The Background

The game takes place in a world almost submerged by water, where all the land that is left are small islands, where the remains of the human race try to survive after the cataclysm known as the Seven Tides.

You play the story of Jon Riley, a young boy living in the Island of Chelonii, in the Eastern Kingdom of Khalandrie. After a visit from an old mysterious acquaintance, his grandfather, the only relative Jon has mysteriously disappears and Jon embarks on a quest to find what happened to him, while discovering the truth about himself, and the underlying mystery of the Island.

For a full description of the game check out The Game page. (user: seventides pass: indie)

The Mechanics

The game will be mainly feed from the traditional mechanics of adventure games popular in the 90’s with games like The Broken Sword, Monkey Island, The Longest Journey, Full Throttle, The Dig etc.

It also introduces some RPG elements that promote exploration in order to immerse the player deeper in the world. The main driver of the gameplay experience is going to be the story as it's traditional in this genre of games.

The Art Style

Currently the adopted art style is a flat shaded, low poly style. You can see some examples below and the full gallery here (user: seventides pass: indie). Please not all of the screens are work in progress as we are working in iterations to move faster.

We are lucky to have an amazing musician and talented producer in the team that is composing amazing musical scores for the game. If you want to hear some music samples get in touch!

The game is being developed in Unity 5 in 3D low poly flat shade style. We are currently using the following main tools:

  • Unity 5 - Game engine

      Unity has put up an official release of EditorXR (formerly EditorVR).

      If you haven't tried it lately, you should. This release is actually very good,

      Hello everyone,
      I'm looking for some input. We created a tool called Scene Fusion to enable real-time collaboration while doing gamedev in Unity. In effect, it will replicate any scene changes one person performs for everyone else connected to the session. It works well, and we as well as our customers using it notice a drastic speedup getting work done, especially when building large complex levels.
      One limitation we have is that we can't support every single plugin and asset out there, so what we opted to do is provide an API that allows game developers to do that work as required.
      My question is: How many if you out there actually end up having to modify an external plugin/tool in order to get it to work with your project?

      I'd like to start building a 2D game, very small, just pixel art. I know python/javascript/tiny bit of HTML and I've started learning C++. I'm a long way from starting officially, I've just been making mini-projects to practice & drawing up concept art/gameplay storyboards. I'm just wondering if I'm off with the C++ for the game's programming, or if I should know certain things before starting.
      The game would be very small, I just want to get started trying out some actual work before college.
      Some other info: I'm working by myself on this, and going into game design/programming next year for college. I'm a high school student with a few years of experience just working by myself making small projects, drawing up stuff, so I really don't know much and I'd appreciate any tips.
      Thanks a bunch!

      SWARMED is a Zombie-themed RPG / RTS currently in development using Unity 3D. We love Dwarf Fortress (though we have no illusions that SWARMED will reach the same level of complexity), roguelikes, old-school point & click RPGs and real-time strategy games. We aim to cross genre-borders here and there and give some twists to the old Martinis every gamer has been drinking since the 1980s, metaphorically.
      Single player, 3D graphics and adjustable top-down camera - old-school RPG / RTS feeling Take control of a core group of survivors after the outbreak Encounter Zombies that are a real threat, no machine-gun massacre. Don't get swarmed! Build a safe zone anywhere with a highly flexible build system: campsite, lighthouse, school, or fence a whole village Grant asylum to other survivors that you meet and make them a part of your community Achieve sustainability in your safe zone and go on supply runs with your survivors
      Development
      The core team of recently founded indie studio Three Eyed Games currently consists of one writer, two artists and two programmers, based in Germany. We are in our mid-20s with professional experience in developing interactive 3D applications with Unity.
      SWARMED will feature both a 'free-play mode' and a campaign with mid-sized maps that leads the player through a story while explaining the gameplay and introducing him / her to the survivors: a core group a few 'hero' characters the player starts with (each one a detailed character with backstory, hopes and dreams), and more 'heroes' (total not more than 20, probably less) that the player can meet on the journey. In addition, randomly generated NPCs (less detailed and not directly controllable, similar to the way Dwarf Fortress handles its dwarves) can join your safe zone – if you let them.
      We plan to release a few 'Origin' prototypes that showcase individual gameplay systems and meanwhile give a gentle introduction to the characters you will meet in the game. Origin I, showcasing the build system and many fundamental elements like character controls and interactions, is finished and will be released soon. Next up, we're working on the dialog system to be presented in Origin II. Get in touch and we will provide more details and a playable version.
      We want you!
      We seriously think you should join the fun! We are looking for:
      Level Designers / Environment Artists, preferably with experience in Unity and procedural asset creation. Design and build maps with interesting visuals and proper pacing. 3D Artists. Our shacks, items and the dead guys' faces could use some plastic surgery. Can you do that? Writers. We have a bunch of characters to detail and a story to write ahead of us. Game Designers. We have a rough game design sketched out that needs improvement and completion. We need a balanced combat system, trees for constructions, workshops and character skills etc. PR & Community Managers, preferably with web development experience. We want to build a community around the game, and we need you to plan and manage this (with the help of the rest of the team, of course). 2D Artists / UX Designers, preferably with Unity UI experience. Our menus still look pretty dull, and we don't like that. We also need concept art for characters and iconic game moments to define their look and feel. Coders. If you know your way around Unity and C#, there are lots of challenging things to be done. You will work closely together with the two programmers already on the team to get going quickly. Please drop me a message or contact info@three-eyed-games.com
