Amiga Events : Epiar: space action/trading game for AOS4
Posted by kas1e on 2010/11/20 14:58:36 (2856 reads) News by the same author
Amiga Events

Epiar is an open source, open-ended space action/trading game.

Starting from the version 0.4.2 will be released for amigaos4 as well, and will be distributed from the official site. While main site is not yet updated, you can already grab current/last version from os4depot (in upload query for now) and have some fun.

Few screenshots of editor-mode:

In game:

Video of game in action on peg2/1ghz/radeon9250/aos4.1u2 on youtube (fullscreen & win modes): here

The game are opengl/c++/lua/xml based, so, because of our not so good graphics subsytem and all that warp3d/minigl problems, you can't expect too much FPS on a weak machines, and, better choice as usuall for all new, modern and normal games : fast enough cpu (1ghz and more), latest aos4 with all the latest updates, and latest version of minigl.

Game compiled staticaly, to avoid sobj-hell, so all what you need its download, unpack and run by dbl-click from icon.

If you want more options (like disable audio, run editor-mode), you can play with binary in the shell, and all available commands will be show when you will do "epiar.exe -h".

Control of the game are:

SPACE - Fire the weapon that you currently have armed. If nothing happens then you might be out of ammo or not have a weapon attached.
TAB - Cycle through all the nearby Ships.
t - Target the closest ship.
SHIFT - Cycle through your different Weapons.
P - Pause or Un-Pause the game.
m - Display a map of the entire universe.
M - Display a map of the current Quadrant.
i - Display player information.
l - Land on a planet.
w - Watch your target.
q - Quit watching your target.

For choice resolution / win / full-screen modes, change manually Resources/Defenitions/options.xml file , bettwen tags "video" (almost at top of file).

Check the main epiar.net site for more info about game.

Enjoy !

ps. if some of you want to write "good work" or kind even without trying the game, plz, try it for first , maybe that will be not what you expect from :)

Nice work kas1e, feel free to sign up and upload some screenshots to wiki.amigaos.net.

I can only really make use of the first two screenshots showing the editor, I realise it is set in space and everything, but is it possible to zoom into any of the spaceships so that there is less black 'space' in the in-game screenshots?

Thanks in advance.
