Introducing Pendulum to the community. Pendulum is a top down 3D shooter. We are early into the development, and after several months of working on this, finally would like to start getting some feedback. Premise: The gamer controls Stuart Anderson. Stuart is a scientist kidnapped by a cartel to create a powerful drug named Pendulum. After three years as a hostage, Stuart has a chance to escape and make his way to freedom by fighting his way through a mansion filled with Cartel members, soldiers, henchmen, and bosses. What is Pendulum? Pendulum, aka Pend, is a powerful drug created to make you faster, stronger, and deadlier. Features: The game will have a story mode filled with dialogue,a plot, and nice visuals. Without giving too much away from the story mode, it promises to be exciting. We would also like to focus on having gun exchanges, rather than one shot kills.

Pendulum has been very collaborative lately. We have been adding in content at a rapid rate and seeing so much progress it has many of us devs up losing sleep! Many have given us positive feedback lately and that just serves to fuel the progress. There is something special about heading off with a group of people into an uncertain future, but with unlimited promise!

The new features this article will describe are:

Main Menu Screen!
Our new main menu has concepts of a syringe and some early animation to give you the "Pendulum" feel. The syringe pushes together and compresses the words, while fading out into the next scene and the gameplay. See behind the logo, the new background which is tile that is commonly used in the Environment art so as to give a cohesive feel to the menu/game.

Weapon HUD!
Our weapon hud concept is described in depth here and contains a cross-section of a revolver which may rotate in either direction. A syringe which is a Unity Filled Image. And a radial health bar. We describe the 360 degree rotation using Euler angles and the snapping into various positions. This should serve as a sneak peak and a bit of a tutorial.
As always - thank you so much for supporting our project. Please post us links to your work because we love to see what our friends our working on. Check back again soon.

2016 is the year of PENDULUM!
