-Shootmania is already 6 years in work!
-no leveling system
-only a few guns, so you can start and shoot without thinking about which weapon you want to choose!http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/07/15/shoot ... -possible/GameOn:
-pure and simple arcade based fun in the spirit of Trackmania
-‘automatic fun without thinking too much
-no different classes
-Shootmania is primarily designed to be a multiplayer game (upto 32 players)
Shootmania: Storm – Q1 2012http://www.gameon.co.uk/game/preview/sh ... t-round-upCanardPC:
- Surround "generic" containing grass, stone walls and concrete
- Some special blocks: block start / respawn with a clickable screen, block and block checkpoint flag
- Weapon base resembling a rocket launcher
- When walking on a block "marksmanship", we get a sniper that we will keep as long as we remain in the box
- When we enter a tunnel, we get a close combat weapon that we will keep as long as we remain in the box Gamestar:
As the world's first magazine, we were allowed to view an ealier version of Shootmania: Storm, the first Shooter Episode from the maniaplanet universe at Ubisoft in Paris. Basically it has the same engine and the same Editor as Trackmania 2:Canyon , except that we just that we build paths instead of streets and walls instead of an crash barrier. And of course there is shooter specific components such as Jumppads. The rules laid down by us and our map design decide ultimately, what type of shooter we play. Its sure that it will be only an multiplayer shooter - it will have no bots.
Otherwise, no limits of creativity are set . Florent Castelnerac, the project manager, showed us a huge well, the bottom of the well is paved with Jumpads . The result is a mad jump-and-shoot-deathmatch, in which the player at the start of the game jump into the well and then he must try to do kill the enemies during the flight. Another map reminded us again of the classic Tower Defense principle: Team A must achieve the goal as numerous in a set in a walled route. Team B is located on the wall and must prevent that.
After that, temas are swapped.
Our first impression: Shootmania focuses as Trackmania consistently on the quintessence of its genre and leaves everything else in the community. And exactly this could be in times of million productions such as Crysis 2 or call of duty the great strength of Shootmania.http://www.gamestar.de/spiele/shootmani ... 22543.htmlEdge:
-gun model: the bullets are just energy puffs fired from the camera
-no soldiery, blood and pretexts of war
-Edge call it ,,the most pared-down shooter imaginable´´
-multiplayer at least 16, probably 32, and in all likelihood more players
-shootmania will be spectator-, e-sport- and competition friendly
-dedicated server manager and an open source framework.
-Shootmania will have thowaway maps: lets play it five or ten minutes and then play another map
-its not like normal that pros are pros( because they know all maps), no everybody has to learn the new map , thats a new experience
-Hylis call it ,, somewhere in between crazy and realistic´´
-a Pack editor will be available, you can make your own FPS; new models, textures, perhaps, with advanced custom scripts,rulesets and.... all in one file / you can download 1 file including all this things
- Can you make your own AI? answer: I´ve seen Red Dead Redemption, where you go along the river and a guy gets out of the rocks and shoots at you. This is scripted AI, and with our scripting language that should be possible.
- everything to be shared between player is built : brick, servers, maps, everything..PC Gamer:
note: in Pc Gamer there is almost the same as in Edge, I just wrote down the new informations:
-,,Shootmania won't have experience points, 40 levels and 12 classes, etc.´´ Shootmania is a fun challenge that's as pure and good as possible
-the characte models are still being worked on, but as above it will be friendly.
-in Shootmania there is no hardware, no stupid pretexts to killing, no fan service and no gadgets. you get instead building blocks ( smaller than Trackmanias)
-the Pack editor:
the modders will have to make paks, which includes: models, textures, custom scripts, rulesets, etc.
these paks should be installable ingame with one click. after choosing a pak you should only see the ladder and the servers of this certain pak.Game Modes:
-the Butcher Place
,a CTF Game in which both teams bases are exactly eight metres apart, leading to carnage whenever someone tries to stick a flag in one.
-the Trapped Up
, is a tower-defence game in which the defenders respawn rate drops with time, ensuring eventual vitroy for the enemy
, in which the player at the start of the game jump into the well and then he must try to do kill the enemies during the flight.
- called ,,a massacre´´
, because players rush along a precarious ledge towards respawn checkpoints, while under constant pulverising fire from central gun emplacements.General Info:http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/05/27/mad-mad-world/http://www.next-gen.biz/features/the-ex ... aniaplanet
So what you should know about Shootmania:
I think Nadeo wants Shootmania to be an good esport title with good publicity. That's why there is
-no different classes
-only a few weapons
-pure fun game
-no ranking system
-only multiplayer ( up to 32 players)
