I'm not exactly positive if this is the right forum for this, but I'll give it a shot. Orbital Alright, so I have the entire grand plotline developed, but let me give you a run-down of the features of the game, or rather what I have in mind for it. My Name: Jesse Humphry
My Age: 16 (17 as of August 2nd, 2010) Name of Project: Orbital Setting: A different galaxy, which I have invented many planets for already. Background: The galaxy, at one time, was engulfed in an incredibly destructive war for two hundred years until the Galactic Alliance of Trade and Commerce (GATC) was formed. The organization brought peace to the galaxy and became the primary government, which led the galaxy through 120 years of peaceful and prosperous times. However, an organization opposing the Alliance's rule has sprung up, calling themselves the Anti-Alliance Confederacy (AAC). You are Cameron Forcade, a Sergeant in the GATC military assigned aboard the flagship Peacekeeper IV. The AAC stages an attack which triggers war between the two factions. Fight through up to 36 different planets and many different mission types. Side quests offer you extra experience to upgrade your weapons and armor. With plot twists at every corner, you will soon find that you don't fight for the GATC or against the AAC...you fight for yourself. Here I have included a piece of the plot that I have designed. Please email me if you're interested. I'd like to get this made.
Orbital – Grand Scale Plotline Pretense: What’s gone on before. For 120 years, the galaxy has existed in peace for the most part. Any wars during this time have mostly been civil wars. The Galactic Alliance of Trade and Commerce (GATC) has been the center point for most of the galaxy’s peace and law enforcement. This is not to say that violence and attacks do not happen, but in comparison with the previous 200 years, the current times are much more desirable and planet-wide destruction is no longer commonplace. Over the past 75 years, the GATC has been experiencing increased difficulty with controlling the riots and uprisings against their government across the galaxy. They have commissioned the Federation of Galactic Law Enforcement (FGLE) to enforce the peace and keep riots and uprisings non-violent. Also created was the Galactic Alliance Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (GA-ODST), a form of paratroopers that drop from space into hostile situations via Aerial Insertion Pods (AIPs) or by Skeleton Rapid Deployment (SRD). They became an increasingly influential force in some major civil wars and intra-system conflicts. One commander of the GA-ODST, Hudaw Madenious, has become the commanding general of the 202nd AstroBorne, also called the Two-Oh-two. The regiment has become the most prestigious in the military as a result of his leadership abilities and aggressiveness. Also, the Commando Invasion Force, or CIF, was commissioned to engage in secret and sensitive operations. Kor Madenious, brother to Hudaw, is a Sergeant in this special branch of the military. The Galactic Armada was created to handle all space-faring missions, both economic and militaristic. Cameron Forcade is a Sergeant of the Army aboard the Peacekeeper IV, the flagship of the GATC. The Peacekeeper IV follows in the footsteps of its three predecessors, which were all decommissioned due to advances in technology. A group of forces opposing the GATC have formed, calling themselves the Anti-Alliance Confederacy (AAC). They have been gathering forces and staging a number of civil wars and violent protests across the galaxy in hope of weakening the GATC before the AAC begins its assault. When the story begins: What’s about to happen. The GATC flagship Peacekeeper IV is orbiting the planet Alpha Kai when an AAC capital ship unexpectedly drops from Factor 9 (Speed of light to the ninth power) and maneuvers within firing range. The battle lasts for three hours before the crewmen are ordered to abandon ship. Cameron Forcade and 2 others man a 6-man shuttle and escape the ship. While heading for Alpha Kai, the AAC ships blockade them. They are forced to head for Beta Kai, the ice planet in the Kai System, at Factor 1. The trip takes them three days. They arrive at Beta Kai and make an emergency landing in a NexGen laboratory compound. Simultaneously, the GATC declares war on the AAC. The 202nd AB is directed to drop into Acura and take Anium City. The operation begins well and the government quarter falls easily. However, once the 202nd heads for the Palace quarter, the resistance thickens and the battle becomes a stalemate. Meanwhile, the AAC stages an attack on Sabata, targeting the Octospire. The Octospire is the heart of Sabata, being one of the only surface cities on the planet. The Octospire is composed of a large tower in the center with eight branches breaking from its foundation, each branch housing residential, commercial, industrial, and governmental areas. All eight branches are connected by an intricate tram system, which is based in the Central Spire. The AAC plans to take the tram system by controlling the central hub, thereby taking the city. The CIF is inserted to retake the tram system and set landing zones for the Galactic Marine Assault Corps to begin the recapture of the city. Both battles result in early key victories for the GATC. Hudaw Madenious is awarded the Alliance Cross of Honor, the highest military award, for his actions on Acura. He is offered command of Anomaly, a Scarek-class vessel with high firepower and the ability to drop nearly 400 troops simultaneously. He rejects the command but wishes to lead the GA-ODST unit aboard the vessel, which would allow him to continue performing military drops. Kor Madenious and his unit successfully retake the tram system of the Octospire. In an act of incredible courage, Kor takes Tram 4 to the enemy location in the Military Spire and quickly dispatches enemy officers, sending the rest of the units into chaos. His men arrive in time to witness Kor single-handedly taking 125 prisoners. He is awarded the Brace of valor for his actions, which helped the GATC secure their hold on Sabata. However, Cameron Forcade and the others have been listed as AWOL shortly after the destruction of a NexGen lab on Beta Kai and the loss of what the NexGen survivors call ‘Experiment 21’. The AAC sends its forces towards the planet, unaware that the research facility has been destroyed. When they arrive, they annex the planet for its strategic location and begin terraformation to transform the planet into more suitable living conditions. The GATC lose six capital ships and 760,000 soldiers in the attempt to retake the planet, known as the Beta Kai Offensive. Hudaw and Kor Madenious and Anomaly are sent to Brechor to investigate a security breach in Bloodmine Shaft, a Quantainium mining facility. When the facility is compromised, Anomaly extracts all personnel to a safe distance before the facility is almost completely destroyed. Cameron Forcade is among the survivors. After further investigation conducted by the captain of Anomaly, Cameron is imprisoned on the ship until they can return to Alpha Kai. Kor and Hudaw are sent to question him in the meantime. Cameron reveals what he found while on Beta Kai: A series of immoral experiments performed on several different humanoid and non-humanoid species to create some sort of advanced infantry. The evidence is reported to the captain. On Alpha Kai, Anomaly transports Cameron to the Military Grand Courtroom. Cameron is charged with destruction of GATC property totaling at 125 Trillion Chits, and High treason. Shortly after being read his charges, the CIF and Hudaw Madenious storm into the courtroom and take Cameron while the Anomaly bombards the military outpost. The outpost is destroyed and Cameron is safely returned to Anomaly. The ship sets off for an isolated moon of Takara at Factor 11 to regroup, rest, and draw plans for their next attack. After nine weeks, they head for Sabata.
Compensation: I'd like to maybe get this sold, but let us be realistic, it's highly unlikely, so unfortunately this means that there will be no compensation. I apologize if this inconveniences you. Previous Experiences: Well, i've been in music for almost 8 years, I have written for about 3 or 4 now. That is my field and I will stick to it. Needed Positions: Programming, Coding, Concept Art, Writing, Modelling, Modding, Mapping. Technology: This will be aimed at PC, so I'm hoping that we can use the Unreal Engine. Game Type: This will be an action-filled 3D FPS game. Feedback: All kinds. I need help and ideas. If you have any questions or are interested and need more information, please contact me. I am only a writer and idea-man. I need programmers, modellers, financial support, etc. Again, my email is [EMAIL="firstname.lastname@example.org"]email@example.com[/EMAIL]
Anyhow, if this game ever gets published, everybody knows the story already. :p
Not all of it. This is an INCREDIBLY tiny portion of the game.
