    Hello Everyone.
    We are students of the Digital Games development, and we are planning to launch our first game together for IOS. One of us already made a game, and will release soon. But this one, its the first made by our group.

    In this game, you control a Helicopter how works for a TV news.
    Everytime in the game, you will receive a "radio call" telling you about a incident.
    Then you should fly to there, and film the incident. This can be a crash car, i robbery, a prison escape, zombie attack, etc...
    At any incident, you will have some key point, which will earn you some money, if you zoom in this key point.
    You will need money to fill the gas tank, and repair the helicopter. We are thinking about a new model of helicopter, or replacement pieces, like a new camera, or a new rotor.

    Current Features
    - Helicopter Control
    - Camera Control
    - Fuel Control
    - Funds Control

    Pending Features
    - A original City (This one is a replacement )
    - The incidents
    - Some models and props
    - Some "life" for the city
    - *new replacement pieces for the helicopter / new helicopters, etc...



    Heres a mix of the actual gameplay and some gui concept.




    We would like to have some advice from people with more experience with unity. Maybe some advice for build the City, and such things!

    What am I commenting on? The screens?

    They look nice,..bit empty,.but I am sure you are working on populating it with AI and stuff.


    You don't say much about the game at all,....can you give us a run down of the gameplay and it's features?

    I take it you are a news reporter, how do you complete missions? Is it like taking snapshots or video?

    this look very interesting.
    the pictures makes me wanna play it. but not knowing how the game flows kind of kills the mood a little.
    still this looks very nice.

    @jasielmacedo our plan is to release for iPhone/Pod/Pad
    The camera, will have 3 levels of zoom, where you can focus on key points at incident. We are thinking about let the camera free to move. But to this, we will need to have another stick on the screen. :p

    eh,.you dont need another stick controller for the camera,...

    maybe the player can simply touch the current screen and wherever he/she touches, that is where the Close Up window shows.

    /cheers

    @Welby, if we think about iPad, this could be a good way to do control the camera. But if think about iphone, i think we dont have enough space to do this.
    we havent tested this at iphone, but i still think that the helicopter control, and the zoom camera are enough... :p

    But thx for the tip!
