Lifecycle[b][u][center]

Dear members of the GameGuru community,

first, I´d like to introduce myself: My name is David (well, that´s my nickname) and I am new to this forum. After having played some of the GameGuru-titles on Steam (Father´s Island, Hunted: One Step Too Far - really, really great stuff!!!), I have tried to build my own little game.

It is a short "Walking Simulator" (approx. 15 min) with a philosophical narrative. As a space traveller you will get to know the lifecycle of a planet. Just walk around, find the keycard, and enter the next location...
As to the story: It is good not to know too much about it - in order to enjoy the experience

Here are some screenshots:







Maybe you want to give it a try and leave a comment here or on my GameJolt-Page. That would be awesome!!!

Best wishes to all game enthusiasts and developers out there!
David

Tried it and completed it .... Pretty interesting and good atmosphere ..
What did you use for the commentary voice ?
The only person ever to get all his work done by "Friday" was Robinson Crusoe..

Thank you very much for your kind feedback

I tried a few text-to-speech-programmes in order to find a voice which is reminiscent of Hal 9000 - so that there is still a human voice, but at the same time also a slightly uncanny mood...

I thought Zabaware TTS Reader to be the best choice...

Thank you very much for playing !!! Yes - the focus was clearly on creating the atmosphere and telling a short story about life and space...

Make use or normal maps and specular maps etc. And it will look way better. Also lights and light mapping. Good start.

Hey - really glad you liked it I´ve got some ideas for a new project - but I still have to find the time for it, because it will require a bit of programming work...
