The reception of Nuclear Dawn went down extremely well, with 15,000 unique visitors and 500 beta signups in the *first hour* alone. The forum community is alive and kicking with a ton of activity from some pretty crazy people, so make sure you check them out.
This weekend we finished another alpha playtest that we'd had to put off due to the madness brought about by the site launch! During this alpha we had a few industry level designers partake, hopeful in the aim that we'd interest them into building a level within our alpha>beta development process. If any of you are curious on the gameplay factor of Nuclear Dawn, well everyone who took part in the alpha left with a big grin on their face.
I guess we're obligated to provide you all with some screenshots from the session, Well, here are some that I took, or rather the few ones I managed to take while not taking some severe punishment courtesy of the rest of the dev team. I’m beginning to think my fellow team members are holding a grudge against me.
It’s probably worth mentioning that the level seen here is something RobertB threw together in less than a week. Its sole purpose is to test another new map layout for a new game mode we've implemented to test the core features of the FPS gameplay.
We're still looking for an animator and another coder to join the ranks of the team to hasten the arrival of the projects beta stages so if you're interested email contact(at)nuclear-dawn.net
