Project: Soldiers into The World!

                       "A D-Soldier is never alone...."  -Achim

Project Soldiers into The World! is a remake on a long lost demo of mine, now with properly added storyline, maps, battles and whatnot,In a way this project already existed before.... as 2 complete different games, [Project A.D.I.O.L] and [Project SITW!]

the first one was overall lacking polish (those were my newbie days) and the second one I managed to post a demo oncebut got very outdated... as I was about to publish it's continuation my old laptop's hard drive got trashed beyond recoveryand forced me to start from scratch...

therefore I believe this re-make in a way deserves a second chance to finally showit's potential to become a full fledged RPGXP game project.

In the local Milky-May galaxy, a group of scientists and researchers known as the D-Soldiers, are on the task to create a fully accurateencyclopedia related to the Milky-Way's vast contents... as the research is about to be completed a series of attacks to the scoutingsoldiers has left the main D-Soldier's Research Team short on numbers.

after an arduous 3 year VR simulation training a young D-Soldier recruit by the name of Sesilou is about to embark on a journey across time and space in order to complete the D-Soldier's task, 

-Will he survive the mysterious assassin's onslaught?

-Will he discover the truth behind the twisted turn of events?  

-What lurks behind the ambition of the D-Soldiers?

This plays pretty much like any final fantasy game, as a D-Solder you move about the many places where your superiors send you to scout for data, as you go discovering more samples to complete the encyclopedia the more obstacles will bar your way towards both completing your goals and getting out alive, and if that wasn't enough fate itself seems to want you out of the picture.... PERMANENTLY, fail to reach your goals in time and prepare to say farewell to your very existence.

From the dangers of the outskirts

To the hidden depths of "innocent" cities

That encyclopedia isn't gonna write itself soldier ;D

BEWARE, THE BALANCE COUNTER...

As you you progress through the biospheres assigned you will notice a counter that measures 2 opposing forces, the counter drives the paths to take in one area and depending on it's status you are to perform either as a good guy or a bad guy, sometimes a good tacting is to think outside the box.

Here's a concept pic of the counter so far:

This is still a WIP in all the senses of the word however there's some cool stuff to showcase so far:

Well-detailed maps to go around.

As you progress through your career as a D-Soldier, more and more VR simulations will become available. try them out for some rewards.

This is STILL a WIP ;D

Yes it's not done yet,

But I believe this should suffice to prove I truly want to make this game a reality, the path is long, the obstacles are manyhowever I'll do as much as it takes to provide both quality and quantity.... that said, a demo IS on the works, it is planned to contain 2 chapters and an unlockable side-quest VR mission, hold on tight everyone this should get interesting VERY soon!

btw credits are not yet added because as the demo is being made some scripts or evented systems might come in or drop out,the thing is, this is still on production and not possible to tell when the whole thing will be done, expect the demo soon (hopefully)until then, stay tuned!


The project still lives!

Looking very good, RAV!  The balance counter concept is very intriguing, as is the holographic rooms.  Reminds me a little bit of the holodeck from Star Trek: Next Generation (a show which I absolutely love, btw).  I can't wait for the demo!

Let me know if there is anything I can help you with on this project.  I'd love to help you out where I can.

It looks good. Glad to see you're still making progress with this Sesilou character of yours.

I got the main story plot 100% done, however I need to brainstorm secondary plots, sidequests etc...

I can upload the core plot (or talk about it on the IRC if you'd like to)

If you could upload the plot somewhere, I'd love to take a gander at it.  Developing side quests is probably my favorite part!  I would be happy to help you with that Laugh

well actually I have the pre-game (before Adiol & SITW) as a word document, basically the background events before even Sesi & Co were introduced, the thing is, I planned on adding these documents as part of the game manual (as a lore-book) so players wouldn't be so confused when starting.

it's got some relevant spoilers to the plot, so read considering it's contents could spoil some of the content further on.

I've got it downloaded.  Glad to have some reading material this weekend while my 2-year-old and I battle it out in round 5 this week...
