Remaking Norse Wars as Stand-alone Game?
« on: October 03, 2014, 09:08:10 PM »
Any interest for the project? Haven't quite seen a game like Norse Wars since AOM/AOE3 died, and it seems like if DoTA can lead to a stand-alone game (DoTA2, LoL), it's not that far a stretch to see Norse Wars becoming one as well (if we can get a team around it).

I've been out of the game development scene too long though and don't know where all the modders/designers have gone (or if that's still a big thing in the newer games, which seem largely locked down from an editing standpoint).  Just putting this out there to see if maybe some of us have gone into game development professionally or know of anyone that might be interested in getting this together.

I'm a programmer now, not related to game dev but I would be more than willing to help

Thanks Ra.  I'm asking around a lot to figure out what kind of help I can get at the moment.

Does anyone happen to have gameplay footage of NW by any chance? It would help get more developers interested as it's hard to demo the game now that ESO is dead (and since the AI doesn't really play).

Added a basic video against AI for now:

If anyone wants to play and record a real game, let me know.

I'm somewhat familiar with scripting/programming, though nothing near game developing  :-\

I'd be happy to help out. I've done a lot of programming and touched on game dev before :)

Awesome. Glad to hear.



Ra and I are currently looking for existing RTS packages on Unity so we

don't have to start from scratch. At the moment just trying to get a basic

functioning prototype together. Also if you have AOMT on Steam, we're also

trying to record a game with a handful of players at some point so we can

show what the game is like to newcomers.

Some resources I'm looking at so far:
- Free AI engine: http://rivaltheory.com/rain/
- Some free RTS assets: http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/100-free-fantasy-rts-assets.65211/

I figure if we can get a skeleton for the game going, we can always replace the models later with higher quality stuff.
