First, a very quick and crude mock up of the logo (still needs work):
Smash is a free, open-source, closed distribution First Person Shooter featuring gameplay inspired by classics such as Doom, Duke3d, and of course Quake. It will feature a full singleplayer, and multiplayer experience.
The Player - You of course. Trapped in the locker room of fate, take up the Gauntlets of the Hero and crush General Ryan Lathotep's plan (and his nuts) to destroy reality itself!
The Resistance - The remaining unconverted survivors of the TimeQuake that transported Vista City and it's immediate surroundings into the Deserts of Limbo.
General Ryan Lathotep - The source of all evil. Nobody knows where he came from, what they DO
know is that his unnatural charisma allowed him to bewitch the leaders into giving him control of the military, where he built and detonated the prototype TimeQuake device beneath Vista City. Rumors indicate that he plans to destroy reality itself in order to effect a return of the "Old Ones"...
The Thrall - The General's minions, onetime humans that fell to his charisma. Autopsy of killed members reveals rampant mutation and tissue necrosis beneath the armor and breathing apparatus. Beware late term Thrall, for they sport bizzare cybernetic enhancements...
The Illithids - Brain-eating, Psy-masters of biomechanical and genetically engineered monstrosities.
The Denizens - Horrific monstrosities that patrol the Desert of Limbo...
Three Timed Powerups.
An assortment of awesome equipment.
The Desert of Limbo - A maddening desert on the edge of reality populated by extremely tough and hostile lifeforms.
Vista City - What remains of the city after the General detonated the TimeQuake Device and attacked it with his army of darkness. Normal, if somewhat damaged buildings and a functional underground system of sewers, subways, and research base remnants.
Lake Vista - Featuring a really nice mountain (of madness), a hydroelectric dam, and god knows what else that lives - or sleeps - now dreaming below the dark reaches of the lake...
Ruins - Forgotten remnants of lost civilizations that ended up getting sucked into the Desert of Limbo...Some still remain on the surface, others lie beneath the desert...
More to come later....
