Paradox - Zombie TDS RPG Simulator! Updated Again! July 18
« on: April 22, 2011, 04:32:58 pm »
Recently Updated! (AGAIN)

WOOHOO V0.0.80 is now released!!


Edit: Wiki now added for recipes!
http://xsgteam.net/ParadoxWiki.php

What is Paradox?
Paradox is a game based on a Zombie Apocalypse.
It is a top-down 2D shooter, with an RPG aspect.

Currently, you have one goal...Survive.

You can find Metal/Wood, and craft guns to stay alive, but you also have to craft ammo!

There is Blood, Fog/Clouds, Zombies, and Day/Night system with a Day counter.

This game is in PRE-Alpha, meaning it's no where near close to being finished, and will continue to get better!

You can craft via putting items in the crafting box in a certain pattern or "recipe". We give you 2 right away in the read_me file, so check it out.

screen shots:


Default Controls
---------------------------------
Left mouse click -- Shoot / Place Wall (or other objects)
Right mouse click -- Punch / Activate Work Bench / Open Doors
Shift -- Run/Sprint (Gains momentum overtime)
W, A, S, D -- Movement Controls (Changable)
I -- Inventory (Unchangable)
M -- Rotate Object (Placeable Object) (If in HotBar and Selected)
O -- Opens up debug information.
R -- Manual Reload (Changable / Uses current ammo)
Escape -- Exits out of any menu/game state.


How to gather resources?
---------------------------------
Move on top of an resource and press Space once.
A progression bar will be displayed over head.
Once progression bar is filled (100%), a random resource will
fall on to the ground (which you can pick up and use)

Thanks for checking it out.

This looks very interesting, but the download link on your site doesn't work for me. I tried with Firefox 4 and Opera.

I just played the game, and overall it looks nice. Still, there are some  problems:
- I don't think crafting the pistol is possible, I tried a few times and it doesn't work
- The character should move relative to its facing. So if i'm facing right and press W, i want to move right, not up.
- The character has way too many hit points, he should die in 2-3 hits

Also, I don't like the fact that I am forced to register on the site just to try out the game.

Thanks for the input.
There will be an offline mode later on, no worries sorry about forced registration, if you absolutely have a problem with not wanting to sign up, we can send a non-login version.

The pistol should by all rights be possibly, although there is a crafting bug that only "sometimes" works..

you DID try this recipe, right?
1-1-1
0-0-1
0-0-1
0 = blank
1 = scrap metal

The movement sounds like a good idea, we just wanted input on what people wanted. Thanks again!

Your site doesn't seem to work with Opera, but worked fine with Firefox 4.

Yes, I did try the correct recipe.

Also, there is another slot in the work bench, just right of the recipe. What is that for?

That slot is where the item you're trying to make will pop up.
if you craft a, pistol, per-say, once the recipe is completed the pistol will show in the slot to the right.

The site is designed in FF 3.6+ best for 4.0, tested in Opera/Safari and all worked for me.

if it's not too much to ask, can you take a screenshot of your crafting recipe?
if not, it's ok.

like I said, it does have some bugs, so it's always good people are finding them :)

Grr, works for me...
that's the issue we're having, it'll work sometimes..lol

thanks though for submitting the bug issue, we'll be working on it for awhile, and when done will release a patch, with "Offline" mode.

Have you tried restarting your game?

Ah well, I'm sorry =/
it's a bug we're still trying to work out...

Other than that, do you have any other suggestions?

Yes, I've got a few suggestions. I tried to think of stuff which wouldn't be too hard to implement, but would improve the overall amtosphere:
- footsteps :
I think it would be cool if characters would leave footsteps in the grass. Also, even better would be if the character would get blood on his feet, and leave a thinner and thinner trail, until it dissapears. You could do the blood using transparency. Also, perhaps you could add this element in the gameplay later on, making the monsters track you down.
- monster speed:
I think it would add to the dynamic if the monsters where either slower ( and more ) or faster (and more rare ) than the character, so you're actually afraid when you run into one ( or many :) ).
- "craft" button for the table
- animation for collecting items, or at least change the pose;
Also, don't allow the player to change direction while collecting items.

This is what I could think of. I'll let you know if I get some more ideas.

Wow, very detailed, thanks! all of those will be easily implemented ^_^
I Love the foot prints idea, I only wish I had thought of it sooner O.o
