Hi there, it took me YEARS ...
Once upon a time I bought a joystick and searched for an arcade style game, something like that afterburner game I used to spend coins in back in my youth.
I could not find it, so I focused on creating it.
Of course it can be played with the mouse/keyboard but you will take more fun with a force feedback joystick.
Darkbasic is a very open sandbox where the imagination can be free and the hard side is to contain ourself to what can be done in an affordable amount of time.
Shooter 1.0 is not the game of the year, not a blockbuster made by a team of 400 people, not the new zelda...
It's been made by an individual alone in his chair in front of his PC screen.
Working alone on such a project requires a lot of passion as so mmany people kept telling me "find a real job" or why don't you add this or that to the game...
I have kept the project in DBC and did not move to DB Pro as I wanted to master DBC before moving to the next level.
I hope I will be able to afford spending time on the DB Pro features that wasn't there, simple things like alpha channel, or to enhance my future graphics projects with normal maps...
Shooter 1.0 can be downloaded on my website:
If you can share on Facebook it would help a lot
Shooter 1.0 is free and I would like it a lot if a maximum of people could play.
I will manage to give the info in video games magazines in France, but for the other countries it would be very helpful if you could send me the e-mails of journalist that you can find somewhere in those magazines so that I can contact them.
Have fun playing shooter
