Hi everyone, I'm SLYvester_lOCC. I'm here to announce my project that I been working on.
The name of project is The Street, the game is based on a young man who tries to save himself from "ghetto" because he is tired from poverty and being threatened with his life. I didn't started to write a storyline yet -but when I do, I guess it'll progressively evolve into a very epic one- but I assume that will not be much crime-driven like Grand Theft Auto, rather circulate around "mystery" a bit. I'm planning an advanced and interactive gameplay; you can work, spend, buy properties, date, use objects, do sports...
Currently the game is in version alpha 0.1.6 and has nothing much. I might publish some early access releases there.
VERSION AS THIS REPLY WRITTEN: ALPHA 0.1.9
Player gets "betrayed" by his own father, which he learns after reading the note that he left. He can go and work ($5/hr), visit park, see an alone gangster and some members of Westline Park Ballaz playing basketball, as well as a neighbour who lost her husband in a gang war which involved a Sicilian mafia called Scirocco (namely insipred from Sindacco Families from GTA series), and buy a snack from a market called The Little M as well as eat it. The game also includes a hour/day system, which only works when working; eventually player can sleep after a specific hour. Player has a "respect" attribute which remains dormant for now.
VERSION AS THIS REPLY WRITTEN: ALPHA 0.2.3 (WRITTEN AFTER A LONG HIATUS)
Player can join to the hood! If he reads note and then tells it to gangster in the park, they both advance to the hood; even player meets with another gangster and they can play dice together! The purchase system is also fixed.
Stay tuned, more will come.
VERSION AS THIS REPLY WRITTEN: ALPHA 0.2.15
By alpha 0.2.15 game gets some major upgrades and additions.
The most important upgrade the game got is missions, player can do 2 missions and gain some respect. But to do them you have to talk with the single gangster in the hood, then find the gang there and win a dice game.
Player can buy snack, beer and chicken from the market in Street.
Player can equip a bat, which is first weapon within the game.
Also added some secrets to the game.
ANNOUNCEMENT: A public release may come within a week.
