ABOUT THE GAME
Command your units from above or join them below. Immerse yourself in the entire experience of a full scale battle. This will be the world of Light of Day, a Real Time Strategy and First Person Shooter all in one. Here are some of the many features of this game!
Cater to Three Genres of Games - Modern Day with the government faction, Post-apocalyptic with the people faction, and semi-futuristic with the corporation faction.
Destructible environments - blow up buildings around you and watch them crumble to the ground, run over trees, blow craters in the ground, all of which stay the entire length of the battle
Real time strategy - command your units from above. Select multiple units and tell them exactly what you want them to do. Use your strategic thinking to get an edge up on the battlefieldFirst person shooter - Become a unit on the ground… see the battle up close: Drive a tank, fly a helicopter, pilot a jet, run on the ground, speed through the battlefield in a humvee, it's all up to you.
Resource collecting - Become immersed in the world by having to keep up with materials for your factories, fuel for your units, power for your buildings and defenses, and food for your troops. Watch as your supply trucks bring supplies to and from your base and your units in the field. Make sure the enemy doesn't set up a successful blockade and if they do, make sure you crush their efforts.
Resource Management - Control distribution centers, send your trucks to units in the field, manage how your resources are spent. Or let the AI do it for you so you have more time for the fight.
Detailed gameplay - Control every aspect of the battle. Every possible detail of commanding an army is built into this game. Although it can be a daunting task at times, realism is key to LOD.
Three Factions - The government (modern day weaponry/machinery), the people (post apocalyptic weaponry/machinery), and the corporation (slightly more advanced weaponry/machinery).
Battles All Over - Land, Air, and Sea. All three can be simultaneously happening at once… On the same map!
UNLIMITED Units - although there are unlimited units, there is a unit cap dependent upon how many housing units you have built. The more housing you build the more units you have, therefore, there is no limit to the amount of units you can have…
Difficult Superweapons - There will be superweapons in the game that can be deactivated via the checkbox in the skirmish window. First you must research the basic building blocks of superweapons. The plans and details were lost in the cataclysmic event. These superweapons will be very difficult to obtain as you will have to fight for the limited spots on the map that have the materials you need to create them. After you lay stake to that land, you must mine for the materials. Then you must build refinement plants and wait. After a while you will have the materials needed for the construction of a superweapon.
Needy AI - Your units need sleep, they need water and food, they need to slow down every once in a while… They will do all these automatically if you choose, or you can choose when and where they sleep, eat and fight hard.
Morale - Troop moral can be influenced by many things… Battle fatigue, lack of food/water/sleep, a harsh leader, and a number of other things. Help to ensure good troop morale as this will improve your battle readiness.Built for large battles - LOD's engine will be built ensuring that large battles don't end in BSODs.
Full Day/Night Cycle - Fight during the day, fight during the night… Fight at dawn, fight at dusk. The world cycles from day to night at a speed of about 30 times as fast as regular time.
Full Weather - Fight in the pouring rain, thunderstorms, even tornadoes and hurricanes. These disasters could make or break a battle.
Camping - With the night cycle comes sleep. Your units (when in large groups with a camping vehicle) can now camp at night to give them an extra boost on the battlefield. Their moral will be higher and their performance increased
This game is set in the year 2032 following a major cataclysmic event. With billions on the side of the globe affected dead, three powers rise up. Play as any of these forces in a single-player campaign or in multi-player skirmishes. If enough money is raised we may add persistent multi-player to the mix.
WHERE'S THIS MONEY GOING?
ALL of the money will be going directly to the making of this game, the more money we get, the better the game we can make.
VP and MY LEGACY
We are already in talks with some great people that have decades of experience in the video game industry, and they're ready to get this game started. All we need is you! We need a substantial amount of money to go from no staff, to fully staffed, and have them work for a year and a half straight!
