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.
I´ve come to the point where i can show you my forecast for the new version.
The new version will be a major upgrade to previous version. It will be a milestone release (hopefully). Thus the release will be around the end of summer/beginnig of fall.
Now here are the new features i´m working on:
You can now create an account in order to save you states and keep track of your progress
You will get special rewards for killing in a row without dying (No Gravity, No Recoil, Unlimited Mode)
This will feature new Gameplay mechanics, such as Capture the Relais, Save the Generator and much more (More details about Gamemodes later)
-Rank Mode/Fun Mode:
This feature will come together with the Login System. This means if you want to play without registering, then you can play the Fun Mode. If you want to keep track of your Achievements,Kills, etc. then you´ll have to register and play in Rank Mode
-New Maps/Enhanced Musicsystem/Enhanced Graphic:
There is a music system in 1.9, but it´s very rough. I also really hope to find a modeller/leveldesigner to enhance the graphics
-Chapter 1 of the Story Mode:
I really hope to finish the first Chapter of the Story Mode. I´ll finish at least the first Mission
The minimalistic Menu will be replaced with a normal menu with Settigs and everything
-New Sound Library:
I will switch from DirectSound to OpenAL which will allow me to apply effects on sounds
Will be redesigned
-Better LAN Support:
LAN Serverlists and so on
Bots can also be added to a multiplayer match
-Tons of bugfixes:
Also self explanatory
I apologize for my english since it´s not my mother language. There might be lots of grammarmistakes.
