Apparent Horizon - Kickstarted!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
September 2nd Update:

I've went live! I know a lot of you are gamers and it'd be a real help if you even donate 1 dollar to Apparent Horizon. If it succeeds I'll be sure to do at least a 100 key giveaway here on OCN.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gibletgames/apparent-horizon

Thanks Guys.


August 18th Update:

Demo

heres a demo, if you cannot connect to a game or start one, switch to offline mode because I haven't officially bought server slots yet.
Tutorial is in update folders.


June 30 Update!

Kickstarting Soon! Friday is the Target Date but I'm trying to get a few articles run about it. Have no idea how, just sent requests to some major game sites. Hopefully that opens up some opportunities.

Preview Kickstarter

A Few New Images. Twitter has most of my updates now.






== New Screenshots ==






[Sample Code for all you coders] https://github.com/twinnuke/Rescue--Final-Front
[Blog for this Game] http://apparenthorizondev.tumblr.com
[Twitter] twitter.com/horizonapparent

I'll throw down a few snippets of code so you can see / guess at what I'm working on.

As I get further on into development I'll be adding screen caps of the things in the game. I have a few already working.

When the time comes, I'll throw a small demo up on my site and ask for suggestions / feature suggestions if I have the time!




The video isn't that great as it was an In-Editor video which is low res. I have some more footage I haven't had the time to splice together yet. Those purple lines are the trails of my lasers just being too long. I fixed that already.


Definite Features --

10 Billion possible systems
Faction based A.I.
Lots and Lots of ships to fly



And So it Begins!

--- Thread Anniversary --

So it's been about a year since I initially posted this thread. I however have only been working on this steadily now since December as I was working full time beforehand. It's come a long way since the initial screen shots and I hope to kickstarter soon biggrin.gif

Heh, I didn't think it would actually be tanks per se, but the game concept. Now I think about it, that wasn't even the name of the game I was thinking of. It is scorched earth I believe.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scorched_Earth_(video_game)

Anyway, the screenshot looks very interesting and I'm intrigued, definitely looking forward to seeing more smile.gif

I used to play that game, also DomeWars for Macintosh back in the day and PocketTanks. Fun games.

So, I have my game titled (for now), and a bunch of systems semi-working. You can check out some of the code here.

I wonder when I should kickstart it. It's a hard choice because I need enough publicity and some concept art so I can use the KS money to hire artists / 3D modelers.
