Dead or Alive A game concept written by Caio Sampaio Last updated on 30/07/2013 Objective The objective behind the project “Dead or Alive” is to make a small game, in order to get attention from the gamming community, thus making the recruiting process for Ariel easier. Dead or Alive has only three characters and two different environments and one of the characters does not require a detailed model, because he stays hidden in the shades and only his silhouette can be seen by the player. Even though Dead or Alive is a small project, it must be taken seriously and everybody in the development team must understand that this is the project that will provide support for Ariel, in regards to recruitment. Requirements One of the main reasons to make Dead or Alive is its simplicity. Asides from the development team Nuclear Particle Studios already has, it would only be required two voice actors. One male and the other female. Through my contacts I can easily find a Lead Designer/Creative Director, game testers and perhaps someone to compose and sing an ending song (maybe) The game can be developed using the Unity Engine, what makes the process much easier, thus faster. 2 PlotNote: The following is just a sketch of the plot that might have its details changed if required by a member of Nuclear Particle Studios.Our plot begins with a video of an old lady being interviewed in a TV show. The old lady is called Miranda and she is being interviewed because after a lifetime of dedication, she had finally discovered the cure of AIDS. The interviewer asks her, why she had decided to dedicate her life for such a cause…Miranda has never told anyone about it, but she decided it is time for people to know the dark truth behind her work…As she starts to tell her story, the player is taken to a flashback of when she was only 22 years old.She is in a forest with her boyfriend. The sun is gone, it is nighttime already and she in unconscious, lying on the ground and holding an apple with her right hand, she is nearing certain death.The player takes control of her boyfriend, Jack, who is lost in the middle of the forest along with her. He is on his knees watching hopelessly Miranda die in front of him, as he sees a man in a dark suit, whose identity is hidden because he stays in the shades.The mysterious man in black claims that this is all Jack’s fault and Miranda would have to pay the price for Jack’s mistake, however Jack insists that should be a way out and decides to leave Miranda, his beloved one, behind in order to look for supplies that could be useful to save her life.After walking in the forest for a few minutes and encountering the mysterious man several times, Jack reaches an abandoned house. Determined to find supplies to save Miranda, he enters in it. While scavenging for supplies, the mysterious man appears several times, always trying to let Jack down, reminding him of all the mistakes he made in his past and how he was a failure as a person. Jack claims that he was always followed by the mysterious man throughout his life, always making him feel weak and unimportant. But he never knew why… 3Jack starts to hear a helicopter flying nearby their location, so he leaves the house and runs back towards Miranda and starts to scream and wave at the helicopter, but it does not see him and starts to fly away.Frustrated, he decides to give up. But the mysterious man tells him that there is another house where he could look for supplies. He does not understand why the mysterious man is trying to help him now, but he does not question him and decides to go there hoping to find something that can save Miranda.As he arrives at the house, the mysterious man contacts him again. Through dialogue, it is revealed the reason why Jack and Miranda were lost in the middle of the forest. Miranda wanted to spend the day close to the nature and Jack decided to go with her. They got lost and soon began to starve. In desperation, Jack gave an apple to Miranda. That apple was poisoned and started to kill her slowly.Jack finds a list of supplies required to make and antidote that could save Miranda and after finding all the items in the list and mixing them together, it was finally time for him to head back to where Miranda was and save her.But, shortly after reaching Miranda, Jack sees the mysterious man again. He claims that he already knew how this story was going to end and he just wanted to make sure it would happen the way it was meant to. He told Jack that he needed to save her, but he would not be allowed to come back alive, because based on his sacrifice, Miranda would learn that she needed to dedicate her life to a greater cause.The mysterious man, reveals that he had always followed Jack, because he needed to work Jack’s life, in a way that he could fall in love with Miranda and sacrifice his life for hers. Because based on his sacrifice, Miranda would do great things for humanity.Jack then decides to trust the mysterious man and gives the antidote to Miranda, and then kills himself…Miranda knew that Jack died saving her and she knew that Jack would go to heaven. She decided to live with Jack in heaven throughout eternity and in order to do so, she would have to earn her spot there. So she became a biologist and dedicated her life to finding the cure of AIDS, so she could go to heaven and live stay with Jack through eternity. “Always sign off ‘til we meet again’, because goodbye is always so final” Dan Wheldon, two times Indy 500 Champion (1978-2011)
