Go Nuts Competition Entry - The Running Van
« on: September 11, 2020, 05:59:28 PM »
The running man but with cars. Collect cash every 5 seconds you survive,  keep fuel topped up,  pickup loot and get big bonuses for taking down a stalker. The more you make, the easier your family will have it when your pan-breed [how about Van Breed for a title  :))]

I might add some powerups that float in like the sponsor capsules in Hunger Games. No weapons though.

I decided to create all the stalkers based on the Vanarchy van so I need a Van related title to complete the trilogy. Ideas welcome?

All the vehicles will roll and pitch when driving and I might add in some jumps if I can figure out how best to do it with the chasing AI.
There will be big rocks and stone structures to impede you and different handling on different terrain (Road, mud, water and salt plane).

Also, went with a black outline this time for a more cartoony look.  Some of the stalkers and some loot/obstacles below. Special bonus to those who can name the objects!  ;D

I'm not sure about the black outlines...Maybe a dark grey to make it a bit more subtle?

It'll be an option  :))

Think you've actually really got a title already, Steve. It's a game based on "The Running Man"

"The Running Van" might work ;)

I don't get the pan-breed comment, though. Am I missing something?

Staring me right in the face! Pan-breed is a type of bread and also a slang term for dead or deed as we call it in Scotland.  :D

Get that rift from the main theme into any music you put into the game - the 5 note and 9 note sections. Anyone who's seen the film will dig that.

As for the game, how about some ground hazards such as mines and quicksand. Also those beacons from the film where your head, or roof in this case, get blown off?

I wanted to complete the trilogy so kind of. In terms of the name, technically the Vans are chasing you and your driving a Pickup but hey-ho  ;D

Built a Stadium and some obstacles for the arena, some new, some stolen and refactored from Gunstar.  :D

I should be able to balance some of the stones ontop of each other for more variety in rock formations.

Still not sure about how I'll do ramps, mainly how to show a vehicle on top and possibly some behind or in front, and only being able to enter it from one direction. May or May not make it in. Piss easy in 3d but in 2d quite tricky.

Might need to redesign the trees, not 100% happy with them.

Added a wee turd with flies buzzing around -  a powerdown borrowed from Polymaniacs  ;D

It's amazing how you get the shapes to read so well at low resolutions.
I would say that stuff that isn't a vehicle have a less visible outline

Working on basic background rock formations. More detail required but OK start. The Stalkers now give chase.

Height map is now in, a little bit of gravity as you drop down a level and a bit of a hop as you move up so kinda bounces subtlety as you drive.
