Finished Episode One!
The story is about Joan of Arc's battles to free all of France from English invaders, and her quest given to her by the "Saints"
The single-player "Joan of Arc" campaign game is 7 battles long, with stories "cutscenes" before each battle, as well as two tutorial levels.
Also included are 6 or so bonus 2-player co-op missions as well as PvP with custom armies. Yeah, I ended up cramming a lot of content into this contest :)
No sound yet -- I might sneak in an update tomorrow with sound.
I plan on updating the website a bit tomorrow as well, and I'll write a postmortem in the next few days.
Here's a screenshot, I'll post additional screenshots in a new post below.
Original entry follows:
Everyone always says, "Indie developer X, don't make an MMO! It's way out of your budget and timeframe!"
Also, "MMORTS? Not possible!"
So I logically took the challenge and decided to combine them into a MMORPGRTS. And do it in 30 days. And make it free-to-play (FTP)
Oh, and everything is done by me. XNA 4 + FlatRedBall engine. That means Windows only, sorry :(
So, here's what I got so far:Website
You can download and play it right now! (Let me know if anything doesn't work or if the server goes down, thanks!)
It seems pretty stable but then again I haven't had more than two people playing at once :) It should support about 200 people... in theory...
What works well:
- 2 Player Co-op and 2 Player PvP!
I'm still working on:
- Story -- I have the mysticism story in my head, I'm working on adding it into the game.
- Single Player -- This goes along with Story, I'm still fleshing out the single player campaign
- More PvP optionsThanks for this great contest!
