Guys! We need "Favorites" tab here on 80.lv
My motivation wasn't to knock Cem, not as a person nor as a developer. As I said, "this is cool, no doubt about that". I was sharing my personal opinion about the price-point for a material that is so expensive (performance-wise), and pointing out the fact that the same look can be achieved for cheaper (both performance and wallet-wise). I personally find it hard to budget 10s of dollars for a single material, a single effect, etc., but that's me. Other people have money pouring out of their ears and can afford to play like that. The internet is getting less friendly as far as opening dialogues like this. People should be able to have opinions and share them, debate them, without being told to hush up and move along. I hope others buy and use this asset- I'd be curious to see how it stacks up to alternatives out there (again, as I said "I love options"). As far as making my own assets and releasing articles here? It's in the works. And if somebody came along and started a dialogue about issues, opinions they had, or whatever- I would be happy to engage them!
A small team from Belfast is working on a new 2D action game with a focus on survival and exploration called Proceed. Set across a procedurally generated universe, it is a single player experience, which will give you a chance to play as an Artificial Intelligence, built as an aide for the survival and expansion of the human race.
In a period of rapid growth and dwindling natural resources, you will be the last hope for the future of Planet Earth. You’ll have to do something to advance the human race on Earth: manage resource usage and technological research, and explore across the Universe.
The thing here is that the worlds you explore are generated using libraries of hand-painted artwork the developers created beforehand and clever programming to bring them to life.
- An Infinite universe, just for you – filled with bizarre creatures & deadly opposing AI’s
- A deep focus on upgrades – start out frustratingly weak and slow. Upgrade your technology, weapons, engine, and lots more.
- Day / Night cycles and dynamic weather patters, many of which are deadly
- More ways to play. Form a exploration strategy with a variety of up-gradable droids. The balanced Mech with a booster pack. The heavy duty rover tank with massive firepower or the nimble drone. (More on this below)
