Occulo


Maker:
MetalDevil123

Engine:
FPSC with Fenix Mod (might get Horror mod to mutate the creatures, or if I don't get money soon and Z-Mod comes out soon then Z-Mod)

Official Website:
http://occulo.piczo.com/?cr=7

Storyline:
When military is attempting to do an army of super soldiers. This project called P.I.A.S.S (Project: Indestructible Army of Super Soldiers) extremely wrong. Test tubes full of the Subtance S (Superior) betas (untested and undone subbstance) break up, becouse of an explosion, that shacked almost the whole room. The explostion came from a machine next room. All these test tubes fall to the floor and break, filling the room and parts ofother rooms with toxic gas.

Army thought that all the people are dead and dumped them to the darkest depths of the earth, where no-one could find them. But the ydidn't know what was going to happen years from that moment, when they dumped teh bodies there.

5 years later goverment heard about this "bodie dumping" and on top of that, they said that radars have noticed some movement on the area. It looks like there is a lot of movement in there. Not just little mammals, like rabbits and such.

Year before that, army succeeded with the super soldier project, tough this soldier isn't indestructible yet. They say that they can take care of everything. They don't know what is the all of that, so they send the super soldier (you) and 8 other soldiers in one helicopter. Then there is other helicopter with 9 soldiers in it. Bot helicopters mysteriously crash to right before the landing. Like something threw something big on the copter. Superior get's seperated from the others and he needs to find a way out from the horrors of the hidden land they call: Occulo

That's some normal stuff. Nothing original in that story. But I might put in some twists.





I hope you like the screens!!!

Yeah, the story could use some work, but the screenshots are really awesome! Especially the first one; my first reaction: "Whoa". The third screen could use some rubbish or something in the ground. And yeah, you should really get Horror Mod for the character mutations, and the particle system is great! Only downside is that you can't spawn particles via trigger zones

Revelation leading to my psychosis and inspiration.

LoL! Yes it is. An awesome looking game too!

But, before I go to sleep, here is 2 more pics:




Oh, and here is 2 things, I wonder if you want to know:

Occulo means Hidden (occult or somn')
The inspiration to this game came from Jericho. But this is radically different, so I'm not trying to copy.

Looking nice, however I REALLY dislike the left hand rock face in the first screen. At first glance I thought the first screen was on a cliff and that the rock face was part of your skybox. The texture does not look right to me. Everything on it looks far away and the entity itself is far too smooth for that texture. Something just looks very wrong with it to me.

The new website for the game is up:

http://occulo.piczo.com/?cr=7

I tried to make it look as professional as possible. I was looking at some other game sites and took a little inspiration from there. But I just started, so there is nothing fancy yet. But remember to check it often!


Oh, the sweet massacre! Just wanted to show, how many enemies can be at one battle. Well, there isn't all the bodies and there is some bodies from another battle. A smaller one. AND! I forgot to change the dying script to leavecorpse, so some corpses didn't stay!

Ekipshi: That big version is not necessary, but could you make one, but it's like long from the sides and short from the top. Like this one but rotated 90 degrees and has the letters as it should have? If not, then that's ok, but I would really honor that

Okay, so I haven't updated this for a while, but UPDATE!

I am 50% done with the first and 60% done with the second level and I just started the 3rd. Why do I make this like this? Becouse !DEMO! will have shorter and not the final quality levels, Once I get this 2-3 level demo out, I will start working on these 3 levels more. Make them longer and more action and horror packed!

Also, have anybody noticed the updated story? I hope it's better now, than it was some time ago.

But here is some screens:

The tortureing area. You start the 3rd level here without weapons, cause these creatures took all your weapons.


The same place...


...again.


Okay! We finally got to another place! This is still the 3rd level, but not the torturing area anymore.


The same place, from a different view. You shouldn't fall here. The water will kill you if you fall here.


This is... Well... This is a very dark tower. Nothing to add.

I hope you all like the screens and please, post feedback! I need it!

Nothing! I know this is a triple post, but.... OK. Screens. This post has a meaning:


Some terrain!


Remade teh castle from the last screen on teh post before the post before this.


I decided to use this hand texture. Talking of wich... well not talking of that, but I wanted to say: Talking of wich. BUT! How do I use shaders on weapons? And characters. I tried to put teh shader on the effect slot, but it didn't work. And I had full shaders on.


Just another screen. Please comment! i really like feedback!

This looks very unique and intenresting. I like the outdoor greenish creepy look. Nice choice on the EAI hands in the screen just above. Keep up the nice work, I don't usually play horror games as they are very corny and annoying to me, but I'll still keep looking at this.

I had one question: How did you get the lighting to be so good and clear? Did Fenix do that?

Nice job.

Oh, I'm sorry for ignoring your game. The new screens look amazing, this just keeps getting better. Mind if I contribute a special texture to this project? This is a concrete texture which has been bump mapped with an environment map, so the original texture reflects in what looks to be a water puddle. Looks horror-ish. Anyone else can take it too.

Noo... I think. I just put one big light above teh map. Not in the middle of teh map ofcourse

That's nothing

Thanks! I will use that for outside levels!

OK, I found a great time to make media for you. Next week, I don't have to go to work as I'll be working from home. This weekend, however, is not as good a time due to many busy things occuring related to my neighbors.

I would use Fenix Mod, but although the lighting improved a lot and the same with graphics and load times, it messed up my Air-modded guns. Like when I sprinted, the animations sped up like hell, and when I shot while zoomed, nothing worked. Oh, well. I'll stick to Project Blue for now.

Keep up the good work, and I forgot to add that I love your Occulo signature.
