Zombie Driver

Post by Pacanus » Fri Oct 02, 2009 6:04 pm

Hello to the entire Ogre3D community!

I'd like to introduce a game from EXOR Studios, based on the Ogre3D engine. The game is called Zombie Driver and here is a couple of screenshots and a movie of the game:

It would be fun if you could get out of the car. Something like GTA but in a resident evil realm :P.
Nice game anyway. As it was stated above dynamics looks attractive a lot.

Really cool, I really like how more really good-looking games use Ogre these days, it is getting adopted by professionals more and more. These graphics look really good! :) And I actually like GTA 1 better than the new ones, so this is definitely a game for me. Top-down racers for the win!

Would you mind sharing some of your development experiences with Ogre with us? Especially since you worked with the Source engine before, I guess you might have some interesting experiences with Ogre, both good and bad? I would love to hear some stuff about that! :)

Looks great, a nice alternative take on "Left 4 Dead" type scenarios. I wanted to see what happened if the car got trapped and the zombies swamped it.

Looks like a lot of fun. Old-school, but with a current-gen polish on it. Very well done!

Thanks for all the comments!
Would you mind sharing some of your development experiences with Ogre with us? Especially since you worked with the Source engine before, I guess you might have some interesting experiences with Ogre, both good and bad? I would love to hear some stuff about that! :)
Its a bit hard to compare Ogre with Source because Ogre is a rendering engine and Source is a full blown game engine with tons of tools. There are of course good and bad sides for both of these solutions. Source has been created with the purpose of developing first person shooters in primarily closed areas (BSP). It is a great engine for that purpose, but if we were to make Zombie Driver on top of Source then it would take us much more time to modify Source to suit our purpose then to develop the game from scratch with Ogre.

From my "level designer/3D artist/project manager" position I must say that it is a lot easier to start working with creating assets in full game engines like Source or Unreal, because of the already established workflow. On the other hand for Zombie Driver we are able to use 3dsmax as our world/asset editor and it suits its purpose quite well. At the moment our city has about 40 000 objects and a total of about 20 000 000 triangles and Ogre is handling that very well.

From a beginner point of view I think it is easier to start working on an established engine like Source. Working with Ogre requires more knowledge from the user e.g. if you don't know about texture filtering methods you probably won't remember about switching to anisotropic filtering which can greatly improve visual quality in some cases.

The thing that was the most annoying for me in the beginning was the fact that all files need to have unique names. Until you learn how to work with that it can be a real pain.

These are just some thoughts from the top of my head. I hope that we can find the time to make a proper post mortem after the project and contribute more to the Ogre community.
