So, this is an FPS inspired by early 90's classics like DOOM, Quake and Duke Nukem 3D. Like those games, it's fast and full of action but it also encourages a good amount of exploration with secrets and backtracking, something I think is missing on most games of the genre nowadays.
I'm using Unreal Engine 4 with 2D sprites like DOOM, but a 3D world like in Quake. The reason is that I want a more retro look but I want to be able to have a full 3D environment and explore more verticality.
The game takes place in a small generic caribean island that was invaded by fishmen pirates and are now in control. You are the "Pescador", the hero of the resistence, a strong and shirtless fisherman with a misterious past and a hook for his right hand. I'm still working out the details but he can also go back in time because of reasons. Don't expect something serious out of this.
- A hookshot that can be used for movement, but also to fight enemies and solve puzzles.
- A save system inspired by the ones in Ori & The Blind Forest and They Bleed Pixels. You can save anywhere you want but it costs you armor, so you have to decide if you want to save or to keep your protection. But unlike other games, you can get armor from the enemies you kill.
Here, have some gifs:
Gonna try to keep this updated.
