Hey Folks! Sadly I couldn´t implement all features I wanted, because I had to finish everything before the deadline for the 15th IGF. So in this version...
Sky Titans is a very unique first person shooter. Your gravity is relative to your rotation.
It´s a first person shooter based in a futuristic world. The game contains 3 different playing modes:
The game is about the 4 major space federations who want to get a new found element called Trytorinium, which can only be found on several planets in the Unknown sectors. The federations use the newest technology including the new Gravity-Boots. This Gravity-Boots allow you to walk on every surface. You can walk around edges, on walls, on the top of the room and so on.
Integrated in the Boots you also get a kind of “jetpack” which is used for “special jumps”. Those special jumps allow you to move free in space so you can move to other platforms.
The federations are hostile so they fight each other in order to get the valuable and mighty Trytorinium, which makes them rich and powerful but every fraction has its own real reasons.
“You, soldier, are a mercenary for one of the more peaceful federations. They hired you because of your unusual skills in tactical warfare and your great knowledge of advanced technology. The “Northern Galaxy Trading Company (NGTC) makes good profit right now and they can’t tolerate to let others have the new found element, which would overthrow the whole balance of powers and trading they created.
Seriously, it is a demolition job and it is up to you if you will operate in silence or not but I guess you are probably the best man for the job.
Good luck soldier!”
But what they all don ´t know is that the chosen planets have guards which will never give their source of power into foreign hands – The Sky Titans…
Story for Multiplayer:
The multiplayer shows what happens parallel to the main plot where the mightiest fractions fight for the control of planets with Tryranium. They developed small task forces for attacking each other but sometimes scavengers of the whole galaxy fight for themselves and also try to get a bit of this power.
In the Coop Mission you and your friend are trapped on one of the Tryranium planets infested by the breed of the Sky Titans. Your goal is to fight your way through them until you find something what allows you to escape.
- Never walk alone …
If you have constructive criticism please tell me and I will see what I can do.
Although i´ve already crossed the deadline, i´m still working hard to get the new version ready soon!
Don´t forget to vote for Sky Titans as Indie of the Year!
Also I have a website now! Would be great if you could visit it:
Please also follow Sky Titans on Facebook and Twitter and also subscribe to my YouTube Channel!
You'll find the links to them on my website!
I´ve changed a lot of things, starting from HUD placement to Level Design and more stuff.
Login System is already implemented and works as it should. I still have no idea what kind of achievements I could implement, so maybe you could help me out with that!
You can play in Ranked Mode or Unranked Mode.
So people who don´t want to register can just type their Usernames in there and start playing right off.
The maps have been changed and improved (I hope) to get a better and more balanced gameplay.
Besides that I hope that I can provide MoCap Animation for my models, but that depends on when my Package arrives.
Serverlists now works for both, LAN and Online.
I hope to get more out of the Game Engine in order to achieve better Visuals. But that (sadly) is low priority right now.
However the whole codebase is much more stable now.
There are new Gamemodes I´ll explain later.
If there is any talented musician out there, it would be a pleasure to work with you!
Please comment on what you would like to see in this game! I really need some further ideas!
You can also head me in the right direction concerning the story!
Here are some screens which should give you an impression of the new modes:
