Ok, I'm at it again! Welcome to the Candy Wars thread (temporary project name)!
About three weeks ago I started this project, but it's coming along so well (and I could use that support) that I decided to post it.
In a (candied) nutshell, here's the game concept: Player's fly around in a wintery-sugary-happy wonderland in ships/hovercrafts made out of candy cane material. All weapons will be either candy or winter-themed (such as snow-flake blasters, etc.), but most will be candy. This isn't all there is to it, though.
The rounds will be short, because players will use money from kills to buy new weapons and upgrades between rounds. So, the general concept is fairly common, but the difference in this game is the the fun candy theme and the extra emphasis I plan to put on the shop and on the "techy-ness" of some of the weapons (see video: "Guided Candy"
The game already supports LAN connections, as well as split-screen mode. This will therefore be a game that people can buy and play right away, even if they have only one computer. Of course, player's will be able to enter an IP Address to connect over the internet.
I'm quite confident in how this project is going, and see no problems completing what I have in mind. I hope you all feel the same way. Thanks for reading!
