About this project

http://www.omnilinkgame.com/

Omni Link blends an epic visual novel story with real-time gameplay. The gameplay is also unique on it's own. You'll absorb and pilot ships with different abilities and can even use these ships as allies in a A.I controlled fleet for epic battles. You transform into them on the fly. It's awesome!

 

You start the game as a man of little consequence. The first chapter: "A Hero Will Rise" defines exactly who you become.

An entity called "The Virus" awakes near the edge of the galaxy, and heads towards every star. As each star is consumed, people are discovering that this is a real threat. However, no one knows exactly what the Virus is, or has lived to tell about it.

On a routine mission for Zaos, you encounter an advanced warship. In the ensuing battle, both ships are destroyed and become bound together though a process called quantum entanglement.. The experience also binds you to an entity known as Ectype D-8. You quickly learn that there is more to this ship and A.I. that meets the eye.

The artificial intelligence is so advanced, she is able to absorb energy from other ships and duplicate them. As well as quantum burst, administer atmospheric regeneration, and of course...Omni Link.  You find out about these abilities as you play.

On your journey, you will meet dozens of interesting characters: Such as Dannon, a scientist claiming to be D-8's creator, Arcadia, a woman out of time with a dutiful mission as the last of her people.

Other characters such as a pirate boss who's identity is unknown, you're buddy Slicer, a wealthy gangster, and the Arena champion are people who will shape your story. You will earn a bounty, and be hunted by more then just the Virus.

Your choices in the game affect what happens to the story and gameplay in meaningful ways. What ships you acquire, who you save from the Virus threat, and what relationships of love, hate, and friendship you form. Who do you trust?

WALLPAPER REWARD:
(donate $5 or more to receive) *sample size

SHIP DESIGN REWARD:

100's of ready made designs when choosing a look, or we can give you some pieces to make your own.

Then choose what standard weapon, ability, ship speed, armor, etc.. We'll leave it to your imagination, but don't go too crazy.

I uploaded the demo so I could be open to you with what I'm going for. The story comes off a bit quick and with errors at the moment, but this will be fixed with professional help. I "will not" release the game until the story is pristine. You'll also notice many backgrounds are missing, there will be many more in the game.

Thanks for understanding and have fun. More official updates every couple days.

Risks and challenges

The project is mostly done by one person. Should something happen sickness, family, or other. Things could get pushed back.

The goal is to get the game done this year or at the very best, allow our kickstarter backers to play it early.

Game engine:

I am using the GameMaker:Studio engine. I haven't encountered problems yet, but am unaware of potential roadblocks that may change my vision of the game. There have been many commercial games released in this engine and I am confident going forward with it.
