Exciting times here, because I uploaded a new update video!
Watch it here: https://youtu.be/Oadg8-SIuYM
In the video I show off that the multiplayer actually works, the updated map, an experimental feature and the biggest addition to the project yet!
Summary of the new stuff:
- Netcode performance up by 40% by switching from binaryformatter to protobuff.
- Better project organization. (Game and server now share a dll)
- Ported to unity 5.
- Main menu scene updated (Flying camera and no more Vortex Tower)
- Updated the UI
- A whole new world…
- Server can now be started from in the game.

So, I’ve been working a lot on my game lately.
I wanted to show what I’m up to.
Hopefully I can show off the multiplayer too soon.
So what’s this game about?
It’s a multiplayer first person shooter.
An fps? There are so many already! What’s gonna be different?
The difference will be that you are the commander of squads of bots. You can issue commands to them to e.g. take a certain position or capture a building. This can lead to very tactical, yet exciting gameplay. I can’t give exact details, as I still need to implement it in the game.
Also there’s a real war going on. When you want to engage in a battle, you’ve got to choose where. To do that you’ll see a map of the EU and the USA (the two countries that are at war) with many provinces. A province can be in the hands of the EU or the USA. The provinces are going to be large (for example: South England, Rühr area, North Texas, etc.). The country that wins the most battles in that province on the front in a certain amount of time, gets hold of that province. The goal? Take the capital of the enemy.
This province map will be shared between all the online players. So when you join the game, you need to join a country.
Can you show us a video?
Of course! Here’s a link 😉
If you have any questions/suggestions, please reply!
I’d love to see some feedback!
