    What do you get when you merge 6 year old Unity code from CORPSE CREW into a full fledged FPS with first person driving on randomly generated evacuation highways, zombie siege mechanics and full factional fighting against flame throwing hazmat corps, crooked national guardsman, infected death squads and survival crafting and resource management?

    I think a winner has emerged from the previous week of my work, which has been devoted to getting Grimoire finally complete and hours of experimentation with my old CORPSE CREW code.

    I am certain now this game will be my priority project as soon as Grimoire V2 is released.

    At present you can change radio stations while driving to hear emergency broadcasts, evacuation reports, bluegrass music and news readers. This alone is a pretty cool mechanic.

    That is interesting and all but what about Grimoire 2? Or a Lovecraftian themed turnbased RPG?

    I think my main priorities now are :

    1. Grimoire V2, Fini, Sealed, Done, Forever (En route now)
    2. Apocalypse Bugout
    3. As-yet untitled RPG based on classic dying earth story
    4. Grimoire II

    "PLUGH" will go in mothballs because I just could not get up a head of steam for it after working on it for a little while.

    I predict you are wrong. The demo I have running indicates I have a real winner going here. Took me years of daydreaming about the mechanics, several successive prototypes of CORPSE CREW and watching a thousand other titles get it wrong.

    The raw panic of the game from the instant it starts is heart pounding immersion and very scary stuff. You'll see.

    I assume those news readers will be broadcasting fake news Cleve.

    And also that the 'zombies' are actually sheeple without a clue since their mobile is dead or soyboys going cold turkey on the soy-lattes with extra sugar.

    No zombies of the undead variety, please. This should be a full blown hardcore realistic tough as nails survival experience (maybe enable VR in version 2 for extra immersion).

    That title sounds like what would happen if the homosexuals got their way.

    Cleve,we know you have transcended human life span, but please think of us ordinary mortals who arent even be alive when these comes out.

    Maybe, inyour time scale, it will a blink of an eye,but it is several lifetime for the average person

    Will begin promoting it on Matt Barton after Grimoire V2 comes out and it is likely there will be lots of gameplay videos posted at the same time. I have some right now almost ready to show.

    Looks interesting, but would be even better if you obtained the license to use the name Apocalypse Now --- not the content, just the name. It seems to be free for a computer game at the moment. :M

    So do I. I continue to do a little research on it. What do you think of it being an old style isometric game with real 2D graphics? Because I have a lot of raw material to work with if so.

    Oh man, I can't wait to see more on the project once you get working on it in 2048.
