Well, I figured I needed a new side project to my main one to keep the inspiration coming, so I figured, why not try and recreate Hardwar? I know I'm not the only one, and I can see that the other remakes look really good so far.
And another thing. I'm not... experienced... enough to make a 3D remake.
So I thought... 2D Hardwar? Would it work? Well, if you've heard about that 2D "demake" of Team Fortress 2, this is a similar thing. It takes the 2.5D world of Hardwar, and aims to convert it to a 2D top down world. The game mechanics are going to be all diferent- combats going to be a whole new story. But the classic world of Titan, as well as many of the features of Hardwar will still be in Hardwar 2D.
Meh. I'm not even sure if I can create such a game. My skills are not exactly skillful. There are some things in this game that creating from scratch is not going to be easy. I'm interested in others thoughts...
I've created a Tech Demo... well, I kind of whipped it up in about an hour to get a basic system going... really, I wanted to know what you guys thought about it. If anyone's used Construct before, you will know how tricky it is to get 3D graphics in it. I was also wondering... is there any way to get the textures for Hardwar? I was hoping to use them in the buildings, right now they just use a generic metal that I found laying about.
Tech Demo 0.01:
Required: Hardwar font. The game's font may mess up other wise.
