Project have started! Badlands is right now in very early stage, but you dont create a game in one day right? Environment is on the first place, atmosphere Im trying to have is desolate area, with epic (I mean really epic) backgrounds.
Weapons - yes, Badlands will have weapons system. It wont be run and gun shooter, ammo you gather will be really precious. Dont waste it. Keep it in safe place.
Enemies - environment will be your main enemy, but there will be other 'seekers', who may offer you something, but many of them will have agressive stance towards you.
Thats how is project going..
