So... What is "The Edge of Extinction" ?
GEAR UP AND GET READY!
FOR THE FIGHT OF YOUR LIFE! WE PRESENT TO YOU"
THE EDGE OF EXTINCTION!"
The Edge of Extinction is a First person, multilayer, online zombie apocalypse survivor game. The entire game is based on the end days of earth after a bio-organic weapon got into the wrong hands and was launched at Russia and infected the entire Middle East area. It soon spreads to the rest of the world; pushing man kind to the edge of extinction. Food, medical supplies, water and safety are now scarce as you fight your way to survive what's left of the world. Team up with friends, or people you don't even know; All around the world in an epic battle against the dead. Choose your race! Will you be a civilian( friendly to all others enjoys teaming up and look for survivors and fighting the horde. Ridding the world of this Horsed infection)! Or will you cross over to the independent as a loan wolf with lack of trust in anybody, shoot on site and ask questions later trying to take the world on by yourself!
Here is a short introduction to the game.
As mankind, we always thought that we would be the cause of our own extinction. Although we always think that it would be through weapons of mass destruction and war that would cause this sudden cease of life. Not even I thought that it would be any thing like this... Someone got their greedy little hands a bio-organic weapon, and launched it at Russia. The effects were catastrophic. When the weapon dropped, the population of Russia down to nearly zero! Leaving it at a devastating 3% left alive... Russian doctors tried their best to help the survivors, but there was nothing that they could do. It left scientist and doctors baffled as they scrambled to find a cure. Yet nothing emerged... Nobody could cure something that they had no intelligence of. The infections spread and soon infected the entire Middle East by nuclear fallout. It soon hit the news all over the world that there was a possible airborne virus. As the virus spread to the population through survivor travel; the population kept dropping and hope for a cure became less and less possible and more like a medical myth. By week 3 the virus had engulfed the entire earth infecting: small children, adults, and even animals. Most people who showed symptoms were dead in a few days; others weren't so lucky... The ones who didn't die were transformed into crazed meat eaters now known to us, as the living dead. Those who were lucky enough to be immune from this horrible virus are forced to scavenge for for survival. Supplies such as food, drinks, and medical help are now scarce as they try to protect their family and friends and outlast this Hell we all now live in. We are what's left. Knowing not when our last days are to come, every waking moment is a question: "Will I live today?" "Will a love one die?" "Will I wake up tomorrow?" We will never know the answers. It's depressing to see people you know and love turn into this evil being and dropping all human instinct they had to killing the immune because they see it as survival of the fittest. I know it sounds crazy but try to view it through our eyes when the world is withering away and man kind is pushed to the edge of extinction with you stuck right in the middle of it... you tell me what the hell would you do..?
So? What do we have to show you guys!?
Some Example Pictures/Screen shoots of some walking dead in the game Note this is not even 1% of the diffrent types of dead. Just a sneak peak! Be aware the modles below are not finished and not yet added in the rendered game For that reason! Still alot of work to do But enjoy!
Another video that was taken with the i Phone hope you enjoy. The quality wasn't the best because the Intense sun shaft Light Effects and Light shades Were really bright on the i Phone But it looks good to us. The Video below is an example of one of the Many Forest that the players are provided. For those players who want to customize traps and hunting weapons for gathering up live game for food this feature has been brought to you by the development team. Lets face it Caned foods and boxed foods will run out eventually! So there has to be some other Way to get food Hut! But be careful the dead are every were at night and your they're meal! SO KEEP TRACK OF THE TIME!
Sneak peak at the prototype "Game Case Cover!"
As you and I both know the IDEA for a video game can come pretty easy; I mean anyone can think of the type of game they would like to make, but, then comes: the learning process, trial and error, and have knowledge of computer 3d graphics and programming. Even if you have all this have you stopped to think about the money it would take to develop it. How to require the development team and software needed to bring the game to life?
This is were you "the backer" come into the picture.
With you support we could easily meet our goals for funding this project. W ether we meet our goal or not, we will still be grateful for your effort in trying to see this games existence in today’s world! We have set a goal for $300,000 as this is what we need for this project to be successful.
The Minds Behind the game!
We started out as just me and Joe and after doing so looking and digging we are now almost a full team of 7 members working day and night on this game. Its Been exhausting but well worth it for how far we have come.
The Development team
James 21 years of age
Position in the team. Prefab,mesh,Character models, Designer and developer. As a crucial Part of this team I have taken on the job for designing every thing that will be placed in this game this includes Creatures, player character designs, Plants, animals, buildings car's,Weapons, parasitical effects, Clouds ex. I love this Job I enjoy Coming up with the ideas for the game models that are introduced to the game I also enjoy working with the rest of my development team on this game its been a great Journey and through all the twist and turns we have always pulled through to the very end. :)
Joe 24 years of age.
He has taken on the job as part of the development team to Develop the scripting in our game. We use a program called Mono Develop to produce the scripts that run every thing we need to happen in the game as well as its helps us properly render the animations needed for Animals, dust, Light rays, Sun flares, Direction lighting ext. With out his job we could not create our main menu that you can view below. Joe has came up with the script called a hover script it basically tells the game that if the mouse collides with the 3d GUI text on the screen, then it should act on such in our menu if we were to click the survival button it will load the next menu allowing us to select either Return to main menu, new game, or load save. We have provided a video of the menu below! We haven't added the video of the menu that loads the next menu after we click survival but the video is coming soon, we are currently finishing the secondary menu.
This Video Contains Music audio i do not take credit for in any way it was just used to give a realistic feel for the scary menu the flickering light sound is the only audio i take credit for thanks!
Do not Fullscreen this video For some reason its cuts the screen in half.
The quality wasnt as great as we expected in the video because we had to use a Iphone as an improvized video capture unit due to lack of Screen capture software.
As of now the Secoundary menu is complete! 1-29-14 Please stay tooned for future updates! There is a video of the working two menus for some reason the video lags a short secound after i clicked survival buts its okey. Enjoy!
The Sun shaft Light effects are too bright on this ipod recording Sorry for this incase you didnt figure it out the secound menu says Return to main menu, New game, load save . Hope you enjoyed!
Dustin 20 years of age
Map designer and sketch artist for different Designs of the Terrain of the game. This is how the map is lay ed out before any textures or models i design and develop are added if there are rivers in the map he designs the unique look how wide how deep, The twist and curves in the river, how fast the water should move ex. As well as he works with Michael as a partner team in Designing the Shades.
Michale 21 years of age
2nd Sketch artist This job is one of the MOST IMPORTANT part of our game in its development stage. The artist here will sketch out the textures to be assigned to the terrain buildings zombies characters and animals as well as the cars, road, grass, trees, and other vegetation! The textures are produced in Photo shop, Gimp, May, And blender. as well as Z brush. After the textures are finished I (James) will then apply the textures to the proper Material associated with the model its should be assigned to. Last but not least He is Required to design and develop the Image effects, such as Image based lighting, Reflection, refraction and refraction Ex.
Katie 19 years of age
Has chosen a field in the job she is best at Audio source development. She designs all of the audio in the game you should hear based on whats happening in the game. If your by some zombies they should be giving off a certain audio sound based on the distance you are if you are close enough to Hear their moans and growls then you ans the gamer should be able to hear these sounds. She produced the audio musics and other collision sound effects in the game as well such as heavy breathing associated with the player while he/ she may be running. Gun shots and sounds of bullets Bouncing off other objects in the game.
Shay den 18 years of age. the youngest of the grouper his skills have impressed us all. Even though the models and animations for animated game objects in the game rant yet complete he has still yet to fail in amazing us all. We will be giving some sneak peaks in the future updates displaying the animated finished result of those models So stay tuned ! :)
Animation Developer Shay den
Has taken on the roll of Designing and producing the finished rendered animations applied to a particular game object with the required script Joe produces,So that the object will behave in the proper manner. For example if you want the zombie you shot to fall over when it dies, or if you shoot one in the head the And the head is head supposed to explode, then you need the animation for these actions as well as the scripts to apply the behavior when its supposed to.

Risks and challenges
1.) Wether or not we will receive the funding on time?
2.) Did we get your attention enough to want to back this project?
3.) Will the game get completed on time?
4.) Will the public like the game and, will it interest the public enough to make them want to play it?
5.) Working with out the needed software limmiting us to what we have to use
at the moment, and with your help we can take our skills to the next level by introducing new 3d rendering effect to the game as well as shortening our release date by a few months!
