For Red Dwarf fans - at last a game !!

and for anyone else , its a 1-4 player fun action adventure explorational puzzle type game , explore many locations and board spaceships , to save the good guys, kill the bad guys , and erm destroy the ugly guys, looting ,plundering, working with your team mates, or pilfer your buddies bodies ,kill the good guys , shoot pool with the bad (just kidding they cant play pool) but the choice is yours- how you tackle each location, youll be rewarded for saving lives obviously, maybe with the code to the teleporter or a curry, Many weapons, power ups and shops to restock your goods.
honestly people , this game really comes into its own when you have 2 3 or 4 players sitting beside you, two on the keybrd and two joypads,or 4 joypads even. I have more ideas to add to this but Ill see what the general feedbacks like after this little demo-

Ive used tgf for thousands of years and owned tgf2 for years but I could never get round to using tgf2 until I decided to give it a whirl a few weeks ago, WOw Im totally amazed at the power of tgf2 in comparison to tgf, This little demo was knocked up in a few weeks in between my busy busy life, I need more hours in the day. but I will finish this project

A very cool idea making a game based around a UK TV series.

lol thanks ,

although i made the game first and had the characters etc, then of course last week i decided to make it red dwarfish since i am a bit of a fan of it, also realising that there are many fans of it, it could get recognition maybe hopefully.

thanks for the interest and any questions let me know.

a picture of the controls are shown above, you can see how the game is progressing in the projects section - as i update things ; Ill let u know there

dont forget you can reconfigure the keys
so that you can use YOUR favourite crew member
try setting them all the same and you'll have control over all four players at once
or try setting two the same and two different so that 2 players each control 2 crew members each
a bit of a variation going on there

thus if a one player used 4 crew members youll quadruple the shots fired
simple maths eh

Hello and Welcome to Mark McCauleys Red Dwarf
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
A Game for 1-4 players using one pc.

(more players in the online version coming .Where you can either join forces or have team battles etc etc.

Many modes including capture the Flag , Team Death match,and so on)

Can be completed in many ways , Flying in space or walking around locations.
-------------------------------------
About the Game
-------------------------------------

Loosely based on the Tv Series Red Dwarf.

The Red Dwarf is a mining ship cruising the cosmos in search of vital Elements.

A radiation leak has wiped out the entire crew except for Dave Lister who happened to be frozen in stasis at
the time ,as punishment for refusing to hand over his (pregnant)pet cat and Arnold J Rimmer who was killed but
later brought back as a Hologram. A light projection of his former self, unable to feel or eat even,who also had
to spend 3 million years on his own until the radiation leak had been given the all-clear by the Red Dwarfs
onboard computer, Holly, (who has an IQ of 6000), and Dave Lister was able to come out of stasis.
During the 3 million years that Lister was frozen in time , his cat had given birth and their descendants evolved
over time to become human in the same way apes evolved to Men.Thus Cat is the third crew member.
The fourth member is a mechanoid , part human , part droid that has been programmed to serve and protect
humans and goes by the name of Kryten.

for more info on the crew and the actual tv programme pls visit www.red-dwarf.com
-------------------------------------

In this game the Red Dwarf is badly damaged and the crew set off in the Starbug , one of the Red Dwarfs' smaller
onboard vessels in search of these elements. During an intergalactic space jump the Starbug gets damaged and
the crew now need to find elements around the current galaxy they are in, to fix the crippled bug.

The elements can be found anywhere in the cosmos, On Planets,Moons , inside asteroids, or aboard other craft.
Some Locations have Alien Life forms and care should be taken especially whenever there are other no threatening
life forms in which case you should try to save those in need. You'll be rewarded if you do.

However you can ignore any peace keeping rules when it comes to saving your own hide.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Controlling the Starbug( in Aerial mode)(overhead)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Using the mouse -
Both buttons to thrust forward.
Right button to turn left.
Left button to turn right.
None to slow down.
Space button to fire current weapon.
avoid crashing into asteroids .

various controls on the dashboard-
select Proton Blast,Lazer Shot or Cannon fire to destroy various rocks
and other switches (activate Hop Drive)(Toggle Warning on/off) etc

if positioned above planets, moons, spacecraft and stationary,
Holly will give you the rundown of what to do next .
Lclick Holly for info or Rclick to disembark.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Controlling the Starbug in Hyperspace mode(Holly Hop)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The starbug will follow the mouse.
holding Rbutton down will turn the ship steeply left.
holding Lbutton down will turn the ship steeply right.
space button to shoot.
avoid crashing.
-------------------------------

The different sections of the starbug are prioritized according to needs of the crew safety in this order

Oxygen
Brakes
Steering
Shield
Weapon 1
Weapon 2
Weapon 3
Warp
Holly Hop Drive (hyperspace)
*more to come?

If a vital section is damaged , it will be repaired by using an element from a lesser prioritised section.
For instance if the shield was on full power and the steering took a knock,the steering will be repaired
using an element from the shield lowering the shields power and so on.

Click on Holly for help and status during game.

Holly can warn of any dangers, nearby craftor planets and has a wealth of data and information on just
about everything in the universe. Holly can also overrun the manual controls of the starbug and will engage
autopilot , guiding the starbug to nearby elements.
(Useful if you can't be bothered to do it yourself -let Holly collect everything for you- A Game that plays by itself!).
To use this feature simply leave the controls for a short time this also acts as a self playing screensaver.
To override the Autopilot simply move the mouse , or press any mouse button or space bar .
