May want to take care to distance yourself from a fallout game - alike.

It is very possible and I wish you the best of luck young-un.
It’s a fun idea to play with.


#3

Thanks. It’s not actually THAT similar to Fallout. It’s actually very different. I’ll keep posting about the project later on.

Thanks again and bye!


#4

I like to see your story about this and good luck.


#5

I have to agree with @Snoe this game seems really similar to Fallout: New Vegas (great game if you have ever played it)
and Just a heads up the name “New Dawn” is also the name of the main antagonist cult in the Best of Us WiP.


#6

We have to be able to break into the White House. The fence is too low, the secret service agents were “surprised” the bushes didn’t stop us, and the doors were left unlocked, all with yakety sax playing in the background.


#7

hmmm… by the sound of it, this may turn out into a very potentially big story… that is… if you tend to it well… I’d really love to see it

… and um… try not to describe it EXACTLY like the description for Fallout: New Vegas… I know it wont be the same… but use a different description or synopsis…

… and it seems that you’ll be focusing on the story more… be mindful of it. finish something first, then move on to the next. and ALWAYS… remember the little things = )

All and all, I’d really love to see your story :smile:


#8

Um…What???


#9

I love it already and I haven’t even played the demo that is not up yet.


#10

Reference to what happened at the White House last year.


#12

Thanks Michael. This game is actually a blend of many games. The atmosphere of Metro, the exploration of Fallout and deep role-playing. Everything will be connected with the main story. Make one choice and it will affect your whole storyline.


#13

Thank you very much Alyssa! Yes, there will be references to the Fallout games and a beta soon.

Thanks for the support!


#14

Thanks for the info, RyseAbove! I did not know about that name, though.


#15

Seems Like a instresting concept to play around with, But I do heavily suggest that you have the main character star out in a city that hasn’t been in the fallout games and when I say fallout games I mean the whole bunch such as Fallout 1, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout Brother Hood of Steel, Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, and Fallout 4. List of all cites used in fallout games: Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Chicago, Boston, Washington D.C, And Carbon, Texas. So maybe some place like New Orleans or maybe Philadelphia?


#16

… that’s good enough to sell the game as it’s description :laughing:. a little spur of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in there an you’re golden :gem:
… that’s actually a diamond, but… you get what I mean :+1:

also, if you’re gonna be using an inventory system, make sure it’s neat. if not, then you probably should… you are gonna be surviving in the wasteland after all, right?

so… is it a BIG game? a LONG game? a SHORT but FUN game? a BIG, LONG, and FUN game? (That last one would normally be boring without the “fun” part)

who knows? it could be SHORT and NOT FUN if you die in the first few chapters… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#17

Hi Exodus_Effect!

The game actually spans out over a huge series of cities. And the best part is that you can explore more than 350 areas throughout the game.


#18

Hi Michael!

Haha, thanks. I might not include an inventory system but I definitely will include the ability to use the weapons you’re carrying around during combat. Like,

PLAYER: “They just keep on clawing their way through.”

Choices:
Blow the head off the Mutant. (Use SHOTGUN)
Slice the head of the Mutant. (Use KATANA)

You will be able to blow or slice off other body parts as well


#19

Alright, That’s good enough :+1:

… shotgun? or Katana?.. Why not both?

inserts Katana into Shotgun barrel *

Crafting could be a harder play, but it would make things fun :smiling_imp:


#20

Yay I get to use a sword slicing and dicing


#21

Remember, Radiation Poisoning might also be included in the game.
