Dark Prospect is an FPS / RTS Hybrid, a genre mix that offers 4vs1 battles between up to 4 FPS players and 1 RTS player.
The idea for Dark Prospect came to us because there have been more and more 4 player coop games lately. While the graphic and playful implementation is often very good, there is often a lack of really good AI that works tactically and creates interesting situations. That's why we wanted this role to be taken by a player who can observe the situation from an RTS perspective and thus has the opportunity to act more tactically than an AI could. Although Dark Prospect offers the possibility that the monsters can be controlled by an AI, the clear focus is on PVP.
Play as a soldier (FPS): In all game modes, it is important to stick together as a team and act tactically. Find better weapons, equipment, and resources to defend yourself against the hordes of monsters controlled by either another player or an AI.
Play as an Overlord (RTS): Choose from a variety of different monsters and assemble squads. Expand the skills of the overlord and the skills of your monsters. Use your special skills to set a trap for the soldiers and kill them while you control the action from an RTS perspective.
Last week we were able to test Dark Prospect more intensively with some people.
Except for a few bugs, the test was very positive. The gameplay was both fun and demanding, and also the technology ran almost smoothly.
The rest of the week we focused on fixing the errors from the test session.
But we were also able to finish some new features like the extended basis for the FPS players.
You can find a compilation of the test session here:
And some impressions for the new fps basis. A laser cannon that must be defended as long as it is charging. Once fully loaded, it can be activated to destroy the RTS player's portal.
