Prototype video update

Hey everyone! A lot of people have asked for some more game play footage. We have put together a prototype video showcasing vehicles in ROAM and how you might expect them to work.

Keep in mind, the video is displaying our prototype. It is meant as "moving concept art." The art assets, code, and game play are subject to change.

Thank you everyone for your support towards the project!

      Looks great but maybe more drifting?

    2. Creator Justin on February 25, 2013

      I would like to agree with Nathans comments below. These vehicles really need to have a fuel supply, possibly somewhat limited too after all fuel would be scarce

      Can you scavenge enough parts to repair and get any vehicle running? Also a good idea

      Maybe you can have cars randomized with parts, somewhat like the world being randomized, and the player has to find parts to enable the vehicle to run (assuming it didin't randomize as complete)

    3. Creator Anders T.N on February 25, 2013

      I love the fact that you can run over zombies. Any chance we can go all out an mount guns and other cool gadgets to vehicles?

      You guys are amazing, every time I see more gameplay it makes me want the game even more. I really can not wait to play this game.

    6. Creator Jalister - OOoE - WoOS - SoSR on February 22, 2013

      That was awesome. The car, the way you took it, driving through the enemy camp, the music. It all has to be in there.

    7. Creator Lokai on February 22, 2013

      Looks great! Now combine that with some of your original gameplay in a video so I can show it off to some people.

    8. Creator Frederik Hesseldahl Havemann on February 22, 2013

      Alright... this did it for me. Consider yourselves backed...

    9. Creator Sheggo on February 22, 2013

      that looks damn great! good old GTA style! :D

      so why kickstarter? just release your prototype ;)

    10. Creator Anthony B on February 22, 2013

      No greetings, no negotiations, just pop 'em in the dome and take his vehicle. Harsh.

    11. Creator Andreas Pokorny on February 22, 2013

      Thank you for that update. It looks really intersting.
      The first thing that came to my mind in the second part of the movie was:
      Will all Cities look so boring quadractic/rectangular with straight roads?
      I find that rather distrurbing, although this is normal in sone regions of the world.
      Please consider making the cities look older / organically grown over the ages.
      That would add a lot of recognition value to the maps
      I.e. look around in google maps / open street maps. Maybe you can even import data from there, and create a hidden markov model from the different types of city street maps and generate altitude/landscape/region specific cities.

    12. Creator Rick Dove on February 22, 2013

      Looks great, I just hope the rag doll physics are adjusted before release. I noticed that when the car slammed into a group of zombies they slid away like they'd been greased up

    13. Creator Onion Tom on February 22, 2013

      Enorme !

    14. Creator Uri Baruchin on February 22, 2013

      Looks fun, and the music is awesome.

    15. Creator Dean on February 22, 2013

      ... Amazing!

    16. Creator Hendrik Brünni on February 22, 2013

      Do you already have a Concept of how the Car gameplay will be in Co-op? Will multiple Players fit in One Car? If yes will they be able to shoot Out of the Car Windows?

    17. Creator Ron Nichols on February 22, 2013

      This game looks better and better every time I see it!! I can't wait to play the beta!! :D

    18. Creator drfish on February 22, 2013

      @Alter Ego
      It's called Zombie Driver. ;)

      Can't wait to ROAM!

    19. Creator Ferry Kummer on February 22, 2013

      Looks already very promising!! :-) Really looking forward to further development!!

    20. Creator Nik Phillips on February 22, 2013

      I love how this reminds me of original GTA, only in 3d and with the undead! Love it!

    21. Creator euansmith on February 22, 2013

      This should tide me over until the new Carmageddon comes out :D

    22. Creator Domidragon on February 22, 2013

      Gonna love this game. Can't wait!

    23. Creator ZerroWolf on February 22, 2013

      Looking good guys. Although it would be great if you could select a vehicle and develop it like a character with XP and part upgrades etc. Sort of like another PC with health and skills etc.

    24. Creator Alter Ego on February 22, 2013

      LOL, just driving around over Zs could be become a game on it's own :D Great!

    25. Creator Ryan Burke on February 22, 2013

      Question. I assume this is only due to it being an early product, but I have noticed a lack of HUD or any UI. ALso, someone asked a bit further down, will fuel be a thing that is kept track of? What about armor and other things. I am excited by the prospect of the car, but , just need some info.

    26. Creator IronSpike on February 22, 2013

      The driving looks AMAZING. And was that a preview of the sneak mechanics we saw? Can't wait to play this game with friends!

    27. Creator Ole Johnny Aasen on February 22, 2013

      When driving, could the car go a bit further back on the screen, that way we can see where we are driving better. Now you only have a 0,5 second to know when to brake or turn, at full speed.

    28. Creator Hans on February 22, 2013

      Hey that's nice looking stuff, seeing that one question came in my mind, what's with player occlusion, if the player is close to the north facing side of a building? Keep the spirit up, can't wait to play the Beta :-)

    29. Creator Charles Doussot on February 22, 2013

      A question: if you had face over him will he shoot you?

    30. Creator Charles Doussot on February 22, 2013

      Looks like first GTA! ;)

    31. Creator Jordan York on February 22, 2013

      oops... stupid browser jumped from one page to another... haha (that last post was for the latest Project Awakened update). Looks great guys! Thanks for the vid. Can't wait to play :)

    32. Creator Jordan York on February 22, 2013

      Great update! Let's hope the modding community catches wind of this :)

    33. Creator DanMac on February 22, 2013

      Will we be able to modify these vehicles?

      @Daniel Marquez
      I already asked them about that, they said that run animation is just a placeholder. Tho I referred to is as a "happy cartoon bear" as opposed to your "cheerleader on crack" lol

    34. Creator Richie Bisso on February 22, 2013

      I want to work on this game.

    35. Creator Daniel Marquez on February 22, 2013

      cool stuff, but please make a decent walk animation instead of that cheerleader on crack jumping one .... :)

    36. Creator Roman Duenas on February 21, 2013

      THAT WAS AWESOME@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! QmQ

    37. Creator illuminus on February 21, 2013

      That was.....ok I guess.

      Just kidding, that was frickin' AWESOME! :) You guys rock!

    38. Creator Thomas Ingham on February 21, 2013

      I wish I could play this game today.

    39. Creator Jose Olivera on February 21, 2013

      Might also be fun if you can hire an Npc that will shoot as you drive the truck around.

    40. Creator Nathan Shugart on February 21, 2013

      Awesome! Keep up the good work!

      Will vehicles have attributes, such as health, fuel, armor etc...

      Can you scavenge enough parts to repair and get any vehicle running?

      Search inside all vehicles? Take parts from some to put into others? Say by vehicle size... S/m/l "x" part

      Just some thoughts/ideas

    41. Creator Larry Barriere on February 21, 2013

      I'd say that all it needs is some ability to drift (so it's a bit more back heavy when cornering) and it's pretty much solid.

    42. Creator Adam Truncale on February 21, 2013

      NICE! I was surprised when you shot the guy an stole his car... I was expecting some boring dialog or something :)

    43. Creator nin on February 21, 2013

      Coming together nicely!

    44. Creator Kyle on February 21, 2013

      Looks good, I assume there will be a map and most likely a scrollable camera? just if you were in an armoured vehicle or something shooting, and you run across an enemy in a vehicle, how would you see them to shoot at them? just looks a bit too zoomed in is all.

    45. Creator Bill Kerr on February 21, 2013

      Wish i got the wheels pack now, my cruiser would be so cool in this!

      Looks fantastic guys, keep doing an awesome job

    46. Creator Drew on February 21, 2013

      Promise me that music will be in the game. PROMISE ME!

    47. Creator Goatee on February 21, 2013

      HHahaha looks great!
