Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Velociraptor Job Interview Simulator Pro

edited May 2010 in Singularity Engine++
Sup SE. What's goin' on? I thought you guys might like to know about this videogame me and some dudes are making.

It's called
VELOCIRAPTOR JOB INTERVIEW SIMULATOR PRO

We're making it on Unreal Engine 3 only it's going to be better than those other Unreal Engine 3 games.

Velociraptor Job Interview Simulator Pro is the story of a lone velociraptor who wishes to become a successful businessraptor in spite of the insurmountable racial prejudice which would normally prevent a raptor, or, indeed, any dinosaur at all, from securing a position in a respected corporation. The only recourse for our hero is to attend his job interviews in a cunning disguise, masquerading under a pseudonym. Desperate to achieve success in his harsh corporate surroundings, he is forced to employ not only his razor-sharp wits but his teeth and claws, which are probably even sharper.

VJISP, as it is colloquially known, is kind of a third-person-pouncer stealthy adventurey vaguely Hitman-esque game the likes of which you have NEVER SEEN BEFORE. You must eat your way up the corporate ladder in a literal way.

It's being made by some dudes from this forum (more specifically G&T actually). Three of us previously worked on Shotgun Sunrise, which was this totally awesome Source mod about cowboys fighting zombies in a big blue truck.

    I think the interviewer's voice could be a little more... interviewish. If that makes sense. I dunno. Something about it seems off, maybe someone else can place a finger on it? Or maybe I'm just crazy.

    Application licensing, various expenses, web hosting... although we're doing as much stuff as possible the free way, through special friends. So mostly application/engine licensing. Although our UDK license has already been paid for by previous donations.

    You should get rid of that noise that plays whenever you select a dialog option

    Sometimes I can't make out what's being said because the noise blocks it out

    Yeah, we've done that now. It's just the default Unreal engine "you clicked on something" noise.

    Hopefully Steam when the time comes.

    No, Ross Scott does, and he's the raptor in that interview video. I'm the interviewer.

    So what do you guys think of Ross as a raptor? That's his audition (although I sought him out, not the other way 'round).

    Yes use Ziplock for this.

    Also, this is wonderful and I really loved playing shotgun sunrise with you dudes. I think the raptor stripper should be your game over screen. "You were found out, fired, and now must sell your body for money."

    I had to step back from this project. I was basically lead programmer with maybe two hours a week to actually work on it and that wasn't helping anyone.

    I love this project, and was happy to have done anything on it, and I spent a lot of time at PAX East telling people about it.

    I've always thought of velociraptors as having british accents, personally. Will you be putting in a monacle and top hat as potential disguises? For the distinguished gentleraptor.
