To be honest? What was Star Wars? George Lucas!!! It was cool back then in the 70 ties! Nothing ever before was like it..and it had character! 2 little shiny robots that behaved like humans! The n th sequal of something that was major in the past...! My advice? Start something new dont copy Star Wars...and give it some heart again! Put the industry to shame!!!😉 my 2 cents..
Well that's a lot of hats !
So why not finish the project but making it super generic? Strip all star wars terms out. Then when the game is finished, allow for modders to make a conversion mod that will reinsert the star wars material? That way he can finish it and we all can get what we want and no one has to give up on their dreams.
The development team behind ‘Sir You Are Being Hunted’ is working on a new first person shooter with deep exploration elements.
The Signal From Tölva is an open-world first-person shooter set on a distant, haunted, future world. You are required to unlock savage weapons and recruit robots, fight rival factions. Your main goal is to find the source of a mysterious signal.
The game is developed by Jim Rossignol and his team (5 people in total). Jim is a game journalist, who contributed a lot for Rock, Paper, Shotgun. However, he also wanted to build games (and not just criticize them). This is how Big Robot was born. Their first game Sir You Are Being Hunted was released in May 2014. It was well-received and praised by crowd-funding backers.
The Signal From Tölva has a lot of the same kind of vibe, but it is a completely different game. It feels a bit like a sci-fi version of STALKER. You go out exploring some strange ruins, hunt down enemies and just wander about enjoying this strange journey.
The game has just been released, and there are some tiny issues with performance, but the developers are working on another patch, which will hopefully help to solve all those issues. Looks very interesting!
