The dream is a Gorkamorka open world RTS/RPG (or whatever genre it'd need to be for vehicular, melee and shooty combat, base building, lots of looting and team management) on a scale similar to Fallout, GTA V or even Just Cause, but I still think that, at least on a limited scale, something like it should be possible here.
Interested by this. The problem I found with LBP was that it just wasn't easy enough (control-wise) to invest enough time into it. I speak purely for myself of course, as I've seen what people with better skills than myself can do.
And just like how mostly everything in LBP was a platformer I just hope with this game not everything looks like a generic fantasy.
At gamescom, Team Dakota showcased several innovative features for future “Project Spark” creators through the reveal of the “Project Spark” voice and motion capture, which uses the power of Kinect to bring you into the game like never before. Players can capture facial animations, body motion and voice and sound to create custom character animations, dialog or even cinematic cut scenes.
Express yourself with facial capture technology and record dramatic scenes, make your own attacks, and much more. In addition, you can record your own sayings or sounds using the Kinect microphone, bringing the audial customization of your living world to an all new level of fun.
Voice and motion capture enables:
•Facial Expression Capture – Users can record their face and have it applied to an in-game character
•Animation Recording – Do a new attack, full body motions, gestures, etc.
•Record audio and modulate – Speak a line, singing, etc. Modulate the sounds in a variety of ways
The result is being able to make your own animations or even cinematic cut scenes when you combine all three (face + body + voice).
Team Dakota also announced the official beta launch dates for “Project Spark” – invitations will begin rolling out to registered beta participants starting at the end of October 2013 for Windows 8 devices and January 2014 for Xbox One creators. Players can register for the beta at www.joinprojectspark.com
Very impressed with this. Why do people think it's a bad thing that it's on more than one platform? So what if it isn't XBO exclusive, gives me a chance to make some games on PC with a mouse and then share with friends on 360 and XBO.
Really liking this, especially after wasted potential with Kodu.
