Hello, everyone!

Going to show you an open source RTS game I'm lonely developing on Python and Panda3D game engine.



Forward Only is a route-strategy, in which you have to find an optimal way through the world: your time is limited by spreading poisonous clouds of the Stench - visit as many places of interest as you can to find a way to survive the cataclysm.

On your way you'll have to recruit people, upgrade the locomotive (active weapons included), make tough choices, search for resources, overcome diseases and fight with enemies of different classes. To survive all adversities you should also increase your crew cohesion - to make people stronger together.

See an alpha-footage for better idea:



The game is now about 80% finished, and I'm looking forward to the first beta. However you can already play an alpha build in the repository (and examine the source code as well):
https://github.com/IlyaFaer/ForwardOnlyGame

No matter you're interested in the game or its source code, you're welcome to follow the project (consider also the game IndieDB profile - https://www.indiedb.com/games/forward-only).

So, what are your thoughts? Does it all sound like a worth project?

It's very cool, but needs some optimisation or, at least, graphics settings. Message me when you do it.

@sheudler, thank you very much!
Yeah, there are several performance issues and a plan to deal with them :ok_hand:

Hi, all, folks, how is it going!

The very first Forward Only beta is released! To this event the first game trailer was posted:




There is still a lo-ong list of things to do, and beta is just a mark that says "technical base is complete". Now it's about visuals, effects, content and performance. Speaking of which, in beta an ability to limit FPS was added - it'll help those, who experience 90% device load from the game.

The last playable build as well as the source code can be found in the game repository:
https://github.com/IlyaFaer/ForwardOnlyGame/releases

Also you should know that a Discord server was created for the game:

You're welcome to play, comment and, of course, join!

Hi, all, how is it going

A New Year release happened in Forward Only! Prepare your garlands and flappers:




A lot of things were done in the game since the last message: new landscape blocks added, performance boosted, visuals improved, GUI became more friendly. All the places of interest and outings were translated to Russian language - only Captain's Journal left written in English.

The last playable build can be found in the game repository:

Thanks! Visuals are a bit hard on this Panda3D engine, even with that simple geometries I have a lot of performance issues (not even mentioning such common things like volumetric lighting and ambient occlusion). Not sure I can do a lot here, but, yeah, I hear you.

Hi, all!

Romantic atmosphere fills Silewer these days:




The game scenario is finally finished, all the main mechanics implemented, and I'm now working hard on balance. The game world was compressed - it became smaller, but more replete, enemies became more aggressive and they evolve much faster.

As all the systems and the game ending are implemented, it can be said that we have a raw, but full version of the game. Polishing stage!

Hi, all! How are you?

Big news in Forward Only! Three music artists: Moloken, Among Madness and Qualia, supported the game with their tracks, making atmosphere way more dense! Check the full game playlist on Spotify:
https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2DiGeOVQfOirdGzTTwPmlC

New visual effects and sounds were added, the world was compressed at 15%, and a lot of errors were fixed.

Hello, everyone!



New beta-build of the Forward Only game brings you a new challenge: episode-crossover with SCP Foundation!

Watch the trailer:





The game performance was improved, and some bugs fixed.

Playable build can be found in the game repo: https://github.com/IlyaFaer/ForwardOnlyGame/releases

With the next build the game will start preparations for an early release in the web stores (it'll remain free though), so feedback is very welcome!
