[SC2] Resident Overmind

on Fri 23 Apr 2010, 22:41
After I've had the chance to tinker with the (rather complex) Galaxy Editor I came up with a first idea of the general direction my first map project is headed to.

Let me present to you:

Resident Overmind



Open in Youtube for full size.


The story:
Your team was on a recon patrol in the forests of Bel'Shir as suddenly the vehicle was hit by something.

The munitions store exploded and the entire crew is dead.

Except of you..

It's probably going to be a two-player survival map. Though I aim at a much smaller scale than DotD was.
Think of Resident Evil as an example.

Aye, Owned Razz Well that looks GREAT S3R But if it's going to be a 2 player survival Then either A.) The story needs to be changed so that it's You and your buddy who survived. Or B.) have the second player spawn elsewhere on the map and that way when the two of you meet up it's a "Chance Meeting" and the two of you set off to do whatever it is you have in store for them Wink...But mostly Dying I'm guessing.

Some Death & Destruction incoming for our protagonists!
Well, both the story and the game concept came to me like a flash and are correspondingly weak Razz

I'm working hard on making the Marine fire when Spacebar is hit, but so far I've encountered some problems.

Nice you finally didn't get owned Razz...But you still took damage Very Happy

I also really like how they have the inventory management now. Or did you have to create that yourself?

What you saw there is Blizzards own inventory system. I had to set it up (place the buttons, etc) but all in all it's supplied by them.

However, I aim to make a game where the mouse will not be used, thus the inventory wasn't exacltly what I needed.
Therefor I came, I saw, I made my own:


The options-dialog, right of the inventory is the context menu, just like in Resident Evil Smile

Making good progress, already loving the editor.

With Saths help I've modified the game's lighting environment a little, but I'm not entirely happy with it yet.


Also the player is able to interact with many objects in-game now.

Do you mean the unit command panel, etc?
Nope I won't. Resident Overmind is designed to be played only with keyboard, so there's no need for all that stuff^^

I want to create the feeling of insecurity, so you're not able to see exactly how much health you have, how much damage you or the enemy deals, etc etc.

Uhm yea - creepy, isn't it?^^
I was playing around with different models and that was a left-over from testing.

Looks Excellent. Btw what do I have to do to play? I have Beta DLed from a friends account.. But I have a feeling i'm going to have to end up going through the lazy launcher and everything correct?

Oh yea - how to play:

At the moment there's only two ways: First is to use lazy launcher
Second is to open the map in the Galaxy Editor and click Test Map.

Blizzard will implement custom map play somewhen later.
