We are grad students at The Guildhall at SMU, located in Plano, TX. For our 2nd major "Team Game Project" (TGP) we were given the assignment of creating a multiplayer-based mod utilizing the Unreal Tournament III Engine Technology.
The result of 9 students and 2 months of our hard work is Final Act.
Final Act is a 3rd person, real-time strategy game. It is not about killing your enemies directly, but more indirectly with the use of living statues called "Summons." The win condition is to destroy the other side's Soul Well and keep your own Soul Well from getting destroyed in the process.
The installer comes with the instruction manual (reading the manual is highly recommended), but remember it is a multiplayer mod, so it is first and foremost meant to be a multiplayer game. In testing we discovered the game plays best with 6 or more people (3-on-3) but if you don't have that many people to play with, you can still have fun and enjoy our game!
WE ARE GREATLY INTERESTED IN YOUR INPUT AND FEEDBACK. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR INTEREST!!!
Once you install, start a multiplayer match, and you should be able to select from one of the two levels and create a match. Then let people join and away you go! On behalf of Team Zombie Lips and The Guildhall at SMU, HAVE FUN!
Final Act was chosen by the faculty at SMU Guildhall to be shown at the Cohort 10 Graduation Exhibition on May 15th, 2009. If you live in the Plano/Northern Dallas, TX area, we invite anyone to come to this public event! You can play games, meet the developers/students and have lots of fun!
The Exhibition starts at 12:30, and the Final Act presentation at 2:30. Hope to see you there!
