The story of a great adventure

ET : Are they really intelligent ?

It has become a common concept for everyone that if there are ET, they MUST be more intelligent... but  why ? Maybe we haven't found anything yet (or at least anything was announce yet) because we ain't searching the right thing. We are searching stuff that come out of our own science fiction and we never thought about the hypothesis that maybe WE are the sci-fi of them ? That idea of them being equal, at most, but different, was the start of this crazy story. We imagine people that have live their own life, on their own planet and timelapse. Similar to our. What would happen ? probably different stuff than here, but not so much more or less. Stuff would be different because we would probably think different, but with equal evolution time there is no reason to think they would be far more advance than us.  One thing we may have in common, the search for Extraterrestrial Life. 

We are the monster !

Yes we are ! I take into consideration that if they have similar evolution but different technology and that they are seeking life too, well then there is a high chance that they have sci-fi too and that we are the monster, we are the alien, we are scary ! The comic book evoke this through encounter between the  Zarin and natural force. We have water all over the place, what if other species don't have water, what if you see the sea for the first time in your life and that you never heard of it. What is calming for us could be really threatening from an untrained eye who see this weird material/creature moving toward you trying to grab you with the wave. The reaction from an outsider to everyday object could be really interesting and funny. 

The mission

As stated before, Zoïle get a mission briefing from the high council and form his own squad. One of the them, Guigner, is a true believer of the "tall colored one". (Yeah we are afraid of little green alien, they are afraid of tall colored one...). Their mission is to investigate our planet in search for intelligent life form. Nobody really think that there is life here because the CO2 level is higher than life could sustain for more than 20 years, at least, based on their biology. Still, Zoïle take his mission very seriously and depart to earth. The army, desperate to get rid of Zoïle toxic behavior, was sending them to what they believe to be an insignificant mission that could leave them away from the real business for a couple of time. Left with a ship in a poor condition, the crew risk their life in the deep space. Approaching earth, mechanical trouble put their safety at  risk, the only hope is to land and hope for the best. The group crash into earth, spreading spaceship piece all over the globe following it's explosion. The group survive thanks to their anti-gravity shield armor, they face no fall damage. They are in shock and wake up in an unknown location. They are afraid in this very hostile area, their first goal is to settle a camp, their primary mission is to find proof of intelligent life form. It's a recon mission, they don't know if we are hostile or not, they don't want to get notice, they want to get safe, take proof and repair/rebuild their ship to reach freedom. Through their journey, they will discover new and hidden information about their original mission that will change their destiny forever.

We hope to explore our universe with a different eye, through the eye of a visitor, we want this story to be fun and believable in a way. I have attach a small section of the very early sketch of the original story comic book. The entire story and book will be completely redraw and rewritten to provide a high quality final product. There will be different technology, your alien will feel overpower but their weakness put them at risk. We want the world to feel both pretty and dangerous and I hope you'll find the plot interesting. The game will unlock many information about the species and their mission. Your primary objective will be to rebuild your ship to leave this god damn planet (isn't it Ripley that said that in Alien ?). The hidden objective and story will be revealed in-game while you progress and you will be unlocking the real primary objective. We don't want to spoiled it here, but I expect some of you to expect what will happen.

Let me know what is your favorite sci-fi movie in the comment below !

I nearly missed this week blog, my personal life was a bit troubled this week, but I am here. Last time, i was hoping to get more comment to reveal a tutorial on how to draw Zoïle. We didn't get enough comment, but I will share a video anyway next week. Make sure to subscribe so you don't miss it. The tutorial will include both the sketch and inking.

      I’m not really sure where is the place to post this but I’m looking for people who could help me, either by how could I put the “soul” of league into a card game if you know what league is about,how to make a card game that feels like a moba, any advice on the best way to develop a card game on unity, different mechanics that I should consider putting in the game, helping me find the right place to post this or Anything that you think could help me on this project.
      I will be more than thankful with anyone with the will to help me, sorry if you find any mistakes here, not a native speaker.

      Hi everybody,
      So, me and my colleagues are now joining Unity Game Jam. It's gonna be two weeks and we are trying to make a Third Person Shooter with RPG and RTT mechanics video game. We've started yesterday with the main concept and this is what we have:
       
      Game Storyline
      Nobody could imagine the falling of the whole world until the deaths woke up. That nonliving ones became something we cannot consider as human being. They change into a new creature, stronger, more frightening, and almost unbeatable. Society broke in pieces and the few ones alive had to survive at any cost.
      As the Major of a ranger platoon you have found an abandoned Military Outpost crowded of helpless people closer to one of the coldest parts in the world. You must keep them in safe until the reinforcements arrive.
      There’s only one way to kill the damn zombies: the BlockchainZ Ammo.
      Search for the BlockchainZ Ammo and destroy the hordes of zombies, but beware of the raiders: they will take your BlockchainZ Ammo whatever it takes.
      Right now the Raiders have all the BlockchainZ ammo, you must fight them and spoil it, but be on guard, they will counterattack.
      Remember, the survival of the people depends on you. Don’t let them down!
       
      Gameflow.
      Once you start playing Project BlockchainZ, you must defend the bunker against the hordes of zombies and raiders on a fixed map where you'll fight with your troops and traps.
      The bunker is basically the main area where you'll not only have to keep the people within alive, but also yourself during the reinforcements arrive.
      The zombies are extremely resistant, so you will need a type of ammo called BlockchainZ, which contains a very strong poison that acts directly against the brain traveling through the body.
      The BlockchainZ Ammo is hidden in Raiders's Facility Bases and you must spoil it from them. The more  B-Z Ammo you spoil, the more Raiders will attack you, increasing the game difficulty level.
       
      Features.
      Third Person Shooter. Tactical map to manage your troops across the battle. Deploy defensive elements to direct the action where you want. Post apocalypse - scify style. RPG character development.  
      Right now, we've just opened our Project page in the forum. We only have two weeks to develope this idea. Our team is formed by two programmers, one game designer/ scriptwriter and one artist. So, we will update this thread to show you our improvements. Hope you like it. Any suggestions are always welcome. Thanks for all the support!

      This is a nice first draft of how the main menu will look like. I've was inspired by Memphis design while making this.

      Hello,
      I'm currently looking for a talented and passionate concept artist that would like to join our team that's creating a small horror game (which would be created in 3 months or so). At the moment we're a team of 6 people. You must be able to create environments, creatures/monsters and characters.
      The game is a sci-fi/post-apocalyptic survival horror 3D game with FPS (First person shooter) mechanics and an original setting and story based in a book scene, where a group of prisoners are left behind in an abandoned underground facility.
       
      If you are interested or would like to know more about the project you can DM me through here or in discord (world_creator#9524)
