Hey guys,

As you may have seen in one of the other posts, i'm currently working on a christian RPG. We've been bouncing ideas around for a while, and it's really come together over the past 3-4 months. The storyline is complete, character sheets and tables are complete. The design document will be finished today.

This is a really serious project, using the 3d GameStudio engine as my own RPG engine is no where near finished, and we are keen to get moving with this.

We have limited financial backing, so i am able to purchase tools and such if you are really serious about joining.

We currently need:

3d artists (modellers and texturing)
Concept artists
Level designers
Programmer (familiar with 3d GameStudio if poss)

Anyways, if your interested then please post here and i can send you the completed doc later today.

Thanks Guys.

I have 2 questions.
1. Is it an action orientated RPG (eg, Diablo), or classic type RPG. Or perhaps somewhere in between?
2. Is this a commercial project, and if so, how many people do you have, and will you have working on it?

1. The game would be an AD&D style rpg, like Neverwinter Nights an Baldurs Gate. The storyline we have is based around the book of revelation, just in a different setting, instead of seven churches there are seven races... that kinda thing.

2. Yes this is a commercial project, we have about 3-4 so far, but hoping to have between 10-15 people.

Thanks guys.

I'm interested in your project. I have never worked with 3D Game Studio, but I have about 12 years of programming experience. If you'd like to chat with me, please private message me or send me an email. I tried to send you an email earlier, but it got rejected. Thanks.

Ok, thanks for the info. I was a tiny bit interested, but I'm just not a fan of the slower rpgs. Just a personal preference.

Sincerly hope it works out though!

k.. this pic is pretty much my caliber. my faces don't look that good. spent most of my time drawing space ships and robots when I was a kid. lol

Warrior of the Tiger

the scan kinda brought out the smudges.


oh... and if you need any help in the concept department, from art to story, just ask... cuz I spend too much time daydreaming. like I have this world, allegorical to spiritual warfare, floating around it my head...lol.
oh, and one about the nephilim.

visiting America? awesome. my homeland...

Hey thanks ArchAngel thats really cool. Yeh we could do with some help developing the story and stuff.

Mr. Ex Nihilo your work looks pretty kool. It is hard developing the game mechanics of it, and having to sacrifice certain features. Anyways i'll email you.

I'm currently in Wooster, Ohio. It's nice here, lots of Amish people which i thought was quite amusing. But i'll be able to give you all some more detail about the game when i get back.

Hi again,

ArchAngel,

How did you submit that artwork in your post above? I tried to copy and paste a sample image into the text and it wouldn't work. I must be doing something wrong.

Maybe it's here and it will show up.

Bro Rich!

May God grant you safe travels after you visit your brother.

You know how swamped I am! But keep me in mind if you are in a real bind. I would hope that I could do okay at level design by now but the question is time.

For sure sign me up as a tester. I will have the capability to test most Windows OSes too when you are further along.

God bless your efforts,
Tim

It's actually a bit of both. We didn't want to shy away from God in the Game, yes there is God and Jesus, just set in a fantasy world. A bit different.

We're currently up to chapter 15 on paper, but just need to type it up.

Sigh it's my birthday today. 20 yearls old now

Hi guys,

I'm going to have to pull out as far as any assistance I can give is concerned. I'm sorry if this causes any problems. It sounds as if you're going to have an awesome game. I hope everything goes alright for you and your design team. If you really, really, really need some assitance with some graphics, contact me and I'll see what I can do to help you.

I'll be editing one of the above posts if I can soon. After praying about some advice at another forum, I've decided the Ex Nihilo game system is probably not suitable for children (and given it a 17+ rating). I would rather the link I posted above be removed than have young children see it and become confused by it.

Again, sorry for any confusion. Thanks for your time guys. I'll probably see you around the forums here.

Yours in Christ,
Mr. Ex Nihilo

PS: In case of "graphics" emergency, contact me.

Just a little update. The game design and plan has changed loads.

The project was pretty adventureous for an indie team's first project so i've scaled it down a lot. It plays a lot more like an FPS with RPG elements.

The design document is now 75% done, just need to add all of the level details, which i haven't completely fleshed out. Storyline is in though, abd game elements. I will then need to complete some storyboard pics.

I have started work on, just hashed together a quick menu system and level. Doesn't do a lot, but it has a start game button that starts the level and options for sound and video, also a quit button :P

I really do need some help, so please email if you can help in away possible.

Thanks Guys.

Well... if you want my input I think that you shouldn't put anything like magic & spells in that game altough but if you did then I think it should be highly symbolic like C.S. Lewis did.

I guess it's because I'm trying to produce the Ex Nihilo game so that it places our Christian faith in a world that has other real-world faiths. This stems from the concept that we as beleivers are "in the world but not "of" it.

I've been discussing the implications of this and after prayer felt it more responsible to place some type of age restriction on it. If people are going to play, I would rather have them be soundly rooted in their faith (or "mature" so to speak) so they would not be tempted to give in to something that run's contrary to the Christian faith. I would feel terible if a child had read something in this that made them question their faith in Jesus.

Please note, there are no "sexual themes" in it aside from a discussion of why I feel some things go bluntly against God's design for humanity.

D-SIPL, if you need assistance, I would still be very willing to help you. I have a fairly good background in illustration graphic design and web-page design. My initial reason for pulling out was becuase I've recently found out that my job has been contracted to another -- thus leaving me potentially unemployed in roughly a month and a half.

It's an understatement to say I felt very frustrated. I felt that I should refocus on where my "educational" career was going. However, after praying about it further, I felt that to pull myself out of the possibility of helping you in the "gaming" industry would be going against the Lord. Please let me know what you would like me to do. I am willing to help you in any way that I can if it is within my ability to do so.

Blessings,

Hope to hear from you soon.

Mr. Ex Nihilo

Thats what i thought. It could be done, but if you do, some chrisians don't see it as a symbolic way and what put it down as down right occultish. lol.

Mr. Ex Nihilo. I have emailed you the design doc, hope you get it ok. I really want to thank you for making yourself available for this project it's really appreciated.

God Bless guys.

Just a quick update.

The design document is being updated almost daily. A lot of things having to be added to future features as some of them are not feasible right now. I desperately need a Level Designer. I have registred the domain name today and will hopefully have a website up shortly.

Please either post here or email me if you are interested.

D-SIPL,

How's the game going? I just thought I'd check in and see how things were going.

You should put your web site as your "web page" link in this forum (linked to the little "www home icon" down below your posts).

I'm putting the image together in my mind... so.. I'm working on it. I'll include more quasi-science on it too. haha. we all love quasi-science.

EDIT: oh.. which reminds me... since I'll be explaining the structure of it... you could almost make it like you can upgrade your weapon. like, buy an upgrade to make the shots faster, faster fire rate, more power, more ammo, more accuracy.
just some random thing that sounds cool to me at the moment. lol.

It does sound like a good idea. But then i suddenly thought. End times... to trade you would need the mark of the beast. it would be a cashless society. Maybe find some other way around it.

in gold... everything comes down to gold... haha. okay, I just finished yet another economic class. you don't even need to trade with money, if you want. you can have it so that, when you accomplish so many objectives, you rise in rank and are given an upgrade of your choice.
just another thing thrown up.

actualy I advise you leave gold out of it. In such desperate times gold would be worth nothing to criminals/ christians. I think most of it would be bartering, just assign everything a "worth" (point) value for the system to know what to trade. I think one of the main thingss being traded would be food.

Heh.

I like the idea of trading. Other christians will find it hard to get things like food, and it would be something you could trade.

Anyways the site is up in a very limited basic form. May work on it if i have time later. Unfortunately i've had to teach myself level development as i know of no-one who can help out, and that is takin time.

Have some screenshots as well.

I'll send you the design doc again, it's got details about the engine in that. Plus it has been added to, mainly to add stuff talked about here.

level development is flexible as long as i can get the levels in the right format, i'll check the formats out.

That would be great Brandon.

Thanks Guys.

I guess it's because I'm trying to produce the Ex Nihilo game so that it places our Christian faith in a world that has other real-world faiths. This stems from the concept that we as beleivers are "in the world but not "of" it.

I've been discussing the implications of this and after prayer felt it more responsible to place some type of age restriction on it. If people are going to play, I would rather have them be soundly rooted in their faith (or "mature" so to speak) so they would not be tempted to give in to something that run's contrary to the Christian faith.


No offence but that's not only very patronising to younger people but also borderline deceitful. You think the only way people will stay with Christ is if they don't know anything about other faiths? To start with I'm sure most people over 12 know there are such things as Jews and Muslims, besides which it's better to have a knowledge of other faiths to understand the differences between them and Christianity. If people are Christians they're not going to convert because of a game, unless they were totally unsecure in the first place. People like that are just waiting for an excuse to drop away. Also, the PR of your choice really gives ammunition to those who like to accuse us of their view of 'Fundamentalism' - ban violent films or anything which has reference to evlolution, other faiths or non-Christian spirituality. And by banning it to under 17s you're making them think thee's something illicit and 'cool' about these other faiths - giving them the status of something evil but also very powerful. For someone young that's a real turn-on! Don't schools teach about all the major faiths anyway, or books/TV at that level at least?

Sorry to seem harsh but you're bordering on legalism it seems to me, or at the very least inappropriate levels of 'protection' for young minds. Can't their parents decide? A one page synopsis of the theme of the game will tell them if they thing it's bad. A big 'warning: This game contains scenes of other faiths' notice is just laughable though

I can see your point. And it is a discussion that maybe we can carry into another thread.

Mr Ex Nihilo did say that he prayed about it and God led him to do that. Now if God says jump, I say "how high?". I will always do as God tells me, that way i don't step out of his covering for my life.

I was taught about Muslims, Jews, Islam at school by the age of 13, and it dodn't have an effect on me, i just saw how many flaws there were in other religions. But i must say, if i wasn't grounded in the word of God, then maybe i would have questioned my Faith in God, and may have led me to all different kinds of trouble, and that wouldn't have had to be necessary had i not have opened my mind to that junk.

Just some thoughts.

I'm sure many suicide bombers feel they are following God too! Judging by the huge range of (often contradictorary) behaviour exhibited by Christians we can't just accept that if someone says 'God told me to do this' He actually did. That's why the NT teaches us to bring our prophecies/words etc to the church to be tested and prayed oer before they're acted on. Not meaning to attack - more a general point here!

Sorry for trying to be responsible for my actions.

If you want to discuss this further, we can take it to another thread so that it doesn't frustrate people who are trying to do some really good work here for Christ.

I guess there is an attitude of making fun of Christianity in the UK. Because it's the 'state religion' people see a lot of it in the very orthodox, traditional sense which is pretty dull. By contrast other faiths are more foreign and therefore interesting, especially when they are tied into eastern cultures which are very interesting int their own right to westerners.
Very few people here know that Christianity really talks about miraculous healings, speaking in tongues etc. Otherwise more 'spiritual' people (interested in crystal healing and so on) would probably be interested; wheras in fact those ready to try any spiritual thing and mix them all together would dismiss Christianity as dull, when actually it has the exact things they want!

We are currently using the A6 engine at the moment. One of the levels was partly done in A5 it's just for coding purposes to use A6.

I doubt we will use an externel compiler, but who knows.

i'll get that email to you.

"Don't schools teach about all the major faiths anyway"

That is what I use to think, until I went to public school.

They teach you about muslims,butists, etc but barely mention judiasm (except for the holocaust) and basicly nothing about christianity.

I'm using the Extra edition. Depends what you want to do, if you want to code then you will also need the Extra edition, if you want to do levels then the Standard will be fine which is like 30

Hey i've been keeping myself updated on this part of the forum since June of this year, and i'm very interested in this game you guys are working on. I got a question tho; What time period is the game set in? I would love to lend my services. I can do concept art ( mostly medieval art and a bit of sci-fi), a bit of 3d modeling ( still working on the human body) and level design. Email me if you need me at Shadowdawnz@hotmail.com. I'll pray that God will bless the talents of each one of you and to the success of this game.

I have the hosting, just the website is rubbish and I hand coded it. I never get round to actually ever updating it, so i just need someone to design and develop a website and maintain it.

ArchAngel - Did you not recieve my email? I loved the pics, now including it into the design document, so that means... welcome aboard basicly!
The level took me about an hour to compile in the end! It looks superb.

Things we need now:

Web designer/developer
3d Artist/Modeller/Texturer etc etc

tho, I am glad to hear you like the sketches.
think you'd want some more? just of anything that comes to mind. a cool level design, some bad guys, more weapons (the ones you described) or... some crazy looking prop. maybe this will get me off wasting time that I don't really have.

or if you want, I could make a forum(temp, if you want) for the Last Disciple. probably the first would be better.

actually, I'll do the second anyways.

Hey thats great Crazyishone.

We do need level designers/developers still. We almost have the second level completed now. Some solid code starting to be written as well, so progress is good. There is only 3 of us working on this project at the moment, there has been interest though.

Send me an email, and let me know what you would like to do, and i can then add you to the DiscipleX Studios Forum.

I sent u that e-mail telling how i think i can help. Game shots look good. It'll be a great success. Life's like a story. That's why people love rpg's. They are about lives, which makes them great stories. If that story is one with Christian values, God knows what good things can happen.

Well the level designer would help with the design doc, think of obejectives draw a blue print of the level. The level developer would then use a world editor to create the levels like WorldCraft or something. They would then send it to us and we work on the code.

D_SIPL,
I can do level design for you. Tell me the basic objectives, and I'll design it...

Ok just needed to post an update.

We have 2 levels modeled to far. Things have been slow on my part the past month due to family and work commitments.

Can anyone make a website for us? Any Artists out there that can help?

D-SIPL,
I'm a little interested (I'm a coder and planning on heading to DigiPen next year), but I'm more interested in looking at your design doc and really trying to understand how one is put together. Would it be okay to get a copy of it?
Thanks,
Wacko

I can help a bit, but not with the web page, cos i'm not too good at that stuff... But i can do level modelling, animating and programming, and i think it'd be a cool thing, seeing what's been mentioned in this topic...
(Geez what a mouthful!)
Well, then... just answer...

Hey Conan thats great.

If you could send some sample work that you have done via email that would be great. I'll get back to you shortly.

Hey, great to see something like this happening! I'm not sure if I can be of much help yet, I'm majoring in computer programming and specifically in C++ but doubt I know enough to be any kind of a help yet. I'm not bad at setting up websites but probably not good enough for you, although a friend of mine, the administrator of http://GODisreliable.com could probably help you out. His yahoo id is GODisreliable. Websites I've setup are at http://jzyehoshua.8m.com and http://zambrano.bravehost.com.

If you need help with storylines I can probably offer about as much creative assistance as anyone and although I doubt it'll come up, I can write excellent poetry too, as an opening or whatever. All the stuff authored by jzyehoshua here is mine, use it if you want http://godisreliable.com/viewforum.php?f=9 The Freedom one took 1st for the state a few years back.

I'm also starting to dabble with the paintshop stuff thanks to that admin I told you about, but still am not that great. Let me know if I can be of service, even to just get the word out about this project. In a few months I might know enough about C++ to be of more help. Otherwise I'm not too familiar with much outside of QBasic.

Well, D-SIPL... never done any big stuff, and my computer got a virus bout 3 months ago, so most of the stuff i'd done before that are wiped out... (at least the modelling/animating part).
About the programming part, well... mostly games for my cousins and the like, until a month ago, when i started the Dynamic Coder thingy (i don't think i put it up in the showcase.. i'll add it to my to do list), writen in Blitz3D (wasn't in the mood for the long way, a.k.a. C++.
Oh well, that's about it...

Yeah, not too great a portfolio, .

Oh well,

It's lame when that happens. I had my hard drive go down about a year a go and lost a lot of stuff... not good.

Ok well maybe you want to make some 3d models, maybe a gun or something similar and email it to me. I'll check it out and get back to you.

Thanks Conan

jzyehoshua - We have someone who will be working on the site now. How long have you been programming in C++ for? You may still be able to help with some stuff.

I just finished a basic class in it, will be taking another this semester. They didn't teach us a thing about game creation in my class though so I doubt I'll be much help.

@jzyehoshua

Don't worry, C++ is easy (i've heard everyone that says this somehow crashes all his projects, tho...)

@D-SIPL

I'm, like, not too good at modelling as long as human body/modern weaponry is concerned, but i can do any type medieval weapon AND any kinda lvl, PLUS, i can program purdy well in C++, C, BlitzBasic, VBasic and, um..., that's it!

Going back just quickly to the convo from the end of page one...
even though I am doubtful about an age-limit for the sake of faith-security, I am fairly sure that if you put an age-limit on it, it will improve sales in a secular market place :-)

Looks good guys,

God bless,

Dan

Well maybe we could sell it in christian stores with no age restriction. Then sell it in secular stores as an 18

hi,
I'm interested in working on the project. I finished my MS in Computer Science in August & am now getting bored & restless searching for jobs (not a lot where I'm at involving graphics programming, I'm finding...). You can find out more about me & see some screenshots of my work at:
http://www.freewebs.com/graynod/thesis/index.html

Mostly I'm into C/C++, SDL, and OpenGL. I'd love to work on a 3D project. This one looks as if it's going great, kudos guys! Feel free to e-mail me (graynod@gmail.com) any info or questions.

May the Lord bless you and keep you, and the project as well.
