It features, dialogues, items, pixel shading, day and night cycle, a rather limited story (as it is just a test map after all), several units, original soundtrack, dozens of sound effects and other interesting things.
Do keep in mind that this is an effort by 2.5 (me being the .5) people, brothers and quite young actually 21 and 23 years old and not a full team, or professionals.
All feedback is most welcome, here, or in the site, in form of comments and...well... do spread the word.
If by any chance, anyone is interested in the music PM me
Hehe... no I didn't think you sounded negative at all. No problem.
I'm always open to feedback good or bad, (unless I mention so, which I have once in a different forum in the past, for various reasons...).
The thing with sfx is that it takes sound programing as well. In order to make music you need Cubase, or notation software, some sounds and so on.
In order for sfx to work correctly you need the programer to deal with, panning issues (a bird can't always be on your right), depth issues (more or less reverb), crossfading, volume controls and so on, and randomize them. Timing issues also come into play as footsteps (not in this game), or clashes of swords and other things need perfect timing...
Sadly I lack the experience to make better sfx, or guide someone through the above... But I'm not trying to avoid any responsibility for the sfx, I made them, and it's my fault they're not exactly right. (plus I find it kinda boring).
Making sfx, is kinda difficult, and it does take an initial capital, a decent mic, some portable device to capture everything and time (scary that last one...)
Hi Nikolas - sounds like your small team lucked out on the composer! This sounds like a type of dark wit that the english do, that you wouldnt hear in the US. I know there's Tim Winton/Elfman type stuff, and I've read that youre in London, but still strikes me as 'English', which is a fresh thing in this largely US industry. (Not being anti-US here, just pro-cultural diversity, albeit in a 1930's kind of way,lol.) Just an impression anyway.
Nice to put a sound to the name too!
For the record:
I'm Greek, living in London.
Noren brothers are Sweedish living in Gutenberg.
Nothing to do with the US! hihihi
Other than that, as I said, thanks. I'm not sure that my sound is british anymore than "European" maybe... But still.
