First of all I want to say “sorry” for my bad english but we aren't from UK/USA (however we have a translator).The first news about our second project.As you may know, Netherworld will be a fantasy platform. Developed using TGB + C++...
I'm the programmer and my brother work on the graphics. The sound material will be composed by 93Steps. We have some pseudo-code ready like life-death system (life, checkpoint, death and life bar), standard attack, berserk modality and save system.
For the story we have written the complete structure of the world. It will be inspired by the “Inferno of Dante”. There will be Limbo and other circles of Hell (obviously this will give us the opportunity to build up a lot of different situation).
During the game you'll meet some soul which will entertain you with stories about their past life.
We have drew five enemies (there will be 20 different kind of monsters*) , two boss, the life bar, some
concept and some circles.
In the next days we'll buy “The Animator's Survival Kit”. We tryed to animate the main character and the result wasn't bad but the book can give us a lot of help.
*every monster will have three different forms.
