Decaying Earth is a project made using the Unity 3D game engine. You are located in a post-apocalyptic world where the dead have come back from the grave in the form of zombies. You will have to fend for yourself on this Decaying Earth. You will find many items throughout the map to aid your chances of survival, from food and water, to weaponary to fight off the undead. However, the undead are not your only enemy within this game, you also have to survive against the elements themselves and wild animals. To futhur make your task harder, once the multi-player update is released, you will also have to compete against other survivours to gather supplies and weapons. This makes for a far more intense experience for the game as it will mean either gunning it on your own, or forming a group to help each other overcome the odds and survive for as long as you possibly can, just be cautious when trusting others, as this game is an open world player VS player (PVP) game throughout.
Any funding that is given to the Decaying Earth project will be used to improve the game in general, it will also be used to help a quicker release to the multiplayer update.
Other items that will be enhanced with the funding received will be :
- Improvements to the models.
- Improvements to the animations.
- Improvements to the environmental graphics.
- The ability to add more effective items to the game such as vechiles at a later stage.
The progress made so far has been remarkable, over the period of just eleven days we have gone from nothing but an idea in our heads, to having a functioning health system, an environment which you are able to climb, walk, swim and even lose health from falling. We have also added a hunger and thirst system which upon those items reaching 0 you will begin to lose health, this can be prevented by collecting and using the food and drink items placed within the game. We have also placed melee weapons within the game which can also be collected, we have plans to introduce guns into the game at a later stage, but for now we feel the melee weapons will work fine as the original release of the Alpha stages will only be single player. You can see all of this progress in the videos we have posted on our youtube channel which can be found here.
The current build we are working on will be released on PC while we work on the Alpha Stages of the game, however, once we reach a certain point in the build of the game, we are hoping to release the BETA stages on console too, just to allow for a wider range of gamers to be able to experience what Decaying Earth has to offer.
Helping a project such as this does not always require that you put money into it to help it become a success. There are many ways to help without having to spend money. You could tell your friends and family about it, you can purchase the game once it is released. Add details about the project on social media, blogs or websites. The list of ways to help a project out is rather large so I won't list them all here, yet not all of them involve you spending money.
Thank you for taking the time to read through this , by doing so you have already helped by letting us give you information about our project.
