Character introduction - Rachael

Rachael was born on the planet of New Europe to parents of political power, 32 years ago. Her parents, both senators of the old republic, introduced her early to the intrigue of the inner cirlces of political power. Over her formative years exposure to the intrigues and plottings of the political warped  her morality and view of life. As with all things times changed and the movement of the malfeasant and foul lawmakers forced the imprisonment and eventual execution of her parents. What was little known even to those at the very top was the level of corruption shown by her parents was beyond that of even the most nefarious powerbrokers of the time. Consequently it was near impossible to accuse or hold them in judgement.

Video update #2

After two months of hard work since last video update, I'm proud to present current status of the development. We are still finalising graphics, sounds, some smaller elements are still missing... but generaly speaking - we made a huge progress!

I have used WinUAE to capture video in full speed, on real Amiga with Blizzard 1260 it has around 20-25 fps, but some optimisation is still needed before demo release. Feel free to post comments!

Brilliant update!

Using original hardware and software is very important for development of Chaos Guns. As you have seen before, Predseda is using classic DPaint IV for the graphics. Arguably the best painting software on Amiga, but I prefer Brilliance. I would like to officialy announce, that our team own original copy, including very sexy hardware key!

Controlling Chaos Guns

One of the most important aspects of any game is to be able to control your character. Chaos Guns is quite complex game - you have opportunity to walk, run, shoot in 8 directions, reload, switch to secondary weapon, change ammo type, pick up and drop items, opening doors, turning switches and equip your characters with tons of guns. I decided to create a control scheme, where you can do everything with single button joystick. Design is heavily inspired by Hired Guns, however, because of different angle of view, there are major changes, which you need to know, before you start playing. I have summarised basic logic below. I hope you will find it interesting.
