The FPS game with a medieval twist
This game is a medieval first-person shooter designed for PC and mobile. The reason why I chose to make the game available on these platforms is because of the ease of access that they bring. Most people are likely to have a computer or laptop as well as a mobile device which allows the game to have greater availability. They are likely to be more familiar with how to use those devices as well because they are very common.
PC- For the pc I planned for gamers to use the mouse or track pad to move the main character’s line of sight. They would also use the arrow keys for moving from place to place. To use the equipped weapon, they would have to click on their target to fire an arrow. Talking to NPC’s would require clicking on them with the mouse. The controls are very simple and easy to learn for all ages.
Mobile- For mobile phones and tablets the gamer would have to use their hands to drag across the screen to adjust their line of sight. They would tap to where they would like to go and press the screen for approximately 2 seconds to fire their weapon. Talking to NPC’s would require tapping them as well.
- Engaging story
- Various fortresses to explore
- Upgrades to equipment
After an ordinary night falling asleep, you wake up the next day inside what looks like a castle in the medieval ages. After frantically trying to figure out how you got there you find out that you’ve been tasked with infiltrating various enemy fortresses to sabotage and steal their resources. You have experience using the bow and arrow but nothing else. Soon afterwards you leave the castle and you ask the townspeople if they’ve ever seen you before and who you are. They tell you that you’ve always been an archer for the kingdom and question if you’re feeling alright. You decide that they won’t be much help and you go elsewhere to find answers. You begin to start your mission to infiltrate the next fortress you’re tasked to and travel to the next kingdom. After completing the mission, you go back to your kingdom to obtain your next task. Throughout completing more missions, you gather clues from the kingdoms you traveled to by talking to the people there. You ask questions about why the kingdoms are supposedly at war with each other. You find out that one kingdom had mysteriously attacked a rival kingdom not far long ago while in a period of peace. Then put the blame on another kingdom for informing them incorrectly of a plot planned against them. This brought uncertainty and tension between the kingdoms and ever since then resources have dwindled because of untrustworthiness, and a lot of looting and destruction began between kingdoms. After going to all the tasked kingdoms, you have now discovered that the one who brought you to this world was the king and he had summoned you there because of the previous archer disobeying his orders. The previous archer had discovered that the king was behind all the current conflict and had been controlling you to further his own greed as you are the most skilled archer. Soon after you discover this he attempts to perform the same ritual to summon another person and banish you, but you halt his plans and defeat him in time. Afterwards you are magically returned to where you came from and the game is over.
Throughout the game you will be trying to discover who or what brought you into this game and for what purpose. Through talking to NPC’s, you will gain clues to why you must perform these missions and why there is conflict between the kingdoms.
Explore enemy fortresses while stealthily picking off enemies that come your way. Gain levels as you progress fortress by fortress while picking up valuable loot to upgrade your equipment. Stay alive while helping your kingdom gain the upper-hand over neighboring kingdoms.
While inside an enemy kingdom you will have to explore undetected by the soldiers to find resources to either take or destroy. When in contact with a soldier though you must defeat him using your weapon without alerting others as best you can.
The main character is customizable in the beginning scenes to your liking.
Sample weapons include:
-Slaying bow: Might(Mt). 14. Special ability: Increases firing rate and accuracy.
-Steel bow: Mt.18. Sturdy and strong bow.
-Advanced crossbow- Mt. 12. Easy and fast to initiate with while also light weight.
To obtain new weapons the character will have to discover hidden chests throughout exploring and open them. There is no need for a key however, so the only difficult part will be to find the chests.
Compete real-time online against archers of different kingdoms to see who successfully infiltrates and destroys the opposing kingdom’s resources first. Currently only one mode called assault.
In this section there will be a total of 2 people facing each other each round. The only maps that will be used are the kingdoms of each person but the other would be spawned in the others. These matches will be to obtain more resources for your own kingdom and increase your prestige. The more times you successfully invade and destroy/loot resources the harder the opponents get as in the more advanced the opposing kingdom is. There will be a leaderboard as well to see your progress. There are 2 modes where you will be able to battle against a friend for a friendly match where no resources are affected so no abuse of resources occurs and one where you search online for opponents to increase your prestige score. There will be rewards for placement every end of the week so the higher your score the better your rewards are such as new and advanced weapons.
