IMPORTANT NOTICE: The game is no longer for sale. Please see last page.

If for some reason the game isn't opening the updates page, go to www.indimasters.com/updates.html.



New Site: www.indimasters.com

My game just got accepted onto the major site (click the banner below to go to my page): moddb.com



Hello everyone!

Never thought I'd see this day. Today I am releasing to you a pre-release beta version of Time Front: Battle of the ages (v.99.0.0)!

Just as a summary, Time Front is an online shooter that combines many ages into one for an epic fight like no other. It has levels of command and technology and resource gathering. It's pretty much one of a kind in online shooters (it's somewhat similar to Savage).

I would really appreciate the support if you bought this game. I'm paying for monthly server usage and I have to start testing the game with large amounts of people.

Please note that there might not be a server up 24/7 at first. Things could be a little slow at first (player wise), and there might be some major bugs. But that's why I'm offering the discount, and I don't think these problems will last long.

I'm considering offering the extra incentive that, for whoever wants it, I will add their name to the credits as a beta tester if they buy the game before the final release.

One other feature of this game is that I am offering a clean playing experience.

To order and for more information, please visit: www.indimasters.com

Below are a couple of screenshots from the WIP thread. You can view everything about the game there, though note that things are changing because it's in development http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=171079&b=8

Brilliant job!
To be able to make games like that is the reason I got into programming in the first place, I wish you very much luck and success!
I hope one day I will be able to support your work by buying at release. (Althought I don't know yet, the internet in Northern Thailand is very slow )

Thanks a lot. That's understandable; I know what slow internet is like from past experience.

I'll try to put one up tonight.

Hmm...that is very odd. I'm sorry for the the trouble. I will be home in about 3 hours, and I'll log onto the server and check it out.

Oh, I actually just realized what it might be. Did you uninstall AND completely delete any folders remaining from the beta before? The uninstaller usually leaves some files behind. If so, that's the reason. When I get back, I'll explain what to do.

Key verification? It should be instant. The server might have been slow at the moment or something.

I want to! More people need to buy so we can get some games going. It may just take a few days until things pick up. I can't wait to see what sword fighting is like with tons of people.

Great that you got this finished! I don't know if you're interested or not, but I made a different logo for you (no offense, but I thought your current one looked a bit outdated)

Here, Don't worry about credit or anything if you use it

Just a question for your potential buyers: do you feel you need a demo before you want to buy?

I would just post gameplay videos\testimonials.
Which I would be glad to write a testimonial for it once I get a chance to test it out.

BTW when will you be on MSN?

Hmm, good idea. Thanks. I think I might be able to put together a demo too. It will be the training mode that's not included right now. I could then add it to the full version in a future update.

On MSN now.

Me too, rotfl.

Also i would wish to buy the game, but it's not on my pocket etc.

Still, i'd wish to see it free. You could give the ones who have paid for their versions member status. You know, more of cool features etc. Or atleast give a free month trial

Till then i advice you to get better animations, and add blood
People just don't like games today without blood and gore. Also slow down players, they seem to be super-fast to me, which comes irrealistic.

But after that, the game looks amazing . I hope you'll earn much on it.

Limit's of this sig are really low o_o 200 characters and i can have only 2 carriage-returns ..:..:..

Thanks, and thanks for the suggestions.

If you feel like the game is not "on your pocket" right now, stick around, as I am going to post something that should fix that (see post above). Hopefully that will be today.

That hope has been fulfilled.

First, I'm pleased to present the new website design (thanks to Blobby 101). Check it out! (you might need to refresh the page after it loads to clear the old website from the cache)

www.indimasters.com

Secondly, in order to start filling up the servers, I'm giving the opportunity for you all to get the game at only $5 a copy! I'm only going to do this for a certain number sales, so hurry while it's still there; this is not a permanent price.



Take advantage of this offer today, and let's get some battles going!

5 dollars eh? If that offer is still available next month I will definately buy and just hope my net is strong enough!
I hope you get many sales now!
How are you advertising? Just to us at tgc?
I think with advertising this game could become the next big thing!

I am sorry but too be fair, 5$ is basicly what i would pay for this kind of game.
30$.. thats quiet a lot for this kind of quality, especially considering i can get most high quality indie games for 40 approx.
I am sorry, i just feel the pricing is way off for what its worth imo. especially considering the amount of players..

I'm using Google Adwords and other means to get the word out. Thanks for your support. I can't promise it will be available next month, though, because after a certain number of sales I am putting the price back.

Thank you for your input. I'm always trying to improve the game to get it to the quality people expect today. If you have any suggestions on how to improve the game, please email them to me at info (at) indimasters (dot) com and I will check them out.

5$ is too less for this kind of game, until there will be people on the server, it should be ( i didn't play it but im shooting there ) 15$.

It should open a web page when you try to refresh the server list.

If for some reason it didn't, go to www.indimasters.com/updates.html.

ah,I get an error running the new version, It says "Failed to Open ZIP" and then "File block is invalid or does not exist"

edit: I got past that by uninstalling, completely deleting what was left and then reinstalling, but now whenever I enter my product key it crashes with "Could not find path at line 99"
