DISMAL Survival Game - Alpha 0.1 - Kickstarter
« on: June 23, 2020, 06:49:29 PM »
Hi there!

My name is Gael Romanet, I am a French Video Game Visual Designer and Texture Artist living in London.

With this post I want to share my DISMAL Survival Game (currently Alpha Version) that I am designing as a single developer (for the time being).

DISMAL Survival Game is fully designed with Unreal Engine 4, and is inspired by Subsistence, Stranded Deep, and The Forest games.

My project has been accepted on kickstarter website. You can now back this project if you believe in it. There are some nice rewards doing so.

Kickstarter website: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dismal/dismal-survival-game

Game Story: DISMAL Survival Game is a first person, or third person, exploration survival experience. There are no zombies or cannibals. Only you, and all the threats Mother Nature can muster. Survive the cold, the rain, the snow, and the ocean storms. Manage your hunger, thirst and tiredness. Craft your raft and explore 10 main islands of 16 km 2 each. Craft your axe, your hammer, and build your shelter to survive. Start a fire to cook, to keep warm during the cold nights and winter seasons. Fish, harvest and gather resources. You have no idea how you ended here. You only have this Cross with you. Discover the Truth about yourself!

Video featuring a sunrise walks on the first island of the game. To watch in 4K:

Game Screenshots:



























Road Map (Future implementations).

1 - Wildlife animals - (Bald Eagle, Cougar, Grizzly Bear, American Bison, Moose, Elk, Coyote, and Grey Wolf).

2 - Realistic seasons and weather conditions - (Wind and Cold, Rain, Snow, Thunderstorms and Ocean Storms).

3 - Better Crafting System and Menu Inventory System - (The ability to cut trees and flora, to break small stones, to build a fire and animal traps, to craft a raft to travel from island to island, to build an axe, a hammer, a bow and plenty of arrows).

4 - Management of shelter, hunger, thirst and tiredness - (You will need to craft special tier items. Water Collector, Furnace, Wood, Brick and Metal Stations, and a Bed to save and load your game progress).

5 - Better shelter demolition effects based on full gravity for re collectable resources.

Feel free to share the kickstarter link on your Facebook / twitter accounts. Most importantly, ask your friends to back this project and to share it as well! Every contribution and help are important and will be remembered!

Thank you for reading this far.

Respectfully,

Gael Romanet

This looks pretty cool though, best of luck. I think your goal is set pretty high though imho. Well I love Bears and that wildlife so try to get heavily detailed with them.

Also, this game belonged in Anything Else> Other Games section so I moved it there.

Thank you for the kind comments, this is much appreciated.

I am very involved with my DISMAL Survival project. I am sharing in this forum 16 screenshots in 4K that have been taken while playing the game (first person view).

The islands are designed in a way to always show beautiful views. If you look properly, you can see the crosshair.

Remember you can help with the project with kickstarter website.

The main goal of the kickstarter Dismal Survival page is not to reach the £10,000 goal but to promote advertising and attracting very talented people from all over the world (programmer, composer, etc) to contribute to my project. As planned, this is working very well!

Clearly not since you take every opportunity to shit on us that you can. If you appreciate the kind comments so much, why bother talking shit about our community both behind our backs and on this very forum? I know that you have mental issues, but that's no excuse for being a piece of shit.

Go right ahead. Be a shill for your half assed game that no one will play aside from maybe some 14 year old indie YouTubers.

Not really. Keep on dreaming, though.

Just an update regarding my DISMAL Survival game project.

Like I wrote, the main goal of the kickstarter Dismal Survival page is not to reach the £10,000 goal but to promote advertising and attracting very talented people from all over the world (programmer, composer, etc) to contribute to my project.

Like I also wrote, as planned, this is working very well!

I am very pleased to share here a fantastic news regarding game sound ambiences and musical collaboration with the extremely talented S.A. that worked as an orchestrator for The Long Dark video game, and as a composer for the following films - Heart of Clay (2017) - The Angel (Netflix’s 2018 thriller) -  Hidden Pacific (2019) - just to name a few.

Thank you for reading.

Respectfully,

"Company"

Also, I thought you weren't gonna post here anymore? You just can't stay away, huh? :p

Your website is so high quality that it's made with a free website tool and doesn't even load half the time. Takes like a minute.

Yes. D R O P P E D D E A DG A M E S is a virtual company designing video games.

This is nothing to do with the code of the website but with your internet speed. If your internet speed is "slow for 2020" then the background video will stop, exactly like on YouTube. So you might think the website doesn't even load half the time but this is because your internet connection is not good enough to stream the background video continuously.

The background video needs a high bandwidth to be streamed. Here in London this is fine, same in Paris, N.Y and L.A.

I did some improvement regarding loading time of the background video. The background video on the company website promoting Dismal Survival game should be 5.88 times faster to load now. I don't use a free website tool, I write the code using a .txt file that I change to .html. Website tools add unnecessary spaces everywhere.

Also the background video can be find here in 4K:

Dinomite, thank you for the comment, this was actually constructive!
