Vanguard: Post-apocalyptic Car Battler! (ROM12)

Postby samw3 » Mon Jun 18, 2012 9:06 pm

ROM12 has a big team this year, and we've come out of the gate running.

We want to tell an allegory of my(samw3's) testimony; about the passage of faith from my parents, to the challenge of understanding its depth, making it my own, and eventually it leading me in my own life.

And the game is...

Vanguard

Vanguard is a post-apocalyptic car battler set in a world devastated by unruly military drones and kamikaze driverless cars. The story begins with a father and son active in the dangerous courier business. A turn of events leads the son down a different path seeking the meaning of the mysterious message given to him by his father.

We'll keep you posted as more develops!

God Bless and Happy SpeedGaming!

Hear ye, Hear ye. From here on forth, shall it be known the heritage and history of Samw3 is one of post-apocalyptic car battling. So say we all.

Hehe. Yeah, well, it is an allegory. And Robin_Harborn had a lot to do with the theme. :D

So, we made some more progress last night. Robin made a map for the game, and Morgan(kc009) cleaned it up. If this was a boxed game, this would have been included in the box I think.

Awesome! And parts of the game will be in Michigan none the less! Are you planning lakeside missions in Beulah?

(On a purely technical note, I think Gilead is a bit further south than that (closer to the border). Your mark is more like Coldwater.)

Artistic license ;)


Well, Morgan whipped up some nice sound sketches for the background music, and I'm working on a title screen. Everyone else is still getting into gear and tying up loose ends with their schedules.

Our team is split up like this:
Robin_Harbron: Game play code
samw3: Game flow and story coding and art assist
Mene-Mene: Code assist
washburnello: Art
kc009: Music / SFX

We hope to make this weekend a productive one.

God Bless!

Hehe. We'll see!

Made good progress on the level generator today. Still not good enough to show yet tho.

However, I also did some intro art :)

Is that from the part when you demanded your parents to buy you your first vic-20?

Thanks guys! We're kind of in that part where everything is rough and there's not a lot to show, but we've made good progress.

Robin has the van (player) moving around the map and collisions are working.

I have mostly finished a pretty neat map generator to help us build levels quickly. I've also started on the skeleton for the flow of the game.

We have a near final on the tile layout and washburnello is making good progress there.

God Bless!
