    RE Framework
    (ink ribbons not supplied)

    Who is this for
    This is for anyone who is looking to create the old school or remastered style of resident evil-like games.

    What does it contain

    It will contain many features that are standard in these types of games from camera controls and input all the way to player systems and AI. For a detailed list of what will be included in the Editor and the Gameplay example, scroll down to the Features section.

    Where will it be available

    • [Private Beta] Token/Invite Link
    • [Production] Asset Store

    When is it going to be live
    This project was started February 2020 and does not have a set release date however private Beta testing is scheduled for July/August 2020.

    Why create it
    Creating a game is a long and arduous endeavor. There is always a huge
    chunk of time planning out, testing and writing individual game systems. Luckily, working within the Unity engine we have access to editors allowing us to create tools and management systems for our applications. These tools take the painstaking process of specific manual work and compress them into intuitive and simple tools which greatly increase productivity. Having enjoyed the Resident Evil games since its release, I naturally wanted to relive my previous experiences by recreating the times I enjoyed so much. Shortly thereafter, I came to the realization that many people enjoy these style games so my focus switch to creating a game, to creating a framework for others to enjoy.

    How will it created

    The production map will follow as such:

    1. The editor will need to be fleshed out first. This includes the current list defined in the feature set for the editor below. Mechanical features will be added as the gameplay demo is constructed.
    2. Once the gameplay demo has been scripted, it will be refactored to be as modular as possible thus exposing all required parameters for use in the editor. This includes actors, camera, ai, items, etc.
    3. Next after the gameplay has been refactored for use in the editor, the editor will continue production and the final features and settings will be added in.
    4. Finally another demo will be created using fully the editor to ensure usability, bug testing and any missing features.

    This asset is in active development and as such is still in a fluid state. The good thing about this is that any community driven ideas and suggestions have a high probability of being appended to the framework if enough support is shown to those ideas.

    There will be a public form available for feature requests and polls taken on such features so the community can vet what features it would like to see.

    Note, as time progresses the feature list will be amended and any community driven features that have been accepted will be added with a TBD date.

    Once the base gameplay sample is done, anyone interested can test the gameplay while the editor is continued to be worked on.
