Official Thread: iMech (8 man FPS FFA over WiFi + 3G)

Hi folks

Randy from Flying Dino here and this is the official thread for our soon to be released WiFi multiplayer game "iMech". I'm here to give you guys all the info on development progress, screenshots, and videos as well as chatting about general aspects of the game.

If you guys haven't already, check out the TouchArcade's WWDC 2009 preview.


So the big question is when is it out? We're happy to tell you that we're submitting on the week of June 15 - 19.
The game's built from the ground up with a home grown 3D engine and network code. We have 8 player, lag-free gameplay over the internet without the need to open ports or fiddling with your router! Our 3D engine features beautiful dynamic lighting, rich colors, and smooth animation even with heavy action onscreen.

At launch we will offer 3 mechs, 5 weapons (machine gun, laser, flamethrower, missiles, and mines), and 5 maps. The game will be offered only in the US for the time being with both East and West coast servers to provide the best possible latency performance.















The game's rapidly evolving even since these hands-on previews have been written but this should give you a good idea of how the game will be.

Looks really good. I would buy it if it was out. Hope this comes out soon. I was wondering, Is there a lot of customization?

No customization on the mechs planned for now, this is strictly a fast pace FP shooter rather than a strategy based mech game such as Mechwarrior.

PS: a batch of new screenshots plus new video coming real soon with tweaked gamma and music!!

Wow, this looks really awesome! The lighting effects look fantastic, and I'm a sucker for anything with mechs. Can't wait to see some updates on this one. Can't help but think some customization woudl be pretty sweet though...
