As we approach the next funding goal, I've been doing some work under the hood and making some plans for some more features and additions.  There are also a couple of notifications and reminders for the community that I'll touch on at the end of this post.

Spring

Arachnomania

Hi everyone,

prepare your mind to see something awful. Not the game I'm going to present of course, but my english. (I'm french) 8)

A friend of mine is working on this game for years. But he's too shy to give a sign of life on the forum. So I'm doing it for him. In fact, he doesn't really know I'm doing it, but I don't need his agreement. :twisted: Don't worry, I'm sure it would make him happy to see people talk about his game, and maybe play it ?

The game is currently called "Arachnomania", but we think about changing it. Arachnomania got a lot of different graphical version through the years. Some ugly, some not. And he just started to work on a new one, from scratch as always, with a new method to make models. Don't ask me, I know nothing (like Jon Snow) about graphic designer, I'm a programmer. :mrgreen:

Here is some screens to show you the graphical evolution :

The oldest screen I got :

4 other versions with the same unit on the picture :

The game have currently 2 factions (the third will come after these 2 are balance) : The Swarm, and The Extended (the third is the Omega..).


Here is some screens of the current version :

The Swarm just got a little rework on their models few weeks ago. I believe the Extended will follow soon.

The "doc" you can look through to make you an idea of the game (all the pictures are not up to date yet):

You can find quite all the info you need in it.


Be cool about his work, he's just a student, and absolutely not in this domain of work. And if you wanna know, he actually screwed-up his studies. So, he's not really student, he's trying to be one :mrgreen: . So this is his hobby.

So now, I need feedback. Tell me what do you think about it. If you tried it, if you liked it or not. If you have some advise for him.
And some encouragement would be gladly appreciated.
