Unreal 4 is much easier for us to use and will offer you a higher quality finalized product.
Will the game cost?
With the release of an Unreal 4 and Steam Greenlight Edition we are hoping to offer it to you for $5, we can not be sure of the price as it is to early to tell.
On the Graphics front, thats why I chose Unreal the first few times. Although the graphics may not be AAA or advanced indie, they will still look decent.
Thanks! Yes it is going to be a bit of a challange to keep the scares in cooperative without jumpscares.
We will be keeping the horror and the being chased by the Oni, we will be re-imaginging the Oni to a scarier purple blob but will hopefully still have the choice for the original Oni.
That's because the guy who did this, who I thought at the time was a great mapper. Used a brush (wall/floor piece) as the bed. He should have used the bed model from Half-Life.
Should be a lot better on Unreal though.
As it is only me working on this game for now and as I am currently on Holiday, I have decided that I will be moving it over to Unreal 3. It will still have the exact same feel as it did on the Source engine.
I know this makes the past 3 news updates as well as the vote useless and for that I am deeply sorry. I just don't have the time to configure Source 2013.
I am not posting this as a news update as I may not have any access to the internet for a week or so and I would like you all to see this.
I will be returning to work on the game in 3 weeks. The plan is not to recycle the Oni story but to expand upon it. Adding a background to the characters and more areas to the game.
Before you ask, yes it will still be 100% free forever.
If you have any questions I would be more than happy to answer them. You are more than welcome to post them here and I will answer them one at a time, or you can private message them to me.
Thank you all for your time, I appologise for all of the delays and I hope to get the game to you before mid 2015.
Yeah, hopefully haha.
Scratch that previous comment, you were exactly right. We are hoping to actually make some progress on the game this year.
norKtre55 is correct, it is a Japanese word and the original top down RPGMaker game was created by a Japanese student.
Yeah, we will be going with Source now due to all the user votes. From what I have tried alredy Source 2013 Multiplayer and Singleplayer do not work whatsoever. I have been working with Visual Studio for the past day trying to fix it. If we cannot fix it I will be looking at the CryEngine due to it being on Steam and the visual improvements graphically and gameplay wise.
Thanks, I was mid way through a custom vehicle but had to format my Solid State Drive and reinstall Maya And CryENGINE
Any planned updates/screenshots?
also don't you think creating a Valve based game on the Unity engine kind of breaks the logic of Half-Life? I mean Source is a lot easier to learn than Unity, just check out 3kliksphillip!
Due to the effort that we will be putting in to it and the size of the maps I believe it will be Early Access on Steam for $10. That is if we can get it onto steam. All up there will be around 3 to 4 16 Km2 maps. This is only our plan for now and nothing is final.
What? That's ridiculous... I thought you would have at least a 660Ti 2Gb. Just show's how much dedication to optimisation you guys have put into this game. I'd love to see the same amount of ships on my 680 4Gb haha.
Yes, that is one of the many reasons we have returned to the CryEngine. It helps provide the amazingly immersive environment especially with the stealth features we are planning to implement
Whats going on with the trailer? Its all just base CryENGINE assets...
Yes, sorry to reply so late but the HUD that is in and is going to be in all future videos for now is the CryEngine's default HUD. The HUD will be the last thing we work on for now as we'd like to get everything else done first.
What do you mean? We are not 100% sure if we will be moving over to the Unreal engine. If we do hopefully it will be free. I know the main game will be free and working with the Unreal Engine will make the puzzles easier to create compared to the Source engine.
I would be happy to 3D model this and a few other models for you. I will send you my portfolio through Facebook or your e-mail. I should have a low poly model done in about 10 hours from now (work etc).
It would be good to work with Red Inc again.
If you have any more questions I would be happy to answer them. Just PM me
Yes, the game is still going to be based on the original RPG Maker game Ao Oni. We had changed the name around 4 months ago aswell.
What kind of items etc would you need modelling on Blender? I might be able to help you there
What do you mean by this?
Yes I agree, this was a very early alpha map that we had worked on a while ago. We have changed the layout of the entire house but are hoping to have these maps in there after we edit them.
From what I've played this mod is pushing in the right direction. I think if you stop using models from sites like gamebanana and learn to model or find a good friend who knows how to model and start creating models and advanced maps for people to check out.
Ohh how wrong you were all those years ago. The game is excellent but the engine is horrid to work with. It seems Valve and Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall 2013, yes a modified Source Engine game) have modified it and made it an excellent engine to use.
A lot better than the original 2008 engine that you would have had to deal with.
Figure of speech. What I mean is that a lot of people needed the information that Artyom is giving you.
A lot of people would have killed to have this support when they first started modding. Advice like this is rare from other developers.
I hope your not focusing on a career in games development as anger management and an attitude towards others will get you nowhere in a career like this. You will always have to work in a team no matter what.
