Transformers 3DG1

by TechnoSuperguy

Stomp, jump, drive, and transform your way through a free-roaming city as Optimus Prime from Transformers G1! This project is quite incomplete right now, but I think it's time I finally show the 3D game I've been talking about for the last few months.

NOTE: Please remember to unzip all the contents of the .zip file into the same folder, or the game will not work.

Being a big Transformers fan my whole life, I was thrilled to see the 2007 Transformers movie and possibly even more thrilled to play the DS game based on the film, Transformers: Autobots. However, once I discovered that G1 (that is, Generation 1, the original Transformers series that was on back in the 19😬's) versions of Optimus and Megatron were unlockble in the Xbox 360 Transformers Movie game but not in the DS games, I was a bit disappointed. So, to solve my dilemna, I sat down at the computer, booted up GM, and started to work on this: a fully 3D Transformers G1 game, with a play style and physics very similar to Transformers: Autobots. I've been doing a lot of on-and-off work to it since March, and so far I have made a fully transformable Optimus Prime who can drive, jump, and stomp his way around a small, free-roaming city. I'm not a 3D expert and am very unfamilar with modelling programs like Anim8or and Blender, so Optimus and every other model in the game was programmed from scratch using GM's basic built-in D3D models, like ellipsoids, cubes, cylinders, and even floors & walls.

Features:
--1 Player Mode
--2 Player Mode (sorry, no online play)
--Two driving control types
--FPS can be adjusted so the game can run at a good speed, whether your computer is fast or slow
--Two alternate skins for Optimus Prime (Armorless Ultra Magnus and Nemesis Prime)


Things that haven't been added yet:
--Shooting
--Wall Climbing
--Enemies
--More playable characters, like Bumblebee or Megatron

Unfortunately, I have already put more time into this project than I originally intended, and now that I have accomplished my original goal of creating a 3D, Transformers:Autobots-style game starring G1 Optimus, I doubt I will go on to make it into a complete game, or even finish anything on my to-do list.

I hope you enjoy it!
