Announcing a soon-to-be-released project 'Sunken World'
'Sunken World' is a simple bow & arrow game, quite similar to UltraSports Archery- but a little further towards BowMaster Prelude. You take the place of a 'Kraken' defending a mysterious ocean realm from invading humans. Think Avatar, but 30,000 ft down beneath the waves.
Sunken wtf? I hear you say. What happened to 'Insanity 3'?
Well, it's simple. Insanity 3 is in the works. It's my intended opus; the game I really want the knock the Flash gaming community on it's ass with and set the bar for future titles for the feint-of-heart to croak on. Rest assured, it is coming; already a ton of progress made on it- BUT it's an extensive development. As I've already said, I'm not expecting to make any great sponsorship money from it. Therefore I've got to work on some smaller games inbetween production to a) stop me getting bored of it, and b) to try to make a bit of cash so that I can justify my ambitions to be a coder to family and friends, and enable myself to go out for a drink once in a millenium.
This isn't to say 'Sunken World' is a pile of crap. Quite the opposite! I actually think this is one of my better efforts; the graphics are impeccable, the gameplay fun, challenging and addictive, also I've totally mastered bitmapData now so you can expect to see some impressive pixel particle effects without any of the lag seen in some of my previous games. This game could actually go pretty far- mind you, I felt the same way about 'Chronicle' and that f*cker sank like the Titanic. I'm probably going to use Mihai for some of the audio as usual, but I've also been talking to another damn impressive guy who's music I like, and this chap has some unabashed talent- imagine a young James Horner in the making. More on him later.
Anyway, I'll leave you with the leading intro text to 'Sunken World' - all the better for you to imagine what the game will be like.
A BOOM IN SPACE EXPLORATION AND THE ECONOMIC GROWTH OF MANKIND
PLACES AN INSATIABLE TOLL ON THE LIMITED FUEL MEASURES OF THE PLANET.
DEEP-SEA SCIENTIFIC DATA EXPEDITIONS ACCIDENTALLY
UNCOVER A SOURCE OF THERMAL POWER BEYOND MAN'S
WILDEST DREAMS- AN ETHEREAL REALM POPULATED BY LIVING
BEINGS OF PURE ENERGY- NAMED THE 'THEREA', HIDDEN DEEP
WITHIN THE OCEAN.
SUBSIDIZED BY WEBS OF POLITICAL LIES QUICKLY SPUN, A SUBMARINAL
FLEET OF THE MOST DEVASTATING BATTLE TECH IS DISPATCHED TO THE
OCEANIC UNDERWORLD WITH CLEAR DIRECTIVES:
'INVADE AND CAPTURE'
THE COMMANDER OF THE SEA-BEINGS PRAYED FOR THE AID OF THE ANCIENT
GODS THAT WERE KNOWN TO THEM AS 'THE SENTINELS'
WE KNOW THEM AS 'KRAKEN', DARK NIGHTMARES OF NAUTICAL HISTORY-
THOUGHT OF ONLY TO EXIST IN MYTH.
AWAKENED FROM THE FIERY CORE OF THE WORLD, THE FURIOUS SENTINELS
ASCENDED FROM BENEATH THE SEDIMENT TO MEET THE ONSLAUGHT IN BATTLE.
'DEFENDERS OF THEREA, NEVER LET THE IMPETULANT HUMANS FORGET THAT THEY ARE ONLY THE CHILDREN OF NATURE,
THOUGH MAY YOU ALSO GRANT THEM THE MERCY OF IT'
