Fusebox
« on: December 01, 2011, 03:58:47 PM »

Hey guys, this isn't really a game announcement, it's more of a game post-mortem.



It was to be a science fiction game mostly aboard a space ship headed for Saturn's moon Enceladus. It also involved some virtual reality scenes.

It was a school project and initially we had plans to make it into a full game. Unfortunately other projects got in the way and this fell by the wayside.
We had a trailer done, a fancy site and everything, but the project's been dead for a year now.
It was a lot of work and I'd like for at least a few people to see it. I decided to record some gameplay and finally reveal it to the world.

Here's the CG trailer we made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzBANDhMMLo&feature=related
Here's the gameplay video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xFUGrvba6o
And this is the site we made for it: http://www.artes.ucp.pt/ftp/a0307037/fusebox/

We had the whole story planned out so maybe one day this project might be revived.

The walk plane had a ramp on it. Seems easy enough right? But getting it all to work with the wall in front of him was one of the hardest parts of the whole project. He kept walking into the wrong walk-zones making him appear in front of the wall when he shouldn't. It was all about using a bunch of different walk-zones. Hard to explain. On the level above it was actually impossible to make him go down the stairs. He would walk down but into the walk-zone in front of him, and break the illusion of being below the floor.

It's sad thing to see (rare) sci-fi projects are delayed or frozen. Positive side is you've got precious experience though. Cool graphics  ::thumbup
