Though most of you already know, it has been my desire for a time to make a UDK project. To step away from modding and go into actual game design. Very recently, the UDK finally released an update containing their new Foliage system, the system I was waiting on to begin experimental mapping and all that. Though this is only a part of what I need to understand to begin work, it has been an intentional barrier obstructing any desire to put effort into the idea for nearly a year now.
The project initiated as an evolution of my Starcraft 2 campaign, but I quickly realized I did not care very much for the Armageddon Onslaught 2 universe. It is likely that if I had the skill and talent to bring it to life I could fill in the gaps, but I'd much rather work with something I've already established.
Loladins of Legend.
It started as a Wc3 AoS on this very forum, and was greatly expanded in the Age of Wonders 2 total conversion. LoL remains a young universe, and has a great deal of openness and mystery left to explore. Its care free, politically incorrect expression is perfect for this game concept.
For now, I focus on getting Black Sun episode 1 finished. But after that I have nothing left to tell myself I can't do, besides the process of learning what needs to be learned. Programming, modeling, mapping, everything inbetween. All I have done up to this point was nothing compared to what I will be undertaking. Even if failure is for certain, mods can do no more for me. I've outgrown the playground. I am as ready as I will ever be to enter the real world of game design. The only path is forward.
The source for all things IskatuMesk and then some. From projects, to articles, and even Let's Plays- it's all here for the taking.
