Hi, I Thought I would start a thread in case anyone is interested following my story, I intend to blog or diarise the journey so if you are interested now is the time to start following I have a blog at :- http://www.thehadroneffect.com If you follow the link there is an About page which explains the story but briefly...... This whole thing is the realisation of a life long ambition, well I say life long since I discovered PacMan I guess. I have for a long time now dreamt of creating my own FPS, I never thought that would happen because of skill and the time required, and it still might not lol ! However, I'm going to give it a good go. During the day I'm a business systems developer and I have been doing this for about 20 years now, but I really want to try and fulfil this ambition of mine. I'm doing this primarily for fun in my spare time but I'd really like to see how good a game I can create on my own using my own game play ideas coupled with assets created by other talented people. The coding side of things I have no fear of at all, but I'm definitely not a graphic designer so I'm going to concentrate on making the game fun, challenging and interesting by filling it with all my favourite features that good FPS's have, and if in the end others enjoy playing it then thats a bonus ! So the plot features you as a scientist working on the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) follow the link if you have never heard of it as the plot will make more sense if you do. So you are working on the LHC and you keep ramping up the energy until one day, Zap ! You can't really remember much but you awake in what seems like a candle lit cave. It's weird because it looks like someone's been here before and tried to hide away, but from who or from what? Where am I? Where is the lab? The door is barricaded, sunlight streams through but what's on the other side? Home I hope..........................well I guess you'll have to wait and see, but I think getting back home is going to be harder, and take longer than arriving did, and so the game begins. If you are interested I hope you enjoy the ride, I'll keep this thread up to date as often as I can along with the blog, the blog is linked to twitter also so you can keep tabs if you like. Thank you for reading.
