A brand new game
for Windows, Linux, Mac, HTML5, 3DS Homebrew and more
10th September, 2007
I'm currently working on a nice shooter game. A "take it in turns to kill each other" type blaster.
Like Scorched Earth..
Or, if you prefered the Amiga version, like I did, Scorched Tanks.
Anyway, this game isn't exactly like either of those!
Imagine the tanks being UFO's, and they're floating in space, with a bunch of randomly sized planets between them.
They fire shots, and the weapons float about in space, being pushed and pulled by various gravitational forces, until they either float away, hit a planet, or hit a player.. (sometimes that could even be yourself!)
I've been working on this game for a couple of days, now, and it seems to be coming together quite nicely.
For it's title theme, I decided to take the original theme from Scorched Tanks. A tune by Sidewinder, named Horizon's Edge.
I spent most of today working on a nice new rearrangement of the theme, and figured I'd let you hear the tune as it currently stands.
Horizon's Edge : Beta!
The mix will probably be tweaked, here and there, between now and the game's release (I'll probably tighten up the start, and neaten the end a little, and do a few little twiddly bits in the middle) but, all in all, it's pretty much what I wanted out of it.
And.. Credit goes to Sidewinder for his amazing 30Kb, 4 channel original version!
