Ok, so as a lot of you may know, I currently co-run an indie team called Team Blur Game and we are hard at work on our post apocalyptic first person shooter OverDose. OverDose has a strong team play feel to it, lifting a lot of inspiration from Return To Castle Wolfensteins objective based gameplay, almost to a homage level of appreciation. Obviously, we have added our own elements along the way to stand out, such as a more advanced movement system that lets you mount/climb objects, even letting you buddy up with a friend who can help you climb up higher surfaces. The number one point of OverDose was to pretty much bring Wolfensteins objective team play based gameplay screaming into the new era as much as we could.
Obviously as a tiny team, this is bloody hard work. With one coder and one artist, its
Tough. We have had Jamin who did our character models and weapons, but even then we have a single weapon completed and two characters (plus several heads). Ive had to do everything else, art wise, including UI, effects, textures, models and maps. A massive project
But thats not for here, because that would be more of a help wanted style post, which this isnt as its more of a pimp (But yeah, if you can help out, give us a PM).
Before I get onto some screenshots of what OverDose looks like in its current state, please be aware of something
OverDose is based on id Tech 2. Two. Thats Quake II.
Anyway, onto some shameless self pimpage. With the renderer being pretty much feature complete now, I figure its time to ramp it up a bit with pimping. Polycount has a boat load of my heroes and people I look up to posting here, and I value you guys more than any other area of the tinternets when it comes to this stuff.
