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!
