About this project
Cyber-Shot is a sci-fi first person shooter. Made entirely by college students studying game design and illustration. Our goal is to create a game that rivals "AAA" games. The game will be for PC's and possibly consoles.
The game is going to follow the experiences of a soldier from the year 2473. Rebel uprisings have been on the increase, and after an accident you have been recruited to be part of an experimental team of cyberneticly altered soldier. You have recently lost your arms and legs during an operation that went horribly wrong, losing your entire team in the process. You are selected to become part of this elite team of engineered soldier and you are altered to increase your speed and agility...
The game is going to be a very strong and immersive story/campaign. The player will be immersed in a world featuring quick reacting parkour, fast paced tactical shooting, and slow precise tactical situations. Too many shooter games nowadays give a very loose campaign that do not immerse the player in the game and does not make the player feel like they are part of the story. They just seem to try to have a basic story and focus on the multiplayer.
- We want to try to bring something new to the video game industry. We all have fresh ideas and new fresh ways of thinking about games.
- All of the money raised will go directly into helping to create the game.
- We will make regular updates in the form of Vlogs, website updates, and other means to keep everyone updated on the progress of the game.
- In addition to all of the perks listed on the side for investors, anyone who helps fund the game will have early access to the beta/demo.
- If we raise more money than our goal, all of it will go into making the game even stronger.
Right now we are just flushing out the story line and the script. Once we find out if we are going to have funding for the game we will move into production of the game.
~50% Will go towards paying the team to make the game
~30% for programs and equipment
~10% for the KickStarter Rewards
~10% Misc/unforeseen expenses
*This is just a rough estimate once we see how much funding we get I will make a detailed expenses chart available.
Not at this time, We currently are working on the script and story line.
The game will be for PC and we plan on having it also on console, although that will be finalized during production.
If we meet our goal we plan on spending a year and a half to two years to make the game. If we raise more that time frame may change some to allow us to make the game stronger.
Everyone on the team are college students, we are using what we have learned in school and have picked up along the way.
Yes, a lot actually. Almost all of the teachers at our school either are working part time teaching and working at game design studios or used to work in game design.
We plan on using the Unreal engine.
At this time we are not planing on adding a multiplayer. If we raise more than our goal then it will be concidered. If it in any way will take away from the Campaign then we will leave a multiplayer out.
If we do raise enough and have a multiplayer it will be a full multiplayer not one with maps from the campaign reused for multiplayer.
