i've updated the link, but it seems something is wrong with embed videos on the forum.

Either that, or it is some kind of spam protection and user can only post links like that after they were around for some time here. Anyway, it looks cool, but here comes the usual warning: already the menu looks quite close to Bloodlines which is copyrighted by Activision as the whole WoD is by White Wolf. So unless you cleared your game with them, sooner or later a C&D might get to you, as happened with Project Vaulderie. Read more in the thread below yours, or at least join forces with them ;)...

Thanks wesp5, you are legendary!

If C&D ever comes i'll have a whole system/mechanics which can be used to create any kind of RPG game and/or i can sell this as an asset inside unity store, if they never bother me we're set for this game being finished, either way in my view we win!

About the thread you mentioned they're using Unreal but i'm using unity, so unless they are open to switching to unity3d it will be impossible for us to join forces since i dont have any background in unreal and i'm not willing to start from the beggining(it takes years to familiarize yourself enough to be able to create a full game inside any engine, at least in my experience). Not that i wouldnt be open to joining forces, i am, but i think this will not be possible.

PS.: i see what you mean, i don't have a high enough number of posts but i'd like to say that i've been lurking here since way before the forum departed from the original URL(vampire-planet i think) but i never had something worth posting before, but this community is the only one i keep coming back to.

I'd love to see more

Here you go, my friend, let me know what you think!

So what kind of game is it? If it is a remake of Bloodlines you will never be able to publish it and only waste your time, see Project Vaulderie. If it only uses the WoD setting, but is something new and quite far along, you should talk to WW about it!

Okay, I didn't know this. Project Vaulderie was started on Unity too, so you should talk with atrblizzard, whom you can PM here, about it! He actually got to talk with WW about making a new WoD game, but it never went anywhere. Maybe you could join forces and create something new together?

My guess lhide is not concerned with C&D or WW suing him should he manage to raise enough funds for finishing his project beforehand. And, by the way, I did not get why PV team were so afraid of that if they weren't going to release it commercially in the first place. Just post it on TPB and good luck taking that down and suing anonymous devs.
The only weak link is fund raising, but someone located in the third world country like mine could easily post it on KS/Patreon/etc with the ban before reaching the funding goal being the only concern.

This is a new game, i'm using the WoD setting but i'm not recreating bloodlines (this game is good as is in my opinion, your patches did the job for me). I'll contact WW when i feel i have a good enough portifolio for this game, and i'll see if atrblizzard is interested in joining in, thanks for the tip.
Actually as a fun fact i've been following atrblizzard devblogs through the years and he is partially the reason i decided to start this project, since it seems he gave up a long time ago.

You're right on the money, thats my philosophy since the beginning. If i have WW/Paradox blessing that would be wonderfull, if thats not the case, good looking finding me and if they ever do i'll do what i've mentioned before.
About the funding i'm trying to build a community which loves WoD and/or Bloodlines around the game, because only in that way i can make something you could at the very least respect the effort, and also if i had enough money to buy a better rig and some assets that would really speed development, but believe me if nobody ever donate anything this will not stop me!

And now, for something completelly different:

I assume they actually tracked atrblizzards real identity to serve him the C&C letter in the first place, but I don't really know that.

This looks like a plan! Atrblizzard has given up on a Bloodlines remake because even WW and Activision themselves couldn't figure out how to handle that, but I don't believe he has given up on a WoD game. And he knows the people at WW to talk with, so you certainly should contact him as soon as possible.

Doing this needs a lot of trust from the community and what just happened with Project Dogmat, like the developers took all the donated money and then just stopped working, will not make it easy! The only thing I could donate would be my old Gigabyte NVIDIA Geforce 560 Ti GPU and you probably have a better graphics card already, I would guess ;).

The computer set up looks pretty decent in generall, seems like a nice recreation of a modern system though I wouldn't give it a ankh curser or a button on the screen that says hack myself. Do you know there's no audio on the video? I mainly ask because it sh :holy:ows some music being played.

Not bad. I can't tell if all those outfits are female or if its a mix of male and female. I have these notes I made on the Vanilla PC outfits:
Brujah Female: Ok
Brujah Male: Boring   
Gangrel Female: Ok
Gangrel Male: Boring (Hoodie would be good for Nos though)
Malk Male: Wtf?
Malk Female: Wtf?
Nos Female: Ok till last one which is wtf?
Nos Male: Wtf?
Toreador Female: Ok
Toreador Male: 1st two ok
Tremere Female: Ok
Tremere Male: unsure
Ventrue Female: Ok
Ventrue Male: Ok

I was generally more harsh on the male outfits because I only play male really.

I have to admit that I'm already interested! Good luck with this project, hope you'll have all the time, inspiration and will to work you need :smile:

Hi folks, i've lost a relative and had to take a day off, but now i come back with some progress.

All the art and overall look of the game is placeholder as of now, so things like the hack button are needed to debug and test functionality, but they are not going to be present in the final version.
About your question the clothing is a mix of male and female, the right side is male. And if you ever feel like posting some pictures i could use as concept art i'd really appreciate the gesture!
And now a new updated video just for you, my friend! (with sound)  :rock:

Thanks 4ngelgirl, follow me instagram so you can easily see all the updates! Also watch the updated video, im using that song you found! :smile:

Doing this needs a lot of trust from the community and what just happened with Project Dogmat, like the developers took all the donated money and then just stopped working, will not make it easy! The only thing I could donate would be my old Gigabyte NVIDIA Geforce 560 Ti GPU and you probably have a better graphics card already, I would guess ;).

Project dogmat was never a game, it was just a collection of paid assets from unity3d asset store, it was clear from the beginning nothing good would come out of it, but i digress, i really hope i can change this perception and win the community trust by showing content that brings the feeling of having something worth playing.
Thanks for the offer, but yes i do have a better graphics card. But you know you can donate ideas and whatever you feel like.

PS.: I've already contacted atrblizzard but i do not know his response yet, i'll keep this thread updated
