Update #9

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?

      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)

      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.

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

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

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

      so why kickstarter? just release your prototype ;)

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

      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.

      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

      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?

      Gonna love this game. Can't wait!

      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.

      Creator Alter Ego on February 22, 2013

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

      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.

      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. Fb_profile_picture.small

      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. Missing_medium.small

      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 :-)

      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

      I want to work on this game.

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

      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. Puppetmsn.small

      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. Missing_small

      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 :)

      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.
