Discuss and unveil current Marathon projects.

Post Sep 21st '06, 00:39

after long debate, I have decided to scrap Starship Marathon, in order to do a different project. This will be something totly unrelated to marathon, but will use the aleph one engine. basically im going to put drawings from my sketchbook into the game. using simple color schemes (as simple as the enemies in PID anyway) I will put my work into the game. this way of work will allow the scenario to come out quite quickly (i draw faster than an indy race car) and with good quality. the scenario will have a simple story to it, something like you are a normal person that got sucked into a sketchbook that you were looking at, and you have to battle you wy through the pages doing simple tasks to get free. now the fun part is that i can easily put in anything you want into the game, all i need is a simple sketch or pic, and i can figgure out its movement and put it down on paper then scan it into anvil. i will put in some of my own sketches but you can deffinately put in some ideas of your own. since the ability to put up artwork is currentally broke on this site, you can email me sketches or give them to me via AIM/iChat/Adium @ Dieselfame3. my email is marathonuesc@mac.com. I havent come up with a title for the scenario so you guys can help me with this too. sorry if you had your hopes up for Starship Marathon, maybe sometime in the future i will get back to work on it. ill put up some sketches soon.

heh, good one.
Thanks for puttin' up the stuff on the orphanage some time in the future.
Also I hope you won't abandon the Marathon engine, cause then there really wouldn't be any connection between your TC and the Aleph world...apart form excessive blast the ventcore comments you might leave in secret areas maybe..

Dieselfame3, is it a sketch book like this?

http://www.ambrosiasw.com/forums/index.php...y&cmd=sc&cat=19


LOL.

It's a upcoming game, currently in making by Ambrosia software.


Why don't you just draw a picture of some horrifying monster? Maybe like behemoth, dragons or something.


Or maybe a second thought, what about those zergs from starcraft?

I can't wait to get the thrill of being hit by zerglings and being spit on by a Hydralisk.


(Since I'm not that rich to buy Starcraft Ghost and it's platform.)

but better graphics also make up for a good game, it would be considered as the "next step of marathonic evolution". besides, resurection's graphics aren't that good,, that's why i started my own project, so far so good, but since is only me, the advance is rather slow.

The sketchfighter game looks surprisingly like marathon map-veiw.

This looks like it'll be fun to play, as long as there is plenty of content.

Btw, I really hoped that you would finish SSM, because it looked so awesome.

If it's tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

i still got all the work on it, i just want to see if this experment works, ill do a few test levels and if it works out then ill leave it at that, and head back to SM,if the scketchbook works out like i think it will then ill easily be able to draw the frames for sm and color them in ps and fix em up a bit, it just got really tiring to draw the monsters from scrap in ps, if i draw out the frame and general features on paper and put them on the computer its alot easier to work with. sides when i get back to work on sm, i will really need help making it, i know for a fact that if i work on it alone, it will take years to make
