RW BIVINS TALKS ABOUT THE GAME, KICKSTARTER AND THE FUNDING GOALS FOR THIS CAMPAIGN (VIDEO):

 "This is the kind of game that would fit nicely with Oculus Rift and other technologies like Sony's VR for Playstation. I would love to see it on consoles one day and am very open to discussing it." -- RW BIVINS

This is not a survival game. This is not a shooter game. The zombies haven't risen and this is no walking simulator. Project 37 is a warning, an experience and an open world adventure game that explores the very real concept of what the future could become if Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) development was accelerated without a proper technological leash.

You have been summoned to the fictional island of NewHaven to gather information about recent distress calls made by colleagues who were researching a project in technological defense. Something has gone very wrong and the events you will experience are prior to the end of the world as we know it.

You will have 7 days to try to find out what is happening, discover the secrets of NewHaven and its locations so you can make the choice that will affect the world forever... save mankind or save technology? This may seem like a simple decision to you now, but like all decisions you make during your time in NewHaven, there will be consequences. Those consequences come with a cost that only those without the knowledge of cost in their decisions will fail to see.

Today is Saturday April 25th, 2048. Your name is Jeremy Walker. Welcome to NewHaven and your first row seat to the end of everything you know.

FUN FACTS:

"Thanks to Quaternion Software, Q3D Video will be featured in the game. Unlike traditional video in games, this technology allows me to project full motion 3D video which is viewable from 360 degrees in depth world space." - RW BIVINS

This product takes advantage of modern technologies like real-time dynamic lighting and global illumination. This includes emissions, dynamic water systems with complete underwater environments and areas, physics based dynamic wiring systems, dynamic weather with full day/night/season cycles and is a full featured "living, breathing world" where every experience is different and randomly simulated based on real-world physics.

Risks and challenges

It's game development, so there are tons of risks. I would be a bold-faced liar if I didn't say it. If I could only list all the pitfalls in modern game development here it would end up being a rival to Wikipedia. I honestly believe this project will be completed because I am not the type of person to just "give up" on something. Once I put my heart into something, I will die before I see it fail. I have learned more lessons than I can count on in open-world game design and development since this project began. There is no "do it this way, or do it that way" formula. I had to learn this all on my own. I've developed many optimization techniques and design tricks that I've adapted into this project. What I knew when I began this project and what I know now are like night and day. There was a time when I actually did question whether this type of game could be made by one person or just a small handful of people. I no longer question it because I make progress every day when I load up the game engine and get to work on it.
