Hi everyone!

I am posting few screenshots of what we made in June. We are finalizing first stage and start making multiplayer. We was planning to launch multiplayer in August but our programmer left so multiplayer will come few months later.

May 2017 development blog

Hello everyone, the work is going on. We have a detailed design document and we are solving many issues, testing many materials, making textures, all this to ensure you get the best experience with Escape Machines multiplayer.

This screenshot is very raw, I didnt want to post it but I couldnt finish some details in May so the video launch is postponed to June 2017.

We plan to launch multiplayer in August.

Please wait for the video coming in few weeks. I am not posting many screenshots now because we are working on ground materials now and trees too.

Roadmap 2017

Hello everyone,

our old indie engineer from Sweden dropped and now I work with new engineer from Slovenia.

Here are few screenshot of robots from game, a laser robot and a mortar.

In game you can play as main hero and also buy robots and control them. As you know in desert there is an entire robots factory so there will be plenty of robots for everyone.

The last year I was working on concepts and story, Escape Machines have awesome design and story about how Artificial Intellect escaped out of control and how people stopped it. I am making artificial intellects so I know what I am talking about and I hope my knowledge will help humanity to stay safe.

I know for sure that wars with AI will happen in near future and I hope we can control it.

My initial plan was to make a beta and find investments but it didnt work, so now I rely only on my own resources. Soon I will have money and will hire programmers and meanwhile we work in an indie team.

The roadmap is to hire more engineers by summer and launch multiplayer by fall and then launch entire game by winter.

Now we are making scripts with C++, I started with blueprints but for a big game blueprints is not an option because it takes too much space. The Flash version of Escape Machines has thousands of lines of code but I programmed 3D environment in Flash, and with Unreal Engine there will be less code but still too much code too use blueprints. I made a screenshot of the character controller blueprint I made, with new version of Unreal Engine I can convert it to C++.

Please feel free to comment, write feedback and also I might publish the story of the game before entire game because the main purpose of this project is to teach humanity how to deal with artificial intellect and war robots.

 

 

Music creation | part 1

Hi everyone, I have more requests on Ludust from music composers, and most of them are asking what theme will be in Escape Machines and what music they can use as a reference. I listened today Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon game soundtrack while working on Unreal Engine game design and I decided to make an inspirational record and share the link to this soundtrack. Its a great reference for music, at least for electronic part. One of our team members André Weiß started the work by making a great mix of electronic and symphonic, and we will have more styles in game. Now I am listening to more tracks and choosing the best parts.
So this is my video:

And in this post I will insert more inspiration for music for composers.
