    FallNation Protocol is activated

    Dear agents, FallNation protocol is activated. Read the situation report bellow. FallNation is a RPG Adventure in a post-apocalyptic world where survival of humanity depends on the battlefield. Death infection is everywhere. World is crowded of good damn soldiers, but it is the leadership what makes the real difference between a horrible defeat and the glory victory. That’s why you will not only have the Third Person Shooter view, but also the Tactical View to command your troops in a Real Time Strategyagainst all the menaces, including the living ones and the death others. FallNation is the last resort government applies when Nation is already fallen and there’s no way back. As a Federal Agent, you will have access to secret facilities and emergency resources in a complete Worldmap with army management. Besides, there will be missions you must complete around the Worldmap. One advice: be wary of the events that are about to come. You have to be capable to manage every situation on your own behalf. After releasing Project BlockchainZ and recently analyzed its results, this new protocol becomes operational in June. Keep in contact in our Discord Server: https://discord.gg/PPAed7Z. News and updates are coming.

    Project BlockchainZ [Available on itch.io]

    Hey there! It's been a long time since our last update. But no worries, we are now here to present you the new steps we are taking. Big changes are coming. Just because Project BlockchainZ connected too many people and it's getting bigger and bigger, we started to work in a new prototype, also known as V2. This prototype is the logical evolution of Project BlockchainZ and, after a long time thinking about its design, its naming and many other aspects of this new game, we finally decided to call it FallNation. At this point, we understood our Discord Server needed a big change to be aligned to the whole story we are constructing behind theses video games. And that's why we've just changed our name. From now, you will find us on Discord by the name of the ARF Initiative. About the ARF Initiative ARF Initiative includes not only Project BlockchainZ and FallNation, but also the full scope game, which is based in these two prototypes. We believe the best way to reach the goal (ARF video game) is by giving you some prototypes and so we all together can experience the gameplay and obtain a very useful feedback. That's why Project BlockchainZ and FallNation exists. Project BlockchainZ is a military program simulation government created to prepare soldiers in case of a big threat. FallNation is the emergency protocol government activates when the Nation has fallen. The main purpose is to ensure the survival of the people and the complete management of the hazard. ARF is based in a shattered world far in the future, full of dangers, collapsed by a horrible menace (can´t say much more right now). As you might see, logo is under construction. ARF is the full scope game and formed by Project BlockchainZ and Fallnation. ARF is coming soon. Big things are coming. This is the beginning of everything. Hope you now understand where are we going to and how happy we feel to share this video game with all of you. If you want to know more about our video game, including every project, do not doubt. Join our Discord Server! Thanks a lot for the support, guys!

    Project BlockchainZ [Available on itch.io]

    Hi everyone! After some months working on the next version of Project BlockchainZ, aka V2, this new prototype has a new name, includinglogo and a few lines about storyline. And the new name is... There was a time when living was about just breathing. But not today, not now. The dead get up and walk. the anger of the dead spreads like a bloody outhbreak to every corner of the planet. The dead live, but they do not breathe anymore. The world has fallen. Collapsed byt the dead threat and its turhless rotten flesh, human beings began a total war that lasted as long as the wars usually last: too much. The consequences? The extinction of the majority of the nations around the world. After the disastrous failure of the war, also known as Project BlockchainZ, the government in the last attempt to save the day, activated its last and desperate resource, a long time forgotten protocol. This classified emergency protocol only becomes operational when the nation has definitely fallen, and there is no way back. This last resource, known as the fallNation protocol, wants to ensure the survival of the humanity, nothing else. With this few lines we wanna invite you to discuss about the new game in our discord server: https://discord.gg/PPAed7Z Thanks for all the support!
  6. Very nice post, Brain. Your game dev is getting really interesting.

    Hey there! It's nice to see you again. How was everything going on? We are so glad to show you our new fresh Patch, 1.0.3b is ready to be downloaded for all of you, avid zombie killers, courageous trigger-happy soldiers. This Patch is full of improvements, notes about bugs solutions and a few surprises just to drive you crazy like a zombie holding a brain. Are you ready to find out the latest features and improvements for Project BlockchainZ? Shut up and dance with zombies! About Project BlockchainZ Patch 1.0.3b Just because we know how important is the feeling of being a zombie, we have reworked the Reactions, so these noisy hungry creatures will react better to different situations. It means the undead will not only find the best way to rush over you, but also throw to the floor and feed your body once they kill you. And you will be the bloody witness who presence this pretty carnage, whether you have set the highest quality options or the lowest, thanks to the new performance mode in the options menu which is intended for low systems (Will reduce the number of enemies, but they will be a bit harder)s we have included, with only pressing one single button in settings. But please, do not worry about the zombie attack, because right now your soldiers will shoot them with no doubts. Unlucky, raiders will do the same to you, too. Say thank you to the improvements! Don't forget to run away from the enemies, if they are destroying your defenses. Just run like a gazelle would do, trying to scape from the clawns of the lion. But remember that stamina last only so long for a single run, and after that, you will run slower, of course. But not the zombies. So, take a cold head to recover the breath and so stamina in order to think your next step. We have balanced difficulty level, as many people asked us, and now Commander level is activated, or what people get used to calling the crazy level. Because you are all allowed to kill zombies, whatever the experience you have. And talking about the difficulty range, we have a new feature for you, guys. We believe there is a chance to include a new weapon, something to kill enemies far away from them. Say hello to the sniper riffle, our new pretty toy which gives you the opportunity to kill your targets, no matter how far they are. Just by pressing the middle and right buttons mouse , you will aim your enemy. Do not hesitate: just shoot! It's free! Now you will have normal speed in bullet time, take advantage! Time is important , let's soldiers auto resolve battle! We know sometimes the smallest battles are a bit annoying. They aren't funny, because of these we include the auto resolve option. But be careful! Platoon without your expertise will have much more casualties. Take that in account and let them fight for you sometimes. What happens with the technology research system? Yeah, we know. It's been a little bit hard to understand how it works. Many questions about how to increase the initial amount, or how to upgrade the technologies for a better use. We've been working on it, so now you will see technology researchment dashboard more suitable and clearer. Besides, we have improved the Battle Mode Hud, in order to give a better feedback when the player wants to build a technology. We want you to build things easier, and we truly thing now it's gonna happen. But, if you have any further questions or any suggestion, please give us feedback right here and join us on Discord. We are so open to discuss about it. What makes the player enjoy the game, becomes important to us. About further development We are making great strides with the gameplay storyline. Now you can read the whole story of The Soldier Book in our Discord. Besides, you will see a few concept arts about the city environment we are developing and also the factions we are trying to include. Remember graphics are still not set, but we have something special working in progress: right now it is called V2, but it wil be our next step in the prototype evolution. This V2 will contain new graphics, a lot of new features, huge improvements in the worldmap, with new events and situations to play with, and of course a few story behind. This story will be a small step in the massive challenge we are facing: an amazing story that blows your mind and freaks you out like a spark in your brain. We will share every single step of V2, the next prototype for Project BlockchainZ. So, go for Discord, V2 will worth it! Patch 1.0.3b Notes: Quality optimizations for low pc systems. SFX improvements while winning or being defeated. Huge optimization in Start Menu. New auto resolve mode, that will avoid your some annoying battles. AI improvement for soldiers and raiders: now they don't stand for some time looking at the enemy withouth shooting. AI improvement for zombies: they find better ways to go over you, and also throw to the floor to eat you when they kill you. Stamina improvement: you run slower when stamina has been spent. Bullet time improvement: now player and bullets act in regular speed while everything goes slower. New crazy level mode: Commander New weapon: sniper riffle with telescopic sight. Fixed some bugs related to battle mode. Big optimization on building feature with new iconography for a better user experience. Fixed some bugs related to Bz Ammo amount. We really want you to enjoy these new improvements. By the way, if you find any bug, please tell us right here or through Discord: Thanks a lot for all the support, soldiers. It's great to know you are enjoying this prototype. Don't forget to follow us for further news. V2 is coming very, really very soon. Long gameplay life to project BlockchainZ!

    Project BlockchainZ

    Project BlockchainZ Welcome to the new 5XG Video game. 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 changed 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 must protect a bunker crowded of helpless people until the reinforcements arrive. There’s only one way to kill the damn zombies: the BlockchainZ Ammo. The BlockchainZ Ammo is hidden nearby the Raiders Storage. Search for the Bz Ammo and destroy the hordes of zombies, but beware of the raiders: they will take your 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 Storages 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 Download the prototype on itch.io: https://projectblockchainz.itch.io/projectbcz Feedback is so welcome! Please, join our Official Discord Server. This video game is like a big blank canvas. Right now, we really need the community feedback in order to get a good balance in the gameplay. So, we will update this thread to show you our improvements. Hope you download Project BlockchainZ and enjoy playing it. Any suggestions are always welcome. Thanks for all the support!

    [Bz Patch 2]: How to kill a bug

    Hey everybody! New Patch is here! Say hello to Patch 1.0.2b (Patch notes below) A new update with nice improvements for a better game experience. Firstly we have reworked so hard the AI, so now they will react much better to the different situations, more work will be added, like advanced behaviors, different animations and there will be more in futures patches! Also we've done optimizations in the shooting feedback, first we add some shake to the camera. Also we have been working a lot in the IK stuff so when you shoot the gun move the character's arms and shoulders. And we have changed nearly all the SFXs for a more interesting version. Give it a try, you will notice with the first shoot. What is IK? IK is the acronym for Inverse Kinematics. IK is an animation technique that allows much more responsive animations in games. Unfortunatelly, this improvement forces us to turn off the option to disable the Right/Left Angle shooting until the next patch 😢 You'll see that now the difficulty level is a little bit more harder (We also took out rookie level), because we want the video game to be a really interesting challenge for every zombie killer. Nobody said that killing zombies was easy. The real challenge is to survive until your reinforcements arrive. Finally, and not less important, we have corrected some nasty bugs! Are you capable to save the bunker? Prove it and save the world: https://projectblockchainz.itch.io/projectbcz PSD.: we are still working on the story. And now we are so happy to show you some of the concept arts we have prepared. Check it! When we started developing the video game, we had the idea to create a huge city completely ruined by thousands of years of struggling. It would be a desolated scenario... More on the Devlog What do you think? Let us know on our Discord Server. Patch Notes: General improve on AI, now the bandits reacts much better. Big optimization in shooting feedback. Camera improvements. SFX improvements. IK optimizations. New SFX for each every weapon. Now the foots adjust to the terrain. The character reacts when is hitted. Fixed zombie speed bug. Not the zombies let some space after attacks. Rookie challenge level removed. Now the challenge level includes the difficulty. Challenge level adjustment in order to create a more interesting challenge for the player. Fixed some related bugs on AI. Aiming by the left is temporarily disabled while improving the character's IK. Now you can't train the last civilian in the bunker. Fixed the bug related to the updates, now it works fine. Some adjustment to max units at the same time, to avoid performance hitccups Minor Bugs Additionally, we are working on the auto-resolve feature that let the easy battles be done without wasting time Eg. when you have 20 soldiers and fight against 3 raiders. These kind of battles have no sense at this point, so we believe player doesn't need to waste time them. Just focus in the good ones. Once we have this feature totally balanced and tested, we'll update it in the next update! We really hope you enjoy these new improvements. If you find any bug, please tell us right here or through our Discord Server. Thanks a lot for all the support you are bringing to us. It's great to know how do you feel about Project BlockChainZ.

    Project BlockchainZ [Available on itch.io]

    hi there! It's been a month since we released Project BlockchainZ. We are so happy with how the things are going on and all your help with every bug, every suggestion and feedback you are giving us through Discord. That's why we have decided to do a big change, a big improvement. Right now, gameplay is based in keeping the bunker in safe, and we are exploring the idea to level up the worldmap gameplay. we are going to do it with new more events in the worldmap, new ways to trade, new possibilities to interact, and also new technologies to use in the battle. Besides, we believe game prototype demands better graphics. This is a logical evolution, and even the next version will still be a prototype, graphics will be improved. So, at this moment graphics will be more realistic, based in 19th /21th century post-apocaliptic idea. So, we are working so hard on this new version of the game concept. This version will be FTP, too. And moreover we believe this prototype needs a new name despite the hilarius name we gave to the concept at first time (Project BlockchainZ), we are looking for a new one, more solid, more serious, more interesting. Well, We have some ideas about the new name for the V2 game (we can call this new version as V2, I think). BTW, the game concept is already available on itch.io for free! Right now, we are discussing about this new version on Discord. Feel free to participate in the conversation in our Discord Server.

    Hi there! I just recorded this video. It's just me VS 800 zombies. I won't show you wheter I win or not. Just take a look and see a different way to survive. BTW, the game is already available on itch.io for free! Right now, we are discussing about new technologies to include in the gameplay (turrets and drones, maybe). Feel free to participate in the conversation in our Discord Server.
