Huge project coming up!

So, I've decided to let you all in on my newest game. It's a 3d open world zombie survival game. I haven't thought of a title, so let me know if you have any suggestions.

The primary features:

- Large, open world
- Towns, cities, highways, etc.
- Zombies (duh)
- Day/night cycle system
- Vehicles (Buggy and chopper)
- Easter eggs, hidden areas, and more!

This project is VERY early in development, but FPS kit 2 helped me get a jump start!

Below is a screenshot of the first city (still a WIP). I'll probably finish this by Christmas. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know!

Huge project coming up!

Will there be a beta test?
If so, I'd love to be a part of it!

larrynachos responds:

Yeah, I'll be uploading the file as I continue to develop. The first one will probably be tomorrow night, or perhaps tonight, depending on how far I get today.

Dude u should add a feature to create your own weapons.

larrynachos responds:

Like a crafting system? That sounds cool, but I have no idea how to do it.

my suggestion? dont make a crappy game. this plan is fool proof. if you dont make a crappy game by default it will be good.

but seriously good luck.

I'm very happy for you, but I find that there's one problem.

What makes this game different than any other zombie survival game?

Does it evoke a feeling of solitude?

Does it have monsters besides zombies?

You have to set your game apart from the rest in order to be successful, if you don't then it'll just be another generic zombie game that everyone will ignore.

I know it's very early in development, but you might want to start thinking about this sooner or later.

Either way, I still can't wait to see the outcome!

If you need help with game design or story, feel free to PM me.

I'll gladly help you. ^^

larrynachos responds:

I dunno, it's just gonna be another open world zombie game. Creating a good feeling of solitude is hard, but I can try my best.

I was gonna add bandits, but I can't get the scripts right. I might also do a cave with spiders or something.

I was also gonna put in some destructible buildings, but there's a terrain/ridged body collision issue that makes the ridged body objects fall through the terrain.
