Title & Reviews.png

1. SYNOPSIS:
False Server is a dark, psychological, story-driven game about a game developer launching his discord server, while a pandemic is going on outside in the real world.

It's year 2037, there's another pandemic going on outside, and Discord has gone full virtual reality. Salik, a game developer (specifically, an RPG Maker user) has been working on his own server for 3 weeks. And today, is the day to launch it off, and open it to public. It just needs a final check-through, to make sure there aren't any bugs left.
And so the story begins: Lose your admin access, and check through the server as a normal member. As you do... someone might send a DM. Feel free to respond, and then get back to checking the server again. As you continue... you might want to keep an eye on what's going on outside. Some breaking news might be happening relating to the pandemic. Shouldn't be affecting you though, right? It's just everyday news.
Carry on... in your virtual reality. Far separate from the outside reality.

This story is based upon true events I experienced in the three weeks I spent working on my discord server (for the RPG Maker community). And some of the things I came to learn about in this period.

Gameplay:
You simply walk from point A to B, interact, read dialogues, and progress through the story.

There's around 45 minutes of story and content in the Tech-demo. All of it is finalized, and will not be changed or redone. So what's there, is polished.

Wanted to make dashing a bit more fun or... frustrating? So been playing around by adding some visual effects to it:

Almost done with the layout of the 256 x 256 map. (Which I feel was the most difficult part... I hope...)
And so! I've started decorating, and adding in details.

Also, clipped a minute out of the above video, and submitted it to the Maker Video Challenge on twitter:

Added columns and keyboard shortcuts to doodads. To help speed up my workflow.

As a test, I recreated Succour in a realistic 3D style:

Succour 3D Face.png


Here's a closeup on her abs.

And this is her in full view.

I made this as a test, to see if I could create something like this if I wanted to. So I don't have any plans to use this in a particular way in the game. (I'll figure something out though. :D )


You can check Succour's design and art transformation in this tweet below, from 2018 all way the way to today in 2021.

Heat has been making me lazy, and so I decided to procrastin- I mean, experiment a bit. (I should be working on the actual game...)

Anyways, I made a realistic looking 3D model of Succour and Codex (from the game), then made them into sprites, and played around with having them interact in a 2.5D scene.





This is how Succour is looking in real 3D, compared to her previous forms:

I made this 2.5D scene as a test... but then I got ideas for a short story that takes place exclusively in this scene.

And so now, this part is official. And will be added to ⟁False Server as optional side-content. (Just need to finish and add the story.)







And also, here is what the above scene looks like in optional in-game generated color filters (that you can select from menu)
