Opera Sentai - Attempting to create the bestest mobile FPS by singing.
This is our first 7DFPS!! Super excited to be part of something so fantastic!! :D
We set out to answer one question: Can we make a better mobile FPS? Because simply put, I have been feeling that every single mobile FPS, even the "best ones" fails at the controls, because aiming and shooting with that silly on-screen button at the same time is nearly impossible, and while novel, accelerometer aiming just isn't quite there yet.
So we set out to find something to improve the mobile FPS experience and we think we found something interesting: that something was VOICE.
But just slotting a voice controlled gun into a typical shooter didn't sit well with me, so the Opera Sentai concept was born! Sentai is japanese for the dudes like the Power Rangers :) A "Battle Team"
edit: Better picture!
Stuff we want to include:
> Defeat evil minions with the power of voice!
> Different types of attacks from lozenge power ups!
> Waves of varieties of enemies!
> Voice as a resource to be managed and spent!
> Pitch controlling the power of your attack! (Right now it's volume, we are looking for how to change that)
> Bluetooth or other multiplayer! (Can't be a Sentai by yourself!)
> Diversity! (Fat Opera Man and Opera Woman are not ye typical heroes and I love that it's not a forced but a wonderful fit)
> A fitting soundtrack which affects your attacks (if you match pitch you get bonuses... Or some such)
There are many obstacles and we have probably over scoped as usual, especially considering it's our first time in Blender and mobile FPS controls and and and... But we'll go as far as we can without killing ourselves :p
