In 2011 planet Earth fell into international nuclear war.

Use of FPSC's particle system.

The Trailer appears a little flat to me, but your screenshots are even more convincing on the other hand!

Good work, keep it up!

LOL, I like the "Out Door Scenery....complete with plants!" part. Anyway... down to buisness.

Screens look good! I like the fact it isnt all dark and can convey the atmoshpere with a brighter outdoor setting. Who needs dark corridors anyway?! Keep up the good work!

Amazing work! Plants really complete the athmospehere. This makes my outdoor scenes look lame which reminds me I should start a WIP thread of my project soon..

Ok, I am looking for a voice actor to do the soldier.

Specifications are as follows;
- Deep, clear but fast speaking voice. Any accent accepted, so long as it is understandable.
- High quality recordings. Noise inaudible.Rite my new number.

Speak to me if your interested. I'm on a tight budget though, with christmas coming up and all that.

That would be awesome. Can you send me a sample reading:

I must agree on that front I'm afraid. Although the game itself a real difference to all the darker games on display at the moment in the WIP/Showcase boards. Very well done.

P.S. I like the plants!

Yeah, try including some gameplay. Also, im not sure whether or not it is a good idea to just read out your storyline. It seems a little dull. Try to make the trailer reflect the game genre and gameplay style. E.g. Action game with fast gameplay: Short scenes with abrupt transitions showing in game conflict. Hope this helps!

I am always a little cautious about screenshots without huds&framerate.

I've read so often final post (after 5 pages s screenshot comments) along the line of "game won't build/game crashes upon build/the fps is under 10/the dog ate all the files" that I nowadays wait patiently for the demo

Looking good, although you need some more buildings in the background of the third screen. It doesn't look like there's a city beyond that first row of buildings.

I agree, that the trailer looks flat, but the screenshots are very good looking! The lighting seems great and it feels that there is world around the level boundaries, atleast from what I see in the screens. That may all change when I get to play it.

This looks pretty epic.
I like the atmosphere, reminds me, a small amout, like a few levels in my game. I like the plants, also.

Good job, and good luck - I'll be looking for a demo.

Sorry for double post. Bumping thread. Just wonder when we will see a demo of some sort. Curious to see how you made the town with such low lag and realism.

Sorry for the lack of updates... I am still working on this project, but rather slowly... At the moment I am optimising gameplay. Certain areas cause extreme lag, due to the large render. I am trying to reduce this as much as possible. The funny thing is, in other areas the game runs sweet as a nut

Ah well. Sorry for the double post, but I may aswell explain why I haven't been working on this game as much. I've decided to enter the 'Scariest Horror Game' contest. Although off-topic, here are some screens from my 'indev' level.

Update!!!
I have decided that, after fiddling MP53 for a while, that the game will no longer be a 'zombie shooter'. Hopefully this way I can kill the lag aswell...

Reading your first post, it appears to me that without being a "zombie shooter" there isn't much left of the game you announced nearly 3(!) months ago
