Wow, that's great. Have to try this out!
Wow beautiful environment. Very thorough and detailed. But I think there are a few images that are not showing up (error?). Is that just me? Interested in seeing those other pictures...
Jack. First of all, I want to apologize for offending you. We published this just to show how the tech could be used. We don't actually care about the message. But you do bring up a viable point, that for some people - this might be an issue, so I take this post down.
Yesterday the creators of This War of Mine released a new patch (Update 1.3) that lets gamers become a part of the game development process.
The new update has a number of cool innovations:
- Scenario Editor. This tool allows gamers to write their own war stories and tell them trhough game. There are a lot of options. You can pick up members of the group, length of the conflict and even customize the weather conditions. A great tool to try out your scripts, if you had any.
- Character Editor. This little program gives players the possibility to shape their own characters. You can pick up any civilian and edit his/her look, skills, biographies. All those characters will be playable in game. There’a even a new option to add your own photo to the database to give your characters more personality.
Developers also added a couple of new locations (Old Town, Looted Gas Station) and a couple of new musical tracks. You can implement all that content into your personal scenario.
This is a great way to stimulate the creation of user-generated content and to prolong the life of the game.
This War of Mine is probably one of the biggest and most loved indie games of the last couple of years. This is a great project that brings up a lot of very unpleasant questions about humanity. It also shows the power of independent game development.
