Noontide is a high-speed Hack'n'Slash in a similar spirit to Devil May Cry.

Noontide’s core mechanics revolve around the MODE system, which stands for Mobile Offensive Defensive Elucidating system.

Features:

  • Perform fluid combos by combining attacks and special techniques.
  • Master the Defensive Array to combat multiple attackers.
  • Cut through enemy formations with the full-motion 360 attack system.
  • Engage unrelenting waves of opponents in a Cyber-Victorian universe.

Hi guys, it should be pretty obvious by now that Noontide missed the MSUC phase 4 submission deadline. The only reason I can really think of is that the team underestimated the task of compiling all the content we've been developing, ambitious targets were set and with it large dependencies, lesson learnt.

Today I have footage displaying segments of the completed components ranging from maps to new mechanics and features. I have in mind to release a functional version in the next few weeks but as always my restlessness will get the better of me, so things might be a little different.


On a more official note the Noontide team has expanded and I'm happy to acknowledge the people who have dedicated time to the project.

Well to put it simply UnrealScript cannot be encrypted (As far as I know) so the "Source code" for Noontide can be viewed right now by opening the Noontide.u file you downloaded.

The only thing I ask is if you use the code as inspiration for your own project, chuck me in your credits =)

Anyway as a coding convention I should probably make an "Official" header to credit the work but for the moment just put down my name and reference Noontide.

Which component are you interested in?
because I owe most of my development pace to Unreal Script more than anything, with state functionality playing a large part in the procedure of Attacking.

Mostly the camera and button / combo components. I've just started getting my feet wet in unreal script ( i come from a XNA and HL2 coding background) and i'm actually making my own hack and slash game using XNA (Indie Project, should be on the moddb pages in a few months).

Great work

@All

Thanks for the support,
At first I was actually quite skeptical about the UE3's ability to create an sword-based action game, though funnily enough Too Human in all it's mediocrity proved that it could.
