[DEFERRED PAYMENT/REVSHARE PROJECT] Cold Comfort

Recommended Posts

TL;DR:  zombie shooter game, looking for UE4 Coder and writer

Cold Comfort is an asymmetrical Multiplayer Zombie Tactical Shooter (MZTS?!) with a focus on co-op and environmental destruction. (Currently under development)
I started this project two years ago on my own, and in the last 6 months I've been getting more people involved in the project. Presently there are 20 of us! As most of the team is spread out across the globe, we do the majority of our collaboration online on Discord.

This is a deferred payment project. We use HackNPlan to organize the project and to log hours, which will be paid out once the game has been released.

We are planning on doing a Kickstarter the first half of this year and hopefully release the game in 2019..

We are in need of:
- a UE4 Coder
- an author ( for the audio script, and lore)
. VFX Artist

More info on the project can be found on our website and on our community discord channel

It looks very cool.

On what platforms will the game come out?
And where it will be possible to buy it?

We're focusing on Windows at first. 

Working on getting an Alpha out in early 2018 and the game itself in 2019.

Hello @White_crow thanks for your questions!

We are planning on an initial release for PC, however depending on how well our Kickstarter goes (which we have planned within the next few months) we are hoping to make Cold Comfort available on console as well.

As we are still in the pre-alpha phase, we are keeping our options open in regards to distribution.

From the description and screenshots the game is similar to Left 4 dead.

What will be the differences?

 

When is the kickstarter planned?

 

Whether the game is connected with the SCP?

Yes, there are similarities, for sure! L4D and Rainbow Six Siege have been two of the greatest references points for us. 
In Cold Comfort, you can play as either a Survivor, or a Gamma Prime (genetically mutated zombie). Each class is unique in their abilities (not dissimilar to R6). 
An added feature of Cold Comfort is the Survivor's ability to control Survivor AI, and on the flip side, some of the Gamma Primes can control the Zombie AI. 

We are planning our Kickstarter within the first half of the year :)

We regularly post updates and announcements on the Discord Community Server, as well at sneak peeks concerning audio tracks, 2D and 3D art, animations and a lot of other development material! 


You can also get your Alpha Access guaranteed if you get there in time; and maybe you'll win a skin or two too?

Wow, this looks like a really cool project, when will we be able to play this game?

 

We're still in the pre-alpha phase, but we hope to have a working multiplayer alpha version up on steam this year.

      We are a growing team of hobbyists working on a small prototype for a horror game called Soulanity. We are working in Unreal Engine 4 and we need a few more members to help see this project to completion.

      All team members must be active on discord and willing to show up to team meetings.  You will need a good internet connection to download the project and any updates. Beginners are welcome, but you need to be motivated and capable of working independently. Any profits gained from our projects will be split evenly among the team.
      The positions we need:
      Level Designer – We have one level designer who has done an awesome job so far, but they don’t have as much time to work on the project anymore, so we need someone to help complete the map
      3D Artist – We still need 3d models for general props like books, tools, shelves, janitorial supplies, and some organic modeling for characters and the environment.
      Rigging/Animation – Still need animations for the player character, the main antagonist, and 2 smaller mobs.
      Unreal Engine Programmer – This game is currently entirely coded in blueprints. Most of the basic gameplay mechanics are complete but there is still much more to do.
       
      If you are interested in joining the team just add me on Discord and we’ll have a chat. Tibsun#1244

      Hi,
      I'm trying mix two textures using own shader system, but I have a problem (I think) with uniforms.
      Code: https://github.com/HawkDeath/shader/tree/test
      To debug I use RenderDocs, but I did not receive good results. In the first attachment is my result, in the second attachment is what should be.
      PS. I base on this tutorial https://learnopengl.com/Getting-started/Textures.

      Hello I am looking for a team who are willing to work on a Realistic, Large, Story-based, Open-World, Survival, Horror game. I'm looking for a team that is willing to stay with me through the whole project. 
      For this project I will be needing:
      3D Modeler: Somebody who has a good understanding on how to create 3D models through Blender, Maya, 3DS Max, or any other Modeling programs of their choosing Animator: Someone able to rig and animate humans, non-humans, and machines. Artist: Someone able to make art for loading screens, GUIs, and Cover art. Environment Artist (2-3): Someone able to create a large open world for the players to explore Writer: Someone who has experience writing story-lines and can write dialogue for this project Sound Engineer: Somebody who can create sounds for character movements, environment, and animals     Ideas for The Project: - Shipwrecked on an island after getting caught in a storm out on the ocean - Start on the boat with all your friends and a bunch of NPCs where the ship doesn't crash until you talk to the captain - Able to search wreckage to find food, water, and a basic tool. - Locked areas in the wreckage that you need special tools or codes to open. - Secret chests you can find on the island through maps that you can find in abandoned houses, shacks, and wreckage of pirate ships. - Fishing rods to go fishing for different kinds of fish. - Cooking system to cook food on a grill or campfire which requires propane tanks or wood to continue burning - Underwater and land caves with plenty of resources - Mutant bosses that you can fight above or under water - Underwater life (Sharks, Fish, Large underwater Squid boss)   These are just ideas they may or may not be implemented in the final product. Any feedback on ideas for the game would be appreciated.   We will be setting up a kickstarter for people to support this, if this project gets up going, so watch for that.

      I have seen a number of posts about this topic but was wondering what the most effective way is. I have been working on a project in unreal engine 4 and am struggling to get virtual reality mode to work in the engine. A route I am pursuing to solve the problem is to use the unity game engine. I have a virtual reality template set up in unity and need to export the project from unreal engine 4 into unity. Whats the best way to export the project from UE4 and than import into unity?
