About

In Doctor Radio's Immersive World you play as this guy:

Doctor Radio loves science and in our universe: science = Radiation!

As Doctor Radio's Action Corespondent it's important for you to understand each of the Prime Radiations. These radiations are the fundamental building blocks of the universe. People born with the ability manipulate Radiation have the immense power to control the fabric of the universe including time travel, immortality, teleportation, thermokinesis, and raising the dead.

Doctor Radio, lacking these natural powers, must use Advanced Science to manipulate Radiation. Using his weapon as a tool to bend the natural flow of radiation, Doctor Radio has circumvented his own shortcomings. With the right weapon configuration, he can gain access to any Radiation Ability he needs.

As Radiation levels throughout the universe rise over time, the importance of his quest only grows greater.

During a vitally important experiment on Meureka, the entire nation is thrown into a pandemic turmoil. Doctor Radio must flee from his beloved home-world as its society crumbles and find an alternative way to finish what he started.

During the process Doctor Radio gets into a tangle with a monstrous conglomerate called Immersival Corporation.

He happens to crash a hijacked spaceliner into one of their Immersive Experience worlds, a moon called Aarde.

So that's the basics of the story, now it's time for some gameplay!

Doctor Radio's Immersive World is a 3D, single player, side scrolling, open world, adventurous shooter. Utilizing our kingdoms of action, science and adventure, Doctor Radio will embark on a quest to redeem his family name and ultimately save mankind.

  • Operate a massive arsenal of modular weapons, customizable to different play styles. 
  • Harness the power of radiation to slay enemies, plot sensitive characters, innocent bystanders or even unlock doors.
  • Collect loot to build weapons with exploding shovels, gravity rays, mods, and AIs for your guns!
  • Achievements reward the player with additional game features like skins, guns, titles, and other fabulous prizes.

It's your job to ensure that nothing will stand between Doctor Radio and his ultimate goal: creating The Plutonium Man.

The game is being developed for PC, Mac and Linux with potential release for major consoles in 2015.

Forum privileges will be activated by December 2013. Prizes like stickers, shirts, bookmarks, coins, calendars, pins, and lab coats will ship around April 2014. Figurines, miniatures, books, banners, and 3D prints will be shipped around September 2015. Doctor Radio's Immersive World and all in-game content will ship with the game around October 2015.

Here's a preview of some of the additional things we would like to include in the game.

At Spooky Ghost Studio we're all artists with a passion for great gaming, good stories, and a destiny to fulfill our dreams. We would be lying if we said we didn't want our story to become legendary. That's is most definitely our goal as well as the level of dedication we're putting into this project. Please feel free to read more about us, visit our site, or even send us an email.

Risks and challenges

The hardest part of making the game we dream of a reality will be balancing the gameplay to ensure optimal funtertainment. We can have super cool art, landscapes and a deep story all we want but we will also focus heavily on ensuring the captivation of the players in the gameplay itself.

It's important that the interface and navigation through menus support fluid movement through mechanics like gunsmithing, intelli-forging, and leveling up in Doctor Radio. Player time in the lab is important but we don't want it to be boring or bland in any way. After all this is Action-Science we're talking about.

To accomplish this we want to build a community of people that we can have test the flow of the game, focusing on navigation, game difficulty and other mechanics to make sure nothing in the game disrupts the fun, nor is tedious, or confusing. We feel like having a side-scroller function in a 3D environment is pretty unique, and there will be plenty of testing needed for it to work the way we want.

As an open-world game we intend there to be a multitude of quests, characters, dungeons, and questlines equating to hundreds of hours of potential gameplay. Creating a project of this scale with a small team will be a difficult task, but we are talented and diligent workers, motivated by releasing a quality product.

To solve this challenge we will make use of modular kits to construct the world, each kit composed of flexible and reusable pieces to build interesting, unique game spaces quickly.

One of our stretch-goals is an expanded art team, we've got our eye on a particular couple of people who would be an incredible asset to us and our project. It's not impossible without them, but we sure would love to have them join us.
