Future Plans :)

Update: Well the vote is going for another long term project… but pretty even.. I really want a break for a bit as the last one almost killed me.. So I will take it under advisement.. M.E. 2.0 will come either way 😉

Update: wow just got back from my 7 year olds baseball game were the other team was not only throwing their illegal bats but 2 parents literally were yelling fighting words at our coach after yelling put downs at our 7 year olds… amazing how times have changed… and how well this iPhone4 takes video that can be emailed without having to expend to much energy 😉 I love technology…

Update: Awesome stuff I have a fully functional serialization and scene graph system in just a few nights =).. all types supported and it is fast as lightning -).. Full implementation of OpenGL_ES 2.0… Now on to the shaders! I need to get the light map side of things done for this model I have as a test. =-)

Well after writing all that I think I will make a poll to see what I should do based off interest -)

While I update Mission Europa I am going to make a quick FPS rts type of game that follows Dungeon Keeper. It will be an engine builder while I update SouL_EnginE to Open_GL es 2.0… I could not tackle M.E. 2.0 ____________ (I already have a name)… It wil be made over the next few months while I update M.E. and make the changes people like ;)… No fear the next big game will be a FPRPG.. 😉 Those are my favorite and it will be a graphical beauty with all the bells and whistles out there now that I will be dropping support for anything that does not support OpenGL es 2.0 😉

So by Christmas I should be gearing up for M.E. 2… 😉 it will be more of a fantasy game with guns ;).. Think more of the old Rift universe.. The book based RPG game of old.. LOTS of BIG plans for it.. for now I need a short game that I can put 50/50 into M.E. and upgrading the engine and its tools 😉

Something like the below video… now do not forget you can go first person at anytime and posses characters to play them in first person… This is a MUCH easier game to make 😉

Of course this could all change if M.E. sales get nuts 😉 or I change my mind it is REALLY early in the process of upgrading the engine.. 😉

  1. Just to be sure I didn’t miss anything :
    – you are graphically updating ME
    – while doing so you plan to create a “small” RTS dungeon keeper-like game
    – next big bang will be a FPRPG ( If sales continue it will be a sequel to Mission Europa… but in Hell… not to spoil anything 😉 with great lighting and graphics that come with an opengl upgrade =). plus I just bought an iPad 2 ;l) so I can finally target it correctly 😉

    If it’s indeed what you’re planning, well… I yet can’t wait to see all that !

    1. No ME will only get gameplay updates and fixes like any released game ;).. I could not move ME to Opengl es 2.0 I would loose half the audience =/.

      While I work on the engine I need a project to build it and this would be the game 😉

      Yes next large project will be an amazing FPFPS with all I have learned 😉 learned from Necro and M.E. and you guys!

      1. Thank you!! Do not do a game with the OpenGL 2.0. It won’t work on my iPod. I will not be happy.

      2. Good ! Thanks for making things clear, once more =)

        Souds just like a perfect plan to me. I’m eager to see what’s coming up from you !

  2. Now that you got your ipad ( nice!)..how come when I open your blog pages w mine? it won’t work? Used to untill you changed something..
    Any game will be a quest in it’s self 😉 but voted for the smaller one..summer is coming 😉

    1. I have code that says
      if (user == “DOOM”) then Do_Not_Open_And_Erase_Drive();

      LOL.. no idea man.. this is hosted by word press on their servers.. no changes here.. maybe it is trying to goto the mobile site!..

      3.5 WEEKS until I get it wow

  3. Man I want an iPod 4 but their so expensive >_> I know the fifth gen will come thIs year imma save up for it! Oh yea 50-50 on the poll O_O lol

    1. Me too. My B-Day is in July, so I’ll probably just wait till then and get a ton of money, then buy one. Last year I got $210 total for my B-Day.

  4. I do like ME very much, but I’d like to see what that other thing you are working on will turn out like : D
    bet it’s going to be another great game, keep up the good work Ryan! : P

  5. Hey I have an ipod 2nd gen and there is quite a bit of frame-rate loss here and there. I know it wouldn’t be very time-worthy but is it possible you culd fix it somehow?

    1. I’ve reached level 2 and the lag has become severe enough to make it virtually unplayable. It took me round 5 minutes to kill 3 creatures in level 2…

      1. I will check it out.. I have an iphone 2n gen. I burned my ipod obviously… I could definately just make a variable a bit lower for the very slowest devices…

        That is strange though and unplayable I would not call it when I play on my device. Is anything else running? Are you jail broken?

        Update 1 will really fix all memory leaks I know of through my memory manager (will help) After Update 1 let me know how it goes….it is in review still…

        And a question as I do not know does nova 2 run on that device? Just curious about that one really.

  6. I played Level 2 one more time and for some reason nothing is wrong (except for the common frame-rate issues). I do have a jailbroken ipod but I don’t believe that is causing much of an issue. I checked to make sure I have a bit of storage memory left and I have around 700mb. I also checked how much RAM(or whatever you call it on the ipod)it has left while playing and ME and it has around 19mb. I don’t have Nova 2 because of the memory it takes and I’m really not all that fond of it. I do have modern combat 2 and that has some serious lag issues.

    Thanks for the support. Your one of the few people that actually look into my problems with games…

  7. Really interested in seeing your take on a Dungeon Keeper kind of game! But hey, either way, enjoy your well-deserved break!
