Hey guys! If you have been following the blog for a while now, you probably know that I have been spending quite a bit of my time lately coding blueprints in UE4. Recently that has been mostly for the PvP arena version of FUTURETECH. Quickly though on that note, I have not chosen to change the current iteration of FSCA to a multiplayer game. It is absolutely staying first and foremost a single-player campaign. The PvP arena that I have been working on has been to help me to develop the particular coding that I will need to implement the “special aspects” of the single-player AI combat mechanics. More on that later in the year (when I don’t have to be so “hush hush” about the details).
So, getting back to the subject matter at hand. Did you know that we have not only been developing two specific games (well, three actually if you count the PvP arena) set within the LEGACY franchise, but are also in the process of writing a series of novels set within that universe as well?! They are going to be the “prequel” of sorts that lead up to the events in FUTURETECH and LEGACY.
The switching gears I refer to in the title of this post refers to my putting the coding in UE4 aside for the moment to focus on proofreading the first draft of the entry novel in this series, which is now very close to completion. Clocking in at nearly 300 pages so far, with four chapters left to be written, it’s quite a substantial chunk of LEGACY lore! Our resident writer, Summer, has been working on this project for several years now. Her writing is absolutely fantastic…especially with how she is bringing the main characters in the story to life! I can’t wait for you guys to be able to get a hold of the book! I am looking at our options for self-publication too. I hope that we might be able to monetize the project to help with the funding of the game projects they are tied to.
Anyways, I wanted to get you guys up to speed on where we are. Thank you again for following along with our development journey. I look forward to sharing more with you very soon!
