Update: Working it!
Here is where it sits… still working on animation and I need to work on the lighting and visual effects….
Then back to the list!!
Here is a shot of where it sits
I still bees to add the broken ground below the hand, clean up the tombstone, and animated the hand better. The I will add visual effects as I think it needs 😉 lighting needs a run also.
Working on it .. I need to fix the thumb and the animation … I have a lot of work to do on making it look awesome… I am going to add a post process vision blur effect … Some ground to come out of and the tombstone 😉 it has to look incredible as it is the first impression 😉 more later as I am posting from my iPhone and will be hard at work home soon 😉
I have one submission for Zang bloods voice! Good stuff.
Here is the next boss if You have a mic and would like to have a credit in this game record the lines for sloth below and email them to me .. =)..(Sloth will be recurring and I will need some more later but not to much he is a weaker demon…)
Sloth: I am called by the name sloth…..we have been watching you….O poor Zangblood your contract has expired it seems..
Sloth:I will take his soul and treat him to all the pleasures of hell. Now then there is the matter of the rest of you sad little souls. One of you is a very interesting soul mixed into a machine.
Sloth: We want you badly. However..the others ordered me to leave you alone for now and I could have Zangbloods soul. How tempted I am to lay waste to all you insects where you stand and taste your deaths.
Sloth:BUT… I must do ask I am told.. for now… I sense confusion and fear.. *Chuckles… you have much to learn mortals.. I think I will take just one more as I cannot resist..
Sloth: Ahh…better… I must go now. Do not grow to confident as I am sure you will see all of us soon.
Helper:That was rather unpleasant. Maybe I should be appreciative I do not contain a soul.
Helper:What exactly did he mean using the term US. We have to find a way to drive the demons back into the maws of Hell. For now we need to obviously find a safer place to reside.
Helper:Rest AI I am shutting you down so we can transmit ourselves to a newer husk….|
As far as tonights work I am still making the banshee soft intro scene. It needs to be kick ass as it is the first thing the player sees. Currently I am creating a creapy night scene with a tombstone close up, mountains in the distance, a HUGE glowing moon. On the tombstone is bansheesoft as if it was gone. Then a fist rips out of the ground in one flash and moves slow like in slow motion up with pieces of debri spinning in the frame then it whites out and whites into the title screen… =) rebirth baby…More later day job now,
Last weekend was a little to busy!… I had a bunch to do for the family and a wedding to attend. However, this week is all clear after hours for a bunch of work to get done =)… I have a little work on the level 1 end cut scene. and I am tossing the box intro and going back to making a banshee for the frontal intro with some cool effects. Other then that I just need to get to work =).. Alpha is coming soon. I would say about 2-4 weeks depending on how my after hour work time is =)… More later…
Want to a be a part of the game? … do you have a microphone and a decent skill at making voice recordings?
I have posted below here Zangbloods lines for level 1. Record them acted out as best you can (Add in effects with audacity) and if they are good enough I will put them in the game and credit the voice to you in the credits. There will be lots of characters that need them so if you feel up to it give it a shot and email the result mp3 file to me at RyanMitchellGames at gmail (with what you want your name to be in the credits IF it is selected). Pass the word on =)
So here goes an experiment =)… I use audacity for my audio. It is free and very powerful.
At 5:00 Zangblood spawns out of a bloody messy area on the map. A shrine of sorts. Zangblood was a human that has lost his mind due to the drug bliss. His speech is hard and labored… he is insane.
Zangblood: “I need more bodies… I need more.. of it… my precious liquid…. I need flesh… I sense you…weak soldiers of nothing…I used to be one of you…UNTIL I found true bliss… Now my masters have sent me here to gather more bodies for more Bliss… they WILL give me more BLIIIIIISSSSS!!!!… “
Helper: “This is not good. Zangblood has found us and he is insane as ever. His power levels have greatly increased. A little background information is in store. Zangblood was one of our best soldiers until he was addicted by the alien pushers to the drug Bliss. These addicted people are called Users… An alien race has taken control of its entire galaxy with the use of this drug. It is produced with the flesh of living organisms. They hope to take victims alive as the more agonizing the death is the better the resultant bliss produced. The exact methods of production are unkown. However…we do know that bliss gives extra-ordinary power, extacy, and a slow painful death as the user reverts to a fetal mess. Zangblood has somehow avoided this death and has grown amazing powers.”
Zangblood: “Confused are you… hehehehe.. my power has increased exponentially! I cannot DIE!!!! yet you CAN… and you wonder my secret… my secret of living in bliss!?!?!… It is you!.. I need living bodies to graft into my beautiful body… my body of many…we live together in bliss……chuckle… now you ALL will join us…”
Zangblood death: “NOOOOOOoooo!!! Impossible…..I had a contract……I was decieved…..SLOTH…. I . I……..(death exhale)..”
CLICK FOR BETTER IMAGE….as always =)
Man things are rolling!!!! First boss is in! It is amazing a character can be from concept to in game in about 3 hours. Good stuff!!
There Zangblood goes!! Good stuff!! Man alpha is close!!

Update: First Boss on go =)
Update : five minutes later the skeleton is done
Life has been a little rough the last few days a close friend lost her dad. So A little off kilter but still churning the list… =)
There is only one decent system left (fog of war)….the a bunch of polish as I do no want to waste alpha teams time… If this was my day job we would be on to another game by now =), however I have a lot of midnight oil left to burn =).. I will be getting -er- done tonight and the whole week really. The forecast looks good for overtime work and little day job/life interruptions.
The goals tonight are to finish up the menu flash. Get the spells or abilities point and click finished. Then get to polishing. I also still have to make the level 1 boss and the final cut scene for level one. Those however should not take to long… more later when I get back to Cursed Realms… Happy Monday! =)
