What do you want to see in the new game?

Postby ZEUS_GB » Fri Dec 15, 2006 3:57 pm

What do you want to see in the new game?
(I couldn't really create a poll for this because there wouldn't be enough poll options).

I would like to see some classic powerups. Not more weapon powerups like in the original but more like the powerups you get in old school scrolling shooters. Things like invincibility, shield, increased damaged, a smartbomb to kill everything on the screen at once and maybe even a robot helper type thing to help you out in difficult areas.

I would also like to see bigger levels and a lot more of them.

What do people think of my idea? Rubbish or just plain insane?

Powerup would be fun. :)
I would like to see some marines using pulse rifle or some other weapons than pistol they could also follow you and help to kill aliens (with pistol they aren't wery good at it). Another thing is that you could use those armor suits found on emicron research base. :D

I completely forgot about those.
Being able to use the suits would be a great idea! 8)

I don't know if this is something that could be done with the new game or a later game but traveling to different planets maybe??

Just though of another thing.
A minimap that you can have on the screen while playing.

That would be good idea :D it could be on the motion tracker. Perhaps you would need to do an upgrade to get it.

Another thought would be a level or a few levels where you either get to drive the APC or use it's gun turret.

Is this actually a new game, or an expansion? Or perhaps an episode? :wink:

It's somewhere between a new game and an expansion. We call it a spin-off. It will all make a bit more sense next month with the official announcement. To put it simply, it's more Shadowgrounds with some great additions. :)

Can we get at least one static screenshot? If it was a Quicktime movie I could "copy and paste" an image out of it, but I don't know how (or if I can) with Windows Media Player.

It's easier to run around other message boards spreading some good buzz about this if we have at least one actual screeny to show.

When you freeze-frame the new character taking his "head shot" on the alien, THAT would be a great promotional shot for the new "spin off" game. :)

In reply to your <Shadowgrounds 2 Trailer>

Anyone could become the hero, climbing onto a big aliens neck áka Rambo and brutally giving it a death shot in the neck.
But I might add, I didn't walk through the original seven and a half times to be happy that it's concept is renewed.

It looks impossible to like this new game. Where did you pick up the guys who create story concept for SG2, because we agreed that the alien invasion was a well-intentioned attempt to put evolution to a good end by sending us the ultimate achievement, an endless powersource? Which we should see to be abused by our own military for it's down and dirty machinations.

Geo, proper buzz stuff is coming in January. The current stuff is just a treat for the fans, basically. :)

Wicky12, the new game is not "Shadowgrounds 2" so I don't think you need to worry about the plot getting ruined.

Gameplay will get new additions and some tweaks. I'm quite sure most gamers will like them but let's see when we reveal more of them...

I was confused that a german website proclaimed the trailer to be from Shadowgrounds 2, so sorry.

January came and went, yet no announcement... I'm sure you have a reason for this, but I hope it's not that you've forgotten :P

Speaking of the new game, two things off the top of my head:
- Double-wielding of weapons. Basically, the ability to carry two weapons of a (non-heavy) type and fire both, untill the clips run empty. Then just discard the empty offhand weapon and reload the primary one. This would offer possibilites for great temporary alien blood baths :) If you've ever played Area 51 you know what I mean. But with the difference that you could keep the second pistol, maybe?
- Silencer for the pistol(s). I just feel like it'd fit the sneaky look of the teaser clip in the xmas calenar.

Heh, certainly we have not forgotten. Current plan is to launch the game in mid-to-late February. After that there should be no long delays anymore, and new stuff should be coming almost on a weekly basis.

If Shadow Grounds 2 is coming out along with another exp pack
then I would like to see :

- Network COOP MODE (at least LAN mode)
- If network online mode then please release a free Stand Alone Dedicated Separate Server Program
- Still using top down
- Manual save function in Single Player Story line mode.
- two to four kebyoard & mouse supported in same screen/same pc mode
