Genesis the Game

About Genesis:

A mystical tome once forgotten has resurfaced from ancient myth and legend. Those who believed in its lore and brave enough to search may find the priceless artifact. The pages that hold the very essence of life. Genesis.

Details:

Genesis began as a level created for the DePaul UT3 Mod “Dawn Of The Spell”. However the mod was never officially released to the public so I continued work on the level for both Dawn of the Spell as well as converting it to a very small capture the flag arena.


In the current version of the game, no healing spells or pickups were available and limited player's choices in combat. Here I choose to help alleviate this problem by adding a central area in which player's have little cover but are slowly healed over a period of time. This spot allows for a good risk vs. reward choice as enemies from the sides back have clear views of the vulnerable player as he is healed.


The central healing area is complemented by a magic book and use of the "Necrify Effect" as well as a post processing sphere. All of which help let player's know when they have entered the healing area.


Special thanks to Spoondog for his Necrify effect/tutorial and allowing me to use it in CTF-Genesis. The link to the Spoon Dog's tutorial can be found here: https://forums.epicgames.com/threads/683154-quot-Necrify-quot-Effect-Tutorial-Explanation .
