Starfox: Event Horizon

Well... the first level is just about ready:

 

"

 

If anyone would like to voice James, Peppy, Pigma, Andross, or General Pepper let me know.

 

It's not looking too bad but it needs a bit of polishing.

  • The cut-scene translations from gameplay seem janky. I know Freespace 1 nor 2 had in game cut scenes, and  including them now is probably new territory, but it needs some polish. Wouldn't it be easier to make some sort of fade into a new scene, rather then have the game reorient the craft like that?
  • The Peppy Warp sequence just went on for way too long and approached comical levels with how much fire he was taking. Is it even possible to fail that part and have Peppy blow up from enemy fire, because from the looks of it you could just sit back, let the enemy fighters wail on him, and it would still progress. I hope there's a plan to maybe fix that or make it a bit more of an actual challenge.
  • The combat seems slow, even slower than Freespace combat. I feel like that's because it's in 3rd person rather than cockpit view, but it feels like the 3rd person view's field of vision is way too wide and is contributing to that slowness. If there's a way to limit the FOV maybe try it out and see how the visual speed of combat changes?

Some random gameplay stuff, a Launch Bay Sequence and two levels above the surface of Sauria:

I'm not too sure what you mean by this, the game fades out to black and back in for cinematics in the video as you describe.

Oh I see, so levels will take place during/inbetween the different games then?

Wow, that's shaping up better and better evey time I look at it.

By the way, what's the situation on the voice acting?

Oh wow, that's a great job you've done there. :yes:

By the way, who's the voice actor for James? I quite like how he voiced him.

After playing the first playable demo, it was good. I liked it, but it suffered some performance issues, and constant crashing's. Once I got to try out the second demo, I was pleasantly surprised, a lot of the performance issues and crashing's have been fixed. While some of it is more or less the same content, they're new missions which I enjoyed. And I do like the the voice actor for James (you have to go to the tutorial mode to hear his voice). I don't know if I wasn't paying attention in the first demo or not, but now I do notice some graphical differences, like the Cerinian Battle Mech now has a bit of a shine. I've also noticed that ships have a regeneration system which is a nice touch, since you do not have counter measures in this game so far, it may be needed since some of the battles are insanely large and fire is coming from all angles. While the performance is nice, some of the missions are a bit buggy, at least on my rig.As soon as I move the ship, it would instant crash. I've only noticed this on two missions so far, but I could have been unlucky. The soundtracks are great so far, and I really like the one from Randorn's theme in the reveal trailer. 

 

I hope to see the finish product later on this year, or at the very least another demo.

There's been a lot of downtime waiting for the script to be finalized. I figure while I'm waiting I'll up the poly count on some of the older models. First up I've redone Fox:

The hype trailer for this seems unbelievably edgy. 

Not particularly looking forward to the story or characters. The character designs also use too many dark outlines, and consequently everyone looks tired or unhappy.

 

Gameplay looks okay. Music is meh.

I'll try the demo out but this isn't looking promising to me.

 

Impressive work nonetheless, as this all takes a hell of a lot to make and clearly has effort put into it.

It was probably a really poor choice of the music for the trailer, I'd not say the game takes itself that seriously.

Not sure I get what you mean by dark outlines, there's no cell shading or anything like that, just smooth dynamic shadows. How can Fox be unhappy up there with that smile anyway?  ;)

Hey, remember you were asking a    while back for voice actors? Well, now that I've got my new headset, I took the liberty of
recording Andross' lines in the first level. Have a listen and tell me what you think; the link's below:

Thank you for sending in some voice samples, and I apologize for not responding sooner. I don't frequent these forums that often. Your voice might be able to work out for a Sharpclaw or something of that nature.

Sounds good. Just tell me when you need me to do some lines.

Well here it is, a new trailer and a new version of Event Horizon. 

 

I received a lot of negative feedback from the first Hype Trailer I released almost a year ago, so I took a lot of the critique to heart when putting this one together. Hopefully the cheesy cornball quota is met this time around.

Featuring Jane Callum as the voice of the Narrator and Fox McCloud, as well as "Days are Forgotten" by Kasabian.

You can download the newest version of the game here: http://www.moddb.com/mods/star-fox-event-horizon/downloads/star-fox-event-horizon-third-demo

Great! Lookin' forward to playing it! :D

Oh, by the way, I forgot the mention: In the second version of the demo, during the Pigma's Revenge mission, there was a bug that would prevent the intermission sequence of James and Peppy flying to Andross' ship. If you were locked onto anything else than the ship, you would fly to your locked-on target and not Andross' ship, preventing the intermission sequence (And the rest of the mission) from playing.

Are you planning to have the game open-source? I sorta want to have my OC, Kamil in this.

Well, an often requested enemy on my website makes their return to Star Fox:

​Thank you for pointing that out, I'll try and fix it in the next release.

​Freespace Open (the engine the game is made in) is Open source and all my assets come with the download of the game.
