Amnesiac are making a pet-project before we start on our major project and this post is to get anyone who would like to help, this is not a recruitment, you don't have to join the team but of course there will be honourary mentions on our site and forum and in the credits of the mod.
Our first idea is Metal Gear Solid 3 Zero Hour. This will appeal to MGS fans most but can still be fun to play for others. The player plays as the guard team (or the bad guys, whatever you want to call them) and has to build the treading nuclear missile launching tank, the Shagohod. He builds it through time and research and by getting points from killing the CIA agents that try to break into the base and destroy the shagohod.
The player can control the guards and tell them where to patrol and what to do. He can build new units such as flying platforms, Hind attack helicopters, Support units and motorcycle troops.
The CIA agents will come one at a time every so often and try to destroy the shagohod. th agents can't be seen by the player unless the agents have already been spotted by a guard or is out in the open. If the agent has been spotted then the player has some options he can take. He can raise the alarm manually, postponing research and production on the shagohod, send out support units to hunt down and kill the agents, send out members of the COBRA unit to do the same or put guards on high security.
The player wins when he completes research on the shagohod and fires the nuke. He loses when an agent breaks into the base and destroys the shagohod.
Those are the main guidelines of the pet-project, go to our forums and register if you wish to help..
