So it's a platformer?
No, I'm not being a smartass.
Replay Studios develops "Survivor".
Here's the website. I mean, this sounds like one of those things that you throw out there in a development brainstorm to get a laugh. Not something you actually base a game on.SURVIVOR is a 3rd-person Disaster Survival Game with highly interactive locations, based on famous, authentic-historical disaster scenarios. In independent game episodes, the player will experience some of the most dramatic disasters of the 20 - 21st century. The original single player game concept has never been seen before. We call this unique genre REALITY GAMING. Anyone who likes to know how it feels like being aboard the Titanic after she has hit the iceberg, could go for a try.
Survivor offers GTA like player freedom game play mechanics that forces the player to participate in the most dramatic and well known disaster scenarios: sinking of the Titanic, Hurricane Andrew, 9/11, Hiroshima and the giant earthquake in Mexico in 1985. While many subquests must be fulfilled within the disaster scenarios, the main goal of the game is always pure survival.
So it's a platformer?
Oh great... Yet more fodder for the 'Anti-Video Game' drones led by that bottom feeding abortion of a lawyer from Florida who so loves to issue class-action suits against the games industry.
Who in their right minds would even contemplate making a game like this?
Whats next? A 9/11 flight sim???
I went to that link. I saw some text on the front page.
It screamed "DODGY" so I closed the window.
I think you just have to look for yourselves.
Sounds fantastic.SURVIVOR is a 3rd-person Disaster Survival Game designed for all platforms (PC and consoles). Anyone who likes to know how it feels being aboard the Titanic after she hit the iceberg, could go for a try.
I'll save these folks a nice spot in hell...
Actually that part sounds interesting. I don't think that it will be handled correctly but that concept for that event, escaping a sinking ship, sounds fun for a simulation.Originally Posted by Andrew Mayer
Isn't that already available in the form of Microsoft Flight Simulator? Certainly recall the media in the UK at the time picking up on the fact that it was more than possible to hit both the pentagon and WTC towers and that MS were considering (did they do it?) patching it as a result.Whats next? A 9/11 flight sim???
Yes they did. With MS FS2002, you would sail right through buildings.
Of course, it was possible to patch the collision detection back in, which I did because I enjoy landing a Chinook on top of difficult places and sending the screenshot to my brother and asking him if he can do it in his.
