Ostatnio moją uwagę zwróciła…

Ostatnio moją uwagę zwróciła będąca w produkcji gra End State, która zapowiada się… fenomenalnie. Ma to być turowa gra taktyczna i swoimi rozwiązaniami sprawia wrażenie, że wreszcie może być coś dobrego na miarę Jagged Alliance 2, Silent Storm 2, czy starych X-Comów.

Będziemy wybierać najemników, walczyć z wrogami mapach w „otwartym” świecie, ale mapa nie będzie podzielona na sektory. Mimo tego będą po niej np. poruszały się wrogie patrole, generalnie mapa będzie w czasie rzeczywistym (słowa dewelopera: „You are right, there won’t be sectors. There is movement along the roads to mission locations and encounters might happen on the way. It is real-time with pause kind of thing (PS. my favorite old school X-Com is Apocalypse” https://rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/end-state-turn-based-tactics-by-finnish-lunatic.101444/page-6#post-5685820). Gra ma znaleźć się niedługo w Early Access, jest już w produkcji trochę czasu, zatem cieszę się, że dopiero teraz o niej przeczytałem i nie musiałem czekać szmat czasu na konkrety 😛

Mamy mieć możliwość kreacji swojej postaci, choć nie ma tego jeszcze w grze. Kilka dodatkowych informacji:

The tile system in End State is based on 1m1m1m tiles (basically voxels, though we don’t render them that way).
The large building in the above pictures technically has nine floors that each are 1 meter high.
Most buildings are made from 1 meter wide architectural pieces (positioned between tiles), for example 10 meter wall often is 10 separate pieces.
All architectural and other objects are destructable, only exception is the ground.
There is a structure integrity system, which calculates whether architectural pieces have enough support, if not they will collapse.
There are breaching charges and other explosives that you can use to take advantage of these systems.
There is a bullet penetration system, where each level object has a resistance value that is used to calculate if and how well each projectile will penetrate. High-powered rifle rounds often penetrate through multiple walls.
There is a fog-of-war system that illuminates all tiles seen by unit each time it moves or turns, this means calculating through a lot of tiles. It is a multithreaded operation and pretty fast.

Jeszcze kilka gifów na koniec ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Jak pojawi się w EA i będzie pozytywny odzew, to chyba sobie kupię, byłaby to moja pierwsza gra w EA ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Wygląda zacnie ( ͡º ͜ʖ͡º)
