PREMISE

The year is 2714. Earth is a forgotten wasteland, but humanity has wandered galaxies with the help of Project Infinity. However, Ermacham Corporation is at war with the Vox Alliance and the remnants of the Earth Protection Agency. As Brandon North, you've destroyed Project Infinity and the Primitive Key, which makes you a direct threat to Ermacham's next plan. You're kidnapped and forced on a mission that will save humanity and every other peaceful civilization. You're assisted by ruthless soldier, M/SGT. Corbine and you're haunted by the visions of your past that are the only way you can remember who you truly are.



Story

In the 2060s, a wealthy industrialist and aerospace engineer named Paul Ermacham had founded a company named after him. He was a fanatic of the Shockspace theory -- the belief that beyond the red shift of the universe was a rift that lead to other universe or parallel timelines that overlapped into a cycle. By then, Ermacham Corps exploited governments around the world to invest in space travelling, causing great economic and resourceful tragedies across Earth. As an aftermath, resources were taken from other worlds which resulted in a failure, leaving humanity to inhabit other planets in need.
Centuries passed, other civilizations were found and the galaxy was somehow at peace. A device known as Project Infinity was built to warp objects or people through shockspace to other universes. Materials and documents were brought back to the humans for study, until one specific artifact was found in the depths of shockspace. This was known as the Primitive Key, its origins were found unknown and studies were proven useless. That was until one day, a rocket scientist named Brandon North had destroyed the artifact -- which fired back at him with an imprinted on its origins. North was then contained by Ermacham Corps for study, but escaped only to become a wanted fugitive.



Gameplay

You're welcome to explore the vast worlds modelled by Hydro-Boy and unravel lore hidden with the game as you progress within the story. There will be enemies waiting to swarm you from every corner. Keep in Mind: As Brandon North, you're inexperienced to fight which will bring you to use your brain and even your own tools.

However, you're not alone in your battles. With the aid of M/SGT. Corbine, co-op is an option as teamwork is the greatest of all.

Characters

* Brandon E. North - "The Outsider" - A 23 year old talented aerospace engineer and former scientist of Ermacham Corps. Grew up as an introverted child through his youth while growing up in the Cydonia region of Mars, but was an arrogant and risky kid in college who had a drug addiction with space drugs like morcus gum, some thought of him as a daredevil. The worst of his foolishness came when he thought it would be a good idea to work for a notorious corporation known for being responsible for several massacres across the galaxy and Earth being a barren wasteland. After escaping from months of psychological torment of his brain harvested, North became a wanted fugitive across the galaxy and a myth known as the Outsider. Remembering only bits of his past along with his girlfriend, North is determined to find her throughout the game before the blueprint burns his memories and erases his past completely from him. Brandon North is a young eccentric man with wild short-hair and glasses, having a funny personality and suffers a gradual case of brain damage. It is dumbfounding of how North is talented at building warships at an even faster pace above most engineer's standards, considering he had scored very low on the IQ and engineering exams back in college.

* Jeffrey O. Corbine - "The Point Man" - A 41 year old former space marine of the Earth Protection Agency's 451st battalion. After watching his own family murdered in front of him, Corbine promised to kill every Ermacham official that ever existed. Corbine had a wife named Zoey and two sons, Damion and Larry who were massacred at a shootout, causing his burning hatred toward the corporation. Jeffrey struggled in school as a juvenile delinquent and has nearly murdered twenty students at a young age, training himself to be one of the "greatest soldiers to ever live." He is heavily trained in martial arts and has a degree in biology from tuition assistance, supporting his research in hostile creatures from other planets. After the devastating end of the EPA, Corbine became a wanted mercenary and galactic bounty hunter only to later reunite with the 451st battalion as they plot to stop Project Infinity from being rebuilt. Despite having numerous differences with Brandon North, Corbine seems to enjoy working with him and makes a great partner as they fight against the Ermacham Forces, the Zygon Empire, and the Senex Lords.

* Abbey J. Helligan - The girlfriend of Brandon North and a scientist from EPA Board of Order. Abbey's past revolves from her dysfunctional family. Studying astrophysics at the University of Neptune where she had met Brandon E. North, the two fell in a deep relationship but seperated as Brandon began to work for the evil corporation, Ermacham. After Brandon was deemed a prime component to rebuilding Project Infinity, Abbey had brought Brandon back to the hands of the EPA where he was seen to be a hope of saving the universe from Project Infinity. Abbey tries to help the crazed amnesiac remember figments of his past and know who he truly is.

It can't be done from this site. All you got to do is Google engine nam, except "Costume Engine" can't be found.

Hey, I just updated Blender 2.69 to Blender 2.70 and noticed that the "Singletexture" shading setting found at the camera tab to the right is gone. Is that feature moved? I have a .blend file made in 2.69 which had "singletexture" enabled instead of "multitexture" but when I opened it after updating it was changed to "multitexture" and there was no "singletexture" button there anymore. I solved this temporarily by downgrading to 2.69 but I really want to use 2.70 without having to change so much stuff in my game project. I would really appreciate if anyone could help me with this, maybe it's just a bug but who knows?

The Singletexture mode has been removed in favor of just Multitexture and GLSL, yes. If you want to keep up on development, the blenderartists forums are the best way to do so.

What do you mean? Game engines usually provide and handle features that you would have to make yourself. For example, the Blender Game Engine handles displaying objects, physics, and scene loading and unloading itself, so you don't have to worry about it.

Games don't require engines to work, though. You could make a game without a pre-made engine (just some frameworks for drawing things and taking input, for example).

So to answer your question, no, games don't require engines to work. However, most games are powered by game engines - you've seen the "Powered by Unreal" screen when you start up some games, right? The Unreal Engine is a game engine - it 'enables' the game. Also, engines don't have to be 3D - Game Maker and StencylWorks can also be considered game engines.

meh??? engines are not required to make games??? I've always thought engines are what games are made with... If there's no engine, how are the physics, lighting, etc. emulated?? I'm confused =S

The game engine takes out a lot of the hefty lifting basically

What I meant was that you could make a game without a pre-made engine to handle the physics, lighting, drawing, input, and sound. Commercial engines are generally easier to use than writing a game 'from scratch'.

If you were to use a framework, like SDL or OpenGL and Bullet, then you wouldn't have to worry about low-level code (handling audio or manually dealing with 3D or physics). Frameworks don't usually have all of the features of a full game engine, but rather have only some of them, and usually require at least some coding to work with. There are also frameworks that, while requiring coding to work with, have many or even all of the features necessary to make games, like PyGame or FlashPunk, but aren't fully featured game engines like Unity or the BGE.

Engines (other than custom-written ones), on the other hand, are usually pre-made to run out of the box. Examples are UDK, Unity, RPG Maker, Game Maker, and the Blender Game Engine.

Yes you can make a game without a premade game engine, but having one would make the job easier, but if you don't you would have to write all code for the game yourself

aaaahhhhh, I didn't know that when using the word 'engine' it refers to a pre-made kind of software, hmmm... interesting, you seem to know a lot! (and thanks btw)

I don't really know much of anything, honestly. I just meant pre-made engines; you could write your own game engine if you wanted.

And no problem.

heheh, I find all of this so cool but my computer right now is so crappy it lags when playing youtube vids so I may try out the BGE when I get my new computer maybe this summer ;P

I have used before many engines, such as Dark Basic, game maker, rpg maker, Blitz3D and Panda3D. The Blender game engine has an excellent workflow(inside the 3d program), has a easy, acceptable fast(not fast as C++ thought) and largely supported programming language(python); is free; packed with features; is still actively maintained(more by the community than blender.org devs thought); has many kind users and exports the game to Windows, Linux and Mac, and maybe in the future Android. I constantly…
