Story driven games aren't my favorites but if my situation allows before the close I will be backing at some level just because I really want to see this team continue to develop games. The quality and depth you all go after is something I definitely appreciate.
Yes, but we love to hate them. They are what spice things up and make it all worth it.
Not what I meant at all. This could very well be a great deal of nostalgia filled fun.
Ahahahaha!!! People really are trying to beat the zombie genre back to death. Just when I thought we'd seen just about everything worth while from it... Along comes Organ Trail. Brilliant twist there. Just Brilliant!
Does this mean 2.0 is closer or farther away now?
I'm not all that bothered by the lack of more new ordinance. As N.A mentioned they had already added plenty. I'm excited to see the polish they added and the other new features.
After this you guys should really consider doing an entire indie game on your own. Would be something to see.
Looks awesome! Especially the mass summoning of burning snakes. lol But really I like what I am getting the idea to be so far. Not enough of these cool sandboxy games with solid sim elements to the world let you just be ONE character and stay to just influencing NPCs. Burning snakes aside of course. Because having no control of your own burning snakes would just be chaos.
Loving the video man. Lovin it. Some of the animations seem a little rough still but... Is it my imagination or has there been epic improvements and additions all around since the last dev blog deally?
Honestly lost interest in the project when it moved to skyrim. But this is just so screwed up I'd like to support them. Sadly... that gopetition site sort of gives me the creeps.
Naw, he ran into a pack of rodents and got too excited. ;) Six little bugger cost him clip after clip of ammo! lol
I don't like what they did to Elderscrolls with Skyrim either. The engine might be nice and all but they stripped away SO much of what made elderscrolls a fun rpg that it's just not worth having.
That is cool!
Come on. Admit it. You edited out 50% of it to hide the goofing off that breaks out randomly in that open isle in the middle! ;)
You should make it so that randomly clouds shaped like things are generated. "Ooh! A bunny!!". lol
Er, they are flying? I'm not seeing it. I think the clouds are over them. Er which would be supported by where it says Poison Cloud Arrow on the screen there.
I love what I've read so far! I'll be watching for more!
I think he means in zombie form. Would personally put me off of things a bit. Sure bad things happen to everyone in real life.. But no need to push it that far in a game. Is why I eventually couldn't take the walking dead comic anymore.
Interesting art style. I like it. Not my particular style of game but I still wanted to give kudos for the style and willingness to step outside the norm.
Well if you are going nitch... I would also love a space game where ships aren't disposable. Well at least beyond the starter ship. I would love for them to be expensive as heck. Have lots of components that can be upgraded or switched with things that are scattered about at varying cost and rarity.
Im talking expensive enough that people playing for a year might have three to five nice ships. If they are very good, very dedicated, and very lucky. And not spending their earnings elsewhere. On things such as orgs, stations, blah blah. And keeping much more than that as an individual would be too costly and just unreasonable.
Too many space games have disposable ships. Or ships that will respawn with you! lol Sort of sad. How do you get invested in something like that? How do you get attached to your ship and take pride in it? And yes.. I personally like it to down right hurt if I lose a ship. Thats what I like anyways.
I would love to give you an answer but I don't really know what YOUR goal is. Do you want to make a living off the game? Is it a labor of love that you will maintain out of pocket and on donations?
Are you going for a nitch game or are you going for the ever popular(with publishers anyway) mass appeal route?
Just my own greedy desires? I'd love to see it as a persistent multilayer myself. By that I mean instead of trying to make the game that will support thousands all at once focus or a deep and rich universe that can support 60-200 people at once and continue running.
Doesn't matter if individual server hosting for the game has to go through you or you release it with the sale of the client... I think letting people build their own little communities where you can actually know all the people and have a real impact.. I think it would be popular. Not just with me. :p
Wow, epic talent.
What? No flaming snakes? ;) Looks good.
You and a certain other modder are just tormenting stalker fans at this point. :p
Very cool idea.
I'm curious. How will this handle mods. Will any of the original mods be compatible or easily convertible?
If not you should hook up with the Tamriel Reborn team. They have generated a huge amount of content that I would imagine is compatible with your work. Great quality content.
Is this to be a retail game?
Lookin good man.
That would be a BAD time for your flashlight to fail.
Not quite the kind of game I'm looking for personally but the idea of using the planets core to power a spaceship.. I have never really heard of that one before. Brilliant idea! And even though it's not my kind of game it looks pretty well polished. I wish you the best of luck with it.
Good to see a project like this. I think it's inspired by feelings similar to my own. "The game I want to play doesn't exist and isn't being made. I should make it myself!'.
The difference being it seems you all may have some skills to work with. You all are even working on a project that leans toward the type of game I want to play! Wish you guys the best of luck and will surely give it a try if it becomes available to me! Good luck!
I'm just finding this mod so I haven't dug up all the info. But honestly instead of seeing a repeat of all the SA missions I would personally much more enjoy if you could manage to make the gang wars a more challenging long term sort of thing.
And maybe try to work out some other similar things. Turn it into a full on sandbox instead of a story driven sandbox. That's just me though. Looks amazing btw.
Sweet idea! Considered trying to incorporate ammo clip belts? To limit how much ammo you can consider as having at the ready?
Guess that really isnt an issue with ammo weight but it's an idea.
Wow, really. Down voted for a comment like that? really? Bite me. Stalker always had things that were explained with science fiction of some kind. Not magic. That thing doesnt even appear to have lungs or muscles.
I figured there must be some odd explanation and I just somehow missed or forgot them. But seriously... My comment wasn't particularly rude or offensive... Why the hell am I getting down voted?
Hmm. I am lost or forgetting some odd stuff. Since when did stalker have magical undead?
It's kind of hard to imagine a mutation that would keep that thing alive in that condition.
Lets face it. The ??? = cheese. It's the greatest catchall there is.
Why can't nomads be organized? Actually it seems somewhat likely for successful nomads. It would help with defense and breaking down camp to move quickly when needed. Just saying.
A little less perfect order might be nice but I don't think nomads would be particularly chaotic.
Man, watching you release updates on this game is like watching someones odyssey happening. Much has happened. Much more to come. All of it interesting.
What I got from this video? Big, FLUFFY cats. And how many times did you kick that drum that you had to move it back and fourth so often?
That was a lot to read. A lot to consider. Now I will tell you the most important take away I got. Dragons wearing Fedoras.
Got mine! Played PZ for the first time in a while. Lasted all of 9 IG hours. lol Not long at all. Like the new UI changes but figuring some of it out at the moment is getting me in trouble.
Someone feed him after midnight? ;)
As much as I'm interested in your game.. I hate facebook more. :p I'd rather wait till it's available and I can afford to pay my way into the game.
One very serious question for the two of you.
Do either of you even remember what your chins look like? :))
O.O Farming in sand! Talk about a green thumb.
medve Terraria was top in steam for a good while. 2D too. I like natural selection myself. But you can't look down on the 2D. It certainly has its place in gaming.
Hey it's your game. Do what you like. But I'm of a different opinion on game realism than you are. It's a fictional world. You can build a sense of realism in a game world that has no relation at all to true reality. All it requires is that you make a little effort to make a set of rules, natural laws, to the world that the human mind can accept then enforce them.
You could have made a magic system with a lot of restrictions and limitations. And even a risk to reward type deal. Such as magic could kill the character if pushed too far. Or you can only perform magic by collecting something challenging deep in dungeons. And you could make it so magic isn't super powerful but more of a help to improve your survival situation.
Anyways, I can see why you decided not to put in magic and I wouldn't fault you for making your own choices with your own game. I just can't say I agree with the thought process behind it as explained. That said.. Rock on. I'm still watching this game with interest and doubt I will stop any time soon!
I can't decide if he is an assassin off to murder someone's face or a monk out gathering herbs. Either way very cool.
I'm bliiiind! Aaah!
That character kind of reminds me of Stewie from family guy. It's a very good video showcasing some fairly exciting features but for some reason the thing that struck me most profoundly was... that this guy looks like Stewie from the family guy.
Glad to see you guys did post up at mmorpg.com. I put in my hype! Even mentioned the kickstarter. Who knows? maybe you will get a last days rush and make the mark?
Man that kickstarter campaign is breaking my heart. :.(... I mean I'm glad to know you guys plan to continue development regardless but still... Would have been nice to see that boost get injected into your resources.
LOL!!! Whats with passed out guy on the bench?!? Looks good though.
Be fair man. Their other updates talk about plenty of improvements they are making.
They... just couldn't release... Any of them at all. >.> Yeah...
Okay I'm getting sick of these guys too. They have a good game concept. The improvements they talk about sound great. But the actually getting of stuff done and then getting it out to us their fans? It's freakin pathetic. It will be nice if I actually get to play a more polished version of PZ some day but I think I'll make it a point to avoid any other products these guys put out. At least until I see that it's good and finished before hand. I sure wouldn't be supporting them during development. They've shown that to be a mistake.
By making a large enough contribution to their kickstarter campaign.
Hehe that looks really good! Of course they all sort of strike me as pine trees but I get that there is a limitation to this sort of art style. ;)
You game only seems more interesting the more I read. Looking forward to more!
Man you guys made a lot of progress! Exciting!
What about night time with rain? O.o
Between the costumes and the harry Potter poster that pic does not inspire a lot of confidence. Amusement sure. Confidence no. And batman, why is there an extremely happy henchmen daintily holding your cape?
hehe Just waking up. Spotted this during my sleep fogged early net wanderings. I'll read it all once my focus is a bit sharper.
I haven't finished reading this just yet but.. Holy crap! Awesome! With this much of your concepts broken down to cover each area few people should be confused on what you all plan so far!
Very interesting stuff! I have only two comments.
1. xcom is watered down and sad...
2. And Cally looks cute as hell!
You guys are doing a lot of great work and all.. But honestly I'm getting pretty antsy for another relatively stable release. With you know.. at least some of the great work you've all been doing.
I know it takes as long as it takes. But the wait is getting uncomfortable.
Sometimes its really great being wrong! ;) Looking forward to this even more now!
Exciting stuff! But the fact that you put in the leveling system sort of reminds me.. That while Morrowind is one of my favorite game of all times... One of the few Ive bothered completing at all.. And I completed it several times... I was only able to do it with the help of GCD. The seamless leveling mod. I assume mods for the old game won't work with OpenMW. So, have you all considered maybe building some of the more popular core gameplay mods into the game engine itself? As options of course.
Seamless leveling is my essential mod but I'm sure there are others that people just found they couldn't play the game without in the community.
Though I understand there is the issue of where to draw the line. Who get's their essentials and who doesn't. I just felt like I had to ask. I surely don't look forward to feeling like I need to min max and fear using certain skills at the wrong time again. lol
It's hard to believe someone is.. ah.... Unintelligent enough to make this comment with any seriousness. I'm leaning toward thinking it's a troll. Which is worse.
Nice video. And how jealous are the none english speakers that we get the nice ladies voice for narration!?! ;)
The names are nicknames that would be likely to be given by stalkers. Usually based on appearance and behavior. Why cant stalkers be rpg fans too?
Not bad. If you are looking for ideas for more swamp filler I nominate moss covered stones and leafy branches sticking up out of the muck.
Heh, things are moving right along!
Why for you must tease us? Do you enjoy the suffering of your greedy fans?
Yes, I can. But that is choosing to put myself at a disadvantage. As the magical floating three or more feet behind and above your head sort of changes your perspective. Letting you look around objects without actually having to place those pesky eyes and that vulnerable head into a direct line of site with what you are viewing.
I would rather it just be realistic and only let you go first person. Perhaps with a vanity view that lets you see how you look but in a way that is not functional for combat.
Still not a fan of third person for a stalker game but man. That looks promising as hell.
Between the beard with a hole in it and pirate wenches you have a very understanding girlfriend.
Okay Shores of Hazeron does look interesting!
So much teasing. So little releasing. :p Starting to really believe you enjoy tormenting us more then the idea of sharing with us.
Now that is some smuggling goodness right there.
That is sexy as hell!!!
In these sorts of games I always expect the perfectly straight lines fanning out from your character that make it easy to miss anything a little distance away.
This system is SO much better. Makes you more directly involved in hitting the target. Awesome idea and the implementation looks just as good!
Really really going to have to try this some time.
Did they really have curbs back then? Anyway, looks purdy.
LoL Dance of death!
Lookin pretty damn good!
I'm curious. The way you show the two different houses. Are these two options for timber houses? Or are these something that will be possible to build in some sort of modular system?
Looks very cool!
Video looks awesome! Didn't enjoy the guy at all but will try the game. Find out what I missed with the original wing commanders. ;)
It's like he is just teasing us at this point. :.(...
Sounds very cool! A bit complex.. But still very cool!
Does verifying with steam and replacing the engine mean we lose some misery features?
