Sixth TGA project

Continued development from the engine we used in the Space Shooter. Uses DirectX, Wwise and Lua scripting.

Lunacy of War

Premise: Humanity has mutated through excessive use of ability enhancing drugs. Survival now requires the use of certain life giving stuctures which are constantly fought over.

Setting: Sci-fi.

Experiences

Don't wait until the last minute to implement AI.

 

Good graphics will look shit with bad lighting. Proper PBL is essential.

 

Starting development without a truly unified vision is recipe for disaster. Good communication is fundamental to any cooperative endeavour.
