  1. Alright guys, I'm very sad. Hopefully in this article you can relate and keep me in your thoughts OR find some helpfulness. We recruited a team member who had a team. He has a very talented team member with him, and when I asked for work, he showed me the good guys work. Since then, we've discovered that he does no work and mooches off of others. So we fired him. He has since spammed our forums with complete lies. We then showed a proof of purchase, showing that he was lying about us using HIS assets. Now, he's been private messaging me and telling people on our facebook that we've shut down. Thankfully, there was only one facebook fan and we'll create a new one soon. We cut advertising for the old one. See the forum here:http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/158344-Not-Dead-Enough-a-zombie-apocalypse-simulator-now-in-production!/page30. Feel free to create an account here and drop him a PM :D. Anyway, he's Backwardsstudios if you want. He should be banned soon anyway :D. Anyway, it's very troubling, but he's done more damage to himself now, he has no power :). Anyway, here are our tips! Do your research. Make sure this guy is legit. Do google image searches for stuff similar to the work he shows you. Ask many questions, don't be afraid. Make sure he's not a jerk when you hire him. That's all I can say, thanks guys. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
  2. Thanks. We are working on motion sickness :D. You have to click inventory, then weapon slot. Thanks!

    Alpha release- EARLY!

    Done! Finished the article.
  4. Alright, I've had to re-write this 3 times, thanks to my computer. First off, thanks Milcho for requesting this! If you have any questions about our game, feel free to ask, we'll write something up. Anyway, we'll be discussing our 12 levels of quality in Not Dead Enough. So each item has 12 levels of quality- 12 is best, 1 is worst- including guns and food. We decided to do this when we were on Skype one night. We knew we would need some kind of System for things to deteriorate, because in real life, all things do that! We couldn't think of anything, but then we decided on levels of quality. Once again, in real life, An item deteriorates by time, not just instantly, so that's why we decide on the 12 levels of quality. We went for 12, because that seems like a reasonable amount of steps. 1st step is normal, second is a little bit stale, 3rd is more, and so on until 12. Now we'll go more in-depth about the system! First is guns. Guns can take a total of 100 shots before being destroyed. You'll never get off 1000 shots most likely, because you'll probably never find that much ammo- melee is the way to go. But with several shots, your gun goes down a level or two, and with each level it goes down, there is more of a chance of it jamming and\or breaking unexpectedly. Lastly we have food. It deteriorates and gets moldy over time, just like guns. But with food, I think that your health and food bar goes DOWN if you eat something too nasty. Hope this helped Milcho! In our final game, you can look forward to: animals melee weather system nicer maps AI (Joining groups with AI, bad AI, good AI). [size=1]And maybe, possibly, co-op. [size=1]Thanks Milcho for the request, and if you have questions, please ask! Also, pics of our map are here: http://www.indiedb.com/games/not-dead-enough-nde/images/new-environment-assets-and-aim-down-sights#imagebox

    Navyman, I'm not sure exactly, but just a decent PC works fine.

  8. Thank for the feedback. Yes, this is made in Unity. We'll try specular mapping.
  9. We're so close to BETA that I can literally taste it. When I came up with the idea of this game, I never dreamed that it would come nearly as close as it did. I have to thank my team for that. BETA will be in a month if you didn't know, and if you're interested, drop a comment and I'll PM you with the download link. So, here's the zombie and character models! Tell us what you think!

All we need to do until beta is finish zombie and character models, and then animate them. This should be done in the upcoming weeks. The BETA will most likely be closed, so here is how you can get a chance at receiving it. All you have to do is comment anywhere, either on this news article, on the game page, or on our company page. That's all. If you win, then we will PM you with the link to the download. Sound good? Well, good.[/font][/color] [color=rgb(51,51,51)][font='Trebuchet MS', sans-serif, Tahoma, Arial, Verdana][indent=1]New Team So, we are now partnering with another team called backwards studios.

    Planning for the Future

    Thanks for the nice comments. We realize we'll catch some falk from it, but we're still going to go for it :D.

    Planning for the Future

    As much as we'd love to have some people convert, we won't try to be too pushy, but more of an action packed thriller. We are kind of basing it loosely off of the Left Behind series, which was a best-seller christian book. All of this is prophesied in the bible.

    Planning for the Future

    Survive the 7 years of war, and fight.
  14. Hey guys, I just wanted to say hello, and we haven't done an update for a while. We have a new gun ready for you, as well as our character controller. You can try out the controller here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/28501152/Cus...WebPlayer.html It's a bit glitchy because while the controller is almost done, zombie AI is still in there, and it's a WIP. Also, we have some terrain: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/135029092/Assets.html and a gun that can shoot with firework particles at the moment: http://eclipseofwar.site40.net/Map.html. But today I wanted to talk about the future. This game still has several months of development, but the future and the end of the game, which is sad, is inevitable. I've talked to a couple of people on the team, and while we still have to confirm several members, we plan on keeping the team long-term to produce more games and quality content. And with that, we have a good foundation for another game that we plan to start development with after this project: The biblical end times: every Christian disappears, leaving the world in chaos. Husbands looking for wives, parents looking for children. People become savages. There are many excuses for what happened: alien invasions, nuclear radiation. But you know the truth. You turned from the ways of God, and now you've been left behind while the Christians were taken to heaven. The last seven years of mankind have began. Then a strong man will rise to power, claiming to be able to solve the worlds problems, performing miracles. Many believe him to be the messiah, but you know better: he's the anti-Christ, the Deceiver. He is here to destroy. Soon, he makes people take a mark of loyalty in the left hand or forehead. Many people do it, but you know that if you take it, you will burn in Hell for all of eternity because the Bible states in Rev. 14:9-12 states: "For any man takes the mark of the Beast and worships his image, for he will burn in brimstone and fire for all of eternity." Christianity is soon banned. People are allowed to kill christians on the streets. If you don't have the mark, you'll be beheaded. Then, it's the war between good and evil. Weapons of mass destruction are revealed. People are executed on the streets. Will you be able to live for the seven years, and be there for Christ's return? Because in the end, God will crush the anti-Christ, and all of the Christians and the people that turned to him will be in a New Heaven and reign with Christ for eternity. And the cool part? This is all predicted in the book of Revelation in the Bible! This will be a very explosive and unique idea for a video game. We want to finish our first game first, and then we will start development on this. What do you guys think of this idea?
