Project: William's Adventures

William's Adventures is a 3d action game (like Rayman 2). Summary of the Scenario: Creatus are peaceful inhabitants of their village who live in all quietude. There are several species of Creatus, like Diamantus, Fourarmus, Withoutsensus or Stonus. Each one has qualities and defects which are particular for him. Creatus thus, lived quietly in their village until the day when the Processus (tyrannical robots) invaded them. Processus had designed a diabolic machine making it possible to destroy the will of Creatus. For this day, creatus-zombies (those which passed in the machine) obey any person giving them an order. They are condemned to remain to work in the factories of the Processus. Those produce robots which fight the remainder of Creatus (the resistant ones) and the people surrounding. But there remains a hope! William, a young Diamantus of resistance leaves to the adventure in order to save the remainder of Creatus. You will have to guide it through multiple dangers it will have to cross. William's Adventures will be diffused under SPL license as an example of Gamma game. The Status of this project is : "Partially complete", the Scenario is complete, and the Music is partially complete but very cool, and the Programmation is easy, due to the use of Gamma. You can help us : we're looking for developpers.

Doesn't sound too promising to me - the plot and music are partially done, but none of the programming?  I'm very dubious about calling the programming "easy" because of the library being used, especially when the library hasn't been written yet.

Everything's possible, but not everything's fun...

I'm the project owner of William's Adventures

There is some big mistakes.

First of all, what I call scenario isn't only plot but level design too, and artwork, and so on...
And the programming is at an reasonably advanced stage : of course I won't send a project proposal without any programming experience with the project.

The game will be an example of what can be by open-source developers and to prove the power of Java. And it will increase the number of games available under platforms such as Linux and MacOS.

So, don't worry, this game is not a bad usage of Java Games community resources.

9 persons are already working on this project.

It's more easy to write a game with a game engine, than with only OpenGL. And the part of Gamma that WillAdv uses is already written.
