BIONITE: Origins™ is a futuristic first-person shooter & real-time strategy hybrid. The core gameplay consists of piloting hovertanks in first-person, destroying other tanks or structures, commanding your squad to attack/defend certain targets, and a full strategy mode with base-building in the Strat game-mode.

Ok, so I know this will be archived by the admins on the site and it won't see the front page so straight tot he point and no fluff.

We haven't posted a lot here for the simple reason that we haven't been able to break any major barriers in the past month. The UDK engine doesn't have the AI system we need so we had to rebuild that from what they had. That has taken A LOT of time on our main programmers part. Also, as we are trying to get the basics for things like menus refined and little things like bugs that make things crash to go away. When this is done our goal is to have a nearly completed 1st level with a good part of the interface that made the original BZ game so great along with the unique game play that we all know and love.

Until then, as is the case with most indie games, things progress slowly and we don't have big news updates for you that often.

Hi guys,
I just now discovered your project. THIS IS AWESOME!!! I can't seem to find any way to download the game. Tell me it has not been cancelled! I sure hope not. BZ and BZ2 were the best multiplayer games EVER. I used to play under the names Trinity and Callisto. Perhaps you remember me? I remember playing with the BAC, LOC, and HEL clans quite a bit, but never joined a clan myself. Those were the days... I'm also a game developer myself nowadays (got an AAS degree in it) Drop me a line if you see this and let me know what's up. Thanks.

I too just discovered this! I played BZ like crazy (and most likely one of the reasons of my collegiate downfall when released) and it still one of my most loved games.
I too recall playing with HEL, LOC and all. I was with DVX.
ÐVX_Leviathan WOULD LOVE to have a great successor to BZ!

Hmmm, Voices could do with a lot of work, If you could add some Radio Discipline to the you corp forces, like "Copy HQ" "Roger" "Over" ETC, And more Lax communications for the rebels, To show the training difference.

If the Game crashs the first time you load it, after it has been installed, be sure to install the .NET framework or update your version to the most recent: Microsoft.com

SUPER THANKS to everyone that has downloaded BIONITE. Were currently working on the next revision (rev 6) which will be up in the next week. Were also working on the next full release of BIONITE. The next release will include the RTS elements and a 'fabrication' menu system for pilots to build custom vehicles. Panda and the production crew are working out the details, Hotshot is making some *** kicking new maps of Mars and the Moon, and I am working on the code. We will keep everyone updated as to our progress and let you guys know when Rev 6 will be available on Desura. PLEASE DONT FORGET TO VOTE FOR BIONITE ON STEAM GREENLITE. Were almost at 80% of the votes necessary to get greenlit and we need you to help us get to 100%.

You May be right but, give the guys an even break. There has been a lot of improvements made. However, I'm still concerned about the vehicle physics. Things still seem to be a little rough with that.

The biggest goal of the video was and still is to showcase actual game footage. second to that was a brief look at back story.The VO was last on the list and we know it needs serious work, we need to move on to making more content for the game as this took time away from that. We will be releasing another at some point in the future and the VO wil be much improved.

I had only a very very short time to do the Trailer. The VO was the only loose end we couldnt secure before I had to drop it. Since were NOT a full funded Dev Company just yet, we kinda have to go with what we got. Honestly, the VO was the lowest priority element on my list. ~LtF
