Game - The Grid Video footage

by Darthon12 » Post

25 years ago central power rose as the most powerful corporation in history. How they rose to power is a mystery that must be solved. Also 3 music tracks from the soundtrack.

The Grid, a pixelated new wave science fiction game in early stages...A dystopian futuristic adventure game with a blaster and Zombies.

Now this is interesting. Reminds me of the game Ion Fury, Duke Nukem and cyberpunk stuff like Deus Ex.

I saw the WIP flying car background animation too, looked great.

Looking forward to trying it out.

This is awesome, did you do all the pixel art by yourself ?

From the trailer it looks like a cyberpunk linear RPG game, nice

The Grid is definitely in the cyberpunk genre, its a shout out to all the classics from the 1982 Blade-runner movie to 90s FPS'(Duke, King Pin, Quake 1/2). I think of it, and the soundtrack as a re-imagining of cyberpunk classics. One rule I had when making the textures was indexing them all with the "best" 90s FPS color palette(and I tried several, quake 1 was too brown/green etc...). Duke Nukem 3D color Palette then back to RGB for blue-ing, ie color temp or a blue layer set to "burn" (Duke 3D palette can be found here and imported into GIMP - http://wiki.eduke32.com/wiki/File:Pala.png). Not only does using the same palette / blue-ing make all the textures match, it creates a very nice pixel affect by limiting color space.

Hopefully I have all the issues with the traffic sorted out soon, work is going fairly good now that I am using entities verse nodes...

Hail to the king, babe!

Is it going to be up on git or somewhere?
If you're going to work with entities a lot, I might have the thing just for that purpose.

Really good stuff, I agree. Track 40 is excellent. Seems this game will be a very comprehensive experience.

Nice! BTW what is this hologram-like thing (with captions and surrounded by halo) from screenshots 13 and 14? In 13.png it's big.

Its just a hologram "map" used for aesthetic, you can see them in the in game video around 2:19. I did add the PNG animation to the google drive. They may change as the game furthers in development.

Looking at that animation PNG it makes sense now, it's a globe. In the game though it seems that right half of the globe is symmetrically reflected, so it wasn't so obvious for me (I thought a brain maybe).

Unfortunately when using drawtype = "plantlike" renders a "X"(when looking from top down), some animations work better than others, like in pic 17.png the lighting is also "plantlike".

The lab is subterranean, the video only shows a small portion of the level. Below is the lab from the outside...

Is this still a game for Minetest? If yes, that would be really cool!

As of right now this game is about 40% completed in Minetest, I have been dumping large amounts of time into learning Unreal Engine - for obvious reasons. I have been "copying" the building and textures over, using a 1x1x1 block in Unreal. I do plan on finishing both, at this time.
