Shadow of the Xel'Naga Chapter 2 sighted!

Postby OutsiderXE » Thu Jun 23, 2011 1:53 am

These are the first five minutes of a 10-20 minutes demo I've worked on for the second Chapter in my campaign. Unlike the GTA/WC3-like hero-gameplay of the first Chapter this one is actually a Point & Click Adventure!

This map is not yet available on Battle.net. Please respond to this video with your Battle.net EU-ID or add me (OutsiderXE.147) if you want to help me test it. EU only!

Features:
- Point and Click Adventure gameplay.
- 10 to 20 minutes of playtime.
- Four difficulty levels that vary the amount of ingame help.
- Fixed camera system (can be switched to classic RTS camera).
- Dialog-basedInventory system
- Optional Two-player-coop.
- Proper work on terrain.

That looks quite cool. You are changing the novel into a Sc2map? I am veyr familiar with the novel.

Lulz, Maglok... o_o
OutsiderXE created the whole "changing novels into playable campaigns" thing...
Take a look in his blog and check the plans (pdf or html) for his latest project SotX. That sounds really innovative...

Never heard of the dude or the novels but it's nice to see someone making progress. Good luck, bro!

Over the last six weeks I've been busy play-testing and tweaking the second third of Chapter 2. This weekend I also managed to do 95% of all visuals in this part. Here are a couple of teasers featuring the revamped a cinematic, the Multiple-Choice-Dialogue-System and the ability Salvage.

Image
The colonists of Free Haven discuss the alien wreckage.

Image
Ghandi Ryan has lost his adoptive son.

Image
The Robo-Harvester is about to use its Salvage ability.

Image
The Robo-Harvester has salvaged some items from this wreckage.

The second of three parts for this map is now almost complete. I'll try and make a video from this part so I can get a couple of testers to help me playtest this part of the map. No need to post a news until then.

After testing, I could just wrap the rest of it up in a cinematic and move on to the next map, but I've created additional content for this map that I wasn't able to include into the first and second part. I'll continue working on this map for a while, but the third part will probably not be as big as the previous.

After many months of hard work Chapter 2 is now ready for public testing. It now has eight times the amount of content than the demo had. It takes me 40 minutes of ingame-time to complete it, and I know the ins and out. My guess is that any other person would need 60-120 minutes.

Added tons of content, new abilities, many things to improve gameplay-fluency. If you are in any way interested in playing a Point & Click adventure within the SC2-universe, THIS is your chance!

I need testers to test:

•everything (fun, riddles, controls, bugs, appeal)
•EU-testers required. Add me on Bnet (OutsiderXE.147) or post your ID here. You can also find me on ICQ at 294455875.

The tests will be held live on Bnet because I want to watch people play. Please don't post real ID/Email. Just your Nickname.Code (move mouse over your portrait on Bnet to find out the code-number).

Looks pretty solid. I'm not EU though, unfortunately.
