Earth No More
 
Apparently there is a preview in the new Game Informer for this game. Developed by an external studio under the supervision of 3d realms.

Quote:

Earth No More
Playstation3/Xbox 360/PC
Style:1 Player Action(Online Multiplayer)
Publisher:TBA
Developer:Recoil Gamers(run by the co-founder of remedy)/3d Realms
Release:2009

Story:
ENM opens in a small New England town recently quarantined due to a mysterious out break.Poison red Vines spread quickly,simultaneously strangling and terraforming the environment,not to mention mutating nearby plants and animal life.The Spore causing all this is not from space;they are actually trying to stay away from sci-fi cliches.The Spore is caused by man's ongoing and abusive tampering with nature her self.The Lead character happens to be at the ground zero along with four other characters that he will team up with along the way.The Primary thrust of gameplay surrounds the nucleus of the human interaction,which is the ensemble cast.Each character is fully realized,with their own back stories,personalities,motivations,and secrets.You will get to see real character growth.ENM will have no cutscenes,the game uses a conversation mechanic that will rival Mass Effect.Players will work alongside allies in a manner more along the lines of HL2 instead of Rainbow6,with everything to puzzle solving to attacks.In addition to the ability to play through the entire campaign via online co-op,ENM will allow players to jump into others games posing as an enemy(im guessing like The Crossing).Recoil and 3d Realms know they are talking about the game a little early,but it's all part of the plan.Also ENM runs on the UE3.

From the art and some of the other things they show it looks like a Fps with a lot of character interactions.They say its like Aliens,War of the Worlds,Terminator,28 Days later,and The Thing all put together.

Re: Earth No More, new 3d realms ip?
 
hm i'm wondering if this is the game that's gonna be revield around E3 or the one end of this year. Because Raphael van Lierop is working in Vancouver and Recoil Games is in Finnland :confused: time will tell

Kristian Joensen 06-17-2007 04:16 PM

Re: Earth No More, new 3d realms ip?
 
How is working in Vancouver with a Finnish company any different from working in Texas with a Finnish company ?

JobivanHiob 06-17-2007 04:20 PM

Re: Earth No More, new 3d realms ip?
 
ok, that's true....icq for teh win ;)

Kristian Joensen 06-17-2007 04:26 PM

Re: Earth No More, new 3d realms ip?
 
ICQ/AIM/Googletalk/MSN/Skype, etc aswell as email, snail mail(probably used VERY little) and visits from Vancouver to Finnland(I am assuming Helsinki) as well from visits from Finnland(again probably Helsinki) to Garland and/or Vancouver.

That helps alot. Especially considering that Raphael does nothing BUT work with 3rd party games. So he can travel alot more than George and probably even Scott. He hasn't got a company to run or anything like that.

Edit:

I forgot regular phones, mobile phones and texting in the above.

Edit2:

Also forgot about builds of the game being send via the internet.

Finland, with single N. They are located at Kamppi center, basically in the middle of Helsinki.

Sounds great so far.

Kristian Joensen 06-17-2007 05:05 PM

Re: Earth No More, new 3d realms ip?
 
Yeah, I am sorry. Stupid mistake. I apologize.

Re: Earth No More, new 3d realms ip?
 
No problem :) I just wonder might PELIT -magazine have some exclusive information on this title. Guess we'll see later on.

Re: Earth No More, new 3d realms ip?
 
The blurb that SyntaxN quotes is from supposedly from the newest Game Informer.

I kind of hoped I wouldn't see the 3DRealms logo again on any game boxes until DNF came out. :(

Kristian Joensen 06-17-2007 06:33 PM

Re: Earth No More, new 3d realms ip?
 
Nobody said you would or wouldn't. But one thing is for sure, when a gmae company start 3-4 games within a year while it as another big one coming been in development for several years, it is unavoidable that they will be hyping up to several games at the same time.

Heck, Raph even said as much with one announcement being in 4-6 weeks and another in 4-6 months.

Earth No More sounds like it will be awesome! :cool: Can't wait for more news on the game! It's interesting that the article says the game will run on UE3.

Re: Earth No More, new 3d realms ip?
 
I thought "Earth no more" would be the subtitle for Prey 2, but it looks I was wrong. One more game to make the wait for DNF more bearable. 2009, eh? I wonder if it will be Vista-only (I hope not...)

Re: Earth No More, new 3d realms ip?
 
I love the fact that it takes place in New England. Thats kinda cool.

When the first screenshot? at E3?

Kristian Joensen 06-18-2007 09:02 AM

Re: Earth No More, new 3d realms ip?
 
Well I wouldn't be surprised if this was shown at E3, but the very blurb that SyntaxN quotes in his OP says:

Quote:

I don't know really what that is supposed to mean.

Mr.Fibbles 06-18-2007 10:16 AM

Re: Earth No More, new 3d realms ip?
 
So it is U3E, should be interesting. And when DNF is released, you can compare how U3E compares to the Duke Engine.

The game concept sounds interesting; the MP aspect really sounds neat although the potential of all sorts of yelling and screaming is high:
Man, I keep getting pwnd by this dog; wtf?!!
**guy playing as dog: what a loser, I can't believe I killed him 25 times as a rabid infected dog**

... War of the Worlds, 28 Days later and The Thing all put together.

Those movies were exactly what the descriptions reminded me of. Also,
"The Spore is caused by man's ongoing and abusive tampering with nature her self." was like an episode of the X-Files.

That logo looks SO retro Arcade.
Pretty contradicting for a studio that'll develop cinegames.
Maybe it's a statement. :p

Don't forget when you overthink things and look for meaning in items that isn't actually there. :)

War of the Worlds in game format? Sign me up!

Gryph 06-18-2007 11:41 AM

Re: Earth No More - New 3DR IP
 
Very interesting indeed. I like the premise of the game and the type of gameplay it could present. And it's cool that they're working with some ex-Remedy dudes so I can expect fun gameplay. :D

Damien_Azreal 06-18-2007 11:56 AM

Re: Earth No More - New 3DR IP
 
Nice, a new 3DR game.

This is the news I needed today, now I'm happy.

Cool stuff. :)

Re: Earth No More - New 3DR IP
 
That sounds great. Especially the "massive character interaction" bit. :love:

Kristian Joensen 06-18-2007 12:13 PM

Re: Earth No More - New 3DR IP
 
It seems Duke4.net has catched on to this :p

Re: Earth No More - New 3DR IP
 
Now we're going to know FOR REAL what a team based game is about , yeah!

Nihilanth 06-18-2007 12:17 PM

Re: Earth No More - New 3DR IP
 
I'm gonna keep an eye on this one.

ADM 06-18-2007 12:25 PM

Re: Earth No More - New 3DR IP
 
Was kind of suprised that the team 3DR were working with was Recoil, but very cool indeed.

Game looks interesting, will have to keep a close eye on it as it progresses.

Awesome stuff. Good for 3DR :woot:

Parkar 06-18-2007 01:01 PM

Re: Earth No More - New 3DR IP
 
3D Realms + ex remedy guys + coop = SWEET! Not to mention the game sounds interesting as hell on it's own.

KaiserSoze 06-18-2007 01:02 PM

Re: Earth No More - New 3DR IP
 
Can't wait to see the screenshots!

Sounds pretty unique as well.
