'The Eternal Cylinder' Announcement. Sign up for the upcoming Beta!

We are extremely proud to present one of our most ambitious projects ever: 'The Eternal Cylinder'. A completely original take on the survival / adventure genre. Coming to PC and consoles in 2020.

In The Eternal Cylinder, players control a herd of adorable creatures called Trebhums and must explore a strange alien world filled with exotic lifeforms, surreal environments, and the constant threat of the Cylinder, a gargantuan rolling structure of ancient origin which crushes everything in its path. This unique ecosystem is a massive, procedurally generated land with unique animal AI, real-time world destruction, and organic exploration and puzzle design to create emergent gameplay that ensures no two playthroughs are ever the same.

Your Trebhums begin at the bottom of the natural food chain but can mutate and evolve with new physical attributes and abilities by eating a variety of flora and fauna. Discover and adapt dozens of mutations, including new traversal skills like flying and swimming to reach new areas, and new senses to help overcome puzzles, challenges and dangers. Your many Trebhums can each have different mutations, and new mutations don’t replace ones you already have, letting you stack ability sets in dynamic ways. Each mutation will also change the physical look of a Trebhum and stacking these will generate near countless surprising new creature designs which players will be able to organically discover as they explore this unique alien ecosystem.

For more information, visit the official website, where you can also sign up to join the upcoming Beta.

      So. I was recently introduced to the world or RTS games. I think they are the best type of game in existence. Knowing so, I decided to try and make my own. With javascript. Using ZERO graphics libraries. Just plain ol' canvas and fill rect.  😉  My game is called WebRisk. (I had no other names). I've gotten to the point where mostly everything except the units work. The multiplayer works but the units just sit there. Oh and, I forgot to mention what units I have. RIflemen, Snipers, APCs, Tanks, Transport Helis, Attack Helis, and Fighter Jets. Can I get some pointers from you guys? Stuff like how the AI should work and stuff. Nothing too complicated though. I would share my code, but I'm 14 and I was told my code is hard for other to read/build on. 🤷‍♂️ You can email me here: noahgerardv@gmail.com
      And one last thing. I've had alot of people tell me that I'm shooting too far. I agree a bit, but I have way to much time on my hands and a stubborn mind. So please, dont try to convince me to not do it. Sorry if I sound demanding. Heres a link to the gfx I've made. http://webriskgfx--helixable.repl.co/ That doesn't include the snipers and the riflemen btw.

      The blocks you mine has different hardness and characteristics. The most common type is of a medium strength, and then you can find softer and harder ones while digging. Blocks that cannot be mined at all are distinctively different and also has a red marker around them if you aim at them.

      It's #screenshotsaturday! This week you can see the new item info window in the middle of the screen showing details about each item. It should help with knowing what you need to find next! Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1047870/

      THE PROJECT

      INT is a 3D Sci-fi RPG with a strong emphasis on story, role playing, and innovative RPG features such as randomized companions. The focus is on the journey through a war-torn world with fast-paced combat against hordes of enemies. The player must accomplish quests like a traditional RPG, complete objectives, and meet lively crew members who will aid in the player's survival. Throughout the game you can side and complete missions through criminal cartels, and the two major combatants, the UCE and ACP, of the Interstellar Civil War.
      Please note that all of our current positions are remote work. You will not be required to travel.
