A First Person Shooter in Spherical Geometry

A First Person Shooter in Spherical Geometry | Mobile Games Observatory & Reviews | Scoop.it

  FPS (First Person Shooter) have become very popular and never ceased to improve since twenty years. They propose players to explore worlds in three dimensions, in a very simple and intuitive way. In this constantly renewed kind of game, using the same rules and codes, original variations sometimes appear:
  In "Earths Of Alioth", a game for Android and Apple phones and tablets released in 2014, Space has become Spherical: the notion of high and low is completely gone: and for good reason, we are on satellites orbiting distant exoplanets in a fairly realistic space environment. However, most FPS rules are present. Only the movement mode changes: You must jump from satellite to satellite, pursuing drones, also in orbit. The issue of space management, essential for the player, is thereby upset: How to move toward or away from another point of space? How to find the shortest path from one point to another by jumping on the satellites, themselves in movements? These issues are more likely common to a Space Agency, but they find immediate intuitive responses in the game.

  According to the developers of "Earths Of Alioth" these intuitions are natural because there are links between two-dimensional geometry, three-dimensional, and spherical geometry, the latter sharing mathematical properties with the previous two.
  Video games have experienced a two-dimensional era, then a three-dimensional, it makes sense that more "Spherical Games" make their appearances.  Today's Haptic screens and tablets fit that perfectly.
"Earths Of Alioth" is available on iTunes App Store, Google Play, and App-Shop Amazon, with a Free and a Full version.

DAVID CAGE: "THE FUTURE OF GAMING IS IN THE HANDS OF INDEPENDENT"

71.2% of French play video games, says a study for the National Film Centre (CNC), for a turnover of 2.7 billion euros. In total, France, 5,000 people work in this sector, which is facing a brain drain to foreign countries, led by Canada.

"The game is the first cultural industry in the world, and France must pull out of the game," he told Frédérique Bredin, president of CNC, during a roundtable on Tuesday 18th November.

To address this issue, David Cage, founder and director of Quantic Dream studio based in Montreuil says having "immense faith in independent creators, especially young French who leave school." One year after having released "Beyond: Two Souls"video game starring actors Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe , David Cage looks at the video game industry, especially in France. Interview:

With an annual turnover of 2.7 billion euros and 34 million players in France, what is your view on the market for video games today?

- The game is in a rather fascinating period. It diversifies, it democratizes, more and more people are playing different games on different platforms. The arrival of the Wii and now smartphones and tablets makes the game accessible to a much wider audience, while the public aware of players on console and PC continues to widen. The landscape will continue to diversify with systems like the Oculus Rift or Morpheus that allow a total immersion in a 3D world.

We can also now play all prices, with free oversupply, games a few euros to more complex games to 70 euros. It's still a market largely dominated by action games and those called "casual" [to audiences uninitiated, like "Candy Crush", Ed], although some titles show that games can also be poetic, moving, or have a real purpose.

Jan X Patam's insight:

"The game is the first cultural industry in the world, and France must pull out of the game,"...

Cage says having "an immense faith in independent creators, especially young French who leave school.". :)

Earths Of Alioth, a Mobile Game with Free Software inside !

Earths Of Alioth, a Mobile Game with Free Software inside ! | Mobile Games Observatory & Reviews | Scoop.it

"Earth of Alioth" is an Arcade Game available since April 2014 both on Google Play Store and iTunes App Store, with a particularity: It was entirely developed with Free Software tools.

Developed by a little independent studio (Chloroptera Fx), Earths Of Alioth is a 3D first person Shooter in space with a brand new navigation mode adapted for tablets and phones.  We have tested it for some hours, the game is pleasant and the difficulty is progressive.
The graphics looks impressive. The developers said they worked under Ubuntu and used CodeBlocks, Eclipse and OpenGL for developing, Gimp and Blender for the Graphics, Inkscape for the interfaces, and more surprisingly: Milkytracker and Audacity for the music ! There will also be a Raspberry Pi release in july. Chloroptera Fx even claims that parts of their framework will be released under LGPL licences.
Such development configuration remains rare in game development, but "Earths Of Alioth" proves Free Software doesn't prevent quality.
