Type 3 is an FPS RPG with a psycho-mystery thriller storyline, and is set in an open-world/level-based hybrid sci-fi universe. The game will bring up and tackle sensitive issues affecting modern society and try to take the first steps towards making video games art. You are Keith Raven, an ex-soldier who's mental and emotional scars led him to spend 20 years in a psychiatric hospital. Shortly after release, his brother, a high ranking official in the United Republic of Species, commits suicide. After receiving a secret postmortem message from his dead brother, Keith reveals the racism, hate, and corruption reaching to the highest tiers of the Estari government, while fighting the intense psychosis destroying his sanity and perception of reality.

In the last two weeks, Wolfpack Designs has gone through some major changes, among these was a plan to rebuild the look of the studio from the ground up. The first stage of which is a new name. Today, I'm happy to announce the new look and name of Wolfpack Designs, under the moniker of Koru Entertainment.

In the last two weeks, Wolfpack Designs has gone through some major changes, among these was a plan to rebuild the look of the studio from the ground up. The first stage of which is a new name. Today, I'm happy to announce the new look and name of Wolfpack Designs, under the moniker of Koru Entertainment. Koru Entertainment will be working on two games, Type 3, and a yet to be announced project being created by a team that recently decided to join Koru Entertainment.


While we have been spending much time on creating our new Studio, we have made great progress on Type 3 with our new concept artists. I'll start with the pieces from our Lead Concept Artist, Alex Chu.

This is our main character, Keith Raven, the suit he is wearing is the suit that will be worn in safe areas throughout the game, an example which is Estari City. The suit is used because in a real society, someone walking around in a full body suit armed to the teeth would instill fear in the populace, just as someone with an assault rifle in Times Square would cause fear on our own society.. Keith will be wearing a much lighter armor, much more like clothing, but with light protection for emergencies. He will also carry a pistol for potential self-defense in the less prosperous locales within the city.

This is the lovely Estari City, this is a mood piece, and is one of many to come.

These pieces are miscellaneous rock and crystal pieces by Brad, they will be used in various environments throughout Estari.

And this is the finished concept of the Niirae forest.

These pictures are examples of the Cone Step Mapping featured in the Maoli engine. Cone Step Mapping can be most easily described as the next generation of Parallax Occlusion Mapping. While it is more complicated then that, it serves the same purpose, but does so much more realistically. All detail shots are using only Cone Step Mapping, there are no added polygons, it is simply a flat floor using the Cone Step Mapping feature.

Good old Maoli Engine ;) - I wonder when this is gonna be finished. At least we'll see some impressive games on it. Can't believe this quality is geting realised by small indie-teams these days.

I can't help but think you're stating the obvious here and not too eloquently, and that's 'locales' by the way (just a fancy way to say 'location'); locals would be the local population.

I do like the names you've got though: Estari, Niirae.
But... not so much Keith Raven or United Republic of Species, though. Yes, the little details are important to me.

So, apart from your, uh, amateurish presentation... great work. Everything looks great. Looking forward to seeing everything come together. Are you all (your studio) working locally (ie. in a physical studio), or over the internet, or a bit of both?

How's the FPS-RPG thing going to come into play? Deus-Ex style? Fallout 3 style?

Haha, true, I didn't pull out all of my literary weapons for that one. While it is explaining the obvious, it's explaining something obvious that (as far as I know), no other game has picked up on yet, and since it isn't the usual for games, it did need an explanation.
Oh, and thanks for picking up on that typo, I'll fix that.
Oh, and the United Republic of Species is a codename, and will definitely be changed, since, I'm not a fan of the name either. We're just using it as a generic code name for now.

The FPS-RPG feel will be quite different from either games, and how it will end up is obviously undetermined at this time.

We all work over the internet, none of us have met in person. Also, as of this writing - the entire company consists of 47 members.

If we don't get a publisher, the game will be between $20-$30 and will also be distributed through steam.

If we do get a publisher, pricing is out of our hands and it will most likely be the standard price for games these days.

Another Crysis RPG mod dead. Moddb really needs to clean up their database. "moddb.com" is quickly becoming known as the place unsuccessful programers post their mods.
