About

I would like to start with a small snippet in saying that I do not own the rights to Gundam or any of the related materials for it.  Gundam and all Gundam associated trademarks © Sunrise and Sotsu Agency. This is simply a FREE Fan-Made game. 

M.A.D.N.U.G – REAL MS COMBAT is a project with the goal of bringing to life realistic Gundam/MS simulation on the PC.

It should also be noted that this game is a FREE Fan-Made Title, it will never require payment to pay or use and can be actively downloaded from the below link.

http://madnuggame.com/downloads/M.A.D.N.U.G-Installer.zip

The primary objective is to allow you to experience what piloting a real MS might be like in a more realistic setting then has been provided in the past games that are available from Bandai and Sunrise. You will be responsible for managing the different MS systems, Starting the units before they can be operated, etc. A brief listing of some of the features from the game can be found below most of which are presently available!

Features:

  • Real 3d cockpits with fully clickable buttons, and switches. Also features 6DOF.
  • Start as a pilot and enter/exit MS and other vehicles.
  • Support for TrackIR
  • Full 24 hour realistic day/night cycle when on earth.
  • Realistic Zero-G space physics.
  • Dynamic Weather
  • Detailed 3d models of several popular MS from the series.
  • Realistic Launch process when starting from a ships hangar bay.
  • Support for up to 6 different joysticks for advanced pilot setups.
  • Large maps for intricate and detailed battles
  • and more!

History and why I am asking for funding!

I have been developing this game for the past 2 years and have hit a wall where my lack of knowledge in the below sections keep me from progressing at a decent rate as these items are crucial to the immersion factor of the game. 

  • Modeling / Skinning
  • Animation

I have attempted to get interested individuals to lend their talents to the project however I have been unable to find anyone that either has the free time, or the willingness to lend their talents for free to the project. 

As such I am asking for the fans of Gundam to help me out in overcoming these obstacles and granting me the funds to be able to pay artists in those areas so that we can move forward with the game.

The money will be used to purchase items such as those outlined below:

  • Models (Cockpits, Suits, Ships, Misc)
  • Getting the models Skinned
  • Getting the models Animated
  • Models if needed for the modelers to work from to ensure 100% accuracy.
  • Music and Sounds
  • As needed any software costs

When would the finished game be completed and what is the price once done?

As noted in the section below you can actively try and use the current dev releases now, as well as all future releases. It is my hope that if the project is fully funded I will be able to release a fully tested and feature full release by January 2016.

Since the game is completely FREE there will never be any charges for the software. 

Downloading and Playing the game:

You can actively download and play our current dev release (no donation required) from the link below:

http://madnuggame.com/downloads/M.A.D.N.U.G-Installer.zip

Again please note that the present releases are a Development version and should be considered as such. Please join me in making my vision for M.A.D.N.U.G come true!

Risks and challenges

Most of the concerns related to this project are listed in the description for why we are seeking funding.

However I will attempt to address some of the other possible concerns below, should you have a concern I did not cover please email information@madnuggame.com and I will gladly answer it and also update this section with the information as well.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lack of time to devote to the project:
As most of you may have guessed this is not my full time job, I do however try to devote at least a few hours each day to working on this project. Also with the more funding the project receives the better equipped I will be to bring on additional developers and dedicated staff.

What if something happens and you are unable to complete the game?
As with any project there is always a risk that a life altering event could occur that may prohibit me from personally being able to complete the game.

In the event that something such as this were to occur I would first attempt to pay developers to finish the tasks that I would be unable to complete, and if for any reason the project funds would not support this I would release the entire project code for download to the community so that they may continue the project if they so chose to-do so.
